NEW! Active Circuits Class

What is circuits?

Also known as 'Interval/cross training' a circuit training class is where the participant performs a number of themed and times exercises in succession. These are known as 'stations'.

Each station will vary the exercise type and will include bodyweight exercises, free weights and cardio work.

The key component of a circuit class is that it raises the heart rate during the class and keeps it slightly elevated for the next 36hrs. So, the body is forced to burn calories effectively long after the class!

A good vibe and an upbeat atmosphere can be expected during the class to keep you motivated!

You can expect the following results and health benefits from a typical circuit training class:

  • Weight Loss/Fat Burning
  • Muscle Toning/Definition
  • Cardiac/Muscle Endurance
  • Blood/Oxygen Ratio Increased
  • Improved Fitness/Stamina levels
  • Decreased Body fat
  • Healthy Lean Muscle
  • Deep/Neglected Muscles Targeted (core)
  • Better Stability/Co-ordination Obtained
  • A higher Metabolic rate achieved
  • App. 600+ Calories Burned
