Sarah Emblow heads up Barrecore in Alderley Edge and Hale. A beautiful space to sculpt your body and restore your mind, Barrecore classes offer incredibly fast results.

I want to shape for up my summer holiday, have I left it too late?

With a bit of focus, I promise you can feel great on holiday. Aim for 12 to 15k steps per day. Do four 50-60-minute classes per week (I see clients’ results increase by 50% when they change from 3 to 4 workouts per week) Cut out ALL sugar two weeks before your holiday, drink 3 litres of water per day, take fish oil, and you’ll be good to go! 

I tend to go to a class or the gym in the morning, what’s the best thing to eat beforehand?

I always advise a mixture of protein and healthy fats for breakfast – this fuels you up for the day. This morning, I had salmon, spinach and half an avocado, or you could try eating a handful of nuts before class or a couple of spoonfuls of almond butter – so you have some fats in your body to fuel you through your session – and then eat a proper protein-based breakfast after class.

What is your own personal exercise regime like? 

I try to do two to three Barrecore classes per week, as these keep me strong and are amazing for efficient fat burning. I walk for 45 minutes each day (about 5k) and once a week, I like to do a high-intensity outdoor bootcamp in the local park to clear my head and blast away any stresses from the week.
