Did you see our last home workout series that helped many people through the first lockdown?

Covid-19 has resulted in lockdowns and tiers, which has meant gyms have had to close their doors. This has left people searching for other ways to get fit, and many have turned to home workouts.

That’s why Healthista has teamed up with a handful of fitness and wellbeing experts to help you with some home workout inspiration including personal trainers, yoga teachers and meditation experts.
