Up Close and Personal With Kristin Lee Lewis | Paris International Fitness


A few weeks back we had the privilege of experiencing a personal training session in the Jardin des Tuileries with Kristin Lee Lewis, the founder of Paris International Fitness. The session was varied and fulfilling and left us feeling so great afterwards! The idea of being able to enjoy working out and being guided at the same time to make sure you’re achieving your optimal goals is that motivation we all need to continue with a balanced and active lifestyle.

Since our last blog post on Kristin, that dates back to just over 3 years ago, we were very keen to follow up with an updated post on Kristin’s company, detailing all of the fantastic services that she and her team offer, and delving deeper into Kristin’s inspirations and motivations.

Boulangeries and Baguettes- What You Should Know


There are many inconveniences that come with moving to France. From the complicated, bureaucratic visa process, to the confusing health care system, to dealing with less than stellar customer service, it can sometimes seem like France is a never ending contradiction. But one of the things us expats continue to love and brag about to our friends back at home is the food. One bite of confit de canard or a mille-feuille and all your reservations about life in France just disappear. And be honest, when you head to your favorite boulangerie and walk home with a baguette in hand (ordered bien blanche, to be extra Parisian) you feel like you’re on the set of a cheesy Parisian RomCom, and you love it. So, for this week’s blog post, we’re going to tell you all about boulangeries and baguettes, and make your next visit feels extra special.
