HIIT Sessions

HIIT (high intensity interval training) sessions are great for anyone looking for a challenging workout. During any HIIT class you will perform a variety of different exercises to work lots of muscle groups, alternating between spurts of intense work and periods of rest.

Our newest HIIT class, BLAZE, combines cardiovascular training with strength and combat skills to give a challenging workout in a purpose-built studio. The class will change from week to week to ensure you’re kept on your toes. Find out more about BLAZE.

We also have other HIIT options to get involved in. Synrgy360 HIIT uses elements of the Synrgy360 functional zone within the gym to really put you through you paces via short bursts of intense activity, while our standard gym HIIT classes use a variety of gym equipment and floor exercises to get your heart rate rising. You’ll feel fitter, stronger and leaner in no time.

Yoga & Pilates classes

To some, exercise is more about taking a steady approach to increase flexibility, calm the mind and develop a strong, stable core. Our holistic classes allow you to do just that. 

Pilates sessions are designed to concentrate on slow and measured movements to create strong, lean muscles whilst improving your posture and flexibility. Plus, our Reformer Pilates classes can take your experience to a new level, as exercises are performed through greater ranges of motion and involve increased resistance provided by a specialist frame.

Our Mind and Body studios also form the perfect environment for an extensive range of yoga classes. With everything from Ashtanga to Hatha available for members to enjoy, these sessions will help you to feel supple, relaxed and energised. We also offer Meditation and Tai Chi classes at various clubs to ensure there’s a way for everybody to relax.

And if you fancy something that combines elements of yoga, Pilates and sound meditation, try SPIRIT, our latest holistic class which provides an energising yet calming workout.

Strength & conditioning

Our great range of strength and conditioning classes offer the perfect alternative or accompaniment to weight training and resistance workouts in the gym. Feel more toned, stronger and increase your muscle mass via a number of great group classes.

BODYPUMP is one of our most popular classes, and uses weighted exercises with plenty of repetition to give a full body workout and burn loads of calories. Likewise, Legs, Bums and Core incorporates movements with various pieces of equipment to target those stubborn areas that often need a little extra work.

If you’re looking for something a little gentler, our Total Conditioning classes include exercises to improve aerobic fitness, strength and flexibility using a variety of equipment, as well as body weight exercises. Plus, many of our gym floor HIIT classes include elements of strength and conditioning training too.
