Benefits of working out with your BFFF

Working out alone is not a problem for any Fit Girl, but it is always more fun when you can work out with your BFFF. Studies have proven that people who have a workout buddy have higher probabilities of reaching their ultimate fitness goals. Plus what is more cool than working out with your BFFF while wearing matching awesome outfits right?! Well we have a surprise…you and your BFFF can now score 2 Jogha sportsbras and  shirts for the price of 1!

Benefits of working out with your BFFF

1) You won’t skip a workout anymore:

You are less likely to skip the gym when you are feeling lazy if cancelling means inconveniencing your friend.

2) You’ll get your extra dose of motivation:

Not only will your workout buddy keep you from skipping the gym, she can also provide you with motivation when it gets though. For example if you feel like you can’t do another set or you’re simply not in the mood. She’ll motivate you to keep going forward.

3) You’ll learn more exercises

As dedicated you may be, I’m sure you don’t know all there is to know about which exercises you could do. You and your buddy can teach each other new circuits and exercises and you could check each other’s form.

4) You’ll be able to do two-person exercises

Finally you’ll be able to do one of the many partner exercises you see on those cool YouTube videos. Think crunches with a medicine ball pass or a partner push up with a shoulder tap. The possibilities will be endless. Plus, exercises you can do with 2 are  super challenging and will put all your muscles to work.

5) You’ll get into a healthy competition

Sometimes it could be the case that your workout buddy is a tiny bit fitter than you are. Studies have shown that people who perceive their buddies as stronger or “better” increase their intensity and workout time by 200% !!! Now, friendly competition, bring it on!

6) You’ll avoid getting an injury

You and your buddy can count each other’s repetitions, sets and check each other’s forms to make sure you are getting the most out your workout. And if needed to make sure you make some adjustments before they become an injury in the long term

7) You’ll have more fun!

Being with friends is always fun and the same counts for working out with a friend or a buddy.

8) You’ll get better results

If you’ve read above you’ll realize that the benefits of having a workout buddy are countless. This means that you’ll be able to reach your goals faster. Add all together, the accountability, healthy competition and results and you’ll keep your motivation up!

Digital detox retreat in Ibiza

Detox is a word we Fit Girls never to want to hear when it comes to food and diet. However, when it’s a detox of the digital kind we are all ears. We use our mobile phones for work, convenience and for fun but some of us treat our phones as we would a baby; that simply can’t be left unattended! If this sounds like you, we are here to tell you how you can be in with a chance to experience a first of its kind retreat to digitally detox in a luxury Ibiza villa.

So what do you people do with their kids when they need a break to get other important things in their life done? They put them into day care. So why don’t we have the same thing to detach ourselves from our mobile phones? Gin Mare is the company behind the genius concept of a digital day care, to offer the most digitally connected people amongst the online generation the chance (and excuse) to take some respite from living in digital overdrive.

A recent survey conducted by Times Magazine and technology company Qualcomm, shows that people’s phones are almost an extension of their body with 68% of users taking it with them to bed and even to the toilet. Maybe that’s no big deal seen as your phone has a Kindle app, so to you it’s just like reading a book. But, the latest Technology Trends Annual Report, released by Kleiner Perkins Caufield, revealed that on average, people check their phones 150 times a day! The amount of time we devote to our mobile phones nowadays means it really isn’t such a stretch to compare our device to a baby.When they ring, we answer them immediately; when they are quiet, we get worried and check it’s working. They consume us throughout the day, bringing us amusement and frustrate us by keeping us up at night.

In attempts to challenge the digitally addicted generation and bring us back to what really matters, Gin Mare have evoked their laid-back image and applied it to a tech rehab centre. Located at the luxurious Villa Mare in Ibiza, the retreat offers yoga, dance and meditation so that you can indulge in reconnecting with the beauty and pleasures of life offline; all while having your toes in the warm mediterranean sand. Organized by a brand that has developed an artisanal gin around four plants that best characterise the Mediterranean: basil, thyme, rosemary and Arbequina olives; of course cocktails and a Mediterranean menu will be part of this digital free experience.

Vila Mare 01

To win a spot in the Daycare in Ibiza and undergo the detox, people in Europe can enrol themselves through the website Participants then need test prove they can live 72 hours without their phones by taking part in a home based mobile phone detox. For this challenge, they will receive a Stress Test Kit to their door which contains a special compartment to put their beloved gadgets to rest for the 3-day period and a personalized hashtag, so friends can send them encouraging messages through Twitter and the Daycare website. The winners who will get to go to the real digital detox in Ibiza, are the ones who survive the 72-hour period without their phones and receive the most messages on both the Daycare website and on Twitter.

