Okay so it’s not exactly beachy weather today in England but I’m confident they’ll be lots of opportunities to head to the beach this Summer wherever you are in the world and I have your 5 minutes beach bum workout for you this week! I think the booty is the number one area I get asked to do exercises for, so here’s a killer butt toning routine you can add to your workout. Add it to my Beach Ready workout and you’ll be hitting the waves in no time…

Then there’s your tough mudders and adrenaline rush type challenges which definitely get me excited but are yet to be ticked off my list. Then I came across Every Day In May. EDIM is an inspiring charity event set up by Sally Pinnegar, Director of Fit Naturally Ltd with the challenge to cover 5 or 10k every day in May by any means- running, walking, swimming, cycling, skipping, dancing…
