Regular Les Mills programmes are available, and there are exciting new classes to try, from Reformer Pilates to Barre, plus indoor cycling in the 270° Immersive Fitness Studio, where you can soar through glaciers and galaxies while breaking a sweat!
Small Group Training
Who says a workout has to be boring? The soon-to-be launched Small Group Training (SGT) is one fab way to switch up your exercise routine. The concept is simple – it involves doing functional movements at high intensity with a group of like-minded individuals who are looking for a fun and effective workout. As you evolve and improve, so does the training, thus preventing plateaus. And let’s be honest – it’s way more enjoyable working out in a group. Read on for a breakdown on the four SGT classes offered at Pure Fitness.
#1 SGT Explosive
As the name suggests, this training is all about explosive movements. You’ll work on your reactive timing and plyometric movements – where muscles exert maximum force in short intervals of time. The goal is to increase power, speed and agility, allowing you to jump higher, sprint faster and respond more quickly to whatever life throws your way.
#2 SGT Strength
Strength is a fundamental part of all training regimens. This class works on heavy load, range and control through a variety of exercises. Focusing on major muscle groups, the training uses forces to increase maximum strength and muscular endurance. The end goal? Work to maximum fatigue while being under constant challenge to build lean muscle, tone and create definition.
#3 SGT Athletic Endurance
The Athletic Endurance class is for those who want a constant, sustained level of intensity and challenge. Using longer durations of exercises and higher number of repetitions, the sessions will test and eventually enhance your muscular and cardiovascular stamina to boost athletic performance. Exercises are cardio-based with some weight-training incorporated. Those training for trail runs, marathons or any other long distance disciplines will find this a great complement to their current regime.
#4 SGT Core
Core strength is a vital part of everyday movement, functionality and performance. This class focuses on improving all aspects of your core strength – from the mid-chest to the mid-thigh area – and works the front, sides and back of the body. Not only will this help to prevent injuries and improve your posture, it’s also great training for those working on their overall fitness.
