Charlotte Crosby’s 3 Minute Belly Blitz

Charlotte Crosby 3 Minute Belly Blitz

Unfortunately due to starting a new job in a new location I have lost my easy access to the gym (it was literally opposite Debenhams) so I have had to come up with another way to keep up my exercise, and with the limited time I now have as well a workout DVD seemed like the best option, and so I bought Charlotte Crosby’s 3 Minute Belly Blitz.
Weighted Training Exercise Gloves

I am a big fan of Geordie Shore and I follow a number of the cast on Snapchat so I was well aware that Charlotte had released a workout DVD as she regularly snaps herself working out to it. I know that a lot of people say that celebrities pile on the weight just to do a workout DVD and make money off it, I have always thought regardless of their reasons if it gives you the result you want then what’s the problem. I have to admit my drinking and eating habits are not far off that of the Geordie Shore cast during the time they are filming and I don’t see them changing any time soon. I have a poor diet and I drink alcohol most weekends, so I felt drawn to her DVD out of all the choices.

The DVD features trainer Richard Callender, who you may recognise from The Biggest Loser UK, and weight loss expert David Souter. The workout comprises of a warm up, 12 3 minute routines, a cool down and an extra 10 minutes of “extra abs” work for the hardcore. I wouldn’t recommend doing all 12 routines in one go as the DVD is quite intense, although David does show you a beginners version of moves throughout. Even Charlotte herself says “Start with just one 3 minute round and build up to all 12” and as an added bonus there are a selection of recipes on the DVD to help you make a healthy eating plan.

Every time you workout it’s imperative that you complete the warm up and cool down, and then work through as many routines as you feel comfortable with, push yourself but don’t overdo it and end up injured. I have tried this twice now, the first time I completed two routines and the second time I lasted through three. The routines alternate between cardio and resistance and I have to admit that both times I was sweating and could definitely feel the burn. As much as I miss the gym I am happy with my choice of DVD and I don’t feel like I am completely missing out anymore. I lost a dress size last year but over the last few months I have put on half a stone so I am counting on you Charlotte to sort me out with the exercise and I’ll attempt something with the food side of life.

In the DVD they wear weighted gloves so I have ordered myself a pair as I found some of the moves difficult holding weights, and of course I had to find myself a pink pair. If you want to invest I bought mine on ebay, and you have the option of each glove having 0.5kg or 1kg and they come in 5 different colours. I think these will be a great investment for any workout session and I can’t wait for them to arrive so I can give them a try.

Have you ever bought a workout DVD, and how did you find it? Do you have suggestions for a unhealthy eater who doesn’t particularly like anything healthy, I’m talking I don’t like vegetables and yes I have tried them. Any help welcome!

  1. I’ve never heard of weighted gloves! They sound interesting. I actually really enjoy workout DVDs – much more convenient than going all the way to the gym.

  2. I got this dvd but haven’t opened it – oooops! I enjoyed Vickys dvd too. If recommend that x

  3. Oh I love the idea of the weighted gloves, makes any workout that bit more affective x

  4. Life as Mum says:

    I’ve not heard or seen those gloves before. I was wanting to buy this DVD before but wasn’t quite sure if I would stick to it

  5. Wow that transformation is incredible!! I really need to look more into this! Also what’s your snapchat! We should be snapchat friends! Mine is – candicenikeia

  6. Lol I don’t blame you some veggies can be icky and that is coming from someone who is a vegetarian haha! OOh hope the workout is good, I love Char she is so funny xx

  7. Wow she looks great what a transformation. The gloves sound great.

  8. I’ll admit to never having watched Geordie Shore but from what I have seen of Charlotte she really seems to have her head screwed on! Workout DVDs are brilliant for people who struggle to find the time (or motivation) to get to the gym.

    I have to admit I’ve not heard of weight loss gloves before, they do sound like they could be useful though. x

  10. Liz Mays says:

    I can definitely see those gloves helping. It’s a nice way to add resistance without reducing mobility too much.

  11. Aww Charlotte actually lives very close to me! Great to see you got her DVD, so many people rave about it xxx

  12. Elizabeth says:

    I think home exercise programs are a lot better than gyms. You can fit exercise into your own schedule instead of relying on their opening hours.

  13. I have 3 work out dvds. A boxacise one, that is fantastic! Jade goody dance one and a Jillian Michael’s one, which has some great kettle bells workouts and really gets me feeling the burn.

  14. nicol says:

    ive got a few weighted gloves myself and they’re great. i have heard great things about her dvd too

  15. Rachel says:

    I love her transformation, so am looking forward to seeing how you get on with this x

  16. Linda Hobbis says:

    I must admit I far prefer to exercise to dvds at home rather than hike to the gym and I love the idea of weighted gloves. I have a set of handweights at the moment. You haven’t told us whether all that exercise worked though…

  17. Her transformation is amazing so I am definitely interested in this.

  18. Agata says:

    I’ve never bought a workout DVD but I own and use quite a few workouts on Xbox or Wii. Perfect solution if you have no time to pop into a gym.

  19. Hannah says:

    I have been wanting to try this for ages! I might have to order it x

  20. I think because her transformation has been so impressive, its something that people can “trust”, so if you put the effort in you can do it too!

  21. I don’t really watch any workout DVD’s since I tend to go to the Gym, but I do have weighted gloves to add some extra strength when I am doing weights. These look pretty cool love the color variations they have.

    Thanks for sharing

    Leslie xoxo

    I’ve never heard of weighted gloves before but it sounds like a great idea to make your workout a bit more effective. A friend of mine saw some really good results with this DVD so maybe I should borrow it!

    Fruit is always a good way to go! It’s healthy and fresh! Other than that, make sure you aren’t putting too much food on your plate! Portion size is very important – it’s something I always struggle with! I haven’t actually bought a work out dvd before but I’ve used apps which do a similar thing and they do seem to work if you keep up with it! Good luck 😀
