With so many people now offering workouts online, I thought I would list a few of my favourite places to go if I need some inspiration. Many of these fitness experts provide workouts that are based on bodyweight exercises, requiring little or no equipment - so if you are unable to get to the gym, or off on your holidays, get yourself some great ideas right here!
Womens Health Magazine could be your one-stop-shop for all your workouts. Great ideas to give you the tools to build your own workouts - or use one of their ready-designed routines by the likes of Rachel Cosgrove.
Craig Ballantyne of Turbulence Training, has produced loads of youtube videos of wide ranging workouts from 12 minute workouts, bodyweight training, fat loss programs - you name it, he has taped it.
Freaky Fridays with Coach Dos Remedios and Frank Addelia are great to watch and very inspiring, using everything from Valslides, TRX, Kettlebells and Ropes.
Robertson Training Systems specialises in High Octane Corrective Exercise and Performance Enhancement, and has produced a series of instructional videos which are just great.
If you don't mind having her bum and boobs thrown in your face - then BodyRock.tv is the place for you. She is clearly selling her body to you (which is awesome I might add), once you get past that there are some great bodyweight workouts that will definitely challenge the average bear.
Over the following weeks, I will be posting downloadable workouts to print at home and take on the road. These will be workouts that I have designed and performed myself, maybe using my friends as guinea-pigs.
