A Healthy Girl's Guide to Perth by Amanda Bisk.
Posted on 17 March 2014
As we focus this month of what's fit about cities all around the world we chat to gorgeous gymnast Amanda Bisk about the best fit spots in her home town Perth.
What's the best place to go for a killer outdoor workout?
I love working out at the University of WA's sporting grounds in Mt Claremont. There is a beautiful grass athletics track and plenty of fields to run on (I love running bare feet here!) and it is also a great place to do hill sprints with grass hills surrounding the grounds.
What's your all time favourite cafe for a healthy meal?
My absolute favourite cafe is Yelo in Trigg. They have delicious coffee and awesome healthy foods and smoothies to choose from. It is very laid back with people popping in straight from the beach in their bathers or in their workout clothes after their coastal walk or run. I love the vibe and it's beach shack character! :)
What's the best gym to go to in Perth?
I dont usually visit the gym because I am a big fan of an outdoor workout so my fave place to do a bit of strength training is on the grassed area just north of Scarborough beach. There are chin up bars and all sorts of equipment to workout on.
Subiaco Farmers Market is AMAZING!! So many wonderful goodies to eat for breakfast that is made right in front of you. It's the perfect start to your wander around the market. There is an array of fresh fruit and veg, freshly baked bread and gourmet yummies like dried fruit, jams, cheeses and fudge.
There are always a few little surprise stores around if you don't mind going for a bit of a hunt around the suburbs of Perth. Leederville has a few gems along with Subiaco and Claremont. My friends here in Perth have also started an online clothing store called Closet Monster. They have a great selection of aussie labels so I love checking out their site to see whats new!
Love going for a skate along the coast with my friends. There is a great stretch along Trigg to Hillary's with perfect little lookouts to stop, relax and watch the sun set over the water.
To tell you the truth I haven't visited one!! I think I really need to plan a visit! ;)
Stables in the City is great on a Friday with an awesome city vibe and yummy cocktails. My absolute favourite is the Beach Club in Cottesloe. It has a beautiful outdoor garden covered in lights, the perfect location for a balmy summer sunday afternoon.
Fit ball tucks and fit ball pikes. A great challenge for core stability, balance and even a little arm and shoulder strength!
