Bank holiday weekends are a nice little breather, a chance to unwind and de stress.
If all of that relaxing went hand in hand with a little too much over indulgence, don't despair, today is the day to get back on it and refocus on your fitness goals.
Getting your heart rate elevated during your workout session is a great way to kick start your metabolism. Even better is alternating intense bursts of exercise with short rest periods, which means that you continue to burn even more calories long after your workout.
HIIT training doesn't only help with fat loss, it has many health benefits too. Raising your heart rate during exercise strengthens your heart, burns fat while building and maintaining muscle tone. Your metabolism will be kicked up a notch, plus your mood will be boosted by the endorphins released during your workout.
We have a great range of high energy classes, guaranteed to raise your heart rate and get you sweating, plus, whether you have 25 minutes or an hour, we have a class that will fit into your schedule, so no excuses!

Our one day "Breath for Life" Workshop with experienced guest teacher Ben Wolff is coming up this weekend. Open to everyone interested in breath work, as well as teachers, trainee teachers, experienced students/anyone interested in breath work.
Ben will share with you the most important discoveries in breath research. Neuroscience shows that there is a breath rate for you that’s your own personal sweet spot; where head, heart, lungs and the major organs of the body all resonate and a coherent, syncronised rhythm waves and pulses throughout your system. This brings with it a harmony, wellness and great feelings of relaxation, zest, energy and control; quite unlike anything you’re currently experiencing. It’s simple. It’s effective. It’s life changing. Sunday 8th May 2016, 10am - 5pm (Includes a 1-hour lunch break.). Held at the Fitzrovia Studio. Book in.
