Mahtay Meets…

This week Mahtay met with leading fashion, travel, fitness, beauty and life blogger, Em Sheldon!

What is your daily/weekly fitness routine? Do you mix up?

I try to work out 4-5 times a week and mix this up every time. Whether it’s spinning, barre or hot yoga, it depends on my mood and what classes are available. Usually I’ll do HIIT mixed with weights or my own circuits

What health and fitness rules do you swear by?

The 80/20 rule, never deprive yourself.

Do you follow a certain diet or have a certain approach to food? 

My approach is balance and everything in moderation. I’m all about the 80/20 rule and think it’s so important to never deprive yourself.

Do you have a favourite workout? 

I love hot yoga and barre for toning but HIIT for quick results.

Is there a particular class or club that you enjoy?

I love spin, I go to David Lloyd and all their classes are amazing
