As a mum of two and working full time as a teacher – family balance is key with all my lifestyle parts. In regards to training and fitness – coming from a elite sports training level I had become stuck in a rut of doing the same cardio based activities however I sort to find a more effective and time efficient way to train.
My most effective workouts range from running, yoga, weights, HIIT high intensity interval training, walking, cycling and techniques sessions. I believe the most effective training comes with balance, quality not quantity.
I complete a walk every single day at 6am with the children and dog (on bikes, scooter, skates, walking or running depending on their moods 🙂 for 30 minutes before breakfast has made the most difference to my body.
But my favourite workout set would certainly be a set of
