The beginning of the year is always seen as a fresh new start. One of the main new years resolutions that everyone makes is to lead a healthier lifestyle, going to the gym (joining the gym), trying new workout classes and generally leading a healthier lifestyle.
Wednesday the 1st of February we celebrated and launched our Society Detox Sports Day in the Boutique. This included many activities and the launch of our Sportswear brand, ELLE Sport. We got to view the new spring ELLE Sport range and offered an exclusive discount off the brand. The brand gives you something different, it offers you colour, pattern and texture whilst maintaining high performance fabrics, reflective taping and concealed pockets to put your necessities in when your working out. We love Elle Sport, all of the pieces are so comfortable and wearable.
We had our resident stylist Claudia Marcellis popping in to help combine sportswear with your everyday wear. We all have those moments in the gym when we finish our workout and are rushing to get into the shower and then to get to our next destination. We forget something, a top or even a pair of shoes, the list goes on.
Claudia was there to help pick out pieces that you can combine your sportswear with, without feeling like you have to pack your whole wardrobe into your sports bag. Sports luxe is a huge trend that has been around for a while and we believe is here to stay. More and more in clothing you can see the sporting attributes that are being contributed into every daywear. YAYA is a great brand to combine your sportswear with, the casual simple silhouettes, loose style, simple colours work well against Elle Sport. Below are some examples of how you can combine both brands, layer them under or over each other, they are all so comfortable and wearable for the day.
We welcomed BeActive Clinic into the Boutique that morning both Sue and Daisy had two large bags filled with Yoga mats and blocks for our Yoga class that was starting at 9.15am.
The WSGirls and some of our customers started the day off with a yoga class taken by Daisy. The class was all about getting your day off to the best start, relaxing but creating that positive energy to get you ready for the day. Stretching out all of their tight muscles, bringing them into complicated but useful positions to encourage their breathing and flow throughout the moves. All of the girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves and felt revitalised, relaxed and ready to start styling. Thank you to Daisy who was a fantastic instructor and we would highly recommend, especially if you are new to Yoga, she has a great eye and is ready to get stuck in and help you through the moves.
The lovely Jade from BeActive, was offering our customers a 20-minute massage session. Sports massage is a therapy that anyone can benefit from. We all suffer from those daily aches and pains and a simple sports massage from Jade can alleviate muscle tension, aid recovery from exercise and reduce any discomfort. Victoria enjoyed a leg massage from jade and thoroughly enjoyed herself, her muscle pain in her foot and leg seemed to soften and relax for her busy day ahead.
BeActive is new to Hertford and currently have a fantastic offer; you can receive 30% off when you book onto your first class. The clinic is open Monday-Saturday and they require that booking a class is essential. They offer a wide range of Yoga and Pilate classes that anyone can attend. Then afterwards why not treat yourself to an amazing massage from the lovely jade to relieve those aches and pains.

We had the lovely Nicky Chandler from Senova Cycles in Hertford come and join us for the day. This was very exciting as customers could try and see for themselves why riding a bike is a great form of exercise but also a good sport for socialising. Nikki is very passionate for bikes and for cycling and it is her desire to help and inspire ladies to get on a bike and be happy and comfortable whilst riding.

We also had the lovely ladies from Natural Health, which is just across the road from us. They brought over a selection of lovely goodies that everyone could try and enjoy. I often go over there in my lunch break for a sneaky treat, knowing that the treat is healthier than a chocolate bar is always a bonus.

We would like to say a big thank you to all of the independent sports retailers who participated in our event. It was such an enjoyable day and we learnt so much about all the different sports that they had to offer. We are already looking forward to another one in the sunnier months. Watch this space.
