Inside Training Outside

Posted by & filed under Fitness.

Although ‘the beast from the east’ extended our chilly winter all the way into the early days of March, those chilly winds seem to be a thing of the past. The temperature is on the rise and it seems to be getting lighter by the day, it’s no wonder that our Inside Out fitness classes have been growing in popularity.

Maximise that feel good factor from your workout and take your exercise session outside. Not only are you getting a great workout, you’re benefiting from the fresh air and (fingers crossed) some sunny weather to really boost those endorphins. If you can’t make one of our gym team’s HIIT based circuit classes, don’t worry! Our gym staff will be adding new workouts to our display boards to keep you topped up with great ideas to add to your workouts every day. Training in our outdoor functional fitness zone (Inside Out) also means you’ve got the extra space and equipment making training with a partner a lot easier than in the gym when it gets busy!

We asked Lewis, one of our gym staff what his favourite HIIT workout is and why he thinks everyone should try and get inside out!

“I’d have to say my favourite HIIT workout would be the descending pyramid, you start off with 10 reps of a circuit of exercises and each round knock off a rep all the way down to 1 rep of each. It’s the mentality of it, starting off difficult and getting easier as each round finishes. The Inside Out classes allows for plenty of variation for your training with the space and different equipment available to keep it fresh“- Lewis Goodman, gym staff.

If you’re looking to mix up your weekly workout routine, jump in on one of our 7am morning HIIT class before work or the 12pm lunch time circuit classes, we know you won’t regret it! Take a look at our timetable for information.