Thinking about living without your phone for 72 hours might be inducing panicking you, but that’s all the more reason to take the test! Simply order your kit and follow the instructions and  see if you have what it takes and be in with a chance at this exclusive opportunity. What better way to detox from you digital habit and let the all inclusive luxury ease your anxiety!

Try it to believe it: get your own Libresse Multistyle trial package

A while ago I shared my personal experience about Libresse Multistyle Panty liners. I was never a big fan of panty liners. I found them sticky and they’d always wrinkle up like a wad of paper in my underwear. Up until I received a trial pack of Libresse’s new Multistyle panty liners. These DO fit in every type of underwear. Thanks to the flexible sides you can fold, the thing stays exactly where it’s supposed to be. Thongs, hipsters, boxer shorts; it all fits perfectly. The panty liner absorbs as much as a normal panty liner and provides good protection and a fresh feeling.


We received a few trial packages at the office, so I convinced my fellow Fit Girls to try them too. This is what they thought of it:

Shelley: “Normally I really do not like panty liners, you feel them all the time and working out with them is just not even possible. I’m glad someone found a solution for this! Now I can feel way safer when I’m doing a diehard workout when it’s that time of the month.”

Laura: “What I really liked about the panty liners is that they fit really nicely in every kind of underwear. No need to adjust them, which I normally always have to do with other panty liners.”

Laura M:“When I work out I don’t want to be worrying that the person behind me can see my underwear, or more and these panty liners go unnoticed even in my work out leggings. There were no visible lines because they are super discreet and fit any style of underwear which is great because there should be no excuse not to squat low!”

If you want to try it yourself to believe it, we have a little surprise for you: we can give away 20 trial packages to you Fit Girls! Please let me know why you’d like to try Libresse Multistyle in the comments below. The first 20 responses will receive a package. Yay!

Design & Win the perfect panties with Libresse Multistyle

We all know exactly when it’s that time of the month again. You get more emotional, you feel less comfortable in whatever you’re wearing and working out sucks. Yes, we’re talking about being on your period. But what about those weeks in between your period? Hopefully you don’t feel like crap the entire month, but you DO wanna feel fresh and clean during those weeks too! I don’t want be dependent on tampons or sanitary towels the entire month, so I figured, let’s try Libresse Multistyle panty liners. I tried this type of panty liners for two occasions: extra protection while working out and while I was experiencing some very light bleeding because of my coil. 

Feeling comfortable while working out
Usually when I am on my period, I use tampons, but when I work out I always feel a bit insecure. Like I could use some extra protection. And when I have a light bleeding because of my coil, tampons are actually not very comfortable. I never was a big fan of panty liners though. I found them sticky and they’d always wrinkle up like a wad of paper in my underwear.

Up until I received a trial pack of Libresse’s new Multistyle panty liners. These DO fit in every type of underwear! Thanks to the flexible sides you can fold, the thing stays exactly where it’s supposed to be. Thongs, hipsters, boxer shorts; it all fits perfectly. The panty liner absorbs as much as a normal panty liner and provides good protection and a fresh feeling. In addition, the liners are individually packaged and thus so easy and discrete to carry in your handbag.

I know we don’t feel like our usual confident and sexy self when being our your period, but there’s no excuse to wear huge granny panties underneath your sport tight anymore! You can save them for an intense ‘eating-Ben&Jerry’s-while-watching-Grey’s-Anatomy‘-session on the couch. And that’s about it 😉

Try it to believe it and get your own Libresse Multistyle trial package.

Design and win your own underwear
On you period or not, wearing beautiful underwear makes you feel like a goddess, right? Libresse gives you the opportunity to design YOUR ideal sexy panties. You can decide exactly what it looks like by choosing the fabric, yarn and accessories. Pretty awesome right? Every week, Libresse places a different type of underwear in the spotlights. The joint end result of all designs will be made by lingerie designer Cassandra Saeijs, owner of Lijfgoed.

Go and design your perfect panties!

Photoreport: Bugaboo Runner for Fit Mommies

If being a #FITGIRLCODE Ambassador wasn’t already awesome! I received an invitation by #FITGIRLCODE HQ if I wanted to represent the Fit Girls that are moms too at the Dutch launch of the Bugaboo Runner. Well, let me think about that…. Duh, of course! And what a fun and fit quality time day out with my boo it was.


The event was hosted in Amsterdam’s Vondelpark. And as we entered the park, my baby boy and me soon saw 7 beautiful strollers lined up next to a lovely picknick table.


