Some of the classes we run include:
Legs, Bums, and Tums – (formerly Fit’n’Flex)
This is our non-aerobic session, aimed at those who do not want to raise their heart rate, but who want to get into better shape and achieve a better posture and figure. It’s ideal for new mums and mums-to-be, and also for people new to fitness or getting back into exercise after a long break – for example after injury. Every muscle group from head to toe gets attention in this session, with particular emphasis paid to those troublesome areas of legs, arms, bums, and tums. There is plenty of opportunity to increase your core abdominal strength and to improve all round flexibility. The sessions are accompanied by a wide variety of music; from classical and ballet, to High School Musical, compilations from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, and in fact anything Lesley has on her iPod. Barry Manilow duets have been a talking point!
Get in touch with your inner carnival Queen as you samba, salsa, cha cha cha, and get those hips moving to the beat of Latin America and raise your heart rate in this fun aerobic session. You don’t need to be a dance expert: the moves are very simple and the emphasis is on enjoying what you’re doing.
Take yourself back to the days of rock ‘n’ roll and all those wonderful tunes of the 50s and 60s. Jive-a-cise is a nostalgic-filled session to raise your heart-rate. This is an aerobic session with some jive steps added for authenticity (no ‘proper’ dancing involved). Plenty of well-known songs from Elvis, Cliff, Motown and many, many more to twist and groove to!
What do you call a class that has everything? ZWING! From Bollywood to West End show tunes via Africa and South America, this is an aerobic workout featuring music from all over the world. One minute you’re trying to can-can, the next you’re doing a mambo all around the room. High energy routines with low-impact options, there’s something for everyone in Zwing!
This is exercising at its happiest. Charleston-a-cise is guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face while raising your heart-rate. There are plenty of authentic Charleston steps to try, and you can even have a go at swivelling those knees if you want (Craig Revell-Horwood pay attention!) You don’t have too be an expert so long as you’re prepared to join in the fun. With music from the latest Eurovision to genuine Charleston tunes from the 20s, and even the occasional George Formby, this is a modern take on traditional Charleston while keeping the essentials of a high energy routine.
This is a ‘traditional’ session of aerobics – but don’t worry, you don’t have to come in leg-warmers and a Lycra leotard! The idea is the same as in Jane Fonda’s day: a set of exercises to target all the major muscle groups and to raise the heart rate, but that is where the similarity ends. Music is varied week to week so it could be the latest chart hits, a selection from ‘Now That’s What I Call Music 1989’, Glam rock songs from the 70s and anything else you request! The exercises, as for all the different classes, can be done as low-impact depending on your physical and personal abilities and requirements, and the emphasis is on having fun!
