Keeping Trim During the Festive Season

Routine goes out the window in the silly season. There are Christmas parties and functions, public holidays (so, studio closures) and you may be lucky enough to get a holiday. For most of us, exercise slips during this time. But, there are now easier ways you can stay on top of it. With YouTube and apps, working out at home has never been so easy!

To avoid having to make the typical January 1st goal of ‘getting into shape,’ take a look at these websites, apps, and videos which will help to keep you in check during the festive season.

If you have ever done Barre, you’ll know that it’s not easy! Those 1kg weights feel like they are 10 times as heavy after all those isometric holds and countless reps. The great thing about this is that you can get this tough and effective workout done quickly and efficiently. These workout videos can be done in the comfort of your own home, using things from around the house as equipment. Don’t have 1kg weights? Grab a can of tomatoes!

These programs are specifically designed and categorised and bundled together based on your needs. There pre and postnatal programs as well as boot camps, total toning, and quick fix programs.
