Beginning to Run NEW!
A step by step approach
Don’t know where to start? Runnings not for you? Too embarrassed to run? Is there a technique? Do I have to wear special gear? Grass or concrete?

Our Fitness Expert will address your fears, answer your questions, help you understand the correct and effective technique, form and posture to get you motivated and informed, & to help you sustain a good pace.
Getting out of your comfort zone NEW!
Let’s mix it up in 2016!
So you might have a little more time now the working week is over and you’re looking to increase your activity. Ever tried turning that slow paced walk into a fast one, or turning the fast one into a light jog? Everyone has their limits and that’s allowed. The problem is getting stuck in a rut and not seeing the results you want. Of course, there’s lots of factors to consider when chasing a result, but what about changing it up, trying something new like boxercise, kettlebells, trx, swimming
With a world of choice out there, our Fitness Expert will take you through the motivational tips you need to go that little bit further and explain the benefits of changing it up.
HIIT workouts at home NEW!
Getting your heartrate up and body fat down in the comfort of your own home
HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, 100% effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short recovery periods
HIIT Workouts will get your heartrate up and your body fat down, with calories burning up to hours after the training session. Our Fitness Expert will explain why it works, and demonstrate what to do. You’ll leave with a combination of 3 different HIITS you can practice anywhere with little or no equipment.!
The Mind-Body Connection NEW!
How to Utilise Mindfulness Techniques to Improve Your Workout
A key element of mindfulness revolves around the body scan, where the practitioner thinks about every part of his or her body, from toe to top of the head, and assesses how each part feels. When working out, you can use a similar technique to ensure you are properly engaging the muscles. Not only will this get you stronger and aid in the efficacy of your workouts, but it will also help you to relax and more thoroughly engage with the actions you’re taking.
We’ll show you how.

Do not let pain get in the way of running

Our Fitness Instructor will take you through the steps of injury free running so that your steps are the best they can be.
Chi Running – what is it and is it for me? NEW!

We’ll introduce you to the concept and principles.
