Each class lasts an hour and consists of a mix of strength and cardio training in a group setting.
The strength & conditioning class that I take on a Monday evening (7-8pm) and Saturday morning (10-11am) is put together to provide you with a total body strength workout, while also specifically targeting your core and working on mobility towards the beginning and end of the class.
The first 10 minutes of the class is dedicated to a thorough warmup - focusing on getting our different muscle groups warm and stretched while also mobilising our joints to help us achieve a greater range of motion in all of our exercises in the main part of the workout.
The main phase of the workout takes place for approximately 30 minutes - working through a rep range of 6-8 to stimulate our muscles for strength gain. I also partner the exercises with a specific core exercise to allow for active recovery between sets.
This is the conditioning part of the workout. After the main phase, I provide the class with a finisher where we focus on elevating the heart rate.
Finally, we cool down with some stretching/mobility work to help our muscles recover faster.
My class structure is always a surprise for members. Somedays its a full strength based finishing with a Crossfit style conditioning WOD, somedays its a full 30 min conditioning circuit style with a good 10 min warmup and 10 min cool down. somedays its a mix of both(superset of a strength and conditioning exercise at each station).
