Turkish Get Up

Neil loves a good Turkish Get Up. I can’t tell you how many times I have been in one of his Kettlebell classes and he’s opted to finish the session off with a few get ups. It all sounds like a good idea when he says “pick up your lightest kettlebell, we are going to finish off with 3 reps”. ‘Easy!’ we all sigh with...

Beach Body Ready for £1

The sun is shining and I’m feeling excited about summer 2016: beach trips… BBQs… parties. Unfortunately, these are all tainted by the fact I forgot to whip my beach body into shape in time for the good weather (can you relate?). Perhaps you are still carrying post-Christmas weight or never quite stuck to your New Year’s resolution. If (like me) you’re feeling more ‘beached whale’ than...

Exercise for your Mind

It’s Mental Awareness Week, so we have decided to talk about the benefits of exercise for your mind.

More often than not, our minds give up well before our bodies do. Causing us to fail at...

Why we love Burpees (no, really)

Ever done burpees? Or 50? The burpee has to be the most moaned about exercise out there. It’s hard. Really hard. That’s because, in effect, it is the combination of at least 4 different exercises. So, why do we make you do them?  Burpees are amazing (no, really they are) and unlike some exercises, they aren’t restricted to a particular style of class. You can...
