She Hits the Gym
Arabella said she was "excited" to hit the gym after the lockdowns. "Whether you create your own fitness training program or enlist the help of a personal trainer, your overall exercise plan should include several elements. Aim to incorporate aerobic fitness, strength training, core exercises, balance training, and flexibility and stretching into your exercise plan. It isn't necessary to fit each of these elements into every fitness session, but factoring them into your regular routine can help you promote fitness for life," says the Mayo Clinic.
She Does HIIT
You can work out with Chi virtually on Boux, and she does HIIT. "The concept behind HIIT is to do short bursts of very high-intensity activity interspersed with less-intense activity. A session of HIIT takes about 25 to 30 minutes, which includes a warm-up and a cool-down period. Do that three times a week to meet the recommended aerobic exercise goal," says the Cleveland Clinic.
She Values Consistency
As for resolutions: "People set way too big goals – once January hits we panic and set unrealistic goals for ourselves! Consistency should be a goal, because I feel like people set goals and then lose motivation and just give up. People should say 'I'm gonna have a consistent year, that's gonna be my goal," she told Boux Avenue.
Fitness is Meditation for Her
"Yes, fitness is a key form of meditation for me and I think everyone needs their own, especially in London which is such a fast-paced city. It's so important to find a sense of calmness and a time where you can just switch off and have you-time," she said.
She's Aging Gracefully
Chi turned 30 just last year and looks forward to more. "Thirty , Flirty & Thriving… I have mixed feelings going into my 30's and I hope the saying your 30's are the best years of your life is true… but looking back on my 20's I am so proud at what I have and over the past year." She added: "'I can honestly say despite being in a global pandemic growth wise it has been my best year yet and I am so lucky I have the people that I do surrounding & supporting me."
