NEW sessions!

- We have added in 2 lunchtime sessions to the programme - these are express classes and will run for 30mins. The gym will be open 15mins prior to the session for you to arrive, mobilise and warm up before the session commences.

- Core & Mobility classes - these classes are low impact sessions, great for prep for the HIIT classes after or as an option for active recovery. The Core & Mobility classes will be 30mins long and will focus on strengthening the core muscles working the Posterior Chain muscle groups. A good amount of time will be spent doing some active and static stretching and poses to lengthen out the muscles as well as working on flexibility. There is no doubt you will still work up a sweat here!

- Aqua HIIT session is back - Now that the weather is heating up we are bringing back our HIIT session that is based in the water!  you don't have to be a strong swimmer, there are plenty of options to choose from. This session incorporates both in water and out of water exercises.

- Strength based session- This session will focus each week on one strength component by working specific skills and exercises to work targeted areas. For example you might be working towards your heaviest back squat you can perform and then working the accessories that will help you achieve this. This session will also help with maintaining correct technique for when you implement the same movements in to your HIIT classes. These sessions are smaller in size and the train will be setting some initial strength tests.


We will run the 6 week fitness programme with a mix of fitness sessions that incorporate fun and exciting exercises that will benefit you. We challenge ourselves in providing unique fitness sessions that are exclusive to us and not one of our sessions is ever repeated. You will have a trainer motivating you throughout the workout who has specially designed the session for our members.... we don't run generic sessions, your instructors create the workouts especially for our members. You you can push yourself as much as you need and feel comfortable to.

All members receive a pool client card that allows you to come in to the pools for swimming free of charge for the 6 weeks. There are some additional Aqua Classes that you can attend as extras if you prefer to do water only sessions, you just need to speak with us so we can arrange it. 

Our programme is aimed to cater to all fitness abilities as we schedule approx 3 different skill/fitness levels in our sessions. We don't recommend attending the high impact classes if you have a major injury that will restrict you from completing the movements. You should seek medical clearance if you have a major medical issue/restriction from performing simple movements. These movements are performed in most of our workouts in one way or another and you will come across the following: Squat, Push up, Plank, Crunches/Sit ups, Burpee, Lunges, Deadlift as well as running, moderate jumping and using functional fitness equipment. We do not want to be changing exercises to a complete different part of the body so you need to be either attending the sessions that will ensure your injury will not be provoked or be able to do the modified version of them.  We highly recommend the aqua and water based classes for people who are recovering from injuries as the water is low impact.

Aqua fitness is great for toning and working the cardiovascular system. We have three types of Aqua based sessions which are working in the deep water, shallow water and a bit of swimming. You don't have to be a competent swimmer to get involved on our programme and we have specialised equipment for the water sessions so you can work to the level you want.