Laurianne Ruhe, a Dutch foodblogger, hosted the healthy picknick table loaded with all kinds of healthy pleasures: dates and nuts truffles; mason jars filled with fruit, granola and yoghurt; peanut butter bites… They’ve set up a cute little kids corner too, filled with kidsproof snacks like popcorn, veggie chips and fruit.

Wunderwasser: smell wunderful while excercising

A small moment of happiness: if someone says you smell good! It always makes me feel confident about myself. Showering and brushing your teeth regulary really adds up to a nice odeur of course, but perfum is the thing that makes you ‘smell out in the crowd’. I am true loyalist when it comes to perfum brands. If I find one that suits me, I stick to it for a few years. Not only because I am a don’t- change-a-winning-formula’ kinda person, but also because I always get lost if I try to find a new one. There are SO many out there! So let me help you find to find a lovely fragance in the haystack of all perfums. Wunderwasser!

“Anyone who doesn’t believe in miracles isn’t a realist!”

Wonders allow us to step away from reality and immerse ourselves in an intense and very personal moment. Wunderwasser Eu de Collogne aims to capture this sense into a fragance. This twin fragance is designed with women and men in mind wo are open for new and unexpected experiences. Well, if this did not convince me to try a new perfume, the fresh and blossommy smell sure did!

Smelling nice in the gym

I was actually looking for a fragance I could use when I work out(next to my regular perfume). Of course you already wear deodorant while excersising, but smelling extra nice in the gym is also courtesy to your neighbour Fit Girl in the gym. I didn’t want this perfume to be too expensive or smell too strong. Wunderwasser meets all these criteria! Initially I bought it to smell nice while excercising, but I like it so much that I’ll definitely start switching it up with my ‘regular’ perfume.

Like I already said, it’s a twin fragance, so you can also surprise your siginificant other with a bottle. It’s also a bit of a present for you, because being around a nice smelling man is somehow very -sigh-…alluring. You can buy Wunderwasser at DA, Kruidvat and most indepent drugstores for 14,99 euro. Go go go and smell nice! 🙂

So, what are you waiting for? Don’t wait until the last minute –

#FITGIRLCODE Recipes in the Albert Heijn e-book

Last week Alicia and I cooked  some delicious, healthy dishes at the Albert Heijn Bio pop-up store in Amsterdam! But we weren’t the only ones, there were some awesome bloggers creating some good stuff. And guess what?! All these healthy recipes will be bundled into an e-book called AH Biologisch! That’s kinda a Fit Girl’s dream right, having your healthy recipe in an e-book 🙂 So what did we prepare? We made 2 healthy dinner recipes containing mostly organic products. For the full recipes and more, download the e-book here

Healthy organic noodles

This was so delicious! We used organic noodles, some chicken and veggies like broccoli and avocado, and voila: a healthy and super tasty dish. We all know by now why broccoli is basically the superhero among veggies, and avocado’s, well, they are just too good 😉 So we mixed everything together and the result was amazing, really something you should try!

Albert Heijn has a wide range of products that are organic, environment-friendly and have not been handled with chemicals. Since us Fit Girls need a healthy world to run around on and a healthy body to do that with, we prefer our foods to be organic!

Vegetarian pasta with walnuts

I love pasta! Even more when it’s healthy 😉 For this pasta we used organic whole wheat pasta and a lot of veggies and herbs, like tomatoes, avocado’s, pesto and basil. And, maybe somewhat surprising, walnuts! This is a perfect option for the vegetarian Fit Girls, but even if you are not, this is a delicious variation you should definitely try out.

It can sometimes be quite a task to gather organic ingredients for your meal, but luckily many stores, like the Dutch supermarket Albert Heijn, are expanding their organic assortiment. You can basically find an organic alternative to almost every ingredient you’re looking for.

Download the AH Biologisch e-book at for the full recipes (of us and the other bloggers) and personal tips & tricks on how to eat organic! We’d love to see you experimenting with organic products – it gives us inspiration too! So make sure to share  your favorites on social media with #lekkerbio and #AH.

Review: Get Your Teeth CocoWhite

After trying the activated charcoal I found another great (chemical free) way for whitening your teeth. Flavored coconut oil in a sachet with an instruction so easy that everybody should try it! I am amazed by the result!! I want you to meet CocoWhite!

What is it? Like I said, flavored coconut oil in a sachet. Nothing more, nothing less. 🙂 I already knew that oil pulling could make your teeth whiter but I was frankly too lazy too try it. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE coconut oil but I hate the fact that it is a solid brick below 24 degrees. Which means that you have to spoon out a piece (with some force) and the fact that oil pulling should be done every day … Nope, too lazy! But! CocoWhite has found the answer to this (lazy)  “problem”.  They’ve put the exact amount of coconut oil in a sachet. Of course it is solid but if you put the sachet under warm/hot water, then in a matter of seconds it’s liquid and ready to use. 😉 You will receive a  package with 14 sachets, so you use one per day. You can choose between two flavors, minty fresh or vanilla. I tried the vanilla version!


