Unzipped: Louise Hudson

The London fitness editor and co-founder of Sportsister.com unpacks her gym bag.

As co-founder and editor of the UK health and fitness website SportSister, Louise Hudson has blurred the lines between sport as a passion, a hobby and a job. Fittingly, she moves between types of exercise with equal ease. "I have recently become hooked on triathlons so running, cycling and swimming make up a big part of my fitness regime," she says. "I also do a weekly yoga class to try and stretch myself out a bit and take a breather from the hecticness of my life! And I have just discovered Equinox’s Barre Burn class which I love." Hudson, a workout fiend who has seen, worn and tried it all, shows us the favorites that have earned a place in her gym bag.
