We offer a great range of classes with early morning, daytime and evening classes so that you have options to choose from, irrespective of work and/or family commitments. We have not graded our classes as in reality, it doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or experienced, you can ‘work’ the class your way ie. do less repetitions, add or remove weights, don’t add too much resistance. The key is to increase difficulty as you get fitter. Our trainers will happily give you best advice based on your current fitness levels and will provide you with alternatives if you have any injuries which need to be ‘worked around’.
Spinning is a superb high energy cardio workout – perhaps offering the best fat burn possible in a 45-60 minute session. The class is cycling based, using fixed wheel bikes. After a brief warm up our trainers take you through a series of hill climbs, sprints and ‘team’ events. The brakes are used to introduce resistance which is how we simulate a ‘hill’. The classes are great fun, with team time trials (interval training) and competitive sprints. You choose the resistance which means that even as a beginner you can enjoy this class on your own terms. If you are more experienced, increase the resistance and push your fitness to new levels – your thighs and lungs will burn. The music is always high energy and motivates you to the finish line.
The room is split into ‘stations’ where a series of different exercises are laid out. The circuit is designed to work all major muscle groups plus get your heart rate up for maximum fat burn. The exercises don’t require any specific training but are challenging, from sit ups to squats with weights, burpees and sprints. The challenge here is to try to improve the reps you can achieve ie. increase the number of each exercise you can do in a 45 second interval. The classes are very popular with members buddying up to encourage each other to work harder. A perfect blend of resistance training, body weight exercise and cardio intervals, circuits has something for everyone.
Legs, bums & tums
These classes are great – targeting abs, thighs and backside. These are tough classes, with our instructors Denise and Neil making sure that you will struggle to walk afterwards (in a good way).
This class is run by Arran Shiell our competitive boxer. It is fun but tough with Arran passing on some of his fight training and techniques. The fitness comes from boxing training, blending skipping, shadow boxing and body weight exercises to provide a full body work out. Arran also does 121 pad work with the class ensuring that you get a great workout and an adrenalin buzz too.
Jazzercise is a great mix of dance and aerobics – a fresh twist on standard aerobics including elements of dance, resistance training, pilates, yoga and kickboxing. Burn up to 600 calories in a 60 minute session which includes the latest sounds, muscle toning and stretching.
Our Zumba classes are terrific – high energy aerobics to latinamericanmusic includingrumba, salsa and hip hop. Our instructors mix chart sounds into the class to keep the party atmosphere going and add their own moves to ensure that you work your core whilst burning fat. No matter how tired you are will leave you feeling fantastic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKHsvI37DFo&feature=player_detailpage
TurboKick is similar to Body Combat. Nadia our instructor mixes her own moves into this high intensity martial arts style class with high kicks, punching and squats designed to increase muscle tone and give you a great cardio workout.
This is a terrific all body workout using lighter weight kettlebells to tone your muscles. The lighter weight is important as you will be doing a series of exercises without stopping, multiple times. Multiple reps work tones muscles giving you definition and not bulk. This is a great alternative to using standard weights/machines and is a tough workout.
The good news is that our bootcamps are not conducted in a muddy field – they are held in the gym. The great news about our bootcamps is that our instructors mix up your workout – some mornings you may get a circuit, on other mornings spin, weights, battling ropes. The one thing we will guarantee is that you get a fantastic workout.
