You don't have to be a dancer to join in - this class is suitable for all fitness levels!

60 Minutes

Burn up to 1000 calories per class.

The method behind this madness is called “MAX Interval Training.” You may have heard of interval training, but this is different. Most interval workouts are moderate cardio-based exercises with short, high-intensity intervals. But in MAX Interval Training, your moderate-intensity exercise gets replaced with maximum-intensity exercise, and your short intervals of intensity get replaced with a short period of rest. So you’re working harder and longer and resting less.

Your mind will think working out at this intensity is INSANITY. But when you conquer your mind, you discover what’s truly possible. And that’s why it delivers INSANE results!

Legs, Bums & Tums
45 Minutes

Join our trainer Karolina to get a firmer bum, tum and leaner legs. The class is a full body aerobic workout that aims to tone up those flabby areas in your thighs, bum and stomach. It’s great for those who want to lose weight, or for those who simply want to improve their fitness levels.

30 Minutes

Train like a marine! The original HIIT workout, designed by former Royal Marine Commando Justin Corcoran.

Classes last up to 30 minutes, have a warm-up and short work intervals, which are followed by short periods of rest. The class will be completed by a cool down, and will leave you invigorated.

Anyone can give this class a go. Bring a towel and some water.

Pilates for Beginners
60 Minutes

This class aims to encourage beginners to Pilates to learn the basics of core strength and stability and how changing small things about their postural alignment can greatly improve all aspects of their lives. The great thing about training Pilates is that it has real applications in how we move about during the day and can impact and improve the training capabilities of participants.

Pilates Core
60 Minutes

Learn the principles of pilates to increase core strength while exercising the body in an even way to improve general fitness and wellbeing.

45–60 Minutes

PiYo combines the muscle-sculpting, core-firming benefits of Pilates with the strength and flexibility advantages of yoga. We crank up the speed to deliver a true fat-burning, low-impact workout that will leave your body looking long, lean, and incredibly defined.

This class is suitable for all fitness levels.

Tabata Circuit
45–60 Minutes

Tabata is a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), which alternates between intense exercises (e.g. jumping and squatting) to keep your heart rate up, but allow periods of rest to keep you going.

The class is broken into 3 segments: cardio, upper body and lower body giving you the best workout possible.

The benefits of a Tabata Circuit

After an intense workout like HIIT, your body will burn fuel like crazy. Our Tabata class is ideal if your goal is to lose fat. Your metabolism will stay high not only during the workout, but after the workout as well. Which means that your body will be burning fat between 24-48 hours after.

Why join our tabata class?

If it’s simple, you’re more likely to stick to it. If you’re more likely to stick to it, you’ll see progress. And if you see progress, you will continue and get the results you desire, while having fun too!

Vinyasa Yoga
