Just 15 minutes a day you say?

Yes just 15 minutes per day.

My lovely running friend Laura put me onto the Betty Rocker 30-day challenge a while back. As I was betrothed to my first love; kettlebells, it took me a while to actually click on the link and start day 1. But I’m so glad I did.

Betty’s daily workouts are 15 minutes. Yes 15 minutes. And I’m a little bit in love with her. She’s lean yet muscular, tattoo’d to the hilt, and usually wears a cool beanie whilst she works out.

Every day is different, focusing on different parts of the body with rest days of yoga and stretching every now and again. I hate yoga so I skip those. And guess what? Betty knows because every time I post on instagram that I’ve completed one of her daily challenges, she always replies. For someone with 145,000 followers, those words make me feel just a touch special, super motivated and like we’re actually friends. Which obviously we’re not, but a girl can dream can’t she?

Workouts include: Hot abs, cardio countdown, lower body, tabata, upper body, pilates booty and back attack and yoga. Active recovery days feature regularly to give your body a break which I think is eminently sensible and such a good idea.

As I write I’m up to day 15. It’s inspired because the workouts work you hard and fast, but you know that they’re only for a quarter of an hour. I can spend four times that lingering on FaceBook given half the chance. Betty’s introduced me to new moves, rekindled my love of tabata and has kept me exercising recently even in the midst of a dirty cold and even when I’ve been (a little) hungover!

Check her out here and take the plunge. Let me know how it goes and if you develop a bit of a crush too!

Betty Rocker’s strapline is

The Only Difference Between Who You Are and Who You Want to Be is What You DO.

and I couldn’t agree more.

P.S. Loads of people have asked me about the photo of me jumping high in the sky above. The honest answer is, I really can’t jump that high nor do I have mini trampolines in my trainers! It’s a total optical illusion based on how low down the phone was set on the road. But it looks impressive huh?!
