Holiday Workouts – Part 1

.. Or check out the videos on our Instagram profile here:

The cardio sessions follow the same guidelines as the body weight sessions. There is no need for fancy equipment which means you can do them anywhere and they are easy to do alone or with friends. The sessions last between 20-30 minutes and will definitely make you break a sweat and put a smile on your face.

Keep an eye out on our social media platforms over the next few weeks to see videos of the summer holiday cardio workouts brought to you by Luke, David and Jo!

At the end on June, we will provide you with a PDF file where you find all the sessions from out holiday workout series and further instructions – all ready to come with you on your holiday. The PDF will also be available through our Facebook page.

Session 4 – Jo’s card game

Jo’s favourite when on holiday! It is easy, tough and so much fun with friends!

You need: A deck of playing cards.

Instructions: Choose four exercises: one for clubs, one for spade, one for hearts and one for diamonds.

Start pulling cards out of the deck of cards and let the numbers on the card decide how many reps and the suit decide which exercise you are performing. Try to play your way through the whole deck of playing cards with as little rest as possible.

Play with a friend and cheer each other on while doing every rep together, or share the work load evenly between you.

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!
