Steps or hills are perfect for short, intensive interval training using just your own body weight. These bursts of exercise give your body exactly what it needs - masses of strength and fitness - but don’t take much time. They are an effective form of basic training for those of you wanting to give your body the chance to get fit, but it is also provides the perfect complement to other forms of exercise such as running and all while you fill your lungs with fresh air.


Step Workout contains 45 functional exercises, where you start with a basic exercise that develops in three different ways to allow you to vary your training and achieve fantastic results, as well as suggestions for different 5-15 minute training programmes that you can follow.

She is a qualified personal trainer and dietary adviser, a health editor, a podcast presenter and holds online courses on health and food.
