SPLIT is an exercise programme that gives you the tools you need to achieve your fitness goals.

Getting the right balance of activities in life is essential for good mental and physical wellbeing. What this balance includes will vary from person to person. But most people would agree that it should include some work, some play, some downtime and some physical activity.

Focusing on three main workouts, SPLIT stands for Strength, Performance, and Interval Training; balanced in the middle by Life

The free 12- and 13-week SPLIT programmes include strength training to improve muscle tone and definition and interval training to increase cardiovascular fitness. More advice, focused on improving your performance and reaching your individual goals, can be found on the SPLIT blog, while individual workouts for different areas of your body – including legs, glutes, back and shoulders – can be found in the workouts section.

About Josie Gurney-Read

Having started her career as a journalist and editor at The Telegraph, Josie qualified as a Level 3 Personal Trainer in 2017 following years of interest in health, wellbeing and personal development. Following her qualification, she began developing advice features and workout programmes.

She launched SPLIT in order to share this information, and now creates online programmes focused on building muscle and getting stronger. She believes in maintaining balance in life, which is why one of the fundamental elements of SPLIT is finding a fitness regime that suits you.

A healthy lifestyle should be something everyone aims to achieve, but exercise and nutrition should never impact happiness and mental wellbeing.

She hopes that the SPLIT programme will give gym-goers the confidence they need to discover what works for them, and the belief that they can achieve results.

Josie is a YMCA accredited Level 3 Personal Trainer and a member of the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMPSA).
