The best transatlantic workouts Stateside and in the UK

Happy Friday!

I hope you are all well and have had a great week.

Whilst I was wandering around the internet recently, I came across something that could change the way that I exercise.  There are yoga and fitness classes that I can join in in the USA....  You can join live to some of them and other ones you can view and use for a small fee .  I have listed some of them below for you to have a look at.  For me it would have to be the Yoga ones.  Bootcamp is not really for me.

There are also some classes in the UK that you can do and they are listed below.  The wonderful thing about this is that you can do this in the comfort of your own home.  Think Jane Fonda exercise video....

Have a great weekend and see you all next week.
