The power walk is the basis of our workout creating an aerobic session that burns fat. While the carefully selected exercises that we stop for along the way, maximise how brilliant body weight resistance training is for conditioning.
Stomp is also tough on Core, its essential for good posture and avoiding back issues so it is never left out. There are also lots of HIIT minutes to encourage extra calorie burning for those who want to work harder.
Stomp is right for everyone, you work at your level, whether back to fitness, post natal / op, marathon training or general weight loss. Bring your dog and let your STOMP Leader turn your group session into a bespoke workout.
Times are a bit different right now but that doesn't mean you can't get the benefits of a great group workout in the privacy of your home or garden (with or without your camera on, totally your choice!).
Jo has adapted her classic STOMP class to offer a fantastic all over body workout online using Zoom which will only take an hour of your time, with no travelling to factor in.
The session is for all levels of fitness and provides a mixture of cardiovascular and conditioning exercises, which will help to strengthen all muscle groups and burn fat. It’s regular and thorough and there is always a low impact option for those not wanting or able to jump around.
This is perfect if you're currently working from home and not sure how to get some daily exercise in. All you need is your trainers, a mat, a drink, a PC or tablet and some weights (or tins of food!)
Try it out, it's really addictive!
about JO MAHAN,
Founder of stomp
I changed my career from Nurse to Personal trainer in 2001 when I realised that my passion was in Health and Wellness and not so much, illness. I loved nursing but I also loved Fitness.
I am a firm believer that to lead a happy life, you need to be feeling tip top from within and that means exercising in the right way for you and eating to fuel that.
My mind is both sharper and calmer when I am feeling strong and fit.
My second passion is wildlife and conservation. I love to be outdoors, so my perfect workout is always an outdoor session. I have a gym to train clients in but it's pretty idyllic among The Surrey Hills and it acts as a base for a mixed workout that uses both indoor kit and the outdoor landscape.
The benefits of walking outdoors are constantly documented, and I know from my own experience that when I spend an hour training outside, either walking, running or cross training that whatever the weather, I feel 100% happier, more accomplished and motivated. It is a privilege to deliver fitness programmes to individuals and groups who remark on feeling the same.
So, that’s me in a nutshell. I am 41 years old, I have 2 kids, a husband, too many animals and I am blessed to live and work in the woods and next to water.
It keeps me both physically fit and mentally focused.
