A functional approach to the more traditional Pilates. It still applies the main principles of Joseph Pilates but involves more functional movement for everyday life. Fitness Pilates will improve overall body strength with the main emphasis on back and core muscles.
It will help improve posture, create good habits, mobilise your joints and increase flexibility. Fitness Pilates is not remedial or therapeutic.
Monday at St. John's Community Centre
A ballet inspired class suitable for all levels of fitness incorporating exercises and techniques from a traditional classical ballet class, all performed to inspiring ballet music.
Regular participation in Balletfit will target many different parts of the body including the arms, legs, abdominal muscles, feet and ankles which will all be strengthened and toned. It will also improve posture, balance and stamina. The class can be adapted to suit individual needs.
No dance experience needed!
Wednesday at Highbury School
Circuit training is a fun fast paced class where we perform an exercise for around 45 seconds to a minute before moving onto the next exercise. There are around 6 to 8 stations (exercises) positioned around the hall and the instructor will time each station and then move everyone on at the same time. We alternate aerobic stations such as skipping & high knee’s with strength exercises such as squats and bicep curls for strength and body conditioning.
Once you have completed all exercises then we may start the “Circuit” again depending on the class format.
There are low and hi-impact options for each station which makes it a great class for most abilities.
Our class is 45 minutes long and includes a warm up and cool down with stretches. There are one or two “Mat” based exercises that we’ll all do together in a group so that we can ensure you are exercising safely and with good challenging technique.
