Fill the summer with joy of working out

Anything is better than nothing!
Get Camilla's best tips
Below Camilla gives her best tips on how you can easily squeeze in some physical activity during the holidays.
Always pack workout clothes with you when going on a trip
Remember that training does not have to be so advanced, find a short session using your own body weight when your already on the terrace or enjoying the sun in the garden
Put on workout clothes when you wake up, it makes the way to a workout a lot shorter
Start the day with a soft jog, nothing is like starting the day with some physical activity
Make exercising fun, make an appointment with your family, who can take the most burpees in 5 minutes?
Go on an "adventure" with the kids. Bring boxes to fill them up with treasures, before you know it you have collected thousands of steps
How many squats do you manage to take before the burgers are done on the grill?
Are you vacationing at the beach? Make yourself an appointment to walk 30 minutes on the beach or along the coastline during the day - amazing for both body and mind
Train together with friends
Imagine inviting a few friends to take a group workout class with you. Now imagine being able to do that with friends who are 5 or 500 kilometers away, and without meeting at a gym? With our newly launched feature "Train together", you can now invite your friends and family for your favorite workout. See each other and communicate via a two-way camera and experience the joy of working out with those you love!
