The series includes: pranayama (breathing practices); sun salutations; standing postures; seated postures; finishing postures (including shoulder stands); and meditation.

Barre Stretch Fitness

A high intensity interval class that goes back-to-basics using bodyweight training and high intensity pad work. This class will raise your metabolism into maximum overdrive.

Like all our classes, you can take things at your own pace.

Circuits

Our circuit training involves a series of exercises at different stations laid out in a circuit. The class will involve a series of resistance stations, using equipment or body weight exercises like sit-ups and lunges.

These exercises will target different muscle groups to strengthen and tone your whole body as you work your way around the course. It’s a brilliant class for a full body workout.

DDP Yoga

DDP Yoga isn't your normal yoga! Combining the best of traditional yoga, calisthenics, sports rehabilitation therapy and dynamic resistance, DDP Yoga is a really effective fitness plan that anybody can do!

Family Yoga

Through mindfulness, visualisation and relaxation techniques, children and parents also learn to calm their minds and relax, which can significantly help with bed time and sleeping patterns.

Appropriate for all levels, especially beginners and anyone with injuries or limitations, Gentle Yoga is a great way to begin your yoga practice. Using various yoga props, participants are guided through a slower paced class, focusing on stretching all areas of the body to release stress and tension.

This class is suitable for all fitness levels.

Hatha Yoga
60 Minutes

Hatha yoga provides the means for people of any age to develop balance, coordination, and a sense of centeredness. It renews, invigorates, and heals the body – stretching and toning the muscles, joints, and spine and directing blood and oxygen to the internal organs.

Hatton Boxing
40 Minutes

A boxing-for-fitness class where you will do a combination of padwork and bodyweight exercises, giving you a mix of cardiovascular and resistance training that is perfect for burning fat.

Hip Hop Fitness
60 Minutes

Pop, lock, and drop it in a choreographed fitness dance class. Wild out with Leah and throw your worries away for a good sweat!

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

Insanity
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.

Metafit
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.

PiYo
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
60 Minutes

Vinyasa yoga is a flowing, dynamic sequence of poses that is one of the most popular styles of yoga in Edinburgh. The fluid movements increase flexibility, strength, and stamina, as it calms the mind and improves overall health.

Don't worry if you're new to yoga, each sequence has a number of options. It is a class suitable for all fitness levels.

Yin Yoga
60 Minutes

A slow-paced style of yoga with postures that are held for longer periods of time, increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.

A gym
for people
not profit

Projekt 42 is a gym for everyone.

From Abs Blast and Animal Flow® to Metafit and Yin Yoga, whatever your fitness level, experience, age or mindset, there's something for you. We want to make exercise and fitness accessible and affordable for everyone — classes start at just £2.50 per class and we've even got an area for kids to play while their parents work out!

Building happy bodies and strong minds

We want to change the way people think about mental health.

Our goal is to help people understand the connection between their mental health and physical fitness through carefully crafted fitness and yoga classes, guided meditation, life coaching and counselling.

Profit for purpose

Any profit we make goes back into the local community, allowing us to provide free memberships, counselling and life coaching for the people who need them most. Projekt 42 doesn't have corporate shareholders. Projekt 42 belongs to the local community.

We want to create a community hub

Whilst we develop our purpose-built gym and wellness centre just off Leith Walk, we are running fitness and yoga classes in a TEST_ZONE at the Newkirkgate shopping centre in Leith.

We're an independent charity

We're not affiliated with the local council or any other charity organisation. We're funded by our members, as well as by grants and donations.
