Here is what to expect from your Nurture Her Wellness sessions.
REFRESH body & mind
On day one we’ll focus on refreshing your body and mind with a movement session designed to reconnect you with your body and leave you feeling uplifted, with a combination of toning resistance band work and more challenging bodyweight strength sets, as well as a little mobility work, to kick off your Nurture Her wellness journey with a bang, without overdoing it right off the mark.
Today the magic word is ‘recharge’ and this workout is all about boosting your energy and flooding your body with feel-good endorphins. We’ll continue to work through toning sets using resistance bands, before picking things up with a no-run cardio set designed to lift your mood and leave you on a natural high!
Time to combine everything we’ve practiced over the past few days in a higher intensity session that combines activation and toning work with goal-based strength and cardio sets, designed to push your limits and boost your confidence, so you walk away with a sense of accomplishment, ready to slay your day.
RECLAIM personal power
Today’s workout has two purposes, to get you sweating and smiling as you watch your last beautiful Fijian sunrise, and to teach you how to create your own mini workouts, so you can continue your wellness journey back home! Empowering you to create your own sessions anytime, anywhere is one of the best gifts we can leave you with as you build your healthiest, happiest life culture. Feel free to bring your notebooks in case you want to scribble down a few strategies in between sets!
