Here’s some that you might not know about:
This exciting class, exclusive to Life Fit, is the perfect fusion of a sweat-inducing circuit session with technical movement control exercises. The class is designed, developed and delivered by our Physio and Sport Science experts.
So whether you are a sports person looking for a great conditioning session, completing end-stage injury rehab, or just looking for a slightly different approach to your workout, Physio Fit is for you.
Everyone’s heard of their ‘core’ but what does that mean? To Life Fit this means far more than a few ab crunches and a six pack. Core Fit follows the same fundamental principles as Physio Fit but has a focus on the hips, pelvis, torso and shoulders – what Life Fit think of as the Core! The exercises can be adjusted to suit your individual needs and abilities and can accommodate previous injuries and specific goals – all guided by our Physio and sport science instructors in a small group class.
This is a group exercise to music class designed to improve mobility, coordination, strength and balance. It’s ideal for older adults and those wanting a low impact exercise class. Classes are planned with differing abilities in mind, participants are always encouraged to work at their own level and adaptations are available for beginners and the less mobile. The music used reflects a variety of musical tastes hopefully providing something for everyone!
This class is ideal for anyone with mobility issues but wishing to take part in a gentle, yet stimulating session. Predominantly chair based, the class incorporates some elements of Pilates combined with strengthening, stretching and balance work. Under the guidance of Chartered Physiotherapist, Arlene Bowmaker, movements can be adapted to suit the individual’s needs and ability. This class is also suitable for clients who may be post knee or hip operation using it as a rehabilitation session. Anyone in early stage Neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s or Multiple Sclerosis may be interested in attending.
Nordic Walking is a safe, natural, dynamic fun activity where the use of a specially designed pair of Nordic Walking poles is added to your regular natural walking technique. Nordic Walking can burn similar amounts of calories as running, swimming or aerobics but without the effort being so noticeable.
Pilates Studio Circuit
If you want to add to your Pilates repertoire, then look no further than Pilates Studio Circuit sessions. Using larger and specialised Pilates equipment this is a circuit style class suitable for all Pilates students. Experience different and wide ranging Pilates exercises and enhance your regular matwork sessions.
This class allows you to pursue safe and gentle exercise throughout your pregnancy. Antenatal Pilates can help reduce back pain and strengthen stomach muscles. The class is taken by a Chartered Physiotherapist and can help with common discomforts of pregnancy.
