You know the feel­ing. You’ve gone away and sud­denly, some­how, on the flight home some evil wizard has shrunk all your trousers. Yes, a week quaffing piña co­ladas in a ham­mock or kick­ing back over truf­fle and gor­gonzola pizza in the mar­ket square can cause havoc with one’s waist­line. Hap­pily, you can now stream your favourite work­outs via your iPad any­where you are. You can even take your per­sonal trainer with you on hol­i­day! I know. It is maybe a lit­tle bit keen, but your bum will thank you for it. It’s al­ready one of the best group ex­er­cise classes in Lon­don, beloved by Poppy Delev­ingne and Suki Water­house. Now Bar­recorre has launched On­line Pri­vate­barre, in which one of their in­struc­tors gives you a one-on-one, bal­let­based work­out class over the web. The process couldn’t be eas­ier: go to the web­site, choose a date and fol­low di­rec­tions — and you’ll be signed into the most pre­cise and chal­leng­ing in­ter­net-based train­ing choice avail­able. Your in­struc­tor will watch to en­sure your form is per­fect, max­imis­ing the ef­fi­cacy of the work­out and mak­ing sure you avoid in­jury. £45 for 1 hour (bar­recore.co.uk/ pri­vate­barre) Founded by for­mer bal­leri­nas Flik Swan and Vic­to­ria Marr, Sleek Tech­nique streams a range of in­ter­ac­tive live group classes each day. Sign up and the class is de­liv­ered to your tablet, lap­top or smart­phone via con­fer­ence line: you can see the teacher and she can see you, and en­cour­age and cor­rect you as needed. Choose from sprint classes (30 min­utes), compact (45 min­utes) and clas­sic (55 min­utes) with a fo­cus such as Per­fect Pro Legs or Flex and Stretch. New for 2016 is a spe­cial core class, and check out the li­brary of on­line work­outs — which you can do at any time — such as Baby Sleek for moth­ers-to-be. From £7 per class (sleek­tech­nique.com) Need a bit of Zen in your life? Re­solved to med­i­tate and prac­tise yoga reg­u­larly — and you wouldn’t say no to a tailored detox? This is your site. Al­ready boast­ing a great range of yoga classes that can be streamed, this spring
