Regular exercise will help protect you from chronic disease, improve your mood and lower your chances of injury. The older you are, the more you have to gain from exercise. All it takes is 30 minutes a day, three days a week. Join the Columbus Centre Senior Circuit Training classes.

 

The fine toning method implies leanness in the body, noticeable muscle definition and shape, but not significant muscle size, working the smallest of muscles for the best results!

Equipment required: Bands (thera, mini, or resista) and a mat

High Intensity Interval Training is a training technique in which you give all-out 100% effort through quick intense bursts of exercise followed by short, sometimes active recovery periods. HIIT gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time.

Equipment required: Dumbbells and a mat.

This allows the instructors to bring their own flavour and choice to the classes. It can be a Body Pump, Strength Circuit, Bootcamp, Yoga, BLT (Bum, Legs, and Thighs) or even a Cardio Dance class. Get ready for anything, and be ready to be challenged!
