As always I love trying out new workouts and when I heard about Sweaty Betty’s Body by Simone workouts I was really excited and had to book myself on a class in-store at my local store London, Soho.

I was delighted to learnt that Maria Eleftheriou, Soho store ambassador was taking the classes. As a dancer and Barrecore instructor, she was the prefect to led us through the workout.

The Body by Simone is a 45 mins full body workout, featuring a warm-up, arms, abs, cardio, lower body and a cool down. All you need is a mat and hand weights.

Maria demonstrated all the drills and led us through the entire workout. Starting us off with some warm-up to get the heart rate up.

The 4 elements consisted of various drills of 3 sets with 8 reps. These included dance moves, squats, ballet moves, boxing punches, high kicks, jump ropes, 1.5kg weights; biceps curls, high-rep body weight sequences, planks, mountain climbers, lunges, forward & backward jumps, hamstring curls etc.

This is a great full body workout, working your abs, arms, gluts and lower body. Love the combination of different drills, many of which I do not not practice very often like boxing punches, high kicks and the ballet like arms movements.
