Group Fitness - Circuit Conditioning

Circuit training involves performing a series of exercises in a special order called a circuit. Each activity takes place at a 'station'. Each 'station' has an allocated time of exercise before moving on to the next 'station' and so on following the circuit until the workout is completed. It can be designed to improve speed, agility, coordination, balance and muscular endurance. Often based around sporting movements and technique's 'circuit training' is an exciting and fun way to work out and is generally performed at a high intensity, therefore offering the extra benefits of cardio vascular improvement and fat loss.

What does 'Functional' Mean?

Functional fitness exercises are designed to train and develop your muscles to make it easier and safer to perform everyday activities like carrying groceries or playing a game of basketball with your kids. Movements like running, squatting, bending, lunging, pushing, pulling and twisting are all key to performing daily tasks and staying injury-free.

Functional Fit

This class involves full body functional exercises and movements that enhance cardio fitness, strength, joint mobility and core stability.

Functional Strength

This class involves full body functional exercises and movements that enhance strength, endurance, balance and movement capactiy, while also emphasising core stability.
