HEINZ AND ALETTÉ’S HOME WORKOUT
The couple’s personal trainer shares their daily exercise routine so you can do it too!
Cape Town personal trainer Marijke Cilliers devised a full-body, at-home programme for Heinz and Aletté consisting of both strength and cardiovascular moves. Here, she shares the programme, made up of five supersets with one strength movement (such as push-ups) and one cardio exercise (such as skipping) in each. Start by completing the programme once and work up to three circuits.
The weights and medicine ball you use will depend on what you feel comfortable with – but go heavier if it feels too easy, Marijke advises. In one exercise Aletté uses baby Reuben as a weight, which is an option for parents of young kids (be sure to hold on tight!). The rest periods are basic guidelines but if you feel you can push on to the next superset before the rest time is up, go ahead!
You will need:
❯ an exercise mat
❯ a medicine ball
❯ a skipping rope
❯ weights (or use the medicine
ball for the thrusters)
❯ a step or sturdy raised surface
