Proskins Ambassador Kirsty Gallacher Says ‘Fit Exercise Around Your Lifestyle’
February 14, 2017
Broadcaster and TV journalist Kirsty Gallacher has teamed up with advanced sports and compression wear specialists, Proskins, to become their brand ambassador. Last week, I worked out alongside Kirsty at the Proskins Press and Blogger Event at BXR, a boxing styled boutique gym in London’s stylish Marylebone.
2017 is set to be an exciting year for Kirsty, who is currently working closely with the brand as they extend their Proskins Active range due to be exclusively launched this summer.
“After discovering Proskins and the benefits of compression wear, I was delighted to work with a brand for women like myself that exercise, multi-task and juggle and want to feel comfortable and in top form around the clock” said Kirsty. “I try to train at least 3 times a week in the morning before heading to Sky Sports News”.
Eating a healthy diet combined with regular exercise is a fit-body formula she learned growing up with her nutritionist mother. Giving Luxuria Lifestyle readers her own fitness motivation tips, Kirsty told us “Fitting exercise around your lifestyle is the key to success. There has to be a balance between being healthy and having fun, as the key is consistency with your training”.
Kirsty believes that being comfortable when you exercise is really important – her personal favourite from the Proskins range are the classic black and grey marl leggings because “they’re so versatile and comfortable to wear. I love exercising in them and wear them when I’m on the go from the school run to the gym”.
During the 20 minute HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) session with Kirsty, we were instructed by her Personal Trainer Mel Dean. To lose weight and tone your body, Kirsty reminded us that cardio is just as important as strength training whilst also remembering to ‘mix it up’. The HIIT workout session included intense circuit training type moves on the bike, using kettle bells, fitness balls, forward lunges, squats, core plank moves and mountain climber moves.
For the HIIT cardio session I wore the Proskins Slim Luxe panel vest top (£44.95) and Proskins Slim Luxe panel Capri black leggings (£64.96). New for SS17, is the Proskins Slim Anti-cellulite Slimming Range, designed to provide an innovative new way to smooth and shape your body. The ‘Proskins Slim’ range is constructed from patented micro-encapsulated yarn containing active slimming ingredients, which when combined with high-tech compression, improve overall skin condition, leaving our skin soft and smooth.
Also available is the new SS17 ‘Slim Ruched’ by Proskins Anti-Cellulite Slimming Range, providing an innovative new way to smooth and shape your body with ruching at the bust to create a flattering neckline.
