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.

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.

Cycle Fit is group class taught on stationary bicycles
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.
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.
A brand new class inspired by Ballet technique and exercises used to sculpt and tone your body whilst improving mobility, posture, and full body strength. All ages and abilities welcome.
Perfect For Everybody and every body! Each class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on.
