Our Strength sessions focus on pure strength of the total body to live a healthy and pain free life.
We aim to ensure your training is well balanced and so we will ensure there is a balance between the weekly programs on offer, and on the different body parts to achieve total body strength and avoid injury.
The aim of these classes is to develop strength and to build lean muscle mass. In doing so we will help you burn fat, become pain free and avoid many diseases.
Core will always be included.
Dumbbells, Kettlebells, Barbells, TRX, Slam Balls, Bands, Plates, Body weight and a variety of other equipment may be used. The programs will vary as we believe in constantly stimulating the muscles in different ways.
This session is designed to work on your endurance and get your cardiovascular system in shape. As with all our sessions at GHFC, variety of programming from week to week is assured to continually challenge the body and mind … think rowing machines, air/assault bikes, ski erg machines, running / walking / jogging, skipping, boxing, bodyweight exercises. Core, balance and mobility will also be included.
The sessions will always be adjustable to any age and any fitness level (eg. jumps can be stepped, runs can be walked). Cardio is essential for heart health and disease prevention!!
Yoga offers strength and flexibility, while soothing your nerves and calming your mind.
We are strong supporters on the power of yoga, not just for your physical wellbeing, but also your mental wellbeing. It helps reduce stresses from your training, allowing for regeneration of muscles and organs.
Our yoga sessions are run by Amelia Smith and will normally include some breathing work, mindfulness and meditation.
Feel free to bring a rug and beanie and gloves in winter and rug up.
A group warm up will be followed by a variety of options – it may be hills, it may be stairs, it may be sprints, it may be intervals, it may be a longer run… you will always have a choice from a variety of programs on offer.
If you are training for a particular event, we will program accordingly.
The location will change regularly and will be advised via text to those booked in, the day before.
Think Hips, Glutes, Backs and Abs. Think activating your glutes, stabilising your hips, strengthening your abs and lower back. Think no more back pain!!
This session will focus on strengthening these critical body parts that are often neglected in mainstream programs. It will also include a mobility warm up using a foam roller and will often include the use of booty/micro bands so bring your own of both (or we sell both).
Saturday Super Sessions are designed to add variety to the end of your training week… Think Total Body Blast… it will always be fun… it will always have the ability to challenge you if that is what you are after… the program will always vary… it will always have some strength and some cardio and some functional movements… it will always be able to give you a major calorie burn!!
Think box jumps, weights, sleds, slam balls, ropes, sprints, and/or a few other choice pieces of equipment. Definitely one of our favourite programs.
The perfect way to kick off your weekend 🙂
