HEALTH A LA MODE IN PARIS
The Movement is coming
Throughout the last four years I have spent in Paris, what started as a small vibration has turned into a bigger movement: it seems that health is becoming à la mode in Paris.
I no longer strut around naked and alone in the change rooms at KLAY gym pretending it's my own billion-dollar bathroom. Slowly but surely, it has filled up with beautiful motivated Parisiennes compelled by the promise of health, fitness (and the free body oil).
The challenge of Paris
Let's not sugar coat it though. Paris will test your motivation. It's shit-smeared streets may slip you over. The cold dark mornings can you keep you under the covers and the sheer futility of working out when proceeded by a brunch consisting of different forms of butter, make it all seem at times like a little too much effort.
Don't give up
We're in it together. This site is designed to help you look past all that to celebrate a Paris that can be beautiful, light, healthy and strong. How to prepare for your first cours à pied, where to find the elusive chia seed in Paris, why you absolutely must start using a tongue cleaner tomorrow - it's all decrypted, laid out ready for the taking.
