This class is designed to familiarize you with the basic Yoga postures (asanas) and breathing techniques (pranayama), with personal instruction in a relaxed and uplifting environment.
What is it? Cycling is an aerobic exercise that takes place on a specially designed stationary bicycle. As you pedal, motivating music plays and the instructor talks you through a visualization of an outdoor cycling workout: “You’re going up a long hill now, you can’t see the top yet.” During the class you vary your pace — sometimes pedaling as fast as you can, other times cranking up the tension and pedaling slowly from a standing position. This helps you to focus inwardly and work on your mind as well as your body.
BODYPUMP is the original barbell class that strengthens your entire body. This 60-minute workout challenges all your major muscle groups by using the best weights-room exercises like squats, presses, lifts and curls. Great music, awesome instructors and your choice of weight inspire you to get the results you came for- and fast!
You use a step platform, a bar and a set of weights and adjust your weight selection to suit your fitness level. After an initial all-body warm-up, all the major muscle groups are worked.
The larger muscles of the legs, chest and back are worked first in that order, followed by the smaller muscles of the arms, namely the biceps, triceps and shoulders. The legs are worked a second time with lunges before the abdominals are trained. The class finishes with a well-earned cool down and stretch.
Throughout the class the focus is on correct lifting technique and postural alignment, which is carried over into everyday activities. Using light to moderate weights and high repetitions, each muscle group is worked for about five minutes.
This type of endurance training is excellent for increasing lean body mass and improving muscle tone and definition- but without building bulk.
