Small group fitness class in Chelmsford

We’re proud to launch another round of our Bodyweight courses this week, as well as a new intermediate class! The Bodyweight for Beginners course is a first introduction into movement (lots more detail below!), while the Intermediate class builds on the Beginners course to offer even more variety, development and intensity.

The Intermediate Class will run on a Sunday morning at 10.30. Currently, there is only ONE REMAINING SPACE available for the next block, so please get in touch quick if you’d like to book in. We’ll be running the class right up until the Easter Holidays. If you’ve been to a general exercise class before, or perhaps currently take part in a Pilates or yoga class, this might be the perfect session to add some strength work into your weekly routine. Not sure if it’s appropriate for you? Just ask!

Bodyweight for Beginners: What you need to know

Take the first step on your fitness journey with our four week introduction to simple bodyweight exercises. You’ll learn how to safely perform a variety of exercises, giving you the tools you need to devise a home workout, return to the gym with confidence, or simply learn more about how to move.

This is not just a bodyweight exercise class where you follow the instructor and hope for the best. It will be you and three other people in our private studio, with plenty of opportunities for one-on-one coaching as you develop your skills over four sessions.

***Reserve your space by calling or texting 07736 054341***

For February/March 2018, we’ll be running a Wednesday evening course only, with FOUR spaces available
