  • High-intensity sport

  • Cardio-targeted fitness


Boxing is a high-impact, high-intensity sport, ideal for people who are looking to improve their total body strength in a fun, exciting (and slightly addictive) way!

  • Improves posture
  • Increases lung health

  • Rapid bursts of exercise
  • Repetitive sets
  • Weights & body weight


One of the latest fitness crazes, HIIT (high intensity interval training) claims to deliver a healthier and fitter you in minimal time. The aim of the game is to endure quick and intense bursts of exercise, followed by short recovery periods; this helps to raise your heart rate and burn fat in a shorter amount of time. All fitness classes differ in repetitions and exercises, using both weights and body weight to achieve maximum results.


  • Muscle strength & core
  • Overall toning
  • Improved flexibility


Pioneered as a way to encourage injured athletes to return to exercise, Pilates helps to lengthen and stretch muscles in a safe and balanced way. Targeting your abdominal muscles, Pilates is great for your core, helping to improve muscular strength and flexibility. Like yoga, this form of exercise improves your posture and balance through a variety of movements.


  • Combination of cardio, weights & core
  • Performed by professional athletes
  • Average class: 45-60 minutes


CrossFit is an intense fitness regime, which combines various aspects of cardio, weights and core training to deliver a full-body workout. This type of training is extremely popular with professional athletes, police academies and tactical operation teams, as well as individuals looking to burn fat, increase muscle mass and improve their overall health. Most fitness classes run for 45-60 minutes and involve a number of repetitive circuits.
