No Equipment Home Workouts

It’s been snowing across most of the country and it’s bitterly cold, so when we say we don’t want to go for a run, we mean that we don’t want to go for a run! I’m here to save the day with my short no equipment workouts that you can do from the comfort of your on home- no need to go outside whatsoever!

Simple & Effective TRX Exercises

There’s a new video up on my YouTube channel and it’s showing all of my fave TRX exercises.

Don’t know what TRX is? TRX is a suspension trainer that uses body weight to give you an all over workout. Unlike most resistance machines, body weight exercising requires engagement of the core (rather than isolating particular muscles), therefore TRX is great for core training, as well as everywhere else!

If you haven’t come across TRX before, it’s not exactly obvious to know how to use them. That’s why I’ve brought you my top exercises for the core, arms, legs and bum. Check them out- along with full teaching points- by clicking right here.

No Excuse Workouts: The Routines to Try Right Now!

We all know how difficult it can be to stick to your exercise plans. Things get in the way, time runs short or we’re too exhausted to even think about dropping into press ups. Well, all that can change with my series of No Excuse Workouts!

They’re designed with a busy lifestyle in mind and don’t get in the way of other commitments. Requiring absolutely no equipment whatsoever you can take these with you anywhere and everywhere. Perfect for your living room, outdoors or even your hotel suite and it doesn’t stop there… They’re short and effective with the 3 Minute Series being, well, only 3 minutes long meaning that you could even get up 3 minutes earlier than usual and have a quick session before work!

There’s 6 videos, so you can choose which area you want to focus on (or opt for full body if you want an all over blast) and they can all be amended accordingly to your own fitness level.

So when time’s running short, you’re a little tired or you’re simply trying to think of any excuse in the world not to exercise (but know that you really should), you know where to head…  No Excuses! 

P.S. You can also head to my Instagram @kirbyanne for my favourite lazy girl exercises. Effective but requiring minimal effort- you can even do them whilst watching TV! xx

How I Keep Fit!

I’m going to let you in on a secret. OK, so for anyone who knows me well it’s not actually that much of a secret… However, it is a damn good tip on how to get fit and fast! 

You’re looking to improve your fitness, maybe tone up a little, loose a few pounds? I bet the first thing that comes to mind for most people is running. It’s free, convenient and if stuck to, sure to tick all three of the above boxes. If it’s not running, it’s a class. Swimming? Home workout video? Sure, all of these can be effective but I prefer something a little less popular. Sprinting. 

For some reason, sprinting isn’t one that springs to mind for many when looking to get fit and it absolutely baffles me as to why not. Yes, it falls into the oh-so-popular running category, but it takes things to a whole new level…

It’s quick. So for anybody short of time (who isn’t nowadays?!) there’s no excuse. It will get you’re heart rate up, increase fitness, speed, agility. Help to shed weight. Is a full body toner and can be a sure fire way to build a killer bum! It’s an answer to your fitness goals and more. 

I may be bias. I grew up with an athletics background and speed was my speciality. But at the end of the day, if you’re not training for the Olympics or looking to start racing others anytime soon, it’s doesn’t actually matter how fast you are, as long as you run at your full pelt. Why not give it a try? Head to your local park and try sets of sprints at a comfortable distance for you. The recommended amount really depends upon your own fitness level but why not try two sets of three to start with and see how you get on. 

Fit, toned you, here you come! x

A little note to say…

I mentioned a couple of weeks back that I’ve recently become involved in a health business (post right here). I’m obsessed with fitness and nutrition so it seemed only right for me to help other people to improve their health and to meet their body/fitness goals, be that weight loss or gain, toning, muscle building or just general health (increased energy, healthier skin, hair and nails).

Well, one of my clients is my very own mum and I wanted to update you all with her weight loss progress because I am super proud of her! Join me in giving her a huge congratulations, as she managed to loose 11lbs in the FIRST WEEK of her new nutrition plan! Absolutely amazing!!

It might not be for you, but if you are interested in making any health changes or have any questions about my clients and their achievements then I’d love to hear from you! Contact me at tigeress.kirby@gmail.com. xx
