And here are Cassie’s exercise tips
  • Wear your gym clothes so you feel motivated
  • Use your backyard or balcony to workout so you get some fresh air and Vitamin D
  • Use empty milk bottles or tinned food as hand weights when doing lunges and squats
  • Play your favourite motivating music while you workout
  • Always stretch before and after each workout. This helps warm up your muscles and also elongates them assisting with muscle tone and definition
  • Invest in a pair of ankle weights to wear around the house or when out and about walking
  • Drink a glass of orange juice prior to your workout as this gives your body a natural sugar hit and boosts your energy to get you through the workout
  • Keep your body hydrated with water throughout the day and ensure when working out you rehydrate with water
