You might have seen on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter (yes, I know, I love social media…) that I run a weekly class called BodyCon at Love Your body Health Hub in Hackney, East London. So what exactly is it?
Well, BodyCon stands for ‘Body Conditioning’ so the format of the class is roughly 30 minutes of cardio work (eg. tabata, hiit, circuits, AMRAPs etc.) followed by 30 minutes of free-weight work focusing on a different body area each week. The idea is that if you come every week you will work your way round the body each month and build some muscle.
The cardio section is designed to keep your heart-rate jumping up and down and burn some fat while the weight section will increase your muscle mass and therefore increase your metabolism, allowing you to burn more calories even when you’re resting. The EPOC (Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption) effect keeps your metabolism boosted for at least 24 hours after the class helping you to burn even more calories.
So all in all it’s a great class for whatever your goal might be. Also, you’ll get a brilliant smug feeling for working so hard early in the morning!
BodyCon also stands for ‘Body Confidence’ which is a big part of my approach to fitness so I like to make sure that the class is accessible for everyone, no matter what their level of fitness. It’s a great laugh, I get super sweaty doing the class with everyone and I love teaching it!
Come and join me every Wednesday 7am-8am at Love Your Body Health Hub, I promise you won’t regret it… You can book in here
