Les Mills Live | London

Have you ever been a room with thousands of people who like exactly the same things as you do, moving at exactly the same time, to exactly the same music? I have, to mark the first leg of the Les Mills Live global tour. 

Reebok Les Mills

If you've never heard of Les Mills, you've probably been in a class of theirs without even realising, down at your local gym.  They are the world's largest creators of choreographed exercise to music, group fitness classes; Spin class, Body Pump, GRIT Strength etc, Les Mills are responsible for.  They teamed with Reebok to get the planet fitter with a Les Mills global tour and yesterday was the first leg.

In the London ExCel Centre, I witnessed over 1000 people squatting, lunging and sweating in unison before my very eyes and it was magical. The day focused on being able to try out a variety of classes, from danced based classes like Sh' Bam, to yoga focused classes such as Body Balance, there really was something for everyone. All their classes release stress, improve confidence and gets you into amazing shape.

There's something really empowering about being amongst thousands of people working out as one and most importantly, having fun with it. The thing I enjoyed the most is that it's not about being the fastest, the strongest or the youngest but it's a community of people of all ages and abilities spurring one another on to keep fit. It also looks frikkin' amazing to see over 1000 people doing a chest press at the same time. Such rhythm!

TRX Workout

TRX/Suspension straps are my new favourite fitness accessory. Suitable to use indoors and outdoors, light enough to pop into your hand bag, suspension training is a great way to add variety and extra resistance to your workouts.

The straps allow you to use your entire body in a series of cardiovascular and resistance based workouts and are way more cost effective than a gym membership. I filmed a video on my YouTube channel to show my favourite full body TRX workout so that you can see and try for yourself.

Get strong, lean, firm abs and full body with three super simple TRX exercises. Designed for all fitness levels, these exercises provide the perfect punch of strength training for your entire body. 

Perform each exercise 10 times, resting for 30 seconds while you transition to the next movement. When you finish all three exercises, run through the sequence two more times for a 10 minute full body workout.
