Gemma's workout routines always look incredible, mixing up weight training with cardio in her home gym that she shares with Gorka, though last week the mum-of-one shared she's battling with an injury.

Gemma and Gorka's daughter Mia can often be spotted in the home gym too, with Gemma telling her followers: "I love having Mia with me when I'm training and I love that she has an interest in it already."

Here's hoping little Mia inherits her mum's positive attitude to training too!
