Course outline

About this course.

Welcome to The BWI 14 day Mat Madness Challenge.

We have designed 14 days of classes for you.

This is absolutely perfect for anyone struggling with consistency and  habit building. I know if you’re on this page, you have huge desire to get stronger and fitter but discipline and motivation could be holding you back.

With Isabella and Olivia who are bursting with encouraging words and full of energy, you will have so much fun whilst getting strong.

Each day has a different focus such as abs, glutes and hamstrings, arms and back and many more! We will cover the whole body, including all the ballet muscles required for feeling strong.

With just 20 minutes a day the decision paralysis is taken away. Hit the play button and build those habits with us.

It’s time to get toned, strong, lean and motivated!

Let’s go.

 

 

 

Course breakdown.

 

Day 1 – Abs, Abs, Abs
20:00

An introduction with Isabella and Olivia followed by diving into some deep core abs!

You will need a yoga block as a prop in this class.Let’s go!

Day 2 – Abs, Abs, Abs
20:00

Yet again we are going to target the abs. This time Olivia is in charge and wow, some of these exercises get you. Let’s go team!

Day 3 – Back & Arms
20:00

It’s time for back and arms. In this video we will be targeting the upper back, lower back, and arm muscles. Perfect for toning and training for Arabesque. Your back will be on fire. You will need a pilates ring for a couple of the exercises. Let’s go!

Day 4 – Inner & Outer Thighs
20:00

In this Class Olivia will be working on our inner and outer thighs. Be prepared for the glutes to cry. Olivia knows how to bring that burn. Amazing exercises for stability of the hips and balance.

Day 5 – Cardio Blast
20:00

Cardio Blast Day! Get ready to sweat. Jog, squat, plank and jump with Isabella and Olivia in this stamina testing HIIT workout. This is designed to build strength and endurance as we get that heart beat up. Let’s go!

Day 6 – Glutes, Glutes, Glutes
20.00

Olivia takes us through our paces with this tough glute workout. Targeted exercises training all areas of the glute muscle, Working to fatigue.
Strong glutes are essential for dancers. Let’s go!

Day 7 – Turnout & Stretch
20.00

The last lesson of week 1, well done!
In this class we go a little lighter in the intensity and focus on the deep rotator muscles as well as stretching out the hips.
Deep rotator connection is subtle and hard to find which is why we have to go slow, and think deeply as we do the movements.
Take some deep breathes and let’s go!

Day 8 – Upper Back and Arms
20:00

Grab your dumbbells or wrist weights. Today we are working on the upper back and arms. An area that is often neglected by dancers that can lead to serious imbalance. Working on the upper back and arms will really help you feel much more in control and lighter in the body, stronger for pirouettes and better body control. Let’s go!

Day 9 – Glutes and Hamstrings
20:00

Get ready for that glute burn. In this class you will need the addition of a theraband. Go grab it. With the aid of the resistance band we will be creating deep connection with the glutes and hamstrings. Making you stronger like never before. Let’s go!

Day 10 – Hamstrings and Quads
20:00

With Olivia we will be challenging our hamstring connection and quads. Hitting the front and the backs of the legs. These muscles are very significant for not only explosive power. They are partly responsible for holding the legs high and aligned. Dancers are afraid of working the front of the legs but they are so important for strength and freedom of movement. Let’s go!

Day 11 – Legs, Legs, Legs
20:00

Your legs may be a little sore from day 10 but it’s time for more! We are working the legs to fatigue. There will also be some balance work involved in this class which will add a new level of stability and challenge. Let’s go!

Day 12 – Abs, Abs, Abs
20:00

We are fast approaching the end of our two weeks which means we finish as we started with some ab blasting exercises to challenge your core. Core is your powerhouse. It will give you the ultimate freedom of movement. Your core is of the upmost importance. Let’s go!

Day 13 – Abs, Abs, Abs
20:00

Your last intense workout of the two weeks. We are so proud of you and this is your final push. Get ready for the last abs challenge of the two weeks. Let’s go!

Day 14 – Mobility & Stretch
20:00

Wow!

Enjoy this last class.

We are so proud of you well done! This class is all about thinking how far you have come in just two weeks. Stretch it out and relax with us. Building habits is hard.

We hope you have enjoyed taking class with us, building consistency and setting habitual foundations for success going forwards. We feel good, we hope you do too.

Let’s stretch and unwind. Good work!

Meet your teacher.
