12 Days of Christmas Cumulative Workout – starts tomorrow

LGF_12 Days
Happy Friday Team!

The countdown to Christmas is well and truly on (YAY!) so starting tomorrow I’ll be posting a new mini workout each day. The workout is cumulative (just like the song), so by Day 12 – which also happens to be Christmas Eve – you’ll get a killer workout that’s sure to alleviate any pudding-associated guilt.

Advanced Workout 1

Advanced1

So we’re less than three weeks from Christmas, and – if you’re anything like me – that means you’re out a little more, drinking more, eating differently and just generally not in your usual routine. That’s ok though – you need to have a little fun in your life (or even a lot!), it just means you might need to work a little harder in the gym for the next couple of weeks to keep that balance.

From now until Christmas, I’m going to post an ‘advanced’ workout each Sunday night. That’s three workouts designed to challenge you, make you sweat and burn some of those pesky extra calories.

These workouts are not for beginners though, nope nope nope. So as always, consult your doctor if you’re unsure whether they are suitable for you.

Here’s number 1, give it a whirl and let me know what you think!

LGF 2015 Christmas Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again! The countdown to Santa is ON and if you’re anything like me you’re starting to panic. Giving presents is in my top five favourite things to do, but it’s also probably in my top five most stressful. And because I don’t want everyone to go through the same anxiety that I do (every.single.year) I’ve put together a gift guide for the active gal. You know, gals like you and I!

Leave this open on your desktop, email it to your friends, partner, parents, all of the above. Just trust me, the products inside all have my seal of approval.

Get Fit for Summer? Get Fit for Life Baby!

So, summer is approximate 75 hours away and – damn it – you’ve left your 2013/14 New Year’s resolution to ‘get fit’ a little late… again. [Read more…]

‘Good’ vs ‘Bad’ Food

Them feels.

Them feels.

As you are probably aware by now, I haven’t always had a particularly balanced relationship with food. In fact, for a number of years throughout my late teens and early 20s you could go so far as to say it was decidedly fucked up. You know, if you were into dropping the f-bomb at random (which I am).

Ruski’s Birthday Workout (but you can do it too!)

Ruski-Jess

Tomorrow is my lady-husband’s birthday. Well actually hopefully it’s today by the time you’re reading this. Either way, she is turning the ripe old age of 28. I remember being 28…. back then we had to walk 10 miles through the snow to get to school, with no shoes and only cow pats to keep our feet warm. Or maybe I’m getting confused with my dad’s ‘when I was a boy’ stories… [Read more…]

Death by Squat – the Workout Finisher

SQUAT FINISHER

So, you’re at the end of your workout and you’re not quite ready for it to be over. You crave the burn and live for the pain. You want to feel the lactic acid building, the sweat dripping in your eyes and your muscles crying out for relief.

I like your masochism.

Five Fit Minutes with… Cherida Forde

Cherida1

I feel like Cherida is exactly the kind of girl you’d want on your side if you found yourself in some kind of physical fight. She might be tiny, but the girl is fit, fast and STRONG. She’s be ducking and weaving and smashing out a few uppercuts before your enemy even knew what hit them. Literally. Plus, she’d fool them all with her sweet demeanour. And in unrelated but equally excellent news, she loves wine.  [Read more…]

Making Commitments

commitment

So I’ve had a pretty full-on few weeks.

I can’t believe it was only eight weeks ago that I was sitting in a local cafe with Ruski (my lady-husband) when we started discussing (again) the possibility of a Lazy Girl Fitness Bootcamp. I’d been toying with the idea on and off for a while, and by that stage a number of my friends had started encouraging me to put something concrete together. I finally made a commitment to myself to get it off the ground in 2014 and we started to set some goals and put a plan together on the back of a napkin, with a blunt pencil we borrowed from the waiter.
