Fitness Classes and Their Advantages

Here at The Wembley Club, we have a plethora of fitness classes. Our fitness program is continuously growing! Between the amount of classes, and the many times throughout the day, there is always a time to get a good workout in! In this blog, we will list a few of classes we offer here, along with the many benefits that come with these classes!

1. Cycle AKA Spin: A group cycling class designed for all fitness levels.  This class involves various cycling drills such as hills, sprints and intervals that offer an exhilarating cardiovascular workout. 

There are many benefits to taking a spin class. To start off, not only does a Spin class benefit your muscles, but it’s also a great, low-impact, cardiovascular workout, which improves your blood flow, increases your stamina, boosts your mood, and prevents against chronic issues such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Spinning is one of those classes that everyone can do. It is a great introduction into the fitness world. It is also guaranteed to put you in a good mood! Our instructors work exceptionally hard to make sure each playlist is upbeat and fun, and they all correlate perfectly to the workout! 

2. HIIT, TRX, and Boxing: A group fitness class that incorporates interval training in both cardio and weights to maximize fat burning potential during and after class.  A variety of exercises incorporated including boxing and TRX. TRX is a form of suspension training using body weight to develop strength, flexibility and body stability all at the same time. Our boxing class is an exercise class that incorporates boxing with punching bags, targets, and punches and kicks into the air using gloves and light weights.  This class is a station based class incorporating cardio moves in addition to traditional boxing. Boxing strengthens muscles, builds cardiovascular endurance, and helps release stress!

Let’s start with the advantages of boxing! Boxing is a fantastic form of cardio! It is also a total-body workout. With all of the punching, kicking, and jumping, your body is using a lot of strength. Take this into account, most heavy bags weigh about 100 pounds. During a workout, you punch and kick the bag hundreds of times, which requires your upper and lower body, and your core to be engaged the entire time. 

Along with boxing, TRX is a great workout for cardiovascular strength , along with full body strength work. TRX is very low impact as well. While doing TRX, you are suspended in the air during the movements. This allows you to 

3. Barre: Movement class incorporating choreographed low impact, high intensity exercise improving your strength, posture, and flexibility.  Barre is a total body class using light weights, bands, small exercise balls, and mats.  

When you think Barre, think ballet/pilates/and yoga, all combined into one! Barre is a great class if you are wanting to tone your muscles, and better your posture. Barre focuses heavily on balance and strength, so your core is an integral part of the workout. Strengthening your core does not just mean flattening your stomach. The isometric movements also help strengthen the tiny muscles around your spine.
