30 Day Abs Challenge – Day two


Welcome to day two of the Healthista 30 day Abs challenge with founder of hot gym Gymclass, Helle Hammonds

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 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.


  • In and outs – Start with your bum sat on the floor and hands either side of you and behind your back on the floor to help your balance. Bend your legs so that your knees are in the air and feet off the ground with your body in a v-shape, from here you will begin the move by extending your legs out and lowering your torso towards the floor, then bringing your legs back in to your chest with your torso returning to the original v-shape. Repeat for 30 seconds.


  • Plank pike – Start in a plank position, raising your hips up high to create a pike. Here you will pivot your hips down one side close to the ground, then returning the hips back up and repeating on the other side. Repeat for 30 seconds.


  • Star jumps – Standing up right begin to jump while widening the legs and arms to create a star shape. 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.
