Paula Radcliffe leads the way in the fitness stakes
This is your chance to get as fit as Paula Radcliffe with the Academy!

This is the second aerobic workout which we have devised to increase your fitness level in the comfort of your back garden.


This is our second workout and is aimed at getting you fitter, stronger and should improve your performance at your favourite sport.

We have taken some top tips from Paula Radcliffe's training schedule to put together this fitness workout.

Paula has been in incredible form over the last year so it looks like it has helped get her in shape.

Now it's your turn.

The workout will take around 30 minutes to complete.

There is a four minute warm-up, followed by a seven base circuit and a four minute warm-down.

Equipment required for work out

  • Notepad
  • Stop watch
  • Two markers
  • Skipping rope
  • Step

    Warm-up

    It is important you do a proper warm-up to reduce the chances of suffering from injury.

    Spend 3-5 minutes doing a light jog around your garden. mixing your running up with high knees, heel flicks and punching the air with your hands.

    You should now be ready for the circuit - click on the button at the right hand side saying 'session 2' to get the workout underway.

    Goodluck!
