For those accustomed to solo workouts, the sight of people eagerly streaming into a group fitness room can spark curiosity and intrigue. What goes on in there? Is it some sort of secret society? Why do people look so happy when they come out?

Far from being a secret society, behind the door is a gateway to a whole new world of fitness and fun waiting to be explored. Far from intimidating, group fitness classes offer a vibrant and supportive community where individuals come together, breaking a sweat while enjoying the camaraderie and shared motivation that transform exercise from a routine to an exhilarating adventure.

So if you a regular at the gym, faithfully hitting the treadmill or lifting weights, but feeling a bit stuck in your fitness routine, then maybe it's time to step out of your comfort zone and embrace the dynamic world of group fitness classes.

There are over 350 classes to try so you are guaranteed to find one which suits your goals, level of fitness or experience:

  • For individuals accustomed to solitary weightlifting sessions, the transition to a more dynamic and engaging experience can be seamlessly achieved by swapping out the familiar weights routine for a BODYPUMP class.
  • For those who typically swim laps in isolation, the aquatic solitude can be replaced with the spirited atmosphere of an Aqua fitness class. These classes not only offer cardiovascular benefits but also turn the pool into a social hub, where participants share the joy of movement and buoyant camaraderie, creating a refreshing departure from the solitary laps routine.
  • If you like nothing more than jumping on the cardio machines, then take your cardio game to another level with a high energy and challenging BODYATTACK or BODYCOMBAT class.
  • If you love pedal power and getting on the stationary bike, then you have to try a cycle class such as SPRINT or RPM where motivating music and inspirational instructors take you on the ride of your life.
  • If your ultimate desire is to concentrate on the gym machines, immerse yourself in the invigorating experience of a 360 Functional class. Crafted with your fitness preferences in mind, these classes seamlessly integrates machine-based exercises, ensuring a comprehensive and dynamic workout that targets specific muscle groups. From strength-building routines to HIIT challenges, the 360 Functional classes offer a holistic approach to fitness within a supportive group setting.
  • If you like nothing more than relaxing by the pool, then consider a mind and body class such as Pilates or Yoga where you will focus on better posture, flexibility, strength and balance.
  • If the idea of joining a group fitness class seems daunting due to concerns about age, fear not - our GOLD classes are here to redefine your fitness journey. Specifically designed for seniors, these classes cater to a range of abilities and fitness levels, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.

All these classes offer a transformative experience that can reignite your passion for fitness.