The instructions

Step 1: Squeeze sachet into mouth
Step 2: Swirl for 5- 15 minutes (I did the 15 minutes every day!)
Step 3: Spit out & smile

Easy peasy! To be honest, I am not a big fan of vanilla so the first attempt was not a pretty sight. But I pushed myself through 14 days of 15 minutes of swirling and luckily after a few days I got used to the taste. I also started seeing that my teeth got whiter after 5 days already! The only downside that I can come up with is that it is pretty hard to swirl for 15 minutes. A few times I caught myself just staring at the TV without swirling but with the oil still in my mouth. I was like ‘Oh right! I should swirl’.. But I guess that just depends on how quickly you are distracted. Keep reading for the final result!

WIN €100,- giftcard for organic groceries at AH Bio Pop-Up Store

As you might have seen on Instagram, Fit Girl Alicia and I went to the temporary Albert Heijn Bio Pop-up Store in Amsterdam last week! Did you have some time to stop by? To be honest, we were surprised about the size of the assortment  Did you know that AH has over 1.200 organic products in their stores? The assortment is huge, there’s basically an organic alternative for every product. Tea, soups, even organic chocolate! 😉

Personally, I didn’t know that there was such a large organic range available. I prefer these alternatives since it’s a healthier option and I feel that it’s better for my body too. So whenever there’s an organic option for an ingredient I need then I definitely go for that one! I’m glad that Albert Heijn has made it way easier now to make an organic meal. I used to go to a special store, but now I can just go to the closest AH and get everything I need to make a healthy and tasty meal. That’s a win-win situation, right? You have to admit, there’s not really a reason anymore not to go organic!


Since my life is always really busy as a CEO of two companies, I need all the energy I can get. Organic food makes me feel more energized and fuels my body properly. When I finally get the chance to workout, I am completely prepared because I make these healthy choices during the day so I’m not overly exhausted before I get my sweat on. And eating organic does not only make me feel good physically, but also mentally, since I know I’m taking care of myself and making good choices.


WIN €100,- giftcard for organic groceries at AH Bio Pop-Up Store

This is only for the Dutch Fit Girls (sorry internationals!) Albert Heijn is going to give away 5 bags full of AH bio products worth €25,- every week AND once a €100,- AH bio giftcard for the most original and most awesome photo. Jackpot! Sooo.. How can you win? Follow the next 3 steps:

  2. Share it on Instagram/Twitter/Pinterest or on the Facebook page of Albert Heijn
  3. Use the hashtags #lekkerbio and #AH and tag @AlbertHeijn

Review: Avanca wireless earphones (+ DISCOUNT CODE!)

Don’t you hate it when you’re trapped in the wires of your earphones, during your workout? Argh. I always feel like I’m in a spider web! Thankfully, Avanca International contacted us to test their new wireless earphones. This bluetooth headset is perfect for running or exercising. Let me tell you, I’ve already recommended this headset to all of my friends. I couldn’t do one training without it anymore! I’ll give you a review of the Avanca S1 Headset. And stay tuned! Because we scored a great discount code for you, woohoo!


Starting up

The Avanca S1 Headset is very compact. When you first purchase it, make sure to charge it with the small USB-cable that comes with the kit. I found it super easy to make a Bluetooth connection with my iPhone. I pressed the small button for a couple of seconds and the headset popped up on my iPhone. Once you have made this connection, it will re-connect automatically the next time!


The design is very modern and compact. The headset comes in multiple colours: black, white, blue and orange. I preferred black! The headset is flexible and foldable, which makes it easy to adjust to your headsize (I have a big head, haha!). It comes with a cute little storage bag, to protect it from damage.
When putting the headset on, make sure to check the left and right marks on the product. Once I put the headset on, I didn’t even feel it anymore! It’s very lightweight and comfortable. Yet I could feel it was stable enough for a run.



Okay, let’s do this! Time to take this little baby for a test ride! I’ve tested the headset for a dozen times now: during running, box jumping and even jumping rope. It’s sooo stable, I swear! It will NOT fall or slide of your head. I love the fact that there are no strings attached. This is also a big plus for upper body workouts: your elbows will not get stuck in the wires and you can move freely! Because of the flexibility of the headset, you can fold it around your neck if you want to talk to somebody.


