Total body workout that brings fast results

 

P90X-45-55 mins:  The P90X workout system is an advanced training technique called Muscle Confusion, which accelerates the results process by constantly introducing new moves and routines so that your body never plateaus, and you never get bored! Whether you want to get lean, bulk up, or just plain get ripped, there’s an endless variety of ways we can mix and match the routines to keep you motivated in each and every workout!

Flexibility and core strength is fundamental.

PiYo-60 mins: This isn’t like standard Pilates and yoga classes that make you hold long, intense poses, or lead you through dozens of repetitive, microscopic core movements. PiYo speeds everything up—including your results—by introducing you to dynamic, flowing sequences that can burn serious calories at the same time as they lengthen and tone your muscles and increase your flexibility.

Core -30 mins: Intense core work. During this session you will work your entire core incorporating mat work and fit balls! This class is for all fitness levels and is a great way to fit  a quick but challenging workout into your busy day.

TRX  – 30 mins: Suspension training using your body’s own resistance. This class is as challenging as you make it with progressions and regressions depending on your own ability.

Yoga with Laura – Vinyasa is synchronising breath and movement to create a dynamic flow of yoga postures, suitable for beginners and intermediate. My classes can be as challenging as you make them, with options to make the poses a little more difficult through out the class. This makes the class available to those who have never tried yoga and those who are keen to further their practice. We keep the space light hearted so expect a few giggles as we breathe through balances and sweat through revolves, bring a friend and an open mind! 

See you on the mat.
