Motivating, Engaging and Results Based Workouts

Group Exercise & Classes

Group exercise classes are a great way to increase your fitness whilst having fun and meeting new people! Research has proven that when you exercise and workout in a group environment, you work harder, have more fun and stay engaged longer, creating greater exercise habits and promoting a stronger relationship with staying healthy.

Our instructors are motivating and enthusiastic about delivering exciting and rewarding classes. We offer classes including Les Mills Body Pump & Body Balance, Studio Cycling, Yoga and Pilates and H.I.I.T based conditioning classes.

Classes are mostly included in your membership, alternatively you can choose a PAYG option per class at £7 per class.

A breakdown of each class is listed to find out more and match yourself to the right workout.

Studio Cycling

A great calorie buring workout suited to all abilities

Group Exercise & Classes

Studio cycling is group class taught on stationary bicycles. Our studio cycling classes go by the name of:

  • ProCycle
  • Cycle Fit
  • Express Cycle Fit

Group cycling classes follow the same basic pattern: You pedal a stationary bike while the instructor talks you through a visualization of an outdoor workout. During the class you vary your pace and intensity, sometimes pedaling as fast as you can, other times cranking up the tension and pedaling slowly from a standing position.

  • What studio cycling does for you: Burns lots of calories and strengthens your thigh and calf muscles.
  • The exhaustion factor: High. Most studio cycling classes last between 30 to 45 minutes and are geared toward advanced exercisers although we say ANYONE can begin and slowly build yourself up. You always have the option of lightening the tension on the bike so that the pedals are easier to push, and you can stay seated while the rest of the class stands.
  • The coordination factor: Low. The most complex thing you’ll do is stand up on your pedals.
  • Who digs studio cycling: Studio cycling is popular among people who want to be pushed very hard, especially those who thrive on group energy but hate choreography. Cyclists who are cooped up indoors during the winter also gravitate toward these classes.
  • What to wear: Because most studio-cycling bikes have the same hard, narrow seats as outdoor racing bikes, a pair of padded bike shorts will help keep you comfortable. Most bikes have water-bottle cages so you can stash your water within easy reach. Wear stiff-soled shoes. Some bikes have “clipless” pedals so that you can wear outdoor cycling shoes with cleats that click into the pedals.

Mind, Body & Soul

Yoga, Pilates & Core based workouts to focus and cleanse the body and soul

Group Exercise & Classes

YOGA - Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The main components of yoga are postures (a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility) and breathing.

The practice originated in India about 5,000 years ago and has been adapted in other countries in a variety of ways. Yoga is now commonplace in leisure centres, health clubs, schools, hospitals and surgeries.

PILATES - Pilates aims to strengthen the body in an even way, with particular emphasis on core strength to improve general fitness and wellbeing.

Pilates exercises are done on a mat or using special equipment, such as the Reformer, Cadillac and Wunda Chair. With its system of pulleys and springs, handles and straps, the apparatus can provide either resistance or support, depending on your needs.

Pilates was developed by German-born Joseph Pilates, who believed mental and physical health were closely connected. His method was influenced by western forms of exercise, including gymnastics, boxing and Greco-Roman wrestling. Pilates immigrated to the US in the 1920s and opened a studio in New York, where he taught his method, which he called "contrology" – for several decades.


While the methods are different, pilates and yoga both develop strength, balance, flexibility, posture and good breathing technique.

Both systems emphasise the connection between physical and mental health, although yoga places more emphasis on relaxation and uses meditation. Pilates is performed both on apparatus and mats, whereas classic yoga doesn't require any equipment.

Pilates exercises are performed in a flow of movement without the static poses associated with yoga.

H.I.I.T & Circuit Training

High Intensity Interval Training & Circuits for those short on time, but big on results

Group Exercise & Classes

CIRCUIT TRAINING - Circuit training is a form of body conditioning or endurance training or resistance training using high-intensity. It targets strength building or muscular endurance.

An exercise "circuit" is one completion of all prescribed exercises in the program. When one circuit is complete, one begins the first exercise again for the next circuit.

Traditionally, the time between exercises in circuit training is short, often with rapid movement to the next exercise.

H.I.I.T - A form of interval training, HIIT is a cardiovascular exercise strategy alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less intense recovery periods.

RESISTANCE - Any exercise that causes the muscles to contract against an external resistance with the expectation of increases in strength, tone, mass, and/or endurance. The external resistance can be dumbbells, your own body weight, bricks, bottles of water, or any other object that causes the muscles to contract.
