Pilates classes focus on strength, muscle toning, body control, flexibility - with the main emphasis on core strength. It involves a series of controlled movements that engage both your body and mind.
Pilates is based on 6 principles
Centering: strengthening the "core" muscles of the body, which include the abdominals, pelvis, buttocks and back.
Concentration: brings your full attention to the form and execution of each exercise.
Control: learning to use only the muscles necessary to perform a task, while the rest of the body relaxes.
Precision: every movement has a purpose - this results in a "less is more," and "quality over quantity" philosophy.
Breath: movement with proper breathing, resulting in enhanced lung capacity, overall coordination and facilitating a stronger mind-body connection.
Flow: every movement is performed with the grace and ease of a dancer.
Body conditioning aims to enhance your body’s own natural physical capacity, capabilities and strengths using a balanced exercise program in a class setting.

Weight training is a form of exercise used for developing the strength and size of skeletal muscles. Properly performed, weight training can provide significant functional benefits and improvement in overall health and wellbeing.
Weight training uses a variety of equipment and exercise modalities. The benefits of weight training include greater
muscular strength, improved muscle tone, and appearance, increased endurance, enhanced bone density, and improved cardiovascular fitness.
Spinning is a form of exercise that involves using a stationary exercise bicycle in a class setting. A typical class involves an instructor in front of the class who leads the participants in a number of different types of cycling.
These routines are designed to simulate terrain and situations encountered in actual bicycle rides, including hill climbs, sprints, and interval training. The instructor uses music and enthusiastic coaching to motivate the students to work harder.
HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short recovery periods.
