So figure skating season is officially over, which means I needed to find something to keep myself busy with for the next 6 months. And I guess I found my challenge in the Bikini Body Guide by Kayla Itsines. I’ve been doing the BBG for almost one month now and I absolutely love it! It’s intensive, challenging and I really see and feel the difference already!

Normally I choose to go to the gym in the morning before work and I love it! This works so well for me that I wanted to share my top 10 reasons to workout in the morning with you!

1. The gym is yours! Space, everywhere! Nobody checking you while you’re doing your exercises and no need to wait for any workout gear… empty squat rack… do I need to say more? 😉

2. Your own music on the speakers! At the gym that I go to, you’re allowed to put your own music on speakers as long as there are no group sessions. This makes me do my workouts at 110%. Music keeps ya going babe! 😉 Just ask the PT’s/receptionist at your gym very kindly and maybe next time, you’ll be working out to your own tunes! ☺

3. You get out of the gym and you see people heading to work and you already did your workout. Trust me, this will make you feel awesome! It makes you even feel more badass than before! While others were sleeping, you already treated your body with a great workout!

    redens enough , but I have to get out of bed at 5 o’clock so it’s not feasible for me at the moment, but when I sit in school I did too .
    Works well and I could spend the whole day a lot better mood and got too concentrate a lot better on the day tasks. My most importend reason!!

      Too bad it’s impossible for you to workout in the morning because of your working schedule, but any workout is a good one! Always remember that 🙂

    Yeah, I absolutely love BBG as well…
    When you train in the morning do you only do the BBG schedule or also some other things af the 4×7 minutes?

    • Lotta

      Hi Kirsten! I usually do about 20-30 minutes of warming up & figure skating exercises (mainly jumps & speed ladder), after that I do the BBG and after that I do at least 30 minutes of stretching. Because I want to maintain my flexibility, stretching is really important for me! Great that you also like the BBG! Good luck!Xx

    Do you workout in Helsinki? I think I recognise the gym. If it is in Helsinki, do you have any suggestions for an affordable and nice gym? I am going to be there in the summer and I would love to continue my workouts during my stay :).

      Oh now I see… It is Train More in The Hague! I was also considering that one for after summer. Do you like it?

      • Lotta

        Hi Anne! It’s Train More in The Hague indeed and I like it a lot! They have lots of space and several kinds of workout gear (machines, but also TRX and boxing equipement). I totally can recommend this gym! 🙂
