First things first. Decide what kind of lazy girl you are: Do you want to minimise your time in the gym or avoid working up a sweat? Short, intense workouts and long, slow cardio are both great fat burners. The same can’t be said for 10 minutes on the cross-trainer watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Soz.
2. You don’thave to break a sweat.
The small isometric moves in barre and Pilates classes will seriously tax your muscles without disturbing your blow-dry. Bonus: If you don’t need to take a shower, you can get changed and outta the gym in double-quick time.
3. The best workouts kill two birds with one stone.
A challenging yoga style (such as Vinyasa flow) will make you stronger as well as saner. Those chaturangas the teacher keeps dropping in? They’re tricep press-ups in disguise. Sneaky.
4.Always have a goal. Preferably one that scares you a bit.
Run or cycle home from work and you get a free workout and lots of fresh air AND it probably won’t take much longer than public transport.
5.Give yourself a gold star.
Reward yourself for meeting targets so you’ve got something to look forward to when you hit that weight goal or PB. How ‘bout some slick new gym kit?
