HIIT

Stands for high intensity interval training. It’s an opportunity to push yourself to your max for a short duration of time & then rest, repeat. There are a number of different HIIT protocols & I use a variety in classes including Bootcamp, Strength Training (with HIIT) & Spinning (on the bike). HIIT increase the rate you burn fuel for energy, it also increases your metabolic rate. It also has important health benefits; reducing heart rate, blood pressure & is especially beneficial for those needing to reduce insulin resistance & high blood sugar levels to a normal range. It is time efficient at improving your aerobic & anaerobic fitness levels.

It’s a calm & controlled exercise class that positively benefits your mind, body & central nervous system.

 

Pilates & Stretching Beginners

Ideal for beginners who want to get started with Pilates increasing muscle strength & tone, particularly of your abdominal muscles, lower back, hips & glutes (the ‘core muscles’ of your body) balance muscle strength on both sides of your body, understand how to gain muscle connection & control improving the stabilisation of your spine. Leave feeling revitalised with gentle stretches & exercises in this class.

 

Pilates Beginners & Improvers

Pilates is for everybody, regardless of gender, age, race, size, ability or current fitness level. The Pilates repertoire, which includes mat work & equipment is made up of over 600 exercises & variations. The goal of this class is to coordinate your movement & breathe together to work the smaller deeper stabilising muscles of your body as much as your prime movers. To align your entire body’s overall structures & provide joint support. This class utilises a lot of ‘level 1’ beginners & ‘level 2’ improvers exercises to keep progressing as you get stronger.

 

Pilates with Weights

Using weights in Pilates heightens the focus on your body position making you concentrate on the precision of each movement. This enables you to listen & connect with your bodies own feedback mechanisms & build on it effectively & safely. Adding small weights also bring extra resistance & stimulation to your muscles, increasing strength & tone.

 

Pilates with Resistance Bands

Including resistance bands into Pilates exercises assists you to move with better form & technique during Pilates exercises. It generates power from the correct muscles making the workout more efficient. Resistance bands are good for beginners to advanced class members offering support, external bio feedback, stability & resistance, which can be increased by using a heavier band. The band helps to activate specific muscles whilst maintaining alignment, stability & control. Using the band in Pilates is a fantastic way to improve total body tone & strength in a low impact way.

 

Pilates with Mini Ball

Adding a mini Pilates ball to exercises can increase levels of challenge & stimulation both mentally & physically. Using a mini ball has several benefits for your body & mind. It provides an unstable surface, requiring your core muscles to engage & stabilise your body during exercises. This helps to develop core strength, improve posture & enhance overall stability. It targets muscle engagement at a deep level & intensifies activation, leading to improved strength. It also adds variety which encourages your mind & body to focus more on alignment, control & balance by making the Pilates exercises more dynamic. Incorporating the mini ball increases range of movement which improves mobility & flexibility in a gentle & supportive way.
