This weekend I did my first ever bootcamp style exercise class with my boyfriend and his family! Despite the difference in our fitness levels, I managed to create a workout for everyone and today we are all feeling a little bit sore!

I enjoyed teaching Tashi’s Bootcamp so much that I am hoping to make it a regular workout, and I have decided to share it with you on my blog as I would love to hear your feedback. This workout doesn’t require any form of gym equipment so you can do it in your home, back garden or in the park with a group of friends.

Circuit training is a great way to build strength, burn fat and bring a bit of colour to your workouts! The weather is slowly improving so instead of slaving away in your sweaty gym, go and enjoy a workout in the greater outdoors.

This circuit consists of five rounds, which alternate between cardio and strength exercises. Each round includes different exercises and you complete each exercise for 30 seconds followed by 30 seconds of rest. Remember to work as hard as you can, for as long as you can.

Workout Time: Around 30 Minutes
Equipment required:
Stopwatch/ timer and a good playlist.
