If you’ve been scrolling through our Instagram lately (and why wouldn’t you be? jks!) then you’d know we’ve been running a #TeamBonds challenge to celebrate our recent Bonds Sport range. Over the past month, we’ve been posting a different challenge to our followers and plucking a finalist at the end of each week. All four finalists have been given the ultimate challenge to write a guest blog post for us to compete for a mega $1,000 Bonds gift card. Not bad, huh?
Meet one of our finalists, Tasha Fernandez, a self-described “Aussie chick,” who recently traded her heels for trainers to help women achieve their health and fitness goals. Because fitness can sometimes be a struggle for ALL of us, we asked Tasha to share her five top tips on how to make it more fun. Time to take note procrastinators!
BONDS SPORT ACTIVEWEAR
“Tried and tested baby! Looking great and feeling awesome while working out always helps. If you haven’t already seen the new activewear range by Bonds then what have you been doing?! It’s funky, stylish, affordable and most of all, comfortable. I’m in love with the bright happy colours and the various non-boring prints they have. They have my tick of approval!”
“Give yourself a break from the gym and head outside. Go for a bike ride, take your dog for a run (if you don’t have a dog, borrow one like I recently did). Go for a walk/jog by the river/beach. Do a class outdoors, such as boot camp or yoga. The options are limitless, ask Google and for some options near you.”
DON’T TAKE IT TOO SERIOUSLY
“If you start treating exercise like hard work that’s exactly what will happen. Find yourself a park and, this might sound silly, but start doing handstands! You’ll be surprised because it actually builds serious arm and core strength and will leave you sweating. Why not get even more adventurous and do cartwheels, somersaults and crabs?”

DANCE LIKE NO ONE IS WATCHING
“Crank up the tunes and move your hips. Did you know that dancing actually has a large number of health benefits? Dancing is a great full body and mind workout. It can make you feel good in a way that no other exercise can. It can help you lose weight, strengthen and tone your body, increase stamina and flexibility, improve balance and posture. So, what are you waiting for?”
“Go on, get yourself a mate! Instead of going for a coffee date catch-up, go for a walk together or go to a fitness class. This will not only keep you motivated, it will also help you to look forward to it and keep you accountable. You will also be able to encouraged and motivated each other. How good is that?”
