East v West - Protein Haus v Lomax Double Trouble Event!



What they say:

The founders of Protein Haus and Lomax go head to head for a Cycle Haus X Lomax Blast double bill!

Join Carli Wheatley of Protein Haus and Jonny Lomax of Lomax for the ultimate East vs West Sunday showdown with a 90 minute fully body blitz including a 45 minute Cycle Haus class and a 45 minute Lomax Blast class. There will also be 4 bikes available for back-to-back Cycle Haus for cardio bunnies.

East vs West Lomax and Protein Haus


What I say:

OMG! Now, I'm used to a double whammy class (it's practically my forte) but I am NOT used to a double whammy class held by legendery Carli, owner of my favorite go-to lunch spot Protein Haus, and the equally legendery Jonathan Lomax, owner of luxury Chelsea gym Lomax, where the likes of Zanna Van Dijk works and Clean Eating Alice trains. Let's just say, these guys have made their name on the London Fitness scene for a reason, and I was about to discover it big time!!! 

Ride This Way....


What we did:


With Beth and I deciding to book onto Group B - when we arrived it was revealed that meant we would be doing the Spin class first, then the Blast. I don't know if I was relieved or not - what's the lesser of two evils?!

Getting ready to spin our ass off!


The Spin class was taken by Carli Wheatley, who is not only the owner of Protein Haus, but a dedicated spin instructor too, who takes any opportunity she can to pick up a class here and there. As we entered the studio and set up our bikes, she revealed we would be doing a 'Ride to the Beat' session - and, turns out, that beat was fast! With sprint, hill and out of the saddle tracks, combined bike press ups in various positions to work the whole upper body (yes, still whilst spinning!), she certainly earned her stripes!! 

Round 1 - DONE!

                                             
                                                               Little Insta Story in between sessions!



But we weren't done there - with a Blast Class still to go, we were only half way through! So upstairs we went, legs burning, into the Personal Training Studio where we took our place in our Pods.

Round 2!


Working with a partner, with one beginning in the pod, the other by the bench, Jonathan took us through a series of supersets, working on a muscle building formula to 'compliment' the intense cardio we'd just performed. With three different routines, each consisting of four exercises, including the likes of weight barbell squats in the Pod, to jump squats onto the bench, to tricep dips and planks, all repeated for the three rounds, the name doesn't lie - we really were blasted!!!

Post workout fuel

Exhausted but buzzing, things were about to get even better, as Carli brought out our post workout protein shakes - OREO FLAVOUR (given the double whammy theme and all!)!! I have to say, never have I been more in need of a little post workout pep me up, and this couldn't have done the job any better!! With 20g of protein and only 3g of fat, this was a filling, healthy yet deliciously sweet treat that could not have been better called for. YUM!!!   


Cause every post workout meal should involve Oreos!

FYI - if you haven't yet visited Protein Haus I would HIGHLY recommend it. With a range of smoothies, salads and sweet treats all displaying a very appealing macro content, it's most definitely my favourite go to takeaway food spot in London. My favourite = the protein carrot cake.  With 15g of protein yet only 4g of carbs and 1g of fat, you're basically eating a chicken breast :P That's my kinda desert!!

My Protein Haus lunch,
You can check out their shops at Moorgate Station, Westfield shopping centre and Canary Wharf. But please, Carli, when you can open one central?! 


Overall

All in all, Beth and I had a great time and cannot thank Carli and Jonathan enough giving up their Sunday afternoons to put on such a great event! Too early to ask when the next one is?! :P xxxx 


Super sweaty, but still smiling!

  2. If you work HARD for your money (and I know you do) you don’t like to see it wasted, right?

    There’s no shortage of ways to waste your money that I am sure you are already aware of but the ONE area most people don’t realize they are wasting their money is in the food they eat.

    That’s right.

    Are you 100% certain that your body is making the most of all the food and more importantly protein you consume each day?

    Wouldn’t you want to have confirmation on this?

    There are many indicators that your body will use to tell you if the foods you are eating is being wasted or not.

    You can read up more on this topic on the following page:

    ? Make sure you are ABSORBING the foods you eat, ok?

    Protein isn’t cheap whether it’s coming from food or shakes.

    But, did you know that every day you don’t consume a very specific type of enzyme, you are actually wasting money on the protein you’re buying from food and shakes?

    No protein means no growth PERIOD

    ? How to ABSORB all your protein and stop wasting money

    Even if you are doing everything right…

    Eating clean? CHECK!

    Eating organic? CHECK!

    5-6 meals a day? DOUBLE CHECK!

    Protein shakes, vitamins and supplement minerals? CHECK MATE!

    But one of the harsh realities I’ve learned from peak performance expert Wade Lightheart is this:

    Most of the protein individuals consume ends up in one of two places.

    One is your toilet bowl.

    And the second place is in a nice layer of sludge somewhere in your digestive tract.

    So in theory, it’s a nice idea to think that if you are following the “Golden Rules” that have been laid out for you, you are on the right track.

    BUT if you can’t properly utilize those foods, all that effort adds up to one GIANT-SIZED WASTE OF MONEY AND EFFORT.

    So what’s happening and why isn’t this being talked about so much?

    The industry is SLOWLY starting to realize this harsh truth but they are still WAY behind and struggling to catch up.

    Fact is, our bodies require ENZYMES to perform at their best.

    Enzymes are responsible for everything from “thinking to blinking” which also includes energy production, cell repair and recovery and even immune boosting advantages.

    The BAD NEWS is that our bodies only have a limited enzyme-producing capacity which naturally declines as we age (your enzyme potential can drop to only 30% by the time you reach the age of 40).

    And yes, our bodies CAN produce enzymes and yes there are enzymes in the foods you eat BUT they still don’t add up to the required amount you actually need.

    This is due to many contributing factors including HOW our foods are grown or produced these days, HOW they are transported and HOW we prepare those foods.

    And research demonstrates that ANY FOOD HEATED ABOVE 114 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT LOSES ALL OF ITS ENZYMES.

    In other words, all cooked food is deficient in digestive enzymes, leaving very little to break down your food.

    ? Yes I’d like to know more about restoring enzyme production

    PS. Before rushing out the door to go and get digestive enzymes from your local stores, remember this…
