Class descriptions

Body Blitz

This is an all over body workout that uses aerobic movements as well as barbell exercises to improve general fitness, toning, strength and endurance.

 

Boxercise 

An exercise class based on the training concepts boxers use to keep fit. Classes can take a variety of formats but a typical one may involve shadow-boxing, skipping, hitting pads, kicking punchbags, press-ups, shuttle-runs and sit-ups.

 

DanceFIT

 Dance fitness is a type of group exercise class that incorporates some or many forms of dance. It's an aerobic workout, divided into different tracks that provide peaks and troughs of intensity. The overall intensity of a class varies depending on the style you're doing.

 

 Flex Friday

After a long week of working and exercising the body can start to feel sore. This 45-minute class is for anyone who would like to increase their flexibility and range of motion. You will learn how to safely stretch your legs, hips, shoulders, and back while building the muscle and balance needed to use your flexibility.

 

Fusion Fit

An all over body workout combining basic kickboxing moves, work on the step box and barbell work. Designed to improve fitness, toning and endurance.

 

HIIT & Abs

High intensity cardio interval training involves intense bursts of exercise followed by a short, sometimes active recovery period. No equipment is used as this class is dependent on only body weight exercises.

 

Kettlebells

An all over body workout that helps to improve general fitness, strength and endurance by using a kettlebell weight. The kettlebells come in various different weights suitable for everyone.

 

LBT

Legs, bums and tums are the core focus of this class by using aerobic moves to strengthen and tone.

 

Pilates

Pilates is a form of exercise which concentrates on strengthening the body with an emphasis on core strength. This helps to improve general fitness and overall well-being. Similar to Yoga, Pilates concentrates on posture, balance and flexibility. In Pilates the chance of injury is much lower than with other more strenuous forms of exercise.

 

PiYo

A combination of the muscle-sculpting, core-firming benefits of Pilates with the strength and flexibility advantages of Yoga. And, we crank up the speed to deliver a true fat-burning, low-impact workout.

 

Spinning

A great way to build cardio endurance whilst burning calories on an indoor bike to music. Some of the Spinning classes include an ab workout at the end.

 

Yoga

Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The practice is centred on four integrated principles: breath, strength, integrity, and spirit.

 

Zumba
