New Year treats

Urgh. It’s back to work day for most of us. We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year and are looking forward to all the possibilities that 2014 might bring.

We know that going back to work can make you feel a bit blue so we’ve got a few cheeky New Year offers for you that we hope will help.

untitledFirst up - if you’ve never tried a class at Tempo Pilates before then now is your chance. Becca and Christine are both huge fans of their Reformer Pilates classes set to music. There’s no getting away from it the classes are tough - you may discover muscles that you didn’t know you had but you’ll leave feeling a satisfying ache and you’ll probably find yourself wanting to go back for more. It’s definitely addictive.

To claim your free class all you need to do is visit www.tempopilates.com and create an account for your chosen studio - either E8 or WC2. Proceed to the online store and select ”1 class - First Purchase £12.50 offer” and then enter the promotional code which is #ZEROCALORIE

The offer is valid until 31st Jan to new students and is limited to the first 60 people that use the code so get booking quick!

NatOur second New Year offer is a great one for any of you who have just started training for a spring race and your muscles are feeling it. Natural Hero have created a range of products to help with recovery - a muscle rubs, soak and spritz. The natural formulations all contain pH balanced and skin conditioning ingredients so they feel and smell great when applied to the skin.

Natural Hero are offering all Advent Calendar readers 20% off online purchases using the discount code ADVENT20 at checkout. Your muscles will thank you for it!

Last but by no means least our friends at Workplay Bags have extended their discount offer to everyone - not just those people that entered their competition on the calendar. So if Santa didn’t bring you everything that you wished for, or you’ve got some Christmas money to spend then just email hello@workplay-bags.com and you’ll be sent a 15% discount code to use on any Workplay bag up to the 19th January 2014.

We hope that brightens up your first day back at work a little.

Don’t forget that loads of our offers are still valid and that our workouts and healthy recipes are still there for you to use.

Happy New Year!

Ready to get moving again?

If you’re anything like us you’ve had a lovely couple of days with family and friends, eating, drinking and sitting around the house. We don’t know about you but our bodies are telling us that it’s time to get moving again.

So if you’re ready to get up off the sofa you’ll be pleased to know that our videos are all still live and available for you to use.

We recommend that you start with 23rd December - our Julia Buckley competition is still running. Simply do Julia’s short but effective HIIT workout, take a post workout selfie and send it to us. You’ll be in with a chance of winning a copy of Julia’s book The Fat Burn Revolution which launches in January.  The competition closes on Monday so you’ve got a couple of days still to get your entries in.

You can send your photos to zerocalorieadventcalendar@gmail.com or Tweet us @ZeroCalAdvent

You can also let Julia know what you thought of the workout by tweeting her @Julia_B

Come on - let’s go!

 

Merry Christmas!

The Zero Calorie Advent Calendar Team wish you a very Merry Christmas!

We hope you’ve enjoyed the calendar this year. It’s been a lot of fun and we’re very grateful for all your support.

Many of our offers are still valid during January so we’ll be back with a round up in a few days time to make sure you don’t miss out.

But for now it’s time to eat, drink and be merry.

Oh, and maybe go for a little walk. It’s all about the balance ;-)

Christmas Cycle at BOOM! Cycle

The venue for the last of our events for 2013 was the super cool BOOM! Cycle in Shoreditch.untitled

Last Thursday they hosted us and our lovely group of Zero Calorie Advent Calendar followers for Christmas cycle complete with festive tunes, Santa hats and reindeer antlers!

1525336_462515743852392_1459153366_nInstructor Daz lead our group through a 45 minute high energy class. A mixture of sprints, intervals and hills, the class was never dull and very sweaty!

After class we all gathered in the reception area for some post workout treats. Fizz, clematines, mince pies and delicious ice cream generously provided by Whey-Hey.

1525741_462516893852277_1183032484_nWe were delighted that Phil and Liz from Velo Vixen had joined us for the evening and had brought along some of their range of classy women’s cycling clothing and accessories. Our guests got the opportunity to see some of the range first hand. The Ana-Nichoola star jersey got a lot of attention!

At the end of the evening we sent our guests home into a wet and windy London evening with bags provided by Velo Vixen and filled with goodies from nuun, barenakedfoods and Natural Hero.

Another fantastic evening and our last of 2013. Velo2

 

A huge thank you to BOOM! Cycle and Velo Vixen and our goody bag sponsors. Make sure to check out the offers from BOOM! and Velo Vixen which are still running on the calendar at the moment

And finally a massive thanks to all of you who have come along to our events and made them such a success. We hope to see you in 2014 - maybe even before December!

Shaking it up at Powertone

Last week the ZCAC team headed down to the Powertone studios in Mayfair for the second of our events during December. The Powertone ladies ran a fantastic offer for us on the day with one free spot per Powerplate session throughout the day for calendar readers.

xH0cn7LSysOoKPRqo76_OECixDimOuNvh7_0ySMa83JqBR8_4VFRs_egqct403TUUQ=s2000 They were also kind enough to let us use the studio as a base for our festive run club. With office Christmas party season in full swing we were delighted to see a group of new faces come along to join us for the run lead by our very own PT Mollie.

Suitably adorned in festive antlers our group of runners headed out into a bustling Piccadilly and enjoyed a 3 mile run around Mayfair, along the side of Green Park and down the Mall before returning back to the Powertone studios for the now customary calendar fizz, mince pies and clematines!

BbT-c8yIMAM_2Z9Delle and Grace, the managers at Powertone were also doing their bit in support of our chosen charity A Mile in Her Shoes and were running a raffle to raise money - thanks so much for your support ladies.

Don’t forget to check out the Powertone offer on the calendar. They’re offering a massive discount on one month’s membership (normally priced at £159) for £99. To claim this fantastic offer please email mayfair@powertonestudios.com quoting Fat Free Xmas before midnight on 31st December 2013
