Another week has passed and I didn't exercise. Not once. After being trapped inside with bad weather and doing Christmas craft all day, I certainly felt stir crazy and was itching to exercise. But I didn't. The excuses I used this week, in hindsight, were so weak. I can't even blame this beautiful blue eyed baby. But as I reflect on the weekend, I realise my cup is so empty (well, my wine glass is full) and you can't pour from an empty cup. So.

As I returned to exercise this week, I realised trying to fit in around my busy lifestyle is not going to be easy. I have 3 young children, a business and we have 40 head of cattle living on 100 acres 30 minutes from town.
The only way I’m going to be able to achieve my fitness goals is by doing at-home workouts (using an Aktivaal fitness box of course!). And even I as a personal trainer some times find it hard to come up with exercises to do. So I thought I’d pull together some of my favourite apps that I’ve used in the past that might help inspire you too. Let me know how you go!Read More
