HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)

Why HIIT?

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is an intense workout combining core strength, power, endurance and cardiovascular effort. HIIT classes are short but intense so you can easily fit them around your busy schedule.

Is HIIT for me?

HIT is a great workout for you if you are used to exercising at moderate levels, and are injury free. If you are looking to step your exercise up a gear the HIIT is perfect.

What can I expect?

Expect this class to be hot and sweaty! Your instructor will combine intervals of high intensity with core work you may recognise from your Pilates class. It will be varied, fast and fun! But it will be over before you know it!

What do I need to bring?

We will provide all equipment, but you will need to wear trainers. Bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated.

Barre

Why Barre?

We have adapted traditional Barre workouts to design our very own Pilates Plus concept. We combine principles from our Pilates classes with ballet and yoga foundations to bring you a class which will make you feel like you have really worked out! If you want to add some cardio to your Pilates routine then Barre is for you!

Is Barre for me?

Pilates Plus Barre can be modified for everyone, but is not recommended for those with a recent injury. You should have a reasonable standard of fitness.

What can I expect?

Barre is dance based so you can expect some up beat tunes! As its name suggests, much of the class is at the Barre, and you will work your heart and lungs, as well as Barre being a whole body workout.

What should I bring?

All equipment is provided. Dress as you would for a Pilates class. Bring a bottle of water to keep hydrated!

Nordic Walking

Why Nordic Walking?

Nordic Walking combines the principles of Pilates, upright, outside and with poles! You will be instructed by our Nordic Walking expert Sara, who is also a physiotherapist. Sara varies the routes across many of the beautiful parks and outdoor spaces in the South of Edinburgh. Nordic Walking burns more calories than regular walking.

Is a Nordic Walking for me?

Nordic Walking is a great way to exercise outdoors in beautiful surroundings. If you are keen to work your cardiovascular system and burn calories then this is a great option. Nordic Walking can be used as a weight loss tool.

What can I expect?

The class will be a group walk, with instruction on how to use the poles correctly and with the most efficiency, using Nordic Walking techniques.

What do I need to bring?

We have a small supply of poles for hire, or you can provide your own. You will need a sturdy pair of outdoor shoes/walking boots, and will need to dress for any weather!
