The session begins with a warm-up to ensure your body is ready for exercise and to elevate the heart rate before starting the main session. During the class you will be involved in a combination of individual and group work with a little bit of competition and fun thrown in, making it varied and interesting. Many of the exercises are based around daily functions to help improve these abilities whilst also improving your overall fitness. Before finishing you will be taken through a range of stretches to help improve your flexibility with the potential of increasing your range of movement over time.
