Online Group Classes
(These classes involve standing exercises and require you to move about unaided)
Focuses on the seven functional movements (push, pull, squat, hinge, rotate, lunge, gait) to improve your strength when performing activities in day-to-day life such as climbing stairs, sitting to standing and pushing doors open.
Our Bounce Back Class is specifically designed to target areas of weakness caused by common disease symptoms and side effects such as balance problems, footdrop, limited mobility, weakness on one side, joint instability and lack of coordination.
Our Core Control and stretch class involves exercises to specifically target the abdomen as well as flexibility and balance. It is important to bear in mind that our abdominal muscles are like any other muscle. They need to be worked but they also, they need to rest and relax. The workout involves movements that require you to get down onto the floor.
Strong and Balanced (Fri 12:00-12:45)
Our Strong and Balanced class involves performing isolated exercises, unilateral exercises and low impact exercises to effectively promote hypertrophy (an increase in muscle size). This style of training can be most beneficial in improving strength, improving bone density, helping people manage energy levels and helps isolate and correct muscle imbalances.
(These classes take place seated)
- Seated Strength and Balance (Friday 11:00 – 11:30)
