Floor work can help build on major areas of fitness such as core strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility. To achieve this, you will need to include compound exercises which rely on the coordinated actions of several muscle groups, and isolation exercises which rely on working one muscle group at any time.
We offer a range of equipment to help you with your floor work such as mats, bosu balls, gym balls, dumbells, kettle bells, and medicine balls.
Cardio is important for burning calories and helping you to lose weight, making your heart strong, increasing lung capacity, reducing risk of heart attack, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. Not only does it do all this, but it helps you to feel good and sleep better.
We offer a range of cardiovascular machinery including two treadmills, four bicycles, an elyptical, a step machine, a rower and a range of skipping ropes.
