A New Year brings with it the whole New You trope, but there’s one element of fitness that really isn’t just for a New Year, and that’s strength.
Incase you missed my announcement on social media, I officially joined the Her Spirit coaching team in January 2022, to kick off their Couch2Kilos challenge.
Couch2Kilos is a free 6 week strength challenge designed to help women get stronger. With 3 different levels for the live sessions, there really is something for everyone.
As I’m writing this, we’re about half way through the 6 weeks, but it’s never too late to join in and the challenge will be happening again. But a couple weeks ago, myself, the other two coaches (Mel Young and Becks Oladele) for Couch2Kilos and Her Spirit Co-Founder Holly Woodford, got together with podcast host Louise Minchin to chat about the programme and what strength means to us.
It’s a great conversation around all the benefits of strength training and how it helps to build body confidence and feel more able to cope with daily life.
Listen To The Her Spirit Episode:
You can join me weekly for level two, which is for those who are fairly active (2-3 times per week) and have done some strength training at home or in the gym. You might have struggled with consistency and need to be motivated by others to keep you on track, so you’ll be in the right place for support.
“Listened to the HerSpirit podcast on my commute this morning. I love the podcast and especially loved the focus on strength…something I totally ignore but now feel motivated to try!”Charlotte (on instagram)
Minimal equipment is needed for level 2 – either some resistance bands or light dumbbells (1kg-5kg) or whatever you can dig out to use. So come and have a try!
