No Gym? No problem!

With a bit of imagination, it is possible to create a workout wherever you are and have some fun in the process. The majority of my workouts are either park based or home based. Come rain or shine I can keep fit, predominantly using just my own bodyweight and it’s FREEEEEEE!

If you open your mind and use what’s around you, the possibilities are endless. No excuses, just get outdoors and use your environment. Here are some ideas…

Bus stop tricep dips. Simple & effective. Try 3-4 sets of 10-12 reps

Nice little space to get some squats in off the main street – That’s right, I parked my toosh there – such a rebel! Try 4 sets of 15 reps

Not just a bike rack…Perfect for practicing your chin up game. If you’re not quite there yet, these racks are perfect for incline press ups too. Try 3 sets of 6-8 chin ups or 3 sets of 12 incline press ups

NB: This road was partially closed…I am not telling you to step into the road and do press ups (LOL) BUT, this is an anywhere, anytime kind of exercise. Try 3 – 4 sets of 15 reps

And don’t forget to have a good stretch when you’ve finished your workout

London has so many exciting spaces to train in, so get outdoors, explore and soon you’ll be viewing the city as your gym!

Happy training x
