Without good nutrition, exercise alone can actually deplete your body of essential nutrients it needs to repair and rebuild.
- HEAD TO THE BARRE
This style of training is made up of traditional moves modified to suit all levels. A ballet barre is used to help you balance while doing isometric strength exercises (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles), combined with high reps of movements with a small range of motion.
Barre classes combine gentle strength exercises (using body-weight) with flexibility and coordination. The slow and purposeful movements help with muscular control and core stability.
Remember to tighten your glutes!
- HIT THE BIKE
Take your pick from a stationary bike at home or in the gym, or try a spin class (often highly energetic with loud music and a definite fun factor). Alternatively, take to the wheels and enjoy the chance to explore the outdoors, or use it as your daily commute by cycling to or from work.
This low-impact exercise can be tailored to your fitness goals and interests. It’s great for burning kilojoules, building muscle, challenging endurance and improving overall fitness.
- EAT THE BOXER
With moves that promote fat-burning as well as toning up the arms, core and thighs, boxing is a full-body workout that, once you know the moves, can be done anywhere, any time.
Boxing burns kilojoules, releases stress and helps to sculpt strong muscles and a lean physique.
