WELCOME TO WEEK FIVE!

This week I want you to go through as many of the exercises as you can. Head back to the previous weeks for the exercises and videos. Have you noticed any changes? Is it too easy? Remember in order to progress we need add reps or increase the weights, ideally by 0.5kg at a time, From time to time due to holidays/life/personal circumstances we need to regress. THIS IS NORMAL! So please do not feel like you have failed. The main thing is getting back on the fitness train and start again. Remember I am always here for you when you need reassurance, guidance or simply need a pep talk.

Floorbarre

Floorbarre has proved hugely popular since I started classes back in April 2019. This is because they are inclusive and most people can manage this class. Here's a fact: I have had a class where we had a 16 year old world champion kickboxer, a professional ballerina and a 72 year old Grandmother! Love it!
