Being fit is not just about losing weight and gaining muscle, but for me it’s about a healthy state of mind. I believe in living a balanced life, where you eat well, exercise and allow yourself to indulge every now and then. Life is too short to ban cheese and wine, but also not long enough to not look after your body.
I’ve always said that being healthy and fit also helps my mindset, and it’s true. When I don’t exercise, my view of myself and my body isn’t great. Just one workout can change that and make me feel fit and strong.
Being fit doesn’t’ have to mean slogging it out on a treadmill for hours, there are many fun ways to get fit.
One revolution that has been catching my eye lately is Les Mills. I first heard about Les Mills when another blogger started doing their classes. I have her on Facebook and she would always post when she went. Over the past couple of years, she has now become and instructor. It’s been fantastic to see her journey and her body change. To look at her, she looks strong. Her arms are amazing, quads and abs pop. She works hard and sometimes does more than one class a day, of course most people can’t commit to this intensity, but to get that extra bit of fitness in your life, 2 or 3 classes a week are all you need.
Les Mills inspires millions people to get moving every week in their group training classes that have a mix of great music and cutting-edge science to help people fall in love with fitness. Their tribe of 130,000 certified instructors bring those workouts to life every day across both the UK and the world. There’s loads of places you can do the Les Mills classes in Leeds, York, or even your own home town.
They also offer on demand classes online and have exercise for children to get them into the great habit of keeping fit!
There are loads of classes to pick from, from sprint (similar to spinning) to get your cardio on to bodypump to help tone and get lean in the total body workout.
Most of the classes are between 30 mins and an hour, which is the same as a TV episode.
So what do you have to lose?
