October 2019, I decided to renew my gym membership. And instead of running, I started to do strength training. I had no idea what I was doing but was starting to see some results.
At the end of February this year, I decided to book a session with a personal trainer so I had more of a plan. A way to really gain muscle.
And then lockdown happened. No more gym. And home work-outs don’t really do it for me. I did my Yoga Teacher Training during lockdown to keep me busy, but other than that, my health and fitness kind of took a backseat.
I went back in August, but now we’ve just had a second national lockdown, so I’m pretty much back at square one. Again. But I have gotten into a nice little routine that I will (hopefully) be able to keep up for a while.
I prefer getting my work-outs done first thing in the morning – and since I start work at 7 am during the week (doing school runs), I get up at 5am.

These days are mostly rest days, but if I feel like it, I’ll do a few short ab work-outs (I love MadFIT’s videos!)
I do switch things up a bit in the gym, but these are the exercises that I do most!
And that is my current fitness routine. How often do you go to the gym?
