“I’ve never been a very sporty person. I was overweight as a kid and was always picked last for PE. Luckily my metabolism kicked in when I got to about 15, and I lost all the excess weight, so I never turned to exercise really until I finished University. I joined a gym and actually stuck with it for about four years and loved how it made me feel! I had bags of energy and could basically eat whatever I wanted. I then had a bit of a breakdown and stopped exercising and really struggled to find the motivation to start again.

That was until my husband joined his friends HIIT classes, and my competitive side kicked in. I knew that lockdown meant that my physical activity would be next to none, and I couldn’t have my husband getting fit while I turned into a couch potato, so I decided to start doing 20mins of HIIT a day and I’m so glad I started! I’ve now up’d it to 25mins, 6 days a week, and I’m starting to really feel the benefits both physically and mentally! It’s definitely something I’ll carry on doing once life goes back to normal.”
