Class descriptions below:
Aerobic Body Tone
An intense muscle and cardio workout using a barbell. Each of the major muscle groups are worked in turn including chest, back, shoulders and abdominals. This ensures maximum calorie burn and toning as it hits every area of your body
Aqua Aerobics (Summer only)
A form of aerobic exercise performed in shallow water (swimming pool). While similar to land aerobics, water aerobics is cardiac training but with the component of water resistance and buoyancy. Although heart rate does not increase as much as in land-based aerobics, the heart is working just as hard and underwater exercise actually pumps more blood to the heart. Exercising in the water is not only aerobic, but also strength-training oriented due to the water resistance. Moving your body through the water creates a resistance that will activate muscle groups.
Beach Bootcamp – (Winter only – check for dates)
The perfect all round workout, including fat-burning, core conditioning, full body toning, stretching & lots more! Individual and team exercises – great atmosphere and great fun in the sun – on the beach and in the sea !
Dancercise A fun dance class to get fit to ! Similar moves to our Zumba class with great music
Hatha Yoga This authentic style of Yoga involves sets of physical postures and breathing techniques practiced more slowly with more static posture holds. Fantastic for relaxing the mind, building core strength, increasing flexibility and bone density
A cast iron weight shaped like a cannonball with a handle. Kettlebells offer a different kind of training using dynamic movements which target almost every aspect of fitness, endurance, strength, balance, agility and cardio endurance. The beauty of the Kettlebell is that it works many different muscle groups within a single workout. You take the workout at your own pace and (weight level) so it is perfect for any age and ability
LBT’s (Legs, Bums and Tums)
The Legs, Bums, and Tums areas are often considered the worst parts of the body when it comes to shifting unwanted fat. Our ‘Legs, Bums and Tums classes are a fun filled way to help tone those wobbly bits. These classes are particularly popular with women who are keen to improve their overall body shape
We also have an “advanced” class (LBTs +) for those who are either fitter or want to push themselves a bit more with these exercises
A mat-based Pilates class works the core muscle of the body, including the deeper muscles of the abdominals, back, shoulder blades and buttocks. The Pilates exercise stretches and strengthens your muscles in a non-impactful, controlled manner
Pump uses weighted bars to build strength and endurance. This class is designed to include lighter weights with additional repetitions to build muscle tone without bulking up. Each individual decides the amount of weight that is ideal for them. This class offers a terrific way to build muscle and increase bone mass
