Hello and Happy New Year! I hope you’ve all enjoyed the holidays and are starting the New Year feeling refreshed and invigorated. For Tea & Tattle’s first episode of 2017, I’m interviewing the lovely Victoria Marr and Flik Swan, best friends and founders of the ballet-inspired fitness programme Sleek Technique. If you’re seeking some fitness inspiration to meet your health goals for 2017 (or are fascinated by the world of ballet), then this is the perfect episode for you. And fear not: even if you’ve never done a single plié, Sleek Technique is still highly accessible, and you’ll be getting those ballerina legs in no time!
I first discovered Sleek Technique one January a few years ago, at a time when I desperately needed a fitness routine that I could do from home and that was as enjoyable as it was challenging. I was gritting my teeth getting through a job I didn’t particularly enjoy at the time, and I knew that instead of coming home and feeling miserable most evenings, I had to find something fun to do instead. I started taking 1-2 Sleek Technique Live Classes a night, and it was one of the best choices I’ve ever made. My mood transformed, and it was wonderful to feel strong and graceful again.
As you’ll notice in this episode, both Victoria and Flik have such friendly, bubbly personalities that it’s hard not to smile all through their classes (hard work though they may be!). I loved hearing about how they switched careers from professional dancers to fitness entrepreneurs in this interview, as well as their tips for keeping on track with your exercise routine and their advice on creating a successful business with your best friend.
I’ve also signed up to join in the new Sleek Technique Full Ballerina Body Nutrition Programme, which starts January 10th (we discuss it a little in the episode). I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes, and do drop me a line if you’re keen to try it as well, as it would be fun to know if anyone else is doing it too!
Here’s to a happy and healthy 2017! I so enjoyed this Sleek Technique interview and hope you do too! I’ll be back with regular Miranda’s Notebook blog posts on Monday; in the meantime – happy listening!
