Circuit training has long been used to improve strength and fitness. The objectives of circuit training are to increase muscle strength, endurance, flexibility and coordination.
You won’t be bored when you do circuit training. This workout gets your heart rate up and strengthens your muscles at the same time.
You’ll move through exercise stations to work different muscle groups with little to no rest between stations. Each station has a different exercise. You may do a strength exercise or a cardio exercise for 30 -60 seconds, then move on to the next exercise station.
We believe that the most motivating circuit sessions involve small groups, allowing beginners to be guided by more experienced individuals, as well as benefiting from the supervision of the instructor. So we only have 10 participants in any one class
There are several good reasons to do circuit training:
• Greater cardiovascular endurance
When performed consistently over 8-12 weeks, circuit training can’ result in greater stamina and overall fitness.
• Increased muscular endurance and strength
Resistance training overloads muscles for improved endurance and strength. Strength training is particularly important for women, who lose muscle mass of 1% per year in their 30s and 40s, along with those aged 65 to help minimize bone loss.
• Improved body composition and higher metabolism
Routine strength training builds muscles that burn more calories both during exercise and at rest (basal metabolic rate) for a higher metabolism, which helps with fat loss and weight management.
Can anybody do it?
Yes anybody can do it. It is a common misconception that circuit training is only for fit people. Circuit training can be tailored to suit everybody. Because we keep the classes small all exercises can be modified to the individual’s fitness level.
As you get fitter, the amount you can do in a given time will increase.
