Welcome back to our new four week workout challenge for your body and mind. How are you feeling after week one?

We hope you’re feeling motivated for week two!

For a series that will challenge your body while helping you to focus and organise your thoughts for the new year ahead then this challenge is one to follow.

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

Covid-19 has resulted in lockdowns and tiers, most recently lockdown 3.0, which has again 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.
