HIIT - INTERVAL TRAINING

Above picture is the aftermath!

Hiit Training can burn the same amount of calories in 30 minutes as you can in 60 minutes. In my HIIT class we use body weight exercises to target those stubborn areas and to shred fat fast. Great for improving fitness fast and brilliant for cross training

FAQ's

What do I need to wear?

Comfortable clothes, preferably leggings or yoga pants. T-shirts or vests and trainers if participating in dance fitness, hiit and the Easy fitness class. It is preferred to practice stretch & yoga and Pilates in bare feet.

What do I do when I arrive?

Come and see me first - I am always at the front by the stage. If you are paying for each session individually I'll provide you with a loyalty card. All new members need to fill out a medical health questionnaire. This ensures I understand your needs and that you are covered by my insurance. You will then find a space on the floor, and make chat with the person near you. We are a friendly bunch so don't be scared!

What do I need to bring?

For Pilates, stretch & yoga a yoga fitness mat of any kind. Most supermarkets will sell them or you can buy them online. I always have 2 spare with me. A water bottle, you will need to keep hydrated throughout the entire class. There are also toilet facilities and a water fountain to refill our bottles up.

I have problems with my knees, I'm pregnant, I'm not flexible?

A lot of people suffer with the same issues with regards to knees and lower back. I will give you options all the way through. If any exercises create any discomfort please inform me straight away. If you are Pregnant the Pilates class however is not advisable with myself as I am not trained but I have had 2 ladies attend through their entire pregnancy

Inflexible? 

Well this is how you can combat it. Find patience, stick with it and you will be amazed with the results. For all other classes take the low impact option.

I don't know any of the steps, will I look out of place?

Of course you won't. I have people coming to me for years and they still go the wrong way. Over the next few classes you will learn my hand signals and become familiar with the songs and routines. You will be surprised how quickly you will pick this up. And if you don't, who cares. Dance fitness is all about having fun and dancing to amazing music.
