Holiday Workouts - Part 1 - Result Fitness Durham

Holiday Workouts – Part 1

The holiday season is just around the corner, and we are leaving the gym behind for beaches, walks, sun, and relaxation. When on holiday, exercise is often not a priority and that is OK – after all, you are on holiday. Lying on a beach somewhere instead of going to the gym should not make you feel bad or guilty, and it is not the purpose of this blog to make you feel that way. However, we know some of you out there wish to stay active on a holiday and struggle to find ways to do that, and we want to help you!

If you wish to exercise when you are away to keep fit or to make the transition into the gym easier when you get back, there are a lot of things you can do without access to a gym. In this blog, we provide you with a few quick and easy sessions you can do anywhere with little or no equipment needed. The sessions last between 15-30 minutes, and are suitable for everyone, from beginners to the more advanced.

First out is body weight sessions you can easily do without access to the gym.

Next Sunday we will give you 4 cardio sessions and a PDF file with all the workouts. In the meantime, you can find videos of the workouts on all our social media platforms. Stay tuned!
