“During these workouts, I hope to make exercise fun and exciting, whilst simultaneously working on exercising our upper body muscles, helping to keep us fit and active. You do not need any specialised equipment to take part in these exercises, all the props used in each video will be readily available in every household."
Achieving a high-quality workout at home can be very challenging, especially when you don’t have any specialist equipment. But that doesn't stop Ella as she always has an alternative. This might mean grabbing a broom from under the stairs, some tins from the kitchen or even a bike inner tube from the shed!
