What are fitness classes?
Fitness classes are high-intense training sessions offered extensively by certified personal trainers, typically divided into 3 specific sections; a light warm-up, an energetic and intense workout, and a closing cool down. The exercises offered throughout are professionally structured and uniquely designed to:
- Help build your self-confidence
- Provide you with energetic and effective full-body workouts
- Improve your cardiovascular fitness
- Enhance your overall body balance
Whether you're looking to train for an upcoming Triathlon, work on your fitness level, strength, and stamina, or simply want to have fun with your friends, then you should most definitely sign up! People of all ages, gender, shapes, and sizes are duly encouraged to take part; no partners required.
