  • Leg raise with Russian twist – Begin lying on the floor with your hands in front of your chest. Then raise your legs, keeping them together as you do. As you lower your legs, lift your body up straight. Make sure your legs don’t touch the ground, and bend them. Twist your body to one side, hold, and then twist to the other side. Repeat for 30 seconds.

 

  • Plank hip dips – Begin in a plank position, and then drop your hip to one side so you touch the floor. Lift, return to plank position, and drop your hip on the other side. Repeat for 30 seconds.

 

  • Half burpee with double squat – Begin stand up straight, and then drop your hands to the grounds so you are bent over. Step one leg back, and then bring the other foot back so you are in a plank position. Then bring one leg in, the other leg follows, and stand up. When you are standing again do two squats to complete the move. Repeat for 30 seconds.

Helle Hammonds GymClass Sweaty Thirty by Healthista bioHelle Hammonds, 38, founded London’s leading group fitness studio – GymClass in 2014. She wanted to create a gym that not only encouraged those intimidated by fitness to come in, but to also re-programme those who visited daily striving for that size six frame. Helle wanted to make it clear that exercising is about getting stronger, building leaner muscles, strengthening the core, interacting socially, and living a healthier and happier lifestyle. Helle spent a number of years working at renowned gyms across London, learning and gaining experience, before opening her first studio in Holland Park in 2014. Helle has personally designed the GymClass workout to deliver distinct results in building fitness faster, sculpting leaner muscles, melting stubborn fat and strengthening the core.
