Mira’s session 26 June 2020

Led by Mira, this is a 50-minute whole-body workout that will benefit your mobility, stability and strength.

Mira takes you through a short efficient warm-up to prepare your body for the main workout. Mobility and strength are the focus of today’s sessions. The main workout is split into two circuits, each consisting of six exercises. The first circuit combines aerobic exercises for better mobility with core stability movements. The second circuit is for mobility and upper-lower body muscle strength.

The session ends with a stretching routine for improved range of movement.

    A great workout Mira! I loved the variety and different levels of challenge. Thank you very much and I look forward to the next one!

    Happy to hear this Sue, it is wonderful to know that you have been enjoying the workout. The next one is for whole body toning up through simple strength exercises that are switched up a level for efficiency thanks to a mixed speed training approach. Hope you would like that one.
    Kind regards 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
