I nearly squealed with joy this morning when I saw Zestfit’s post “I’m running a mummy circuit class this morning 10.30am... kids welcome!”
After getting back from a brilliant but over indulgent holiday on Monday night I knew I needed to get back into exercise fast and knew that Kat from Zestfit ALWAYS delivers a great sweat sesh! Even better that Lola could join in too!
There was an awesome circuit set up which included dumbbells, punch bag and boxing gloves, bunny hops (which sound cute but are in fact brutal!) trampolines, barbell for squats, cones for shuttle runs, wall slams and more!
Kat is an amazing trainer (I had personal training sessions with her last year so I know how fab she is!) She demonstrated to the kids what exercises they could do – Lola looked very impressed and then what the adults could then (I looked scared - lol!) and we got started.
It was such a great session, it was rounds of 30 seconds at a station then move onto something else. Then after a few times of doing that we met in the middle for some toning exercises. So we did some ab and core work and later some thigh and bum work. It was a good break from the circuits and I left feeling well worked out!
Lola and I absolutely loved it – it was a 50 mins / hour class which was perfect. I would definitely go again and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a workout without feeling guilty for leaving the kids and better still – the kids get a work out too! I feel like I'm being a good role model to Lola when I do things like this with her because she sees me working hard but enjoying exercise and I think that's great for her to see.
The session today took place at Pure Fitness which is situated at Darley Abbey Mills. Kat has loads of awesome classes which take place here and other venues too.
