Struggling to keep up your new year fitness regime?

We were as well until we spoke to the super-motivational and rather gorgeous Olivia Cox! Blonde goddess, successful TV presenter and blogger (not to mention ex British army!) – we met up with Olivia recently and introduced her to the world of Strip. As well keeping up her golden glow with the help of our spray tan gurus, she also tried on a few pieces from our new athleisure range and we have to say we have never seen a Koral legging look better (*immediately gets out credit card to buy said leggings and attempt triceps).

 In between photo shoots, filming and working out we managed catch 5 minutes and find out what makes her tick!

1) Did you make any New Year’s resolutions?

I don’t really believe in resolutions because it’s just putting extra pressure on yourself. I started dry January and realised it’s much healthier to be more balanced rather than saying no entirely – I wanted a glass of wine so much more once I knew I couldn’t have one. I guess my main goal for this year is to be more positive and mindful of the present rather than constantly worrying about the past / future.

2) Tell us about your fitness routine…

I train twice a week with Kristy at Duo Chelsea, and outside of that I love running. I ran the London Marathon a few years ago, and this year I will do the Street Child Sierra Leone marathon.

3) What are your top tips to stay motivated?

Do something you love so it’s not so much of a chore. I’m really excited about learning to box – I genuinely look forward to the sessions, even though they’re pretty brutal!

4) Do you ever have ‘cheat’ days – if so what do you eat/do to relax?

Oh hell yes. My weekends are my own, and I try really hard not to be tempted to work during them. I’ve found that I crave routine, so I sometimes schedule in down time and force myself off my phone. I am gluten-free, and for a long time I thought carbs were the enemy because I didn’t understand it was the gluten affecting me. So my cheat food is over-loading gluten-free carbs. I get so much comfort from them.

5) What do you to wear to work out in?

I used to be in the army, so anything other that issued kit is the dream. I’m so excited that the athleisure trend has taken off – I love wearing kit that is functional and technically designed, but also looks cool. Brands such as We Are Handsome, Bjorn Borg, Koral, Varley, Pink Soda and Lululemon are my favourites.

6) Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

Never sleep naked – you might need to move in a hurry.


So there we go Strip guys and gals… if you haven’t embraced the trend for activewear yet we highly recommend that you do so! A well cut pair of leggings will see through you right through the day, from a yoga class to brunch with friends and even lounging in front of the tv! Visit your nearest Strip boutique to discover new brands such as We Handsome, Koral and Bjorn Borg – these niche brands are gaining a cult following and will help you inject a little personality into your lycra!

  • 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!

  • I could pay less than half the price at a local salon but always have my treatments done with you because you’re the best I’ve found. You always make it as comfortable as possible and I really, really appreciate your hygiene standards. The things I’ve seen at other salons make me cringe, but your therapists are meticulously clean. A touch of luxury helps make it a much more pleasant experience too! Thanks!

  • This was my first Hollywood Wax and I was nervous. The reception staff were extremely helpful with my questions beforehand. Holly my waxing technician, was extremely friendly, helpful and really put me at ease. It hurt a little, but nothing to how I thought it was going to and it was over very quickly. Definitely will be coming back! Thank you to the whole team for a fantastic service!

  • 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 .

  • 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!

  • Michaela is hands down the best wax therapist I have ever had. She literally is the best. I am never disappointed when my appointment is with her. She’s professional, quick and always does an immaculate job. I actually look forward to my appointments which is quite rare. I can’t recommend her enough!

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.
