Bjorn Borg models share their tips on how keep motivated!


With the Olympics and Paralympics now behind us and darker nights on the horizon, we’re in serious danger of losing our gymspiration! If like us, you need a bit of a kick in the butt, you’re in the right place. As well as catching up with the super fit models at Bjorn Borg to find out what keeps them going, we’ve put together our top tips on how to keep active and get yourself to the gym!

  1. Create a new habit with rewards: Something as simple as treating yourself to a coffee on the way home from the gym or catching up with a friend after a class can be enough to eventually train your brain to anticipate the reward and crave the lead up (ie going to the gym)
  2. Invest in some new gear: Looking good can do wonders for motivation…. you’ll be keen to show off your new clothes and since the gym is the best place for gym clothes, you have no excuses! Check out our new Bjorn Borg collection here >
  3. Buddy up: You’re bound to have a friend who’s keen to get fit as well so why not turn your Thursday night drinks into HIIT, Spin or Barre instead?
  4. Get a new playlist: Put aside an hour on a Sunday afternoon to pull together all your favourite new tracks – whether on Itunes or Spotify there are so many ways to make a playlist and find new music to boost your mind and mood
  5. Set goals – want to be in that bodycon dress by Christmas? Or be able to get through a full hour of Bikram yoga? Break it down into weekly goals and you will be able to track how far you’ve come

How do the professionals keep their resolve?

Meet Jarrod Scott, Model and Triathlon athlete:


Being able to eat anything I want. I usually have like fries five nights a week, if anyone wants to know. But also you feel great, it’s mentally satisfying. Sometimes if I’m feeling unmotivated, I work out with my friends. We push each other and usually I have to keep up with them because they’re really fit. Other than that I like to train alone. I just go off and do my thing, find new places.


I just like to see how far my body can go. Some days I’ll ride my bike, I’ll ride a 150 kilometers and I’ll try to do it on an empty stomach. Just to see, I don’t know, just to test myself. It gives me something to work towards. I have a lot of spare time. I usually just eat, and if I eat and don’t exercise, it’s usually not good in this industry.


There’s a big misconception about people that have a good body, and people that are fit and functional. Every athlete works towards a different goal. There’s this huge stigma about having a perfect body, like a professional athlete or a wrestler. But if you look at a sumo wrestler for instance, they’re absolutely amazing, this huge force to be reckoned with. But their bodies aren’t considered to be the best even though it is the best for them. When I do triathlons, you judge a person within the first three seconds of seeing them and think ”oh look at this guy, he’s nothing”. Then he passes you in the first five minutes and you never see him again.


Meet Betty Adewole, model and short distance sprinter:


I like yoga, but I think running’s my favourite. It makes me feel awake, alive. I’m automatically happier after I finish running. I just feel more energized, more positive. I feel it in my whole body, so I know that I’ve worked out whereas sometimes if I do some other things I won’t feel it in my whole body. And I sweat more as well, it’s like I can see and feel the results of the effort I put in.


My mood and my energy. How I feel afterwards.  If I wake up and I’m in a bad mood and I go for a run, I just I feel better, stronger and more energized afterwards.


Yeah, really important. The underwear, the tops I’m wearing, Trainers are really important for comfort.  I’ll wear leggings if it’s cold, and maybe a fleece or a hoodie.

  • I have been looking for a hair removal salon since leaving NYC. A lot of beauty salons use mediocre wax, however at Strip they use the proper black wax which is the best and most comfortable way to remove hair it is also super quick. Staff could not have been more friendly helpful and professional. I will definitely be returning to Strip!

  • Hands down the best wax I have ever had. This was my first time going to Strip and there was no pain whatsoever and it was over so quickly! I have very sensitive skin and am always in pain whenever I get a wax however, I had none of these issues here! Will 100% be back.

  • This place is awesome. Every time I’ve come they have offered top notch service. They make me super comfortable, they are beyond friendly, and the wax is done to perfection. All of the Strip locations are great but I think the City location is the best for customer service and friendliness. Highly recommend everyone go here for!!

  • As it was my first waxing I was quite nervous. There was no need to be. The staff were friendly and professional. Eva put me at ease by explaining everything. She did an amazing treatment, virtually pain free. Will definitely be back. Thank you Eva and all the staff .

  • My fourth wax at Strip and as always a positive experience! All the ladies are so lovely, professional and knowledgeable, doing whatever they can to ensure you get the best results and have the best experience – I could not recommend Strip enough! Can’t wait to go back again!

  • I have been going to Strip Wax for years, and it never disappoints. They always do an excellent job, and make the experience as pain free as waxing allows. Staff are always really helpful, the rooms are gorgeous and they use great products. Would highly recommend.

  • Absolutely amazing wax with Martina today. The whole experience from Terri on reception to the treatment was fantastic and I cannot recommend this salon enough. Having recently undergone extensive surgery for Crohn’s disease, I was nervous for my first wax in a few years and Martina was just amazing she listened to me and made me feel totally relaxed and in safe hands. The wax they use is fantastic and you barely feel a thing. Can’t wait to come back!

  • Just had my very first Brazilian wax and was pretty nervous, but Isobel put me at ease straight away. I felt really cared for and it wasn’t embarrassing at all; and not anywhere near as painful as I’d feared.

    I’ve signed up for their special offer of 5 for the price of 4. Isobel has completely changed the way I think about waxing. Thank you!

  • Best waxing experience I’ve ever had! Martina was wonderful and the products they use are amazing and make a really comfortable experience. I’m a customer for life.
