Which Exercise Class Is For You

If it has not been easy to get out and exercise this summer with the kids off school you will be looking forward to getting back on track with your usual fitness routine. Or maybe trying something new!
There are lots of classes to choose from. Here are just a few of the most popular classes near you.

Are you ready to party yourself into shape? That’s exactly what Zumba is all about. It’s exhilarating, effective, easy to follow, calorie burning and most important great fun! Zumba is an excellent way to improve coordination and proprioception (your awareness of where your body is in space). There is particular attention paid to hips and abdominals in Latin dances and therefore, Zumba is perfect for their toning.

Pilates is a body conditioning routine that helps build flexibility, strength and endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms, hips, and back. It puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment. It develops a strong core or centre (tones abdominals while strengthening the back), and it improves coordination and balance. Intensity can be increased over time as the body adapts to the exercises. No muscle group is under or over trained. It is suitable for people of all ages and never too late to start!

In addition to the standard benefits of any exercise, the use of water in water aerobics supports the body and reduces the risk of muscle or joint injury. Exercising in the water puts less stress on the joints when stretching and can allow a greater range of motion. Another benefit is that you do not even have to be a strong swimmer to participate in water aerobics.
From water aerobic exercises to water walking exercises, working out in the pool is an excellent non-impact way to build strength, reduce body fat, and increase flexibility.


Salsa dancing is a unique form of exercise because it provides all the benefits of an aerobic exercise while also allowing you to dance and make new friends in a social activity.

Helps with weight loss (Salsa Dancing on average Burns off 420 + calories per hour). Dancing can burn more calories an hour than riding a bike or swimming.
Relieves stress

Many people think that yoga is just stretching. But while stretching is certainly involved, yoga is really about creating balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. Yoga brings together mental and physical disciplines to achieve peacefulness of body and mind, helping you relax and manage stress and anxiety. It is also believed that the yoga positions help improve blood circulation by the stimulation or massage of body organs.
