New trainer Alert
As most of you are now aware, Devon has been working hard on getting her qualifications to become a personal trainer and we are pleased to say she has passed her initial assessments and can now take both bootcamps and classes going forwards. Devon's already building a reputation for including exercises such as the 'Buckeraoo' and giving you all achy legs after the workouts, but its important to know she also has a passion for yoga, olympic weightlifting and running. Expect to see her taking classes very soon and hope to introduce some of her own classes in the near future.
ps James is now very happy as he can have a lay in, in the mornings.
New month, fresh measurements.
We cant stress enough just how important it is to track your progress regularly. It gives you a clear understanding of where you are currently at and allows you to set goals for where you want to be. We are big advocates for not relying on the scale as we dont believe it offers a true reflection of the hard work you put in on a daily basis and find taking measurements a really effective way to measure progress.
Take your measurements and set a date in the diary for 4 weeks time to repeat. Please send us a message with your measurements, so that we can keep you accountable.
Using the link below you can follow along to a video of us carrying out our measurements with a partner, or click the second link to view a solo video of how to take your own measurements.

Finding time to 'Breathe'
How often do you take time out for yourself or your family?
We all live busy hectic lives and often forget to take a moment to step away from the phone or laptop and simply 'Breathe'
We have found that going on short walks either early morning or at the end of a long day can really help clear your head space and help you to process whats going on in your world at the moment. Perhaps you have a certain place or activity that is your go to, to unwind and reset ready for another day.
Our Challenge for you is to send us a picture of your favourite places or activities to 'Breathe' and why you go there/do them.
The aim of this challenge isn't to have a 'winner' but to help each other find new places to visit, different activities to try and to help us all 'Breathe' a little,
Move of the month
Hip mobility and brain power are put to the test with this combination. The 90/90 is fantastic at challenging your hips internal and external rotation and the climber is brilliant for stretching the hip flexors which is really important for any of you office workers out there. Combine the two together and you have a great flow developing, challenging your body in new ways, ensuring your body gets a good workout, but also improves mobility at the same time.
How to do 90/90 climbers:
- Start sat on your bum with both feet set shoulder width apart, bending at the knees.
- Drop both legs down to your right hand side achieving a 90' bend at both knees.
- Keeping your feet on the floor, Raise your left knee first and transition into your 90/90 position on the left hand side.
