Dreams do come true ☺️ Last night we hosted a @thegirlgains event in Sydney, Australia. We were totally overwhelmed by how many incredible women came along. It felt so surreal, but amazing, to go to the other side of the world and be able to find a community of positive like minded women. Our ultimate goal with #girlgains is to help women all over the globe connect with other #girlgainers , and to never feel like they are alone. And last night it really felt like we were achieving that πŸŽ‰ Our ambassador @steph182x has been hosting events in Sydney for over 6 months, and nailing it, and it felt amazing to finally go along to one ourselves and get to meet the Australian #girlgains community. Steph, we can't express how grateful we are for having you as part of our #girlgains squad ❀️ A huge thank you to @fitnessculture.com.au for hosting us last night, to all the delicious snack brands who came along, and also to YOU girls who are allowing us to spread the @thegirlgains message of positivity, balance and self love. We are so grateful πŸ’• #girlgains #girlgainers #strongzvd #strongsquad #seeaustralia

Lunch at @speedoscafe 😍 I've finally made it to Sydney after one hell of a journey (full debrief on my personal @zanzapan account) πŸ˜… We dropped our bags at @qtbondi and then headed straight for lunch with our girls @steph182x @em_wizzfit πŸ‘― I had the yogi plate and shared the vegan pancakes with @tallyrye πŸ™ŒπŸΌ I've also had a bazillion coffees to try and turn me into a fully functioning human! πŸ˜‚ Now it's time for our @thegirlgains Sydney event! Follow along on my Snapchat: zanzapan πŸ’• #girlgains #strongsquad #strongzvd #bondibeach #seeaustralia

Can you tell I'm excited!? πŸ˜‚Travelling business class with @emirates is THE DREAM! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ I've never done it before so I feel like the luckiest lady to have secured an upgrade! ☺️ All the space, the flatbed, and the amazing silver service food, will mean Tally and I can rest up in comfort and feel refreshed when we land in Australia! ✈️ I should probably play it cool. Try to blend in with all the ballers. But nope, I am freaking out over here πŸ˜‚ Follow me on Snapchat to see my uncoolness: @zanzapan πŸŒπŸ’• #emirates #seeaustralia #travelblogger #overexcited #painfullyuncool

Australia, I'm coming for you! ✈️🌏 I'm about to embark on a two week road trip from Sydney up to Hamilton Island - stopping off at Byron Bay, The Gold Coast and Brisbane! And the best part? I'm doing it with my bestie @tallyrye πŸ‘― I can't wait to meet tonnes of you at the @girlgainsaus event on Tuesday (Sydney girls grab a ticket if you haven't yet!) and hopefully bump into more of you on our adventures ☺️ I'll be documenting my trip across my social media, especially YouTube, Snapchat (@zanzapan) and my instagram stories; so follow along! πŸ’• #seeaustralia @australia

Pre-workout Flow ✌🏼 Yesterday @thestrengthtemple took me through this movement series to help open up my hips and shoulders for our workout. These are my two tightest areas and are highly likely to be tight for you too! Here are some key points Richie noted: ➑️ In the squat position, push your legs wide to really open through the hips ➑️ Use your breath throughout the sequence - nice deep inhalations and exhalations ➑️ Be conscious in each stage of the movement, trying to open up your body a little more with each repetition πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ Try repeating this anywhere from 5-10 times before a workout. By increasing blood flow to the muscles and joints you will be using you will not only reduce the risk of injury but also help to support optimal performance! πŸ’ͺ🏼 I will also be utilising this little combo on my layover today between flights to Australia - to loosen up my joints after sitting down for so long! ✈️🌎 Wearing @adidasuk πŸ’• #girlgains #strongsquad #zvdworkout #zannavandijk #strongzvd #mobilityflow #thestrengthtemple

My life πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Is it acceptable to have two brunches in one day? I sure hope so πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ This was my second plate of goodness, this time from @storycoffeeldn 😍 I had scrambled egg with creme fraiche and "massaged kale" ... why does kale get to be massaged and I don't !? πŸ˜‚ Anyways you can see what else I am getting up to on my Snapchat: @zanzapan πŸ’• #girlgains #strongsquad #zannavandijk #strongzvd

Failure... it IS an option 😝 Sure I post videos of me smashing out pull ups and deadlifts, but there are a lot of failed attempts which never make it to the internet! Today I was practicing ring pull-ups with @thestrengthtemple and by the third set my arms were destroyed! As you can see right here I couldn't even complete a single rep πŸ˜‚ And you know what, that's a good thing! It means I am pushing my body out of its comfort zone. I'm challenging it and taking it to its limits. And that's were progress is made. Don't be afraid of failure, embrace it! (And have fun with it πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸΌ) #girlgains #strongsquad #zannavandijk #zvdworkout #strongzvd Wearing @adidaswomen πŸ’•

Wait for that dismount πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ŒπŸΌTodays gymnastics lesson πŸ‘― Guys, working out doesn't have to be horrible. You can enjoy it, I promise! ☺️ Today I took my bestie @wanderrover to a gymnastics lesson with the wizard @mikeleept and we worked on handstands. It was so much fun and didn't feel like a workout, despite us seriously challenging our bodies πŸ’ͺ🏼 Sure it's great to sweat through a HIIT class or lift some heavy weights, I do that too! But don't be afraid to try something different πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Wearing @adidasuk πŸ’• #strongzvd #strongsquad #girlgains #zannavandijk #zvdworkout

Lunching with @melaniiemurphy πŸ‘― We headed to @thedetoxkitchen for a good old natter and tucked into these bowls of goodness πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ I had beetroot falafel with a pad Thai and a cauliflower salad 😍 We also filmed some videos together in the @thedetoxkitchen studio all about our approach to food, fitness and just LIFE πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸΌ They will be live on our YouTube channels super soon! πŸ’• #girlgains #strongsquad #strongzvd #zannavandijk #thedetoxkitchen #healthylunch #londoncafe

STORY TIME! And no I'm not wearing Lycra - but that's not the shocking news! πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚ Last night my boyfriend surprised me with tickets to see Derren Brown. I'm a huge fan and I've seen him a few times, always hoping that one day I would be randomly selected from the crowd for one of his acts. Well, last night I was!!! He ended up bringing me on stage and READING MY BLOODY MIND. He literally extracted my PIN code just by looking into my eyes. It blew my mind. I am such a cynical person with things like that, but I honestly haven't got a clue how he did it! And the whole show to be honest just was a big old mindfuck πŸ˜‚ Every time I watch him he just absolutely stuns me! What a talented man πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Anyways, so pretty much my life is complete because now I've had both Dynamo and Derren Brown perform tricks on me. Life. Goals. 😝 If you ever get a chance to see him live, DO IT!!!! πŸŽ‰ And yes, I've changed my PIN code before you ask πŸ˜‚πŸ’• #girlgains #zannavandijk #strongsquad #strongzvd #ootd #wiwt #storytime #derrenbrown

Some Thursday morning foodporn from @daisygreencollection 😍 Hopefully this deliciousness brightens your day a little. To anyone else in London today, stay positive and stay safe πŸ’• #girlgains #zannavandijk #strongsquad #strongzvd
