The other thing is that crunches can hurt the lower back and neck when performed with bad form. That’s why I would love to share 6 different ab exercises with you. Before you start, make sure that you have no injuries. If you do, get a doctor’s clearing first. Let’s do this.

“You’re not leaving this room until you’ve figured out what you want”, I said to myself, just after declaring that this couldn’t go on. I had been stuck at a crossroad for months, fighting with being unable to figure out what I wanted to do next with my life and being certain that there was something more out there for me. If only I could figure out what that more was.

5 lessons I’ll take away from TWC-Ibiza by Elly Earls

With only three days left in Ibiza this year, I’ve been reflecting a lot about what I’ve learnt in the whirlwind five months that’s been my first summer on the island. Along with the obvious (don’t guzzle three large glasses of Sangria followed by two Mojitos, before downing five Hierbas shots, and expect not to make a fool of yourself at Pikes! Oh, and don’t get Satellite internet in Ibiza), there have also been some significantly more wholesome lessons, courtesy of the awesome team at The Workout Club Ibiza, that I’m really, really going to try and stick to, even when Virgil, Chris, Marisa and the gang aren’t around to keep me on the straight and narrow Continue reading…
