Body Temple's Summer Workout Series: Session #5 with Aimee
We wrap up July's instalment of our weekly Summer Series with Aimee Sin's workout!
She is also the resident instructor for Temple HIIT so she knows a thing or two about quick, efficient cardio workouts. If you don't have the gliding disc that Aimee is using in the video, you can use either a frisbee (if outdoors), or a towel on smooth surface under your feet (if indoors).
Remember: maintain a store core while you workout to keep your balance. Also, you can tweak the intensity of the workout to your fitness level - as long as you're breathing hard at the end of it, that's mission accomplished.

Body Temple's Summer Workout Series: Session #3 with Jimmie
It’s mid-July! Wherever you’re reading this from, we hope you’re having a good time so far spending it with your loved ones.
This week, we’ve got Body Temple’s veteran fitness trainer, massage therapist, and life coach Jimmie to bring you through your home (or hotel) workout: she's got a great kettlebell workout that will take only 10 minutes but, if done right, will give you a great workout! Watch the video below to see how the moves are done.
You can substitute with dumbbells if needed.
Her word of advice: please do your prep work (rolling and stretching), and, during the workout, always have your core muscles engaged, maintain a neutral spine, and BREATHE.
Ready? Let's go!
Some interesting history on kettlebells:
• They have been found as long ago as Ancient Greece but have only been used to develop strength since the early 1700’s in Russia.
• Originally used as measuring weights for goods at the boat docks, the guys there literally started throwing their weight around!
• Dr. Vladislav Kraevsky recognised the benefits of kettlebells and introduced them as a training tool to the Russian public.
• However, only since the 1990’s have kettlebells exploded onto the international market.
To our friends and fans back here in sunny Singapore, don't forget that you can check out our website for our group fitness class timetable, or call us to enquire about starting your workout at 91008714 today!
