How TV star Lauren Phillips beats exercise boredom

By guest blogger, television personality and FILA Australia ambassador Lauren Phillips

Like all of us (whether we admit it or not) I get bored of doing the same exercise over and over, so in order to keep it interesting I need a range of different types of training.

Here’s a few things I do to ward off exercise boredom…

Boxing is my constant. I train with Jimmy from One Way Fitness and while we box every session he also keeps it fresh by throwing in those dreaded ropes, rowing, weights and other strenuous core exercises. Lauren Phillips

Squeeze in a classic gym session. On a busy day or after a long day in the studio I try to hit the gym and squeeze in a Grid Class at Virgin Active. It’s a quick half hour high intensity work out that really makes you sweat.

On pointe with Barre. I love to mix it up with a bit of ballet and relive my dream of being a ballerina (to some extent!). FILA’s new season ‘Barre Collection’, which is dance-inspired features cool cropped tees like the FILA Dance Tee which I pair with the FILA Dance Tights as well as some luxe pieces with tulle overlays like the FILA Barre Tank and FILA Barre Tights that me feel confident and look like a total pro-ballerina.

I’ve never been too keen on running in the dark which makes it harder in winter when I work long hours filming, but now as the days are getting longer, I’ll for sure be pounding the pavement a little more regularly in FILA’s new season VelloSpeed Energized Sprinters and switching up the routes to keep it fresh and interesting.

Low-impact favourites. I can’t go past a Bikram yoga class and reformer Pilates. Especially now with the new FILA Flow Tank made with Quick Dry technology, I feel comfortable and dry during those hot yoga sessions.

Recovery is key. Recovering from a workout is just as important as the training in my eyes. I love jumping in the sauna after a session and then straight to the spa for some relaxation and wind down.
