Women's Health (UK) - - NEWS - Claire San­der­son / Ed­i­tor Fol­low me on In­sta­gram @claire­sander­son

I’m jet­lagged. I’m so bloom­ing tired, I can’t sleep. You know when you need some zeds so badly that you tie your­self up in knots try­ing to drop off ? That’s been me this week. I’ve just spent five days in New York work­ing with the Women’s Health US team, de­vis­ing a plan to make WH an even big­ger and bet­ter global pow­er­house. Did you know we’re the fastest grow­ing magazine brand in the world? We’re in 53 coun­tries and pub­lish 29 edi­tions. Pretty im­pres­sive, eh? And six years on from its launch, WH UK is still in­creas­ing its au­di­ence. We re­cently posted our eleventh con­sec­u­tive growth in cir­cu­la­tion fig­ures and you’re go­ing to see more from us this year than ever, in­clud­ing events, prod­ucts and books. Ex­cit­ing times. Speak­ing of events, I’ve got a busy sum­mer ahead. You’ll find me on stage in­ter­view­ing some of the most awe-in­spir­ing women in well­ness at the sea­son’s best fit­ness fes­ti­vals, kick­ing off with BE:FIT Lon­don (4-6 May). If you want to hear me drilling Alice Live­ing on how she got her abs, learn why Jas­mine Hem­s­ley is peren­ni­ally zen, and find out what Madeleine Shaw does to re­tain her gor­geous glow, then get your­self along to Lon­don’s Busi­ness De­sign Cen­tre. I’m also host­ing the Pow­er­ful Women in Busi­ness panel so, if you’re an aspir­ing en­tre­pre­neur or look­ing to make the next step in your ca­reer, it’ll be well worth get­ting in the front row for that one. Re­mem­ber to come over and say hi. Keep your eyes peeled on my In­sta­gram (@claire­sander­son) for more de­tails of other fit­ness events I’ll be at this year. I hope you like the lit­tle present we’ve given you along with the is­sue this month, cour­tesy of the won­der­ful Carly Rowena. Who doesn’t want a great bum, af­ter all? Mine’s never go­ing to be small, but it’s not about size, is it? Let’s con­cen­trate on lift­ing and strength­en­ing to cre­ate a shapely der­rière. So, it’s Carly to res­cue. We’ve also got a fea­ture this month about how to squat cor­rectly (lots of us don’t) and the best squat vari­a­tions for your body type. So that’s tech­nique a plan to fol­low. We’re here to serve. I’m also lov­ing our fea­ture on page 32 about why you should ab­so­lutely in­clude carbs in your diet. At we’d never en­dorse cut­ting out food groups, but carbs have got a bad rap else­where. We cut through all that crap to give you the low-down on the ben­e­fits of your spag bol. Don’t for­get to let me know what you think of the is­sue. Un­til next month.
