My Reasons to Visit E20: By Alice Sims - Strength & Conditioning COACH and Nutrition Expert

Well, obviously the top one is to visit US! Our brilliant network of practitioners include physiotherapists, osteopaths, acupuncturists, massage therapists, strength and conditioning and running coaches, all working out of our spacious new clinic.  

I'll be teaching Pelvic Floor Galore on Mondays at 13.45 as well as my Flex & Flow strength, conditioning and yoga class at 18.30 on the same day. Come get some :)

Yoga Fix East Village

I love that E20 is full of independent restaurants bars and cafes so you get something totally different to your regular high-street chains.

Fix East Village is located on the edge of the 2012 Olympic Park and there are so many great open spaces for walking, running, cycling...or just relaxing!   I highly recommend going for a swim in the Aquatics Centre if only to spot Tom Daley practicing his diving (he's usually there early weekday afternoons!) Plus there's plenty of people to train with, from Bootcamps to Our Parks sessions.  I'm also really looking forward to all the events in the Active August programme - last years programme was awesome!

 

If you want a more creative (and leisurely) activity then why not walk The Line which is London's first dedicated modern and contemporary art walk. Wowzer!

Alex Chinnock's "Bullet From A Shooting Star"

Alex Chinnock's "Bullet From A Shooting Star"

The route runs between the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and The O2, following the waterways and the line of the Meridian. You'll view these crazy outdoor sculptures from internationally renown greats such as Anthony Gormley, Damien Hirst, Gary Hume and my absolute favourite piece on the walk is Alex Chinnock's "Bullet From A Shooting Star". This amazing outdoor art-trail is completely FREE of charge. 

 

 

 

And, not least, enjoy incredible, tasty goodies from a superbly curated bunch of independent cafes, bars and restaurants. We're spoilt for choice!

Try the freshly made juices, wraps and salads from Ginger & Mint, cakes from Signorelli   and cocktails and tuuuunes at Red Yellow Blue from the people behind fave Hackney bar Jaguar Shoes. 

All in all its a great spot to work, and to hang out.  Looking forward to spending my time between there and Fix London Fields !
