Its all about the heart this month. Looking after your heart with diet and exercise is one of the best things you can do for your body! By just doing a few minutes of high intensity workout a day can have a big impact on your heart as well as the health benefits of lowering your blood pressure and losing weight. Skipping is cheap and portable so you can take it anywhere! It can improve heart & lungs, stamina, flexibility, co-ordination, balance, rhythm and symmetry. It is both aerobic and anaerobic, it can be high impact and thus increasing bone density and toning thighs, glutes, hips and calves. It also uses both sides of the brain and body, so has benefits for your mental health also.The benefit is low impact on knees, hips and ankles and if done properly its a lower impact activity than jogging. More benefit on heart, lungs and muscles. It strengthens upper and lower body and burns alot of calories in a short space of time. Try not to skip on carpet, grass or concrete as you may injure your ankles, instead go for a mat or wood floor. The better you become at skipping the more economical you will be with your movements. The key is to jump low so that just enough space for the rope to pass under your feet, this means minimizing the movement in your arms and to make the pivotal point the wrist. By doing this the arms and shoulders are given a workout by just clenching the muscles in order to turn the wrists.
The Challenge #Skiptember
 
Get a skipping rope, if you don’t have one head over to Amazon and pick up a cheap skipping rope, leather is a better choice if you are willing to spend a bit more. Well worth the investment.
 Check your skipping target each day and get out and get your skips done, these don’t have to be done at the same time, you can do them in blocks of 10,20.50 or 100 or whatever you fancy, the key is to get them done. Follow us on Twitter & Facebook, we’ll keep you upto date on the days target and you can share your efforts with us

Our Bootcampers are great people, showing love for an injured Bootcamper who’s not able to get to sessions at the moment. It’s nice to feel loved.

3 years ago today, we incorporated Kiss Fitness (UK) Ltd with the mission of providing opportunities for you to enjoy fitness either in a group of like minded individuals or on a one to one or semi-private basis. We founded Kiss Fitness on the K.I.S.S acronym of Keep It Simple Stupid and whenever we feel things are getting too complicated we kick ourselves and remember K.I.S.S.

Our very first session was an outdoor circuits session in Stalbridge, Nikki worked at the school and was able to negotiate the use of the field, we bought some resistance bands, yes that was the some of our equipment inventory when we started, about 10 resistance bands! It might not have been the professional part on our first session but it certainly was personal and very simple. 

It’s fair to say we’ve come along way since then, we’ve enjoyed every minute and it’s all thanks to YOU, our customers & clients. We have many plans for the future including new services and expanding our reach. We get many ideas from our customers and we make some of these a reality, so please. keep providing us with feedback and we’ll keep coming up of ways to keep you fit, active, happy and having fun.

As a Birthday Gift to you we have a one day discount code for Personal Training, top up your sessions with 10% OFF, simply head over to our online store and use discount code: Birthday10 ends midnight tonight!
Thank you and we look forward to the next year which we are sure will be very exciting.

If It’s Raining, We’re Still Training

Lighter evenings and longer days give us more time to take in our beautiful surroundings and explore a little more. This month’s Kiss Fitness exercise challenge is going to help us be more active by walking more & taking more steps. Get outside and enjoy the longer days with our June step challenge.
Now, you might have guessed already but to take part in this challenge you’ll need a pedometer. The good news is they are quite cheap, so bag yourself a cheap pedometer, get stepping and join in with our challenge.
Head over to Amazon and search for a cheap Pedometer
Alternative go the whole nine yards with a Fitbit
The Challenge
Each day during June, we’ll be increasing the amount of steps we do slowly but surely from a low 2500 to a very active 12000 by the end of the month. Check the target each day and hit that goal, you’ll need to start finding more ways to be active suck as parking further away from your destination, walking when ever you can and taking the stairs. 
Check out our blog post on why counting steps is better than counting calories for further inspiration.
Target Guide
Download, print off and keep the guide handy, pin it too your fridge and check your step target for the day.
Follow us on facebook & twitter for daily updates and target reminders.
Total steps is 213400 which is roughly 10 miles, 10 miles of extra walking throughout the month! 
Go from sedentary to very active, our challenge starts in the sedentary range which most people will be able to achieve without much additional effort. The step targets increase at 150 extra steps each day for the first week, 200 for the 2nd week, 250 for the 3rd week, 500 on the 4th week and a 1000 jump on the 5th week.
By the end of the challenge you’ll be in the range where very active people are considered to be. So get that pedometer out and get stepping.
