Welcome to day one of the Healthista 30 day Abs challenge with founder of hot gym Gymclass, Helle Hammonds – with a new 5 minute workout video every day in January

The Healthista challenge has returned and so has Helle Hammonds from GYMCLASS, with 30 days of five-minute abdominal workouts.

Helle has created a different workout for each day in January consisting of two strength moves and one fat burner, these are performed back to back and all movements last 30 seconds.

Each day provides beginner and advanced options to provide a challenge for everyone.

DAY ONE WORKOUT

  • Leg raises – Begin by lying on your back with straight legs raised in the air to create a 90-degree angle. Lower legs towards the floor and then return to beginning position. Repeat for 30 seconds.

 

  • Side reaches – Staying on your back, bend your legs with your arms to your sides. Begin this move by reaching one side to touch your heel and return, then repeating on the other side to reach your other heel. Repeat for 30 seconds.

 

  • Half burpees – This is a standard burpee without performing a press up. Standing straight lower yourself into an extended armed plank and then return back to your feet to perform a jump with arms raised into the air. Repeat for 30 seconds.

Repeat two more times.

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.
