You can get ‘lockdown lean’ with this coached series of live home workouts

The coaches behind local fitness studio M3 Perform have launched a free online programme to keep you lean during lockdown

I don’t know about you, but a lot of us are piling on unwanted pounds during self-isolation. What’s worse is that lack of social interaction is sending us a bit stir crazy.

Salford’s city centre destination, New Bailey, has teamed up with local fitness studio, M3 Perform, to deliver a series of free, live home workouts to encourage the public to get ‘Lockdown Lean’.

New Bailey hosts a programme of events throughout the year; from the Manchester Duck Race, to the Bite Street Food market and lockdown isn’t stopping organisers from providing virtual wellness experiences for the community.

Usually based at The Ainscow boutique hotel, M3 Perform is a fitness studio that boasts impressive results from members.

“M3 Perform is a gym specifically built to get you amazing results, while creating a fun environment for you to enjoy your training and meet new people,” said Ben Cartwright from M3 Perform.

“COVID-19 has changed the way we’re working at the moment, but we’re really proud of the online programme we’ve created, Lockdown Lean. The results we’re seeing and the feedback we are getting from our members is great!”

Classes last 30 minutes and use bodyweight, so there’s no equipment required. For those who love the classes so much they want more, there’s an option to sign up to the Lockdown Lean program via the M3 Perform website.

Classes will be put out via Instagram live at designated times throughout April and May. All attendees need to do is head over to @New_Bailey on Instagram and click on the story icon. Classes can also be accessed on New Bailey’s Instagram story for 24 hours after they have gone live for those who can’t make the time slot.

With more lovely weather in store, it’s the perfect opportunity to get outside for your daily exercise. Head out to the garden and get ready to move.
