The types of training
helps keep your body in shape and, as the name suggests, strengthen your muscles
This endurance training set to uptempo music is a Les Mills concept class and is currently one of the most popular training styles all over the world. What makes it a concept is the fact that all of the exercises you do and every piece of music used during a session are chosen by the trainer. Special weights and barbells are used, and you decide how heavy they should be depending on your level of training. We recommend that beginners speak to the trainer before starting classes.
During the session you do effective exercises including squats, slides and press-ups.
The focus is on repetitions. By regularly increasing the weight you work with your body and musculature will get stronger all the time.
This varied training takes place at a leisurely pace. It boosts muscle tone and improves total body shape. During the session you use things like step benches, dumbbells, fitballs, Bosu balls, rubber expanders and bars. BodyToning is suitable for people of all ages and levels of fitness.
This training hones in on the problem areas that are the belly, back, thighs and buttocks. The exercises make use of equipment as well as utilising your own body weight.
You can choose between 45-minute and 55-minute sessions. The training is suitable for people of all ages and levels of fitness.
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.

Body & Mind

The training is suitable for people of all levels of fitness and takes place in socks or barefoot.
This functional training is inspired by yoga, physiotherapy, martial arts and ordinary strength exercises.

Yin yoga also influences your energy or ‘meridians’, which are considered the channels of the life force. If this force flows through us freely, we experience balance and vitality within ourselves. Yin practices are the perfect balance to yang practices like intensive cardio and strength training. They can also be useful to people whose days see them expending active or tense energy.
We recommend dressing more warmly than you would for other group training sessions and wearing socks.
