Class Review: Suspension Training/TRX

What is Suspension Training?

 

There are so many way to stay fit and healthy now days…in fact sometimes there are so many classes it is hard to know what they are.

 

At studio one we offer the best in yoga, fitness and pilates so you know each and every class is of the highest standard and effective.

 

New to our range of classes is suspension training, this fun yet challenging way to build core strength and tone.  Many will be asking what is it? 

 
“Personally I love suspension training, I love the fact you balance in straps and find the versatility of classes means I am always challenged. My fav is any exercise when I have my feet in the straps.  Even just holding a plank burns….I can just feel my bodying toning and getting stronger each class.”

 

Born in the Navy SEALs, Suspension Training bodyweight exercise develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously.

 

The straps are attached to the studio ceiling and leverages gravity and the user’s body weight to create a challenging workout.  As you are in control of your straps you can make the class as challenging as you wish.    

 

This class will honestly challenge anyone that comes, within an enjoyable environment.  The small size of class will result in personal attention and ensure that it is not intimidating.  Give it a go – trust me you will love it!!

 

 

Why do it?

 

    This is a fast, effective total-body workout

    Helps build a rock-solid core

    Increases muscular endurance

    Improves cardio

    Low impact but makes you sweat

    It is fun and different

    Anyone can do it!

Class Review: Real Men Do Barre! (Dance and Pilates Class)

Men love to build muscle and run - do manly things.  "Manly things" is not the typical phrase you would hear in a barre studio......well you would in ours.

The fitness regime of a man can focus primarily round weights and cardio, very open their minds to the benefits offered from other forms of fitness.  This is not a rant, this is an observation that men like weights and football not dance and yoga. 

Whilst I continue my campaign to get my boyfriend into the studio to take a yoga or barre class our very own boxing instructor Simon Collins rushed past me, quick as a whippet into Rosie's Barre class.  

 

"I wanted a workout that challenges me and improves my flexibility, barre offered me this and so much more.  It improved my posture, targeted every muscle group, it was low impact and fun!"

 

Given the way he looked afterwards, I would also say it was quite sweaty!  He needed to sit down for 15mins after.
