Dublin Autumn Day in association with DISC’ONVENTION tour

And we are back with the new fitness season and as such with new and exciting events also. One in particular I would like to talk about is our annual Dublin Autumn Day and this year with a different angle in association with DISC’ONVENTION by one of my fellow colleague, an international fitness presenter – Gil Lopes. 

You are probably wondering what exactly is DISC’ONVENTION? Well Gil has been organising his fantastic events for more than 10 years now in the city where this Brazilian born fitness guru has settled – in a good ancient Rome. For number of years he has put a theme to it though and in 2016 it will be DISCO themed (hence to that unusual name).

Take a look at one my earlier blog posts to read about the history of Gil Lopes Conventions.


And as it has formed over some period of time, Gil will be touring Europe to promote this one of a kind event, which will be held in the end of February 2016 and this year we are the lucky ones to be able to kick off his sensational tour in Dublin.

So without further ado I would like to invite you all to our Saturday afternoon event on the 17th of October in The Liffey Trust Centre. 

Registration via email or FB please.

We can’t wait to see you all again!

Love Erle & Gil

Glam vs Cheerleaders

I am extremely happy to be blogging about our next dance and fitness event, which will be held in Liffey Trust Centre on the 21st of March and this time with me and Nike Master Trainer Sandra Raju from Estonia.


We’ve decided to make our event slightly different this time and on top our good old Reggaeton adding a serious workout from Nike called Nike Training Club as well as combining the one and only Glam – with Cheerleaders Dance. You are probably wondering, what the hell is this? Well stop wondering and book your place to find out! A beautiful opportunity to spend the Saturday afternoon full of dance and fitness and get motivated and inspired with me and Sandra!

For those, who haven’t yet had an opportunity to take Reggaeton classes with me, take a look at the video below to see what it’s all about and look no further than joining our event on the 21st of March.

Now… Meet the next rising fitness star and Nike Master Trainer Sandra Raju from Estonia.

Silver Raidla

With over 8 years of professional coaching experience in dance and fitness areas, Sandra’s work varies from coaching, motivating and inspiring people from all levels of fitness and different sporting backgrounds. She has been co-coaching and managing the best cheerleading team​ (TTÜ Tantsutüdrukud/TUT Cheerleaders)​ in Estonia and Baltics for 7 years and as she likes to call it – her hobby is her work is her hobby. Her training style is Functional Training because she believes that challenging the whole body will get results the fastest, and help develop everyday strength to live a healthy life. Her main goal as a trainer is to provide safe and effective classes/programs that are challenging enough to make you a standout in your everyday life, sport or training, and enjoyable enough to keep you coming back for more. Sandra is a Nike Master Trainer for Baltic countries and will be spreading the word about NTC wherever and whenever she can. ”There are seven days in a week and ‘someday’ isn’t one of them. If you love what you do and do what you believe in, then the rest will just come together naturally. Just​ get up and​ start​ doing​!”

So you are wondering what exactly is NTC? Here is a short description to put your mind at ease. Nike Training Club is a full body training created for women by world-class trainers and specially designed for You to Make Yourself whatever you want to be. NTC gives you the opportunity to train like a Pro with workouts created by and for the biggest sports stars today like Serena Williams, Gabby Douglas, Maria Sharapova, Marie Purvis, Alex Morgan, Paula Radcliffe and so on. It focuses strongly on functional training and how human body is supposed ​move and work naturally​. In NTC class, y​our trainer will be your best friend and your biggest enemy – both at the same time but trust us – you’ll ask for more!​

Here is a video from Sandra’s NTC class on Võru Aeroobika Õhtu in December just gone demonstrating extremely well what lies ahead of you.

And to sum up this Saturday afternoon me and Sandra will be surprising you with a different type of dance class. Want to find out what it is? Join our event to see what we have planned for you!

Love Erle & Sandra

Why Functional Training?

The activities we perform in our daily life are never as straightforward as simple biceps curls with dumbbells or seated row on one of the gym machines. Therefore functional fitness is focusing training the body the way that you actually improve your daily life whether you are running after the kids, picking up your shopping bag or lifting heavy boxes in the household. In functional training class exercises are similar to real life activities and are designed to allow you to perform your day to day activities more easily and without injuries. Every exercise involves more than just one muscle group so that you work with your body as one full unit. Never we work with just one muscle at the time therefore this form of exercise is really beneficial in terms of getting to know your body and keeping it healthy! 

There are numerous amounts of benefits to this type of training and to name a few I have made a little list below:

  1. Perform everyday activities better
  2. Improved power and strength levels
  3. Stronger core
  4. Better balance and flexibility
  5. Improved overall fitness level
  6. Lower stress level
  7. Lower the risk of many health issues
  8. Boost metabolism
  9. Improved posture
  10. Good night sleep


Training session will involve exercises with our own body weight as well as with equipment. There will be balance between the two so that you can recover from more challenging ones before the next set of exercises. Some of the equipment we will be using include resistance bands, mini bands, Bender balls, Gliding discs and skipping rope.

So now is the time to get your workout gear organised and hit my classes. Join me & exercise your cares away!

Love E
