UrbanMummy FIT!

Posted by

No doubt, we’d all love to wake-up beach body ready this summer, but the reality is usually far from it. Finding the time to head over to your local gym can be tough, as just being a mummy is exhausting enough, without adding a 30-minute run on the treadmill to your day.

Home workouts are a great alternative to keeping fit, for those of us who don’t have enough time in the day, or simply cannot leave the babies at home. Working out at home is easy, and it can be incorporated into your daily routine (honest)! You don’t need to set aside an hour, just 10 minutes every day or even when you get a few minutes to yourself (when your little one is sleeping J ) you could target 50 squats and 50 sit ups, before you get that all important catch up nap.

We understand the struggle, and have compiled some of our favourite home workout videos that can easily be accessed from the comfort of your living room without investing in an unused gym membership!

Here is a quick 5-minute workout, sure to get your abs, legs and shoulders burning. The workout itself consists of five moves, to be performed for 50-seconds with a 10-second rest in between.

The ‘Anywhere Body’ routine is perfect if you’ve got a little bit more time. This 10-minute workout video features 10 exercises to be carried out for 60-seconds each. This workout is perfect as it targets all the major areas of the body (abs, legs, arms and shoulders).


Clean Eating Alice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6GRXX0eOjw

Clean Eating Alice has put together a quick workout that should take you no longer than 10-15 minutes. The routine targets the lower body area (legs, bums and tums) and consist of five exercises, with each one to be repeated 20 times (or 30-seconds for the plank).

The great thing about each of the routines is that they are extremely flexible, with easier and harder variations to best suit you. So what are you waiting for?
