It's holiday season and lots of us will be travelling and having fabulous times away from home. This often means leaving our fitness routine behind. But it doesn't have to be that way. Whilst for most of us holidays are not the time to push our fitness to the next level we can all find a spare 10 minutes a couple of times a week to try and maintain what we have achieved over the last months.
High-Intensity Holiday Workout
My lovely Edinburgh boot campers have asked me to come up with a holiday workout that is quick and doesn't require any equipment. Whether you are in the back garden, in a hotel room or at the beach this 10-15 minute high-intensity summer workout ticks all the boxes: It's a full body workout, time saving but effective and works on both cardio and strength.
I recommend that you download an interval timer for your phone, it makes keeping track of workout an rest times much easier. Choose to go through the circuit 2 or 3 times depending on how you feel on the day and how much time you have. Get your partner, friends or kids to join in to help you stay motivated.
Enjoy and happy holidays! I look forward to seeing all my personal training clients as well as boot camp clients in August!
It was just over a year ago that I ran my first boot camp session in the Meadows. And what a great bunch of women showed up on that very first day! Most of these wonderful women still come along to boot camp now and it's been such a pleasure to be part of their fitness journey.
Since that first day fitandhappy boot camp has grown from a few morning sessions to 10 sessions per week in the Meadows as well as two new locations: Victoria Park in Trinity and Ravelston Park in Blackhall. We now have a team of coaches and have big plans for the future. Watch this space!
We celebrated our 1 year anniversary of fitandhappy boot camps in the Meadows with a BBQ. It was such a lovely event with delicious food, great company and lots of fun and laughter. It will definitely need to be repeated next year!
Thank you to everybody who came along, made food, ate, drank, laughed and wheeled BBQs into the Meadows and back!
