Reconnect & reshape

Sometimes there is nothing more motivating than working out in a group of people of all fitness levels and abilities. When running on the treadmill on your own just doesn't cut it, group exercise is the way to go. We have a wide range of exercise classes available focusing on different areas throughout the body to help you get the most out of your workout. Take a look below for information on our current classes.
