Muddy Stilettos Warwickshire awards 2018

As many of you may have known I was entered into the Muddy Stilettos Warwickshire Awards 2018 for 'best fitness instructor'. I did not expect to make the finals neither did I expect to win. 

On Saturday 19th May I received a phone call from Jane at Muddy Stilettos announcing I had won the 'best fitness instructor Warwickshire' category. I couldn't quite believe it when Jane told me. I received the phone call whilst watching my 15 month old in his swimming lesson with his daddy (this is how we roll on a Saturday morning). 

Unfortunately the award ceremony was a few days later which was when we had planned a family week away to Cornwall. However, I met Jane and Catherine a week later where they then presented me with the award. It was great to get to know them, understand their career journeys and network some more. I am excited to work with Catherine again in the future, watch the space.

Burn off those Christmas calories...

So you have all probably over indulged over Christmas and probably haven't done as much exercise as you would have liked. But it has been Christmas so ill let you off, its totally normal and  ok to indulge over the festive season. 

I have put together a mini abdominal circuit you can do when you are next at the gym/home. Watch my video below to see. I have given you 3 exercises to do back to back with 30 seconds rest between each set. Repeat the set a minimum of 3 times.  If you do not have access to a TRX thats totally ok too, instead stick to a normal abdominal crunch. Make sure your back is flat against the floor. With all of these exercises make sure your abs are 'turned on', really concentrate on engaging these muscles with every move. 

Give it a go and let me know what you think. 

Happy New Year xxx
