Cardio and Strength Classes

CARDIO & STRENGTH

Cardio exercise means doing a rhythmic activity that raises your heart rate into your target heart rate zone, the zone where you'll burn the most fat and calories. There are a number of other benefits to cardio exercise including; it can help strengthen the heart, improve lung capacity, increase bone density, improve quality of sleep, and help make you feel good. A number of our cardio classes also include strength and toning work.


Below you can see the cardio and strength & tone classes we have on offer.


BETTER BODY CLUB



HIIT

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) has become a popular way to burn more fat. It's a training method that has been effective for many people. Low to moderate intensity intervals are alternated with high intensity intervals.


HIIT is considered to be much more effective than normal cardio because the intensity is higher and you are able to increase both your aerobic and anaerobic endurance while burning more fat than ever before.

Jump & Tone


Jump & Tone is a cardio class using trampettes and working to music to create a flowing sequence of exercises. It will get your heart rate up, helping you to burn calories and lose weight. Cardio exercise also makes your heart strong so that it doesn't have to work as hard to pump blood & increases your lung capacity. This helps reduce your risk of heart attack, high cholesterol, high blood pressure & diabetes.


The class also includes some toning and stretching exercises at the end of each session. It is taught by Lisa.
