Aerobics

This class brings you back to traditional Aerobics – but with a difference! Throughout the lesson we have 1-minute intervals of a choice of hula hoops, skipping ropes, weights, trampettes, mats, step, or an ab curler. During this time you can choose exactly what areas you want to work on, and guidance is always available. The class is taught to classic 80’s tracks and it’s a fun atmosphere, which really allows people to enjoy what can sometimes be a chore. This is a low-medium impact class suitable for everyone. Routines are taught gradually throughout the lesson and repeated for a number of weeks so you get more confident with the steps and therefore put more effort in as you progress. There are options for Hi and Lo intensity so you can pace yourself at your own level.

FAQs

What do I need to wear?

Something you can easily move around in that won’t make you too warm. Trainers are best for the feet. We do provide water (50p) otherwise it is recommended to bring a bottle with you.

I've not done much cardio, will I manage the class?

The class starts off quite gradually and builds up momentum, however I always say to people that you go at your own pace. There are options for moves to work more/less and stamina will build up over time. Plus with the intervals of equipment, you do get a few ‘breaks’ if you need to catch your breath.

Do I need to wait for a new routine to start before joining?

Not at all, whichever week you attend the moves are still built up gradually. You may find it harder in your first week but you gain confidence the more you attend.

Is this class good for weight loss?

Aerobics was always one of the top ways of losing weight because it’s a cardio workout with muscle toning combined – and as this class offers the mats as well, you can add in the extra element of an ab workout.
