This week in RunPod, Jenni has to watch her Ps and Qs as she is joined by a Baroness. Michelle Mone is best known for founding Ultimo, a lingerie company that launched the Ultimo bra and in the process she developed a reputation as one of the UK's most successful women in business.
However working relentlessly on her company took its toll and Michelle certainly felt that she neglected her health. Consequently when she sold Ultimo several years ago, she also took the opportunity to treat her body as a new business and started focusing on a healthier lifestyle which resulted in her going from a size 22 to a size 10!
Michelle lost over 8 stone by assessing many factors and making changes which had a positive impact on her lifestyle, her body, her attitude to fitness and her happiness. She also started running. By taking up the latter, she recognises how her approach to fitness has changed everything for her - and has given her a more positive outlook on life which in turn has boosted her self-confidence.
Michelle credits running as one of the key reasons to her being stress-free, happy and healthy in body and mind.
Michelle talks about couples workouts, how you can fit running in when you are running an international business and the importance of prioritising fitness. If you are struggling to find the motivation - well Michelle might just give you the boost you need...happy running!
