It’s very exciting to be involved in this workout plan with The Telegraph for the third year running…and I can’t wait to see what you think of this year’s booklet. Planning the workouts and doing the shoots with Jonathan was great, and I really hope you all have as much fun trying the workouts as we did making them.
We tried to create an exercise programme that is easy to follow and doesn’t need any expensive equipment. All you need is your body and the will to have fun and get active. You can do all the exercises at home and they’re appropriate for everyone. Even if you’ve never exercised before the guide takes you through a sensible all-round fitness programme that helps improve flexibility, strength and posture…and burns some serious calories. If you’re a real fitness freak feel free to push yourself a bit harder, just remember to always get quality sleep and schedule appropriate recovery time.
Each exercise is broken down with written instructions and illustrations to help you get fitter, leaner and slimmer with as little fuss as possible. There’s loads of info on choosing the right foods to boost energy levels, improve sleep and perform better, whether it’s at the gym or in the office. If you’re looking for a fitness challenge for 2015, check out my guide to running your first 5K, and Jonathan’s guide to having a go at your first cycle sportive. Don’t miss it – out this weekend, free with The Telegraph on Saturday and Sunday. Let me know how you get on!
