Last week I was whisked away by Hiitmat https://www.instagram.com/hiitmat/ to Cannes in the south of France to shoot their marketing campaign for the release of their exciting new product, due to come out at the start of April.

The 2-hour 20-minute flight from Leeds Bradford was such a quick escape from the – 2-degree snow in Leeds and embrace the 17-degree sun and blue sea.

What and who are HIITMAT?

As a new ambassador for HIITMAT, the team kindly invited me to an all expenses paid trip to Cannes, where we stayed in a private villa in Antibes and shot the promotional launch video. (Cannot wait for you guys to see the commercial Its so amazing!)

I must have done around 70 burpees by the end of the filming day, reshooting my bits but it was so worth it in the end when I saw the final shots.

I’m so thankful to Hiitmatt for the opportunity to work with them and for this amazing trip. So excited for our next trip and love being a part of the HIITMAT family! Memories for life!

HIITMAT is due to kickoff 3rd April on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. HIITMAT are releasing a revolutionary fitness mat, specific to HIIT training and unlike anything else on the market. The mat communicates with the HIITMAT app which will be available to download for free on any smartphone or tablet.

Pressure sensors and zonal lighting are two key features that are built into the mat and communicate with the app via Bluetooth to guide, monitor and track your workout and performance.

The app gives you the capability to build your own workout, tailoring every aspect from interval and rest time, to each exercise and the order of your workout. You can also select from a constantly updated database of workouts designed for users of all fitness levels.

That mat even folds up and comes with a custom designed sleeve, making it easily portable and storable, perfect for people on the go and people who like to workout at home, in hotels or outdoors.

More details on the product will be released between now and HIITMAT’s launch in just under 2 weeks, so follow them on Instagram @hiitmat to keep updated on the product and their launch!

A limited number of early bird prices and offers will be available.

They have some amazing plans and products in the pipeline and will be offering a very limited number of exclusive ambassador contracts over the coming months, so if you’re interested in joining and representing them at international events such as the one in Cannes, follow them and DM them with your interest!

Five Seas Hotel

100% when I go back to Cannes I will stay here, we went for cocktails on the ‘le roof’ bar on Sunday night and I fell in love with the pool terrace and aesthetics of the hotel, so stunning and in a great location. Really reminded me of the Ned in London.
