The types of training

Muscle training

helps keep your body in shape and, as the name suggests, strengthen your muscles

BodyPump® 

This endurance training set to uptempo music is a Les Mills concept class and is currently one of the most popular training styles all over the world. What makes it a concept is the fact that all of the exercises you do and every piece of music used during a session are chosen by the trainer. Special weights and barbells are used, and you decide how heavy they should be depending on your level of training. We recommend that beginners speak to the trainer before starting classes.

During the session you do effective exercises including squats, slides and press-ups.

The focus is on repetitions. By regularly increasing the weight you work with your body and musculature will get stronger all the time.

BodyToning

This varied training takes place at a leisurely pace. It boosts muscle tone and improves total body shape. During the session you use things like step benches, dumbbells, fitballs, Bosu balls, rubber expanders and bars. BodyToning is suitable for people of all ages and levels of fitness.

Abs&Bums

This training hones in on the problem areas that are the belly, back, thighs and buttocks. The exercises make use of equipment as well as utilising your own body weight.

You can choose between 45-minute and 55-minute sessions. The training is suitable for people of all ages and levels of fitness.

Circuit training

Circuit training takes place in the gym with a group size of no more than 12 people. That way the trainer gets to work with each of the participants personally and check that they are doing the exercises correctly.

Exercises of various levels of difficulty and intensity are done during the session to develop your endurance and muscle strength. Different techniques are used as well as a variety of equipment, including dumbbells, medicine balls, plyoboxes, wall bars, rubber expanders and speed ladders.

Each exercise is done for a specific amount of time (40-60 seconds) before the trainer moves you on to the next exercise. A complete circuit is done in every session, with each exercise being repeated two to three times.

Circuit training can be challenging for experienced athletes but is also doable for beginners, because if you find any of the exercises unsuitable you can replace them with something else better suited to your abilities. No music is used for circuit training and the trainer does not use a microphone.

 

Abs 30

This intensive 30-minute class trains the stomach and back muscles. It is well suited to both men and women, whether you are working out in the gym or pool, and makes an ideal ‘warm up’ before or ‘cool down’ after another training session.

Combined/aerobic training

develops your endurance and is great for burning calories

HIIT

HIIT is high-intensity interval training that will really get you going and put your endurance to the test!

The session starts with a warm-up, raising your BPM and preparing your body for the workout that lies ahead. The rest of the session, as the name suggests, takes place in intervals where you vary between intensive and very effective aerobic exercises (running, jumping, thrusts, etc.) and less intense exercises that nevertheless still require you to make an effort.

The training is easy to follow and the trainer demonstrates both simpler and harder versions of the exercises. If you really push yourself you can burn up to 700 kcal in one Intensity session.

This type of training requires you to be in good shape and have high levels of endurance. It is not suitable for those with heart problems, back or knee injuries or high blood pressure or for pregnant women.

Fatburner

This aerobic training aims to get your pulse up into the fat-burning zone through constant movement. Each session switches between simple combinations of steps and muscle training using a step bench and dumbbells.

This training can be done by people of all ages and levels of fitness and is well suited to those looking to lose weight.

JumpingFit

This fun, intense training gets you moving to music and gives you the chance to really vent! It uses specially developed Jumping® trampolines.

During the first half of the session you do a series of jumping exercises at different speeds and using various techniques, while in the second half you also do strength exercises. JumpingFit is three times more effective than running and strengthens your entire musculature. This is due to the continuous gravitational changes you undergo, which involve more than 400 muscles contracting and relaxing at the same time.

Children from the age of 12 are welcome to join in. This training is not suitable for those with back or knee injuries or muscle problems or for pregnant women.

Each session lasts for 45 minutes and requires sports shoes.

Pilates

This training system was named after its creator, Joseph H. Pilates. Its main aim is to strengthen your muscles by stabilising your spine, thereby allowing you to achieve mental and physical balance. The system involves both mind and body and moves from simpler exercises to more complex ones, emphasising the training process and the exercise experience. Exercises are performed in a specific order, with new exercises being added only when your body is ready for them. A great deal of attention is turned to stretching short muscles and strengthening weak muscles. Correct breathing is also important. The aim is to boost the quality of your physical movement and to provide mental relaxation. The sessions do not require shoes – you can take part barefoot or in socks.

Simple balance, strength and stretching exercises designed to boost your energy levels and bring balance to both mind and body are performed to an accompaniment of mantras, African drum music and other energy-giving styles of music.
