ABOUT THE CLASSES
WHAT TO WEAR
Most people wear a comfortable 't'shirt and leggings or a pair of shorts.
Please wear trainers for Aero-tone-ilates, if you have them, as this prevents injuries during the exercise. I can give you advice at the class on what to buy. For the pilates and toning class its bare feet or yoga socks.
If you have your own mat, do bring it. I always bring mats so you can use mine.
Do bring a bottle of water in case you want to stop for a drink. I do provide water in case you forget.
If you are new to the class, I will ask you to fill in a screening form which lets me know if you have any injuries or illnesses or if you are on any medication which may affect you while you are exercising.
The class fee is £5 for exercise and a further £1 if you want to weigh-in.
The pilates and toning class is £8
The Step class is £6 or £5 if you bring your own step
I provide diet and exercise advice each week.
The Aero-tone-ilates class
The AEROBICS part of the class lasts for 25 minutes and I show options throughout to make the moves simpler and low-impact (for those of you who are beginners and those with bad knees or backs). Do stop for a drink during the aerobics if you want a pause!
The TONING part of the class is the fun part when we get out all the toys ...Bands, Balls and Weights. If you are a beginner, you use the pink bands and the smallest weights. ENJOY!! This lasts 10 minutes.
The Pilates part of the class lasts 10 minutes and includes all the best (most effective) Pilates exercises I have come across over the years.
The class ends with stretching and relaxation zzzzzzzzzz.
You will leave a changed person.....aerobically fit, toned and ready to take on the world with a smile on your face...(endorphin buzz)!
THE Pilates class
This class is a combination of toning exercises and pilates using bands and handweights (optional).
It includes functional Pilates and Balance work with hedgehogs .The exercises are done to relaxing music and most of the exercises are on the mats. The results are amazing!
The Step Class
This class is 30 minutes of low impact aerobic exercise on the step, working at your own fitness level (you can alter the height of your step for your personal level)
There is then toning exercises using hand weights and bands and then some floor work concentrating on core strength, tummy blitz, and Pilates exercises and stretches.
