Runners and Cyclists monthly class

27 September 2012

 

 

By popular demand, thank YOU Becca,  we are running a NEW monthly Runners and Cylists monthly class.

Whether you're a part-time runner or cyclist or a heavy duty competitor, this once monthly class will assist you in fine tuning your body to help you become the best, most body-intelligent athlete you can be. Addressing the specific needs of both runners and cyclists, you will learn how to stretch safely and effectively while building strength, mobility and balance in the body in order to reduce the likelihood of injury, decrease recovery time and improve performance. Breathing techniques will also be taught to encourage efficiency in movement and improved stamina resulting in overall enhanced performance.

Clare is an experienced Yoga Teacher with a background in Sports Therapy. She has taught yoga and provided training advice to both casual and professional athletes and was responsible for writing the popular 'Yoga for Sport' series for Yoga Magazine, both in the UK and US. Her teaching focuses on helping people to understand their bodies and how they work, always in a creative and fun environment.

She says "often considered secondary to specific training, a good stretching regime should be a staple ingredient in any remotely sporty life and as yoga teaches you about your own body mechanics and allows you to learn invaluable skills beyond simply flexibility, it really is a no-brainer. In my experience it genuinely can be the difference between injury and health, good performance and bad performance - who wouldn't want that!?"

The price is £16 for 75 minutes, the dates are:

2012: 20th October and 17th November

2013: 19th January, 9th February and 20th April

We have an indulgent 2 hour Runners and Cyclists workshop with Lexie Willliamson on the 23rd March 2013 £25.

Meet the Director of Fitness

4 September 2012

 

Jenny Burrell , the Director of Fitness at Good Vibes, is the UK’s leading-edge fitness professional in the field of pre/post natal and women’s fitness.  With over a decade dedicated to empowering  clients to maintaining and improving their health, fitness and well being.

Jenny has been busy overhauling our Power Plate classes this summer and we think you will agree it has been quite a transformation! There is a liveliness to the classes and your faces as you come out and the results speak for themselves.

Here are her 7 golden rules to ensure that you burn more calories for hours after your workout:

  • Keep your workout short 20-30 mins will do the trick
  • Keep the intensity up – aim for an effort of 7- 8 out of 10
  • You need to get out of breath
  • You need to feel hot
  • You need to get a little sweaty
  • You need to feel your muscles burning
  • It’s best to perform whole body exercises as much as possible

Combining the benefits of Whole Body Vibration with the principles of metabolic training mean that client results are TOTALLY accelerated.

Book into the Advanced Power Plate classes and step up your fat loss.

Jenny teaches the midweek meditation at the Glow Yoga studio every Wednesday at 12pm (£4 for 30 mins, go back to work with a smile on your face!)
