SO, WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU COMBINE GYMSHARK, A BUNCH OF MODELS AND A WEEK'S PREPARATION FOR LONDON FASHION WEEK?

Six Sessions | Six Challenges | 45 Minutes
It's a HIIT class, but not as you know it... composed of bodyweight exercises, such as boxing techniques and duo core work, the entire programme was introduced to help build endurance and gradually increase heart rate whilst also loosening the models' joints to help prevent injury.
With such hardcore sessions in play, Get Fired Up ensured that the models were given dedicated time to wind down by offering yoga, meditation and sound healing with yogi2me.
The extra sessions helped to improve flexibility, build muscle strength and perfect posture - all of which, as you can imagine, are valuable assets for fashion models, especially during Fashion Week.
