Just because we’re all in self-isolation, doesn’t mean we’re ignoring the fact it’s workout Wednesday. Health and fitness coach Helle Hammonds is here with three sweat-inducing workouts that you can do in just 30 minutes

So it’s official – after affecting thousands, the coronavirus has now caused the UK to go into ‘lockdown’ for at least the next three weeks.

That means we aren’t allowed to leave our houses more than once a day to exercise or we could face a fine – there goes our plan to jog around the block every other hour just to get out of the house.

Now more than ever we are all in need of some truly effective home workouts that not only get our heart rate up, but workouts that leave us sweaty and ever so slightly sore the next day.

Want a challenge? The Healthista 30 day home workout challenge starts here

Healthista have enlisted special guest, Helle Hammonds a fitness and health coach, to deliver sweat-inducing home workouts that really work.

These workouts are designed and delivered by Helle Hammonds and are time-efficient high intensity that yields results.
