GINA_PAPADOPOULOS_personal_trainer_pilates_londonIt’s a new year and we are all making resolutions for 2018. Here, our fantastic trainer Gina gives her tips on our resolutions, health and workout suggestions.


TP: It’s a busy time of the year. How do you like to zone out and destress?
Gina:  I love meditating first thing in the morning when I get up. It really helps me relax and gives me positive energy throughout the day.


TP: What advice would you give to help achieve the goals we’re all set for 2018?
Gina: Whenever you set goals you have to write them down. Start with one or two goals and make them realistic for you. Also, make sure it can be measured. Meaning a goal that you can see proof of when it’s accomplished. Also, hold other people accountable for this goal. So, tell one or a few friends about this goal and tell them the time limit you have put to achieve it.


TP: Tell us about your Pilates retreats. What are you planning for 2018?
Gina: I will only do one pilates retreat next year. But I am still looking for a nice and fun location for pilates and hiking. I will keep you all up to date and add fliers at the studio.


TP: How should people stay body confident?
Gina:  First of all, we should all love ourselves no matter how we look. The most important thing to stay body confident is to eat and healthy balanced meals and exercise.


TP: What’s the muscle group used the least by the average person?
Gina:  The rotator cuff muscles that connect the arm to the shoulder. A good exercise for these is to hold a light Dyna Band with both hands and pull apart (literally) as far as your arm can rotate, keeping the elbows next to the ribs.


TP: What’s a fitness video/blog post you enjoyed?
Gina:  This video from John Garey. It’s a full body stabilizer, works the core muscles arms chest and it’s very challenging).


TP: Which health/fitness book would you recommend?
Gina:  The China Study by T. Colin Campbell is a book on health and diet, the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted and the startling implications for diet, weight loss, and long-term health.  Buy on, click here>.


TP: Your favourite song from our playlist?
Gina:  Seeb – Breathe from the April 2016 playlist.


TP: Your favourite holiday activity?
Gina:  Walking in central London when there are no buses and traffic.


TP: Finally, if you could choose only one thing, what’s an important tip you’d like everyone to know before starting Pilates?
Gina:  Before starting anything, know why you are doing it. If you have a goal as to why you want to exercise you will stick to it and will see improvement.

Tempo_pilates_student_of_the_monthA regular student since the start of 2016, Georgia tells us how Tempo Pilates fits around her schedule, the results the reformer pilates classes have given her and her London go-tos.

When and what made you decide to join Tempo Pilates?
I joined Tempo about a year and a half ago – I was looking for a studio near work that did great classes. The X-Press class is amazing as it is 45mins long but still very intensive and can be done all within lunchtime during work. So there are no excuses not to workout daily. 

How many times a week do you come?
I go to Tempo Pilates 4-5 times a week, Monday – Friday.

What I like the most about Tempo Pilates is…
I got into Pilates from my mother, however finding a good reformer pilates studio was tricky – that was until I found the Gymbox Covent Garden studio. My favourite is the X-Press class. Within 45 minutes you work out your entire body – build up a sweat, whilst listening to great music. The routines and positions constantly change so you are always challenging your body and pushing yourself, making each class exciting. For me, it is the only workout where you see true results – muscles are defined without bulking and you really see your strength improve.

What motivational quote do you associate with?
Never love anybody who treats you like you’re ordinary” – Oscar Wilde.

What is your favourite playlist Tune?
Best Fake Smile – James Bay, such an uplifting song.

What’s a great film/exhibition/show you’ve seen recently?
I recently saw Ink at the Duke of York Theatre – literally opposite the Gymbox | Covent Garden studio. This show tells the story of the birth of The Sun. Highly recommend it.

Any favourite local places for food and drinks you can recommend?
Mr Ji in Camden Town – a brand new Taiwanese chicken pop-up restaurant; not the traditional greasy fried chicken. So delicious and doesn’t leave you feeling guilty after…

Well done Georgia.
