Complementary Fitness Homework

A quick warm up section and a couple of stretches to get you moving again and ready for our summer classes. Sorry, please ignore the background noise and the long look at the floor at the end!! I’ve not mastered video editing yet as you can tell, oops.

How did you get on last week doing your ‘homework’? ‘Coz you’ll miss our Wed & Fri 9.30am classes this week, go to my channel and pick 2 or 3 different exercise videos to do at home this week and let me know how you get on.

Something to think about:
Never settle for less than you deserve.

Life doesn’t get easier, you just get stronger! *

‘Drinking water at the correct time maximizes it’s effectiveness on the human body’ –
Drinking 2 glasses of water in the morning helps activate internal organs. Drinking 1 glass of water before a meal will help in digestion. Drinking 1 glass of water before taking a shower helps prevent high blood pressure. Drinking a glass of water before bed helps prevent strokes or heart attack. *
