The idea of packing your stuff and going to the gym, doing a workout or worse attempting a run in the heat is far from inspiring. Even I don’t love the thought of slogging away for an hour in the heat of the day. Why would we want to do that? I have a much better plan! How about 30 minutes, not a second more of quick-fire, dynamic, fun circuits which will not only be over in a flash but leave you feeling totally fab, and to top it off it’s all over and done with by 9.30 am in the comfort of your own home! Have I got your attention?
Cue a quick overview of my platform – Caroline’s Circuits and why it might just change the way you think about working out. My workouts are 3 times a week for just 30 minutes. They are interval training circuits which work different muscle groups and challenge the body, keeping the heart rate moderate to high with passive or active rest – they give the perfect mix of strength and cardio for the best results.
The workouts are Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9am (although don’t panic – they are all recorded and available to you within an hour of the session if you can’t make the live).
Mondays and Fridays are workouts focusing on all the muscle groups. A strength-based class where you have the option of using weights or exercising without equipment.
Wednesdays are focussed on the lower body – legs and tummy toning. Using resistance bands if you have them but equally all the classes can be done without equipment.
Classes have been specifically designed to suit all fitness levels and create fitness habits which last & which produce results.
So enough about the platform, let’s talk about the why! Why strength work, why weights and why 30 minutes?
Strength training is both physically and mentally beneficial. As we get older our muscle mass decreases but this can be reversed by strength training. Strength training increases bone density so reduces the risk of fractures and osteoporosis. It helps to build our strength to perform everyday activities with greater ease and prevent unnecessary injuries. Best of all it enhances our mood by boosting our metabolism and stabilising our weight. By strengthening your core you will improve your posture and balance which in turn leaves you less susceptible to lower back pain. It sounds like a no brainer to me! Best of all you can achieve all of this in just three 30 minutes sessions per week with minimal equipment from your living room or garden. So kiss goodbye to gym commutes and expensive fees and say hello to a new you!
