TURBOCHARGED TUESDAYS – NEW EVENING CLASS
Starting on Tuesday 6th July at 18:00 until the end of the year
Imagine a turbocharged workout that mixes cardio and strength training and has you in and out of the gym in 45 minutes. A workout that will continue to burn calories for the next 6 hours and will help you achieve your results quicker than you thought possible. That is exactly what our newest HIIT Circuit class is designed to do.
What is HIIT circuit training?
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) Circuit is a style of workout where you make your way through several exercises targeting different muscle groups with minimal rest in between. The result is a workout that taxes your muscular strength and endurance and your cardiorespiratory system.
What are some circuit training benefits?
Circuit training workouts have a ton of benefits, but some of the reasons to try it are:
It’s is a great boredom buster: moving quickly from one exercise to the next means your mind doesn’t have time to wander or tune out.
An all-strength circuit burns 30 percent more calories (about nine per minute!) than a typical weight workout and offers more cardio benefits, and a workout that combines cardio and strength moves will blast fat and sculpt muscle.
Great for those who like to workout in the evenings!
ADVANCED INNOVATION RIGHT HERE IN THE SPIN STUDIO
There was a rumbling in the Athletic Department last week with excited Members lining up to have a look at the new and very much improved spin bikes.
After much research and consultation, the AD team landed on the ICG7; the top of the range spin bike from life fitness. The award-winning IC7 is the most advanced indoor cycle ever designed. Its pioneering design and functionality are due largely to an innovative two-stage drivetrain. Freed of the large centre pulley characteristic of traditional bike design, the IC7 brings a lower, sleeker profile to the studio.
The improvements aren‘t limited to aesthetics. The two-stage drivetrain enables the market’s most accurate (+/-1% deviation) WattRate Direct Power Meter, 100-level precision magnetic resistance, 1:11 ratio high-speed flywheel, and an unrivalled connection to the ride thanks to the tactile and responsive hybrid Poly-V and tooth belt technology. The bike’s performance metrics are delivered to the rider via the re-engineered WattRate TFT Computer 2.0 – a fully self-powered computer that vividly displays the user’s WattRate power or heart rate to them and their coach in five coloured zones (meaning we instructors can tell if you are taking it easy when you should be working hard!).
Are you up for the challenge?
