Those gym memberships taken out in January will most likely not have been put to use by the majority of us. With the motto “strong is the new skinny” being chanted everywhere we go and that summer holiday around the corner, now seems like a better time than ever to do more exercise and eat right to achieve the desired beach ready body!

James Haskell, professional rugby player and founder of the BodyFire brand shares his top tips on how to;

  • Stick to your fitness routine
  • Burn fat quick and get more energy
  • Work out on your lunch break
  • Get beach body ready

“Sometimes motivation and proof that the hard work we put in at the gym is actually paying off is all we need to stick to our exercise routines. Finding time to work out and eat healthily can be difficult whilst juggling a full time job and social life however, there are certain measures that can be taken to ensure you achieve the body you want.  

Supplements are a great way to give your body an extra boost and aid weight loss. There aren’t many supplements out there for women which is why I created Hella, a pre-trainer / fat burning supplement. Hella harnesses and combines the power of Green Tea, which is a natural fat burning product, alongside a host of B Vitamins, Guarana and Chocamine. Hella will help you lead a more energetic lifestyle, train harder and naturally increase metabolism and energy levels. Take either before food or exercise to achieve maximum results,” says James Haskell.

Lunch Break workouts:

If you’re lucky enough to work near a park, try and get outside for half an hour or so and go for a jog, not only will it clear your head, but it will raise the heart rate and burn calories. If you’re not fortunate enough to be get outside, which let’s face it, most of us aren’t, there are certain exercises you can complete at your desk in order to keep fit!

-Chair squat

Squat down in front of your chair without supporting yourself. Then lower slowly down so your bottom just touches the seat of the chair then come up again. Keeping the weight through your heels. Keep your head up.

3 × 20 reps is good with a break of 30 seconds between reps.

 - Chair or desk dips

Use either the edge or front of the chair to perform a dip. Make sure the chair is rigid and strong enough to undertake the exercise. Have your back facing the edge of the desk, arms bent.  Have your legs out in front of you and your weight going through your hands. You dip down and then push up. Feeling it in your triceps.

3× 10 reps with a break of 30 seconds between reps

 -Press ups

Either perform normal press-ups on front of your desk or if you feel adventurous, put your feet on the chair and hands on the floor. This makes things harder.

3 × 8-10 reps with a break of a minute between reps

- Lunges

 Again one for in front of the desk – normal lunges, keeping good form and body shape

3 ×10 each leg

 - Sit- ups

Crunches – Lay on the floor, flat on your back. Keeping hips pressed to the ground with knees bent and feet flat to the floor. Hands behind your head.

Raising-up your torso, curling the shoulders towards the pelvis, with the lower back remaining on the floor.

3×10 reps with a break of 30 seconds between reps

Quick Nutrition tips

 - Avoid all processed food such as white bread

- Avoid Breakfast cereals – they are full of sugar

- always try and eat a good breakfast – eggs and broccoli or any green vegetable with a protein shake but always with water NOT milk

- They say eat five pieces of fruit a day. In truth don’t worry too much about the fruit – always eat vegetables but without any sauces and with every meal.
