New to the timetable
Ballet Sculpt

This amazing leg, hips and stomach shaping and calorie burning class blends techniques from dance with safe, low-impact moves and is specifically designed for the non-dancer. It's like vertical Pilates. It will train the abdominals to act as a "corset" to tighten and flatten your belly, while strengthening the core. But unlike Pilates, the class is on your feet and moving and feels like a fitness class. Be prepared for a lot of leg work and sweat! With easy-to-follow, dynamic moves, BalletSculpt leaves you feeling like a dancer strong through the core with sculpted flowing limbs, slim hips and a lifted derriere.

H.I.I.T Training
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is an enhanced form of interval training, an exercise strategy alternating periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. HIIT is a form of cardiovascular exercise. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition, improved glucose metabolism, and improved fat burning.

Tai Chi for Health
Tai Chi is an internal martial art, meaning that it places more emphasis on improving internal power, the Qi (life force), the mind, mental ability and health rather than your muscle power. It stresses working from within first, which helps build a strong, yet soft, inner power. It will help you improve your posture, balance and muscle strength, alleviate stress, increase flexibility and improve your flow of energy, as well as improve existing medical conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, back pain, etc. The 12 weeks course will give you an exciting journey to learn the Yang Style 24 Form which is the most popular form of Tai Chi. No prior experience is needed.

Class Descriptions

Boot Camp
A fitness boot camp is a type of group exercise class that mixes traditional callisthenic and body weight exercises with interval training and strength training. They are designed in a way that pushes the participants harder than they'd push themselves and, in that way, will give you a fantastic total body workout.
Using a century old technique developed in Russia, a typical kettlebell routine builds functional muscular strength by mimicking movements in your everyday life .A single routine will use all ranges of motions so joints and muscles are strengthened from all angles.
Box Fit
Enjoy sparring with a partner using pads and shadowboxing which involves repetitions of boxing moves as the basis for a high energy workout.  The emphasis is on knocking your body into shape, not knocking anyone out!!
Core Strength
New and improved, this class will see you through a series of core exercises involving the use of fitballs, foam rollers, pilates and RIP 60. Fantastic, fun and more effective than ever.

Shadow Yoga is a hatha yoga style developed by Shandor Remete which incorporates all the traditional aspects of Hatha Yoga, including asana, bandha, pranayama, mudra, and meditation. A unique aspect of Shadow Yoga is its prelude forms. These dynamic routines, which incorporate elements of martial arts and Indian classical dance, prepare the body for general asana practice, and it is these forms which are learned in the general classes. The classes are suitable for beginners as well as more experienced practitioners.
