Get Fit With Your Mum This Mothers Day!
Take your workout enjoyment to the next level by teaming up with the woman you love most in the world! Taking part in an exercise session with your mum, or daughter, is the perfect way to boost the fun factor and have a giggle while you get fit. Plus, a little healthy competition will always push you that bit further too.
Here are our favourite workouts to get you and your mum started:
If the main focus of your mother & daughter workout is having fun, it’s time to pump up the volume and get your groove on! Dance is an incredible way to get in shape while expressing yourself through movement – you’ll hardly notice what a workout you’re getting, but you’ll feel fantastic afterwards.
Dance is excellent for core strength development (far superior to hundreds of crunches!) and is also great for improving coordination and providing aerobics benefits – you’ll be burning calories and increasing your fitness levels.
We recommend Ibiza Dance with Lindsay Jay.
If you’re looking for a workout which will leave you both feeling empowered, combat is the way to go. This style of fitness session will supercharge your endurance levels and help you get rid of any pent up tension too.
The moves in combat workouts require a significant amount of force and speed, so you’ll be pushing your muscles a lot – and feeling the power of your body like never before.
Combat is a great way to burn calories and increase agility too. And you may find your interest peaked in a variety of martial arts from which the movements are inspired.
We recommend Combat and Cardio by Pierre Pozzuto
For those who want a more traditional and structured workout in which to really push yourself – try an aerobics session from the comfort of home. For maximum impact, take both of your fitness abilities into account and pick a session which will really challenge you.
Aerobics workouts are probably what springs to mind if you picture working out at the gym. They’re fast-paced, sweat-inducing, and great for your heart. Your body will be pushed to the limit. So having someone you love right by your side will be a great motivator to keep going. You may well need to cheer each other on!
If mother & daughter fitness sounds enjoyable but you’d rather spend time together unwinding rather than getting your adrenaline going, yoga is a workout of a different sort and just as beneficial to your health. Centuries old, the practice of yoga involves adopting different poses and using controlled breathing to relax and strengthen both your body and mind. Hatha yoga is ideal for beginners, and has been proven to help frequent participants recover from stress more rapidly.
Other benefits of yoga include: improved posture and increased flexibility.
We recommend Ibiza Chill Yoga with Lindsay Jay.
