I am very excited to be branching out into the realm of online memberships for exercises / workouts. I have worked really hard at creating this and it has taken me FOREVER! Those who know me, know that websites & anything technical like IT, are just not my friend!
With the help of Nicola, my website guru, I have managed to create an online membership, offering all types of exercises and workouts.
Basically, over the past 5 or 6 years I have been recording workouts – either for classes or my 1:1 clients – showing them the movement techniques or some quick workouts they can do on their own at home. So I wanted to actually put all these videos to better use – so anyone can do them in their own time.
Admittedly – some of you probably hate doing home workouts and need to ‘go to’ a class. However, if this is you – just read a bit more about what sort of workouts I have in my membership.
Here is more information for you about it….
How long do I have to sign up for?
I have created 2 types of memberships. Monthly and weekly. Those doing the monthly will benefit more as I will be adding to/changing workouts each month. There are 64 videos uploaded to the membership – all types & lengths!
You have the option of joining for a month and paying monthly – which is obviously going to be cheaper than those who want it for a week. It is £25 per month and it will come out of your account monthly until you cancel it. It is very easy to sign up and also to cancel.
I created a weekly membership as in the holidays I often get asked for workouts for something that can be done whilst away or if someone is away for work. This membership is £10 a week. Again you can sign up or cancel whenever you like.
Types of workouts
Whilst setting the membership up, I asked for feedback from my classes and those who were my ‘guinea pigs’ who tested the membership. I wanted to make sure I was offering something for everyone.
Ok, so here are the different categories I have and a brief bit of info for you:
One of the most important elements of exercise is about HOW you use the muscles effectively. Therefore, how to do exercises correctly to prevent injury is up there at the start of the options. I will be adding to this each month and will ask members to request a move so I can add to it each month.
How to breath properly whilst exercising, for pelvic health
Anyone can sign up to my membership, but my focus is on women and therefore the importance of preventing pelvic floor dysfunction.
Unfortunately, as a woman and someone who WILL go through the menopause, you need to be aware of looking after your pelvic floor. The more you know about it and how you can prevent anything like a prolapse, the better off you will be.
So I offer some informative videos on how to breath properly and how to do exercises using the breathwork effectively.
Mobilisers, releases, warm ups & cool downs
This section offers a number of videos to help those who are very tight or stiff. There are videos to help to get you moving in all different planes (directions) and for specific tight/niggles like glutes or the back.
These videos offer different length sessions. Some are from my classes – recordings I have made for my classes. They are generally full body workouts which will get your heart rate up.
These videos offer workouts for different body parts or whole body workouts. Again each session varies timewise, but if you are new to strength training, these videos will be a nice introduction. They are not for those wanting to do proper body building – I am NOT a strength and conditioning coach, but these videos will offer resistance exercises to help tone you.
HIIT & Short Workouts – 10 – 30 minute
These sessions are ideal if you need something to do quickly. They can be done anywhere and will make you realise you don’t need hours to exercise. A quick workout is really beneficial. The videos vary between whole body workouts, quick strength or cardio or HIIT.
Cardio & Strength Classes
It may seem repetitive, but these videos consist of both some strength AND cardio sessions. Many of these videos have been done for my classes and range from 30 – 50 minutes.
Glutes & Core
Always a must!! Some of these videos are examples of how to wake the glutes up or who want to strengthen all the different glute muscles. Some are for the abdominals – again all muscles. However, again, my focus is always to make sure you build from within 1st so I do advise watching the breathing video 1st.
Post Natal / Post Injury
I wanted to make sure I offer easier videos for newer mums or ANYONE coming back from injury wanting to start back more carefully. Again, it is important for women to understand that in the post natal stage or after an injury or operation, the tissues are more susceptible and need to be gradually built up.
I hope you like the idea of having everything you need in one place. Maybe you want to sign up for a week and see what you think of the membership or maybe you know you want access to different types of exercises and want more time to try something different & want the monthly membership? Here is the welcome video.
Please get in touch if you have any questions about it.
