Update : My BBG workout schedule

Hey lovelies! As most of you know, I’m a big fan of switching things up to create as much opportunity for change and growth as possible and to mentally keep things fresh and interesting.  That being said, I’m not about to abandon my BBG in favour of something new because ….well… BBG just works and…

Vlog: Where I workout

Last week one of my lovely instagram followers asked me if I could show you where I workout?  How much space I have and what my set-up is? I loved this idea and truthfully was totally thrilled and flattered that someone wanted to see a little bit more behind the scenes stuff, rather than just…

Transformations, Abs and Bodies after Babies. Lets catch up.

Follow me on Instagram @activelyrees for daily tips on how to get the most out of working out at home. It wasn’t until one of my readers wrote to me and asked me how long l had been doing BBG for, that I realised it’s been a while now since I updated my blog with my…

How to be Fit and Healthy on Holiday (part 1)

The way it was before Before I found fitness, before BBG…  I would book a holiday and 6 weeks before I had to go, I Would embark on an extreme diet and exercise regime – eating nothing but salads and apples or skipping meals all together. I would drink cups of tea and live on…

My Never Quit Home HIIT

I don’t have a treadmill. I don’t even have access to a treadmill.  I could do sprints outdoors but timing this around my baby is difficult and living in the UK with its unpredictable rainy weather makes outdoor HIIT less than preferable. The BBG program introduces HIIT (high intensity interval training) in to your workout…

June Goals

Hello June I can’t believe we are already half way through the year! May flew by in the blink of an eye thanks to The BodyPower Expo and my trip away with James and Moo. I feel like i set off on my travels at the beginning of May and I arrived home to find…

What to do when it’s not working.

We’ve all been there at some point.  There is nothing more upsetting and frustrating when you are putting in the work everyday and you don’t see results.  It could be a plateau after a few months of working out or it could even be that right from the get go nothing you do seems to…

Tuck jump mini challenge

Hey lovelies! I’ve set my self a new mini challenge this week.  TUCK JUMPS I’m pretty bad at these in general.   Being tall, long limbed, quite gangly and lanky, when I perform a tuck jump I genuinely look like someone tossed a pan of spaghetti into the air. Anyway, I was reading up on…

How to feel motivated every day.

“Motivation may get you started but it takes discipline to keep you going.” While I do agree with quote above I am still constantly looking for motivation along the way and still can’t rely just on discipline alone. I find, in my journey that actually, one can’t exist without the other. The basic definition of…

BBG Wales Meetup April 2016

#SQUAD The best day ever and one of the greatest feelings.   Being part of an amazing  group of women who all came together one Sunday morning to meet, sweat and channel their inner badass girl boss. I hope you love the photographs as much as I do.  I think they really show what a…

Mini Modifications to Stop You from Quitting.

BBG is hard and there are no adequate words to describe how difficult I found BBG1 in particular. I was out of shape; I had no strength, no stamina and no discipline. Even towards the end of the 12 weeks getting through each 7 minute round was a struggle and quitting must have crossed my…
