Let’s get FIT!!

Summer is just around the corner and we’re all getting ready for the beach, our holidays and most importantly be swimsuit ready. Plus we’re also gearing up for the holiday season and I know most of us are trying to get fitter to enjoy the rest of the season.

Sometimes it can be difficult to stay disciplined and on track all the time. So we’re sharing some of the ways that got us motivated and most importantly kept us motivated.

1. Detox Water Bottle – oGorgeous Gym Boutique

We started the new year with our detox posts i.e. the juice cleanse and fruit infused water. This is one of the best and easiest ways to help with losing those extra kilos and all by just drinking fruit flavoured water! These super cute and colourful bottles with a motivational message helps hold your fruits and vegetables in a convenient infusing compartment perfect for making detox waters! As a bonus, the website has a different recipe for each bottle so whether you want to burn fat, deal with bloating or clear out skin – this becomes very handy!

2. Blogilates – 30 day challenges

Blogilates is one website that I really love. It’s founded by Cassey Ho, a fitness instructor who runs this blog and online community. She is extremely motivating and has great ways to help you lose weight and you can do these all at home. One thing I love about her blog is her monthly challenges, these have a different focus every month so whether you need to tone your arms, thighs, abs, etc. You’ll find it here! She also has seperate monthly workouts as well. So get a friend or colleague for the ‘Sleek Arms’ April challenge and get started – it’s super fun!

3. Jillian Michaels – 30 Day Shred

This was introduced to me a few years ago by a friend, and boy is this not for the faint hearted!! This 30 day shred has 3 different levels and is only about 20-25 mins each but is pretty hard core and intensive. You can do this at home and trust me will you see results!! She also has a ton of other workouts but this is a great way to get your fitness regime kick started. We’ve linked the video of level 1 to check out!

4. Fit Girl’s Guide

This is one of the most awesome online communities I’ve come across. It is the girly girl’s guide to getting fit! It’s so great because girls from all over the world jump in, possibly with their significant others and really encourage and help each other. They have come up with the perfect way to make getting fit, fun, encouraging, healthy and accessible!! They initially had only one plan, a 28 day jumpstart which is an e-book (costs USD 24.99) with a full meal and exercise plan. They now have introduced two new books. Their next challenge starts April 20th, the last challenge for the summer – perfect to kickstart the summer 🙂

5. Revolution Fitness

If this still isn’t enough to get you started and you still believe you need personal help to reach your fitness goals, I would highly recommend checking out Revolution Fitness. For those of you based in Dubai, they provide excellent personal trainers, who train anytime, anywhere and tailor make fun but super effective workouts. Whether you want to train at the gym, park, beach or even your home they can help you get those fitness goals!

If group classes are more your thing, they even run Insanity classes – this is a 30 minute max interval training bodyweight workout which gets you body changing results fast!! They run these once a week in South Ridge Park, Downtown Dubai. Go check it out the first class is free!

6. The Protein Bake Shop

With all this talk of getting fit and beach ready, we never got to the bit where we need to reward ourselves!! Who would imagine desserts to be healthy and that too filled with chocolate? And most importantly good for you too?!! For those of you in the U.A.E and India, try out these yummy treats from the Protein Bake Shop. They have a wide variety of treats from biscuits, to cakes and even mousse! I would recommend the chocolate stacks, chia & flax seed cake (which are my favourites), mint chocolate bark, etc!

  1. Nice roundup Alyssia! We are drinking LOTS of water, green tea for detox, bullet proof coffee for energy and working out to P90x, which is a more sane workout series than Insanity 🙂 We have also fully recommitted to our low carb, LCHF, Paleo lifestyle as well and feel invigorated for the road ahead.

    1. Thanks a bunch! We’re glad you liked it! I’ve tried to increase my intake of water with the fruit infused waters, I do the bullet proof coffee as well but sometimes use coconut oil instead of butter. I’m also sort of on the Paleo diet and have ordered a few cookbooks which I’m waiting to arrive. I haven’t tried insanity yet, not sure I am there yet! Since I need the extra help, I do use Revolution Fitness and thought it was great they have this as an add on! I look forward to exchanging recipes with you and look forward to reading more on your blog!
