Circuit training is a classic fitness class that has been around for decades, because it is such an effective and efficient way to get fit. It is also a great way to replicate the intermittent, high intensity fitness that is required for field sports such as rugby and football. With both resistance based exercise for strength and cardio exercises for fitness and general health, circuits classes truly are a complete workout.
Box Fit Classes
Another circuit based class but with boxing specific exercises and punch-combinations. A fantastic cardiovascular and core workout that also builds functional movement patterns and fitness that is transferable to other sports. Thanks to the punching involved, it is also reported to be one of the best classes for releasing tension and stress!
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
HIIT classes involve all-out bursts of exercise. The class is similar to circuit training but bouts of exercise are designed to be performed with more intensity and effort but for shorter periods of time. These bursts of intensive exercise last around 30 seconds and are interspersed with periods for recovery – usually between 10 and 20 seconds. HIIT is a great way to increase metabolism, fitness, endurance in a fun, quick and convenient fashion. Beginners are encouraged to work up slowly and gradually to all-out effort.
Providing a fantastic workout for core fitness, Pilates classes utilise exercises that were developed by pioneering fitness expert Joseph Pilates to improve wellbeing, posture, strength and balance.
