I've recently become obsessed with Lucy Wyndham-Read's amazing easy to follow YouTube Health and Fitness YouTube Videos which really do make exercise and workout easy and accessibly for everyone!

So, I asked Lucy if I could Interview her for my Blog to share with you my New Favourite Workouts, New Favourite Health and Fitness Book and my New Favourite Fitness YouTuber!

#StyledbyCharlie Asks Lucy Wyndham-Read.

Q: As a personal trainer you obviously have to have a vast knowledge of not only fitness but health. What are your Top 3 Tips to being Healthy?

 A: Be a numbers girl and always and set Rules:
1. Workout 5 Times a Week
2. Spend 80% of the week eating clean
3. Be an '8 Glasses of Water' a Day Girl

 Q: Your Book '21 Day Love Your Body Plan' features so many easy ways to workout whatever your lifestyle. Which of your signature workouts is your favourite?

A: I love squats more than shoes!
For me even if I am super short of time I can squeeze in some squats as I know these help keep the booty lifted, but more than that it is a great way to keep your calorie burn fully charged all day.

 Q: After reading your book its clear you've lived a very full lifestyle including being in the army. What is the main thing you took from being in the army that has shaped who you are today?

A: The Army taught me that you can do anything you put your mind too! If you have the motivation, discipline and determination you can get what you want. So even though I don’t have a sergeant major shouting at me to get out of bed at 5:30am I will still set that alarm (maybe 6:30am though!) to jump out of bed and chase my dreams of Fitness and Motivation.
I have jumped many hurdles, with doors being slammed in my face, constant rejects, being ripped off and that is just on the business front as my personal life has been hard, but all these events taught me to toughen up and learn how to do everything yourself. I have learnt how to build my website, even down to coding. Learnt how edit videos and much more which has given me the ability to create my dream job which is writing the books (and now have I don’t have to knock on doors, the publishers are coming to me) and my YouTube Channel is growing from strength to strength.

Q: You have you YouTube Channel too! How long have you had a YouTube Channel and what have you why did you decide to take your talents to YouTube?

A: I started my Channel about 2 years ago and for me it was a great way to show my workouts and also give good advice on everything from how to find the right training shoes to 4 minute full coaching workouts. I wanted to create a Channel that woman can come to and find everything they need to lead a healthy lifestyle.

 Q: Your YouTube Channel features so many easily to follow tips to working out from solo workouts or working out with friends. Which is your favourite 10 Minute Workout for Solo/With Friends?
 A: My favourite workout is probably the 100 Rep Skinny Jean Workout - Less than 5 Minutes And You Can Do It Anywhere!

Remember to Subscribe to Lucy's Channel for FREE Workouts you can do anywhere.

 Q: I'm at work a lot of the week and want to make sure I'm using my body, working out as much as possible and keeping active. What kind of exercise regime would you recommend for someone like me that works 9 - 5?

A: I would recommend you do one of my 4 Minute Workouts first thing in the morning.
These help you burn calories off for the rest of the day, then when you get back from work do a 100 Rep Workout as then you are toning all over and this is all you need to do!
So the morning one is all about calorie burning then the afternoon one is all about toning, you can easily do these even with a 9- 5 job.

Plus you could try this 2 Minute Lower Body Workout of mine that you can do even at a desk!
The Easiest & Most Effective Thigh Workout:

Q: Theres a lot of health and diet tips out there dominating social media it can be hard to know which are truthful or which are just going social media crazy because they're paid for promotions by celebrities. Your Book '21 Day Love Your Body Plan' is a quick fix to feeling body confident, why does your quick fix work over others out there such as the Teatox's for example?

A: If you eat healthy clean foods and workout then you don’t need to ever spend a penny on such products. Which by the way if you read the small print with them all it states you have to do it alongside healthy eating and exercise (helloooooo!) this is what gets the results not the product! It makes me so cross as it comes down to what you eat and how much you move!
My book (Click here to Buy Lucy's 21 Day Love your Body Plan eBook) is all about showing how easy it is to eat clean food and how workouts can be short but still effective.

