I have been in a bit of a rut with my fitness lately. I mean, I have always been using a gym, I just haven’t been doing anything particularly interesting with my work outs. I had a usual thing of a spin class a few times a week and then more cardio in the week too. I wasn’t pushing myself to do weights, because I just didn’t feel prepared to write up a plan to follow. After receiving a subscription to Women’s Fitness, from magazine.co.uk through the post, I have stepped up my game and got back on it!
I loved that there are a variety of workouts available for you in the magazine. Being a personal trainer in a former life, I know all the things I need to be doing. I just was being lazy as writing up a plan to follow can take a lot of time. So having ready made programmes dropping through the letterbox is brilliant. The workouts seem tailored to all, as the moves aren’t super complex. But they don’t tell you how heavy the weights should be, so it can be suited to all levels.
With it being summer time, a few of the workouts are a bikini blast to get ready for your holiday. in the most recent issue there was a butt lifting workout, as well as other toning moves. It has felt good to be doing some weight training again. Nothing beats that day after muscle ache. Really!
Women’s Fitness also has a variety of recipes which is great. If you ask my husband, we rarely eat the same thing again and again, so I am always looking for new recipes. We have tried two of the recipes too; Strawberry Salad and an Mango Maca crispy treats. There are fitness buys and recommendations, so it is a brilliant magazine for all levels. There were interesting articles too, including all about the top Team GB females to watch for in the Olympics, as well as how swimming benefits you. As someone who becomes obsessed with the Olympics and has an interest in sport and fitness, I found the articles really informative and engaging.
It seems like I am going to like this subscription very much! I am looking forward to the next magazine being delivered. Have you ever considered getting a magazine subscription? Women’s Fitness costs £39.99 for a year’s subscription (13 magazines), or you can buy 3 issues for £3. So far I think it is total value for money. I like that it is just delivered straight to your door too.

Probably a good read but I hate the covers. They don’t look like strong fit women just typical bikini clad ‘get beach ready’ girls. I read it occasionally but feel strongly that the cover should be fitness role models or strong women exercising.
I completely agree with you on that – a woman with abs or an athlete would be much more inspirational for fitness x
I think I’d enjoy reading this but if be rubbish following the exercises… I need to do classes for that! The food looks amazing… Healthy and delicious! #TriedTested

Ooooh this looks fab, I definitely need some fit-spiration for my forthcoming holiday!! x
This looks like the sort of thing I would read whilst eating a bag of crisps. As mentioned above, I would like it much more if they featured real women and not just models. #TriedTested
