Skipping & Brunch with AK Fit Club


On Saturday 14th July, we headed over to The in Canada Water for a morning of skipping, HIIT exercises, shopping and brunching.

  • What: Skip, HIIT, Burn & Brunch
  • Where: The Lodge.Space, Canada Water
  • Who: Jilla Active x AK Fit Club

The workout was organised by the wonderful Kim and Andi of AK Fit Club, who use their classes to prove that skipping is “no longer just for the playground”. After an hour of attempting to master the art of skipping (a lot of co-ordination and concentration is involved!) we were so ready for a sit-down, a natter and some delicious brunch; The kitchen has so many incredible options so you really are spoilt for choice!

Read on to find out how we got on…


The Venue:

The describes themselves as a “home for health, mindfulness and wellbeing”, and it really is exactly that. Our class took place in one of their three light and airy studio spaces, which had amazing views of their beautiful garden as well as the nearby park. The garden is a stunning, zen space complete with gorgeous wooden furniture and day beds!

What we ate:

The kitchen at the offers a huge choice of brunch options, including lots of vegan-friendly and gluten-free options! We opted for the Egg Salutation – poached eggs on a bed of spinach with halloumi and hollandaise sauce – and the Powerhouse Pancakes – chia seed pancakes served with vegan chocolate sauce and coconut yoghurt.



Shopping (& Goody Bags!):

We took along our Spring/Summer collection and offered a 20% discount on the day. Our latest collection got a lot of love, and it was so nice seeing so many people enjoying Jilla!

To finish off the morning we dished out goody bags full of things from some fab brands including: Scentered, Pukka, Green People, Suzero & Rude Health!
