Programme details

$105 for the 6 week HIIT Fitness Programme

We run a 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 ever and you can push yourself as much as you need and feel comfortable to.

All members receive a pool card that allows you to come in to the pools for swimming free of charge for 8 weeks. There are some additional Aqua Classes that you can attend as extras if you prefer to do water only sessions.

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, modorate 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. 

Additional incentives..

- Prize for the person who attends the most classes in the 6 weeks.

- Body change challenge. We know this is not all about weight loss, we believe it is important to look to change habits, motivation, body confidence.) Changes are not always done on the scales by weight loss, it is in the way your feel your motivation and skill improvement. We will reward a top member with some cool prizes for challenging themselves.

Aqua based

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.

Land based

The land based sessions will involve a mix of circuit training, running, high intensity interval training, gym style workouts and boxing sessions. Most sessions will be held on site at the Napier Aquatic Centre where we have our own private training area and use of a fitness gym. Our Boxing session is based offsite and we might plan a session out in the Napier community every now and then (more in the summer/warmer months). Our trainers will cater to the different fitness levels and will have plenty of options to choose from. During the winter months we use the poolside area for our circuits, cardio and core sessions. We provide foam mats for our clients however you may prefer to bring your own with you to the sessions.
