I travel a lot. Consequently, I can’t remember the last time i was in the same place for longer than 3 months!
The lifestyle i have chosen requires me to maintain a good amount of health & fitness, due to the high level of physical activity i endure day-to-day.
I can’t carry a gym around with me in my pocket, and there are definitely no fitness centres anywhere close to the remote places i work. Therefore, i have had to research and discover new ways to train and motivate myself (without the help of an instructor) to keep my body strong, athletic, and healthy.
Ahhh, the skipping rope. I love to skip myself thin (big smile). Its a great way to burn calories whilst strengthening the upper and lower body. Unlike a treadmill, a skipping rope can fit into your suitcase, and if done properly its a lower-impact activity than jogging. I don’t know about you guys, but my joints like to give me grief.
I already have enough clothes, bikinis, and shoes weighing down my suitcase, the last thing i need is to be carry around 5kg dunbbells. Soooo, think innovative! Grab a brick (or 2), fill a 2 litre bottle full of sand, or do as i do and snag a big piece of coral from the beach. I love to have that extra bit of weight when im squatting. No one wants a flat bootay!
Its not easy to motivate yourself day in and day out to maintain that bod you’ve been working so hard for. We all need a little encouragement, which is why i choose to follow a workout plan i believe in, written by a woman who inspires me; Kayla Itsines and her Bikini Body Guide. This woman is badass, and her guide is my bible. With her huge following on Instagram and other social media you don’t have to be present at her bootcamps to feel the love, just go online to see what workouts the ‘Kayla Community’ are doing today and join the action. An online mentor… you can’t get more convenient than that #kaylasarmy Amen
