I get lots of requests for Fitness Pilates classes that start later in the evening. This is why I created a new class called Pilates Express. It is a 30 minute session that will strengthen and tone your deep core (corset) muscles, improve your posture and de-stress/relax you. This class is £4 and there is no booking required.

It is a fab ‘add-on’ for Fit-mix clients who are welcome to stay for the extra 30 minutes for only£2. (£7.50 total for Fit-mix and Pilates express).

Ladies-Don’t be scared of weights! Weight training is essential to burn body fat. For every pound of muscle you gain, your body burns 30-50 additional calories per day. If you gain five pounds of muscle, you’ll be burning up to 250 additional calories per day. The cumulative effect is significant. That’s about 84,000 calories over the course of one year.

Most people are afraid of bulking up from weight training, but bulk is merely fat on top of muscle, so as you lose the fat, you’ll look lean and tight from your weight training – not bulky. Weight training also combats osteoporosis and is the shapely woman’s best kept secret.
