2017 was the year for fitness fads taking over our Instagram. Hot yoga, squat challenges and workout waist-trainers… we have tried them all! Now we are in 2018, it's time to regroup, so we don't get carried away in the wrong direction.
Sometimes it is hard to find the trend that works best for you. Then you’re faced with integrating your newfound techniques into your weekly routine in a sustainable way. We’re already exhausted! Battling between staying in bed that extra hour or heading to the gym for a workout is constant. Whether you like to workout at home or head to one of many fitness centres, we may be able to help you tip the scales… in your favour.
With the rise of social media, we have turned to Instagram to provide us with the most up-to-date and creative ways to get our daily workouts in. Thousands have taken to the web offering a diverse and occasionally bizarre range of workout ideas to try. There are so many options, it would be hard not to find one you love.
We have rounded up some of our fave fitness guru’s to follow for your daily #fitspo. Whether you’re a busy businesswoman, a parent or both, we have you covered!
