12 Days of Fitmas
On the 10th day of Fitmas my PT gave to me:
The kettlebell is probably one of the most beneficial and versatile piece of gym equipment you can own. This kettlebell tabata workout will have you sweating in seconds and will help to get the tone and definition in all of the right places!
Hey there guys! Here’s another great exercise/">hiit tabata workout to get your body in to tip top shape! I know we’re heading in to the Autumn months and you’re not really thinking about showing your body off on the beach, but now is the perfect time to start working on the perfect beach body ready for next summer. It took me 7 months to lose 2.5 stone in a steady and safe way. If you want to do the same for next summer, now is the time to get started 🙂 there’s plenty of other tabata workouts on my blog so make sure you check them out. Print them out and pop them on the fridge to get inspired!
Don’t forget these 5 minute workouts can get extended for a 20 minute workout if you repeat it 4 times!

Happy Tabata Tuesday everyone! Today’s tabata workout is one with a difference, I’m trying to mix it up a bit because I like to keep it interesting, I can get bored quite easily and whilst routine is great for sticking to a plan I find routine mundane so by mixing up the tabata workouts I’m keeping up the intensity but changing the workout.
Remember if you want to make it really intense repeat 4 times to make it a full length workout.
Here’s a tabata workout with a slight difference, this is solely based on using weights. Again don’t worry girls it will most definitely not make you bulk up. Make sure you choose a weight that will challenge you but also isn’t so heavy that you can’t finish the movements correctly.
Don’t forget you can repeat the whole thing 4 times to make it a decent 20 minute workout 🙂

It’s the day after the bank holiday weekend so no doubt you’ve all been a little bit naughty and maybe indulged a little too much (I know I did!) So now it’s time to get our butts into great shape and work our bodies to the max with this 5 minute tabata work out. It’s full of jumps, squats, abdominal and arm workouts to shape up and tone all over. If you want an extreme workout repeat x 4 for a 20 minute session!

As Fathers’ Day has just passed it got me to thinking about my childhood, yes we had tv and computer games but that was a treat most of our time was spent running around outside creating havoc and coming up absolutely exhausted and ready for dinner and bed! We seemed so much happier and healthier than the kids of today and we didn’t have a care in the world! So as part of my 80’s childhood nostalgia I thought it would be fun to look at the games we played as children and how they’re actually a great form of exercise for us adults. Why not arrange a fun get together with all your mates, dress like Jane Fonda and have an 80’s exercise day! I hope I can find a scrunchie for my hair!!!
Skipping – This is a great way to burn some calories, 10 minutes of this is the same as 40 minutes running! This is an all over body workout, and will help you improve your flexibility whilst getting your heart rate up.
Bike Rides – Everyone remembers their first proper bike, and most importantly nobody ever forgets how to ride one so there’s no excuses! It’s a stress relieving activity (unless you’re riding through a minefield or something I can’t imagine that riding a bike would make that less stressful!), it’s a low impact activity so it’s easier on your joints so is a great alternative to running. And it works your glutes and quads for gorgeous looking gams! Winner 🙂
Climbing Trees – If you’ve never climbed a tree before then you have never lived!! I have so many memories of standing on a pair of step ladders in my garden standing on my tippy toes reaching for the lowest branch so I could swing myself up into the tree and then my brother and sister or friends would be on the ground below pretending to be a crocodile or some other child gobbling monster that wanted to eat me! Now it may take some convincing to get your friends or siblings to do this with you and what with health & safety these days it’s probably a better idea to just head to your nearest Go Ape or climbing warehouse where you can get a full body workout whilst safely harnessed and attached to ropes etc. to stop you getting any nasty bumps or bruises. It’s still a blast and you get a Go Ape Certificate!!
Roller Skating – Finally head to your nearest roller disco, you’d be surprised how many there are around! This is a full on aerobic workout, has a high calorific burn and because you’re using a full body motion you are working all of your muscles. Knee high socks? check! Roller skates? check! Now to remember how to do the cola bottle move without falling over and grazing my chin…….
