Zest fitness expert and personal trainer Jane Wake devised this workout to help our summer body challenge candidate Karen Gower in her bid to drop a dress size and wear skinny jeans with confidence.

Jane says, 'Karen needs to follow a whole-body training regime. Under my plan, we'll meet once a week in the park for a run and cross training, doing exercises that keep her heart rate up and maximise tone. Attending my Pilates will help achieve a lean, toned body and tum, and she will need to run on her own two or three times a week too.
'Stick to the plan, and Karen will definitely have a bikini body to be proud of.'
Trainer's tip: Adopt a can-do attitude, it's the first step to getting shape.
These moves all use a resistance band – you can get one for as little as £5 (www.fitness-mad.com).
