Welcome to day 29 of the NEW Healthista 30 day dumbbell workout challenge with founder of hot gym Gymclass, Helle Hammonds
Just booked your flights to whisk yourself away to a sandy beach but you’re in need of a quick fix solution to help burn fat and tone up before you whack on the suncream? Get ready to start working because Helle Hammonds has just turned up with 30 days of dumbbell workouts to target the whole body and the best bit is that you can do them at home.
The dumbbell workouts consist of three moves in three sets for you to sweat too. These workouts are short with no rest to boost a calorific deficit and aid toning. Helle recommends using 1-5kg dumbbells. Don’t have dumbbells at home? Fill up some water bottles with water.
If you want to advance these workouts you can simply add another set, repeat the whole workout and add weight to your dumbbells.

Helle 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.