Q: I'm really, really enjoying reading your book and find it so easy to relate to the writing style and format without the fitness and exercise jargon that confuses so many of us.
What was important to you when writing this health and fitness book?

A: It has to be clear and for me I want my readers to be able to understand how the body works but not in a intensive and heavy text style. I want to make it simple and fun and then we absorb it more.
I love being creative and in this book my creative juices got flowing and could not stop!
But on a serious note the more we understand how body works are; the easier it becomes to work with it.

 Q: Your book features recipe tips too for getting a confident body in '21 Days' what is your idea of the perfect 'body loving' daily food menu? (Breakfast, Lunch, Snack, Dinner)

A: I love toast!
A: So my Breakfast is always toast and coming soon to my channel is a series of Healthy Breakfasts! 
Then my Snack is a banana with a few pecans (sometimes more than a few!!!)
Lunch is a quick favourite of mine is Tuna, Red Onion, Kidney Bean and Coriander Salad.
Dinner would be Courghetti Bolognese.
I love to swap traditional spaghetti pasta for courgette noodles.

Q: I'm quite body conscious and always worry about whether the exercise I am doing isn't helping the areas I want it to. Which of your YouTube Tutorial exercises would you recommend for Abs? For Arms? For Legs? And Booty?

A: Very soon on my Channel I will have some workouts for each area, so Watch This Space! then you can tone at home just as if I was training alongside you.

Q: If I had a spare 15 - 20 Minutes to fit in a special Lucy Wyndham-Read Quick Fit Routine and I wanted to focus on losing some quick calories as well as quickly toning my body what exercises would you recommend I could do in that time?

A: If you have 15 - 20 Minutes, you could do a Quick 10 Minute Power Walk then my 6 Minute Fat Burning Workout for your Butt, Thighs and Abs and this will tone you all over.
Watch Video here.

Q: I have just bought an Apple Watch and monitor my daily activity religiously on it from my minutes of exercise a day to my daily steps. I aim to do between 8,000 to 10,000 Steps a day.
Is that enough? Are then any other simple ways to keep in shape to easily adaptable to add to your daily routine?

 A: That is great to aim for 8- 10 Thousand! 10 thousand is roughly about 5 miles, so that will get some amazing results.

Q: I love going out for a Meal and trying to keep in shape but this can sometimes be a tricky balance especially if you work 5 - 6 Days a Week. As you have so much experience with Fitness and Health do you believe in the so called 'Cheat Day' where you're allowed that calorific Indian Takeaway and Naan?

A: Yes! We are all allowed a cheat day as I mentioned earlier it is about balance and the 80/20 Rule so for me once a week I have a big slab of Fruit of Nut Chocolate (and I mean as in the one in the purple shiny wrapper!!) So Yes! Go for the Naan and lets face it a curry without a Naan is a bit like a Workout without a Squat!

 Q: I often hear that it's best to have an 80-20% relationship between food and exercise. (80% Diet management and 20% exercise) What Food to Exercise ratio would you say you'd recommend to live by for maintaining a healthy and in shape lifestyle?

A: Food: Be good and eat clean 80% of the week.
Exercise: Between 4 – 5 times a week.

Q: You've been in the Army, you've written books, you've got a youtube channel and your personal train internet sensations such as Anna Saccone-Joly. Where with Lucy Wyndham-Read go next?

A: I have lots of new exciting projects lined up and another one is also helping promote a fun message to youngsters. Not like my Love Your Body eBook which is aimed at teenagers and woman, but another series which is for very young children on introducing them in a magical way to healthy eating and being active.
I have written 7 Children's Books in this series which you can View and Purchase here.

Q: Thank you so much for your time today Lucy with all your amazing tips and trick to feeling fabulous and body confident! I can't wait to start my '21 Day Love Your Body Plan' from your book (which can be purchased here).
Do you have any last minute tips for so many of us out there who struggle with finding the motivation to keep up a fitness routine and healthy lifestyle in our busy lives? 

Keep your workouts short (then you are likely to stick to them) and keep focused, keep eating clean healthy food and then you will keep seeing results!
