Ringtreening (Circuit training)

Circuit training takes place in the gym with a group size of no more than 12 people. That way the trainer gets to work with each of the participants personally and check that they are doing the exercises correctly.

Exercises of various levels of difficulty and intensity are done during the session to develop your endurance and muscle strength. Different techniques are used as well as a variety of equipment, including dumbbells, medicine balls, plyoboxes, wall bars, rubber expanders and speed ladders.

Each exercise is done for a specific amount of time (40-60 seconds) before the trainer moves you on to the next exercise. A complete circuit is done in every session, with each exercise being repeated two to three times.

Circuit training can be challenging for experienced athletes but is also doable for beginners, because if you find any of the exercises unsuitable you can replace them with something else better suited to your abilities. No music is used for circuit training and the trainer does not use a microphone.

Water aerobics develops joint movement, strengthens the heart and burns a lot of calories, thereby helping you lose weight. It is also invigorating and will leave you in a good mood for the rest of the day.

While in the pool your movement is affected by the water itself and by the eddies generated by your movement, which gives all of your muscle groups a good workout and also a massage. The exercises can be made even more effective by using special water equipment including pool dumbbells, noodles, swim boards and gloves.

Water aerobics training is even suitable for those who can’t swim. It is particularly beneficial to those who are overweight and suffer from joint problems, since 90% of your body weight is erased when you are up to your neck in water.
