Do you think that to improve your health and fitness levels you have to join a gym? Do you still believe that you have to exercise for half and hour or an hour each time to actually get results? Well if you answer yes to either of these questions, then you will find that now is the time to make a change!

Barrier 2: Lack of money. The equipment you use… is largely your own body, to start with, then you can use… water bottles (filled), rucksacks (containing books) anything you have around the house.. which again means no extra cash to be spent!

With this type of routine… you start to feel results fast.. because you are using your whole body to get moving… just a little bit at a time. You may not drop a dress size in the first week but you WILL start to feel yo
