For myself, I set Mondays for circuit trainings
Tuesdays for swimming
and Thursdays for a run

I was thrilled to know that there is a convenient location around my neighbourhood
and decided to go through Contours Express 29 minute Circuit Training

Why Circuit Training?

Many of you must be wondering why I have particularly mentioned circuit training and not just working out in the gym
For one, I have never found working out in the gym effective unless accompanied by a personal trainer
The lazy soul in me cuts myself the slack all the time and would stop the repetitive weights as long as I feel that my muscles are calling out in pain

Circuit training keeps my concentration level high throughout the session
with music and a variation of exercises that requires me to be always interested and looking forward to move into the next circuit
This way, it actually takes my mind off the tiredness that I’m experiencing

After completing the 29 minute workout,
the trainer also helped me through some abs exercises and ensure I did 60 crunches in 3 different variations
To wrap up, she walked me through a set of stretching positions to cool down
