Lower Impact HIIT Class
We are launching our new lower impact HIIT class!
Some of you will remember a similar class that used to run in our old studio in Priory Park. This class is ideal for those who want to improve their fitness and is a great way to aid weight loss, at the same time keeping the impact to joints low and focusing on good form and technique so as to avoid stress/injury to the body.
Please note this class will not be suitable for anyone with an acute pain problem or who has any significant cardio-respiratory issues.
There will be 7 live sessions via Zoom - the first will be during Easter week - Wednesday 7th April at 10.30am & will be a live fitness test (don't worry if you can't make it we can provide you with the recording & email you a fitness test form to fill out & do at a time that suits you.)
There will then be 5 weeks of classes running live via Zoom on a Monday at 10.15am. A recording of the class will be emailed out to all participants and you will be encouraged to try to repeat the class a few times during the remainder of the week.
Week 7 will then be a repeat fitness test!
The cost of the HIIT course will be £42.
If you wish to book your place or require any more information please contact us via phone or email.
Learn the essential principles of Pilates - concentration, centering, breathing, isolation, routine, precision, control and flowing movement. It is the place to start and can be the level to stay at if you have any underlying medical/orthopaedic problems. Spinal pain and other orthopaedic conditions can often be effectively managed through exercising at this level. Each exercise can be modified as required to an easier or more difficult version to allow for individual variation, injury, etc... Uses small equipment to assist/resist movement and provide variety to the classes.
Progression to Intermediate level is appropriate after a Beginners course when the basic principles have been learned and the particpant can maintain and control a neutral lower spine in the double table top position. This level of class will provide a bigger challenge to the abdominal and pelvic muscles. Small equipment is used to provide resistance to movement or facilitate more challenging exercises.
The Advanced class works towards higher level strength and conditioning, it is fast paced,
challenging & fun!
It is not suitable for anyone in the early stages of injury recovery or experiencing acute back pain.
Previous Pilates experience is essential before progressing to this class.
