Most Frequently Asked Fitness Questions …

How Often Do You Workout? I train 5 times each week. (This is usually 3 runs and 2 workouts.) My rest days are usually Tuesday and Friday. If I’m training for a race then I will usually drop a workout to focus my energy on my run days, especially if the weekend run is long one. I always include a lot of mobility and stretching too. Life is often very busy, but I prioritise my running and my workouts because I realise how important my health is. I need to move for both my body and mind to feel good. What’s the best way to lose belly fat? Now this is a question that I get asked a lot! I’m sure that people would love for me to say that there is a flat tummy secret or quick and easy solution, but unfortunately that’s not true. When it comes to reducing body fat there are lots of things to consider. Exercise, diet, sleep, stress, genetics, all play a part. It’s important to focus on all …

Winter Workout X Stylist Magazine.

Earlier this year I teamed up with Stylist magazine to share my top tips for winter training. It can be hard to motivate yourself when it’s grey and cold outside, here’s how I’m planning to keep on track. Take Time For You – We all have mega busy lives. Don’t let work, kids, and other commitments stop you from training. Going out for a run or an hour yoga class may be the only hour of the day that you’re doing something for yourself. Make it a priority, you’ll feel happier and more energised when you return. Make Fitness Fit – Make fitness a part of your everyday lifestyle, instead of another thing on your to-do lis. For example – Walk, rather than drive the kids to school and if they have scooters, put on your trainers and jog along side them.  That Feeling – One of the best things about HIIT is the feeling that you get afterwards. It really boosts your mood. Winter can make us feel sleepy and lethargic , but HIIT …

Adidas Buddy Workout

This month I have teamed up with Tally Rye and adidas UK to create a series of Buddy Workouts. Together, we are #HereToCreate some fitness fun moves and give your summer workout a boost! It’s so much more fun to workout with a friend, so Tally and I have created four short videos to showcase our favourite moves. As it’s a parter workout, you will need to grab a friend for support, literally! You don’t need to go to the gym for this session, you can do these moves anywhere. Visit the adidaswomenuk Facebook page to see our full video series. Tag a fitness friend that needs some motivation this week. Tally and I had so much fun creating these videos and my whole body was aching the next day! (You can see a behind the scenes video over on Tally’s YouTube channel. . . here) Also, head to instagram and search #HereToCreate for some awesome adidas fitspo!

The Body Bootcamp

This month I have been hosting ‘The Body Bootcamp’ to kick start the New Year and to beat those winter blues. Each morning myself and a bunch of mega Mummies have been jumping, squatting stretching and sweating! The session always starts with high energy cardio exercises to really warm us up, followed by some interval training, core strengthening and lots of stretching. All of my sessions have a big focus on stretching as I think it is one of the best things that you can do for your body. Regular stretching will help to prevent injuries, improve your posture and it can even aid your digestion too. Not to mention how impressed your kids will be, when they see you do the splits! Over the last three weeks I have loved seeing all of the ladies each day. They inspire me with their determination & commitment. It can be difficult to start getting fit, especially if you haven’t exercised in a long time. The first session is always the hardest! January is often the time that …
