We are very proud to introduce you to two kits that we have designed and developed for your well-being and fitness. You want to look after yourself and live healthily, but the hectic pace of your everyday life leaves you almost no time to go to the gym... So what if the fitness programme came to you? You want to set yourself some new challenges now the holidays are over, so how about having a go at ours?
The Balance & Pilates Kit will give you the opportunity to get into exercising at home and with no pressure. This isn't just a selection of accessories. It's a full training programme with a video - flexible, incremental and with the guidance of a professional coach.
Let's take a look together at what it involves, what types of exercise it suggests, using which accessories and how the sessions work. Something tells us you will accept the challenge...
The Balance & Pilates Kit is the perfect companion for women who want to work on their whole body, especially the abdominal belt and its deep muscles. These muscles support the spinal column and, as such, form the basis of the whole body's balance. For your figure and toning, they will guarantee good support, greater comfort for the back and joints and, consequently, a greater feeling of general well-being.
You are given four accessories in this well-being kit to help you with your training:
- Two exercise balls: these will help with toning and strengthening the body. They can also be part of your stretching session, to make you feel supple and relaxed.
- A resistance band: ideal for muscle-building exercises, for the upper and lower body.
- Two yoga blocks: these will help you compensate for a lack of suppleness and guarantee that the correct body posture is maintained.
You will also have access to a training programme consisting of 12 sessions of 20 minutes. Each of your sessions offers two levels of difficulty. In total, you have the chance to do 24 sessions, or 480 minutes of exercise!
Finally we share with you a 90-page well-being guide, all our best daily tips, well-being advice, recipes and lots of other things!
The exercise programme was developed by professional coach Séverine Jacinto. The aim is to provide you with the exercises you will need, while being aware of the realities of getting back into shape.
You will be guided throughout the programme: as well as exercises on video, there is relevant advice on the positions and postures to adopt to prevent injuries, etc.
Make sure you never forget to warm up or stretch.
A good warm-up involves raising the overall temperature of your body and using the major muscle groups and joints, as well as the muscles and tendons that will be used during the session. Start gently and gradually increase the intensity of your exertions.
The stretching phase after the training session is used to relax the areas that have been worked. It will help your muscles recover more easily. For an ideal result, only stretch when you are breathing out, and take your time to release while breathing in. Gradually increase the range of your stretches and release gently if you get a feeling of pain.
Now you know all about the kit we are offering, are you ready to try it out?
