Mira’s session 15 May 2020

Led by Mira, this is a 50-minute full-body, medium intensity workout that will benefit your cardiovascular endurance, functional strength, core stability and balance while also improving your range of movement.

Mira takes you through a dynamic warm-up to encourage blood flow in the main muscle groups. This is followed by two quick rounds of interval cardio work to stimulate mobility and coordination – it might provoke the dancer in you! The session continues with two rounds of strength circuit training based on intervals for all-round functional strength and toning up. It culminates with core training with balance elements for abdominal strength. The session ends with an efficient stretching routine.

We’d love to have your comments on the session and please don’t forget to subscribe to the FIT FOR GOOD YouTube Channel!

    A really fun workout! I enjoyed the dance element to the cardiovascular section and the fact that Mira varies the strength training every time. Alex always makes me smile too! Thank you Mira.

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR SESSION

FIT FOR GOOD online sessions are a convenient, enjoyable way of improving your fitness and helping to increase your strength, stability and balance.

To make the most of each session:

  • Position your computer, laptop, iPad or phone on a stable surface near where you will be working. If you can get YouTube on your television, that's another option
  • Check the floor where you are exercising is not slippery and that there is nothing you could trip over
  • Wear loose clothing and comfortable trainers or shoes
  • Keep a glass or bottle of water to hand to ensure you stay hydrated
  • Have a chair or other stable object to hold onto if necessary
  • Place your weights - whether they are actual dumbbells, cans of beans, bottles of water or whatever works for you - where you can easily reach them, but won't trip over them
  • Exercise within your comfort zone, pausing the video whenever you need to rest or hydrate
  • Play background music if it helps you relax
