Introducing the #fitin5 two-week challenge

posted on Friday, 12th July 2013 | find under Tamara, Fitness
As part of our exclusive Guest Instructor Programme, the founder of Hiitgirl Susan Dyson hosted an intensive workout at our Kings Road boutique on Thursday July 11. In order to involve all of you in the action even if you couldn’t attend the event, we collaborated with Hiitgirl to create the video #fitin5, where Susan leads a short but sweet workout session using Hiitgirl moves that deliver results.

This five-minute, high-intensity workout has been designed to quickly increase fitness levels with short and sharp bursts of exercise that continue to burn calories for up to 24 hours afterwards. The workout is based on natural movement patterns such as lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling and twisting. Combined with kickass intensity and energising music, the results come quickly.

Interested? Here's the challenge: watch the video and do the #fitin5 workout once a day, every day for fourteen days. We'd like you to share your results and where you work out for a chance to win some Sweaty Betty fit kit! 

To enter the competition, simply let us know where you’re working out – whether by Tweet, Facebook post, InstagramPinterest pin or comment below– with the hashtag #fitin5. The competition runs from Friday July 12 to Friday July 26.

The winner gets £150 in Sweaty Betty kit and an exclusive one-on-one session with Susan Dyson at her London-based studio (You must be able to make your own way to London. For American entrants, the award is $250).

At the Support Office and in boutiques, we're busy practising what we preach. We're doing the #fitin5 video every morning as part of the challenge, and sharing our PBs as we go along.

Are you up for Hiit?

I've been doing the #fitin5 at Anytime Fitness in West Lebanon, NH. My scores are slighly up and my execution is better on all exercises. Thanks for a routine I can accomplish.

If you've just come across the challenge, don't worry about the start date. Just commit to doing the five-minute workout once a day, every day for fourteen days. Don't forget to let us know where you do it and how you get on. Good luck!

I would like to participate in your competition! I have told my friends that Sweaty Betty is coming to the US, and we are awaiting your arrival with the same eager anticipation that the world awaits the Royal birth. Just trying to put into perspective how happy we are that you will be opening in the States.
