About our types of class

FITNESS PILATES

Fitness Pilates

Locations: Zoom
Class Length: 45 minutes

Based on the traditional Pilates exercises, these classes are functional, building on obtaining better posture and mobility. Exercises are done both standing and on the floor. They are slow and controlled and target all areas of the body but always have a core focus (stomach, back and bottom).

Many different types of stretches are included and there are progressions offered for exercises to allow a mixed group of people to take part and work at their own level. They are classes that also help focus the mind and make you concentrate on yourself and can help you improve your mental health. There is a short stretch and relax at the end of each Pilates session.

There are different levels of class to suit participants and to assist with mental health we have a short stretch and relax at the end of each Pilates session.

Pilates with Equipment

Locations: Zoom
Class Length: 45 minutes

Using the Fitness Pilates exercises and adding in equipment such as resistance bands, loop bands, bender balls, tennis balls and gliders. These give variety to the exercises, a different focus and a really fun element too. Equipment can also aid in performing an exercise, progressing an exercise and obtaining a greater stretch.

I love the equipment and can find lots of different ways of performing a core exercise.

A group of people interval training

Pilates Intervals

Locations: Zoom
Class Length: 30/40 minutes

A 30/40-minute class using the Pilates moves you have learnt in class and putting them together to create a constant flow class that gently raises the heart rate but with no impact.

Class starts with a more dynamic warm-up and then moves through the exercises in intervals with active rest and stretching in between.

Options for different levels are given. It’s faster, fun and feels good!

STRENGTH & RESISTANCE

RESISTANCE CLASSES

Locations: Zoom
Class Length: 30 minutes

These classes are done using light hand weights, water bottles or resistance bands. They are both standing and floor-based, and some sessions could also be done seated. The resistance of the weights and the bands can help improve muscle strength and tone without building large muscles, maintain flexibility and balance, improve bone strength and help with weight management as greater muscle means more fat burning.

Some sessions also help improve the cardiovascular system by raising the heart rate to the fat-burning zone but with no impact.

Resistance work should be done by all age groups, in particular ladies going through any stage of menopause and more mature people who are at greater risk of osteoporosis and falls.

Legs, Bums and Tums

Locations: Zoom
Class Length: 30 minutes

Legs, bums and tums (LBT) is a different form of resistance class often equipment free – but adding a weight or a band can also effectively progress the exercises. There are a wide variety of exercises and training methods to target the individual muscles and to keep the class fun and different, but always challenging and effective.

All classes require an appropriate exercise mat (please bring your own mat to community classes).
Additional home kit ideally comprises weights, a resistance band, a loop band, a bender ball, a tennis ball and a pair of gliders.
If you require any advice or assistance with purchasing these, please contact Sarah who will be happy to help you.

Weights classes with Sarah on zoom are great. Sarah is very good at explaining each exercise and puts some harder options in, so you have a choice.

Bring the community feel into the home

You definitely bring the community feel into the home, Sarah. Also, plenty of accountability to keep showing up as it is easy to let the exercise habit slip, as I well know x