I think the music quality is pretty good! It’s a clear crisp sound. The Bluetooth connection is strong as well: I could walk away from my iPhone for 10 meters and still have great connectivity. I only heared one little glitch in the music (for less then a second), when I unlocked my iPhone. You can adjust the volume of your music with small buttons on the headset. A great trick I learned: press the volume buttons longer, and it will skip a music track! So there’s no need to get your smartphone out. You can also take calls with the small button. But personally, I don’t think you should be answering phonecalls during your killer workout 😉



The Avanca S1 wireless headset is compatible with all Bluetooth devices, such as iPhone, iPod, Samsung Galaxy, HTC, Nokia, and so on. It can be used up to 5 hours of music listening, or 7 hours of calling. Charging the battery is fast (1-2 hours) with the USB-cable. It’s only 17 grams, OMG that’s so light!


Before I tried this headset, I honestly thought “Hmm, cool gadget, but I really don’t need anything like this”. Well, I was wrong, haha! I love love love this headset and I’m definately not going back to my wired headset! These earphones will give you a good music quality, the ability to switch music tracks and change your volume, without touching your phone, and they stay on your head as they should!
Are you curious to try them out? Avanca will give you Fit Girls a huge discount! If you enter fitgirl as a discount code with your order, you will get 20 EUROS discount! That makes this cool gadget only €29.95 instead of €49.95. You can only use this discount at (they only deliver in the Netherlands & Belgium, sorry international Fit Girls!).

It’s not always easy to get your daily dose of fruits en veggies into your system. Especially not when you’re really busy and don’t have time to think ahead and do some food prepping. Last week Aranka and I had a real busy week with a lot of deadlines, social activities, workouts, boyfriends, cleaning etc. So to us it was the perfect timing to try the Uzuma Green Juices.

The Fit Program
Uzuma produces juices in which veggies form the basis. A lot of veggies, combined with fruit. Nothing is added to the juices. No fragrance, colours or flavours. Absolutely nothing! Uzuma uses an innovative slow juice process. Therefore you benefit from 100% pure force of nature. Reading this we got really enthusiastic to start the Fit Program. Uzuma offers different kinds of programs, but this program only required me to drink two juices a day. You don’t have to replace any meals by juice, just eat what you normally eat, drink two juices a day and enough water (2 liter) to keep all the vitamins flowing trough your body.

WIN a Polar Loop activity tracker!

Being a Fit Girl, I always try to make sure I get enough activity during the day. Even if you don’t have enough time to exercise every day (I sure don’t), there are small little things you can do to make sure you move enough, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator or bicycling to the office instead of taking the car. The Polar Loop activity tracker is perfect to help you track your activity and make you rethink your day. What makes you move? 

The Polar Loop tracks all your activities, from a simple walk to the refrigerator (hehe) to a hardcore CrossFit workout. It even tracks your movements during your sleep! When you’ve been in one position for too long, it will also encourage you to start moving around again. It’s just like having a tiny personal trainer around your wrist.

On the website, you can keep up a workout log and schedule your sessions. Scheduling when you are going to work out can be very helpful – you actually free up time to make sure you get moving!



Now here’s the best thing: you can WIN one of these babies! Show us on Instagram how you #rethinkyourday by tagging @polarglobal and using the hashtags #rethinkyourday and #polarloop to get your hands on your very own Polar Loop! You even get to choose the color yourself. The contest runs for two weeks until the 27th October, so let’s get started!

#FITGIRLCODE challenges you to show us how you #rethinkyourday and be more active in your daily routine!

We’ve all been there – you go to a city you’ve never been before and you don’t know where to go. Where can you get the best smoothies? Where do you go for a healthy lunch? Where should you show off your dansmoves? DELI Amsterdam now has the solution for you: a personal and tailored overview of all the places in Amsterdam that you would be interested in going to. So no more wandering around and hoping this cafe will have spelt bread on their menu, now you know where to go in advance!

Last week, I went into the city with DELI Amsterdam and I have to say, I had a really awesome day. Tailored to my Fit Girl preferences, they followed me around while I went to Dr. Blend, SLA, Adidas, Run2Day, the Bodytec lounge and Cottoncake. I think most of these names pretty much speak for themselves 😉 Let me tell you that it was definitely a fit day in Amsterdam! I ate really healthy and delicious food and had the best smoothies at Dr. Blend, SLA and Cottoncake, worked my ass off at Bodytec and got some new running shoes from Saucony at Run2Day.

So to all Fit Girls going to or even living in Amsterdam: go explore the city! Find the best smoothie bar or the most awesome gym (I had a great workout at Bodytec). DELI Amsterdam is a free service so what’s holding you back? Go to their website to see what you should be doing in Amsterdam.
