Body weight training — using only your body weight for resistance — can be an effective type of strength training and a good addition to your current activity routine. Bodyweight training doesn't require a dedicated gym and minimal equipment so you can fit a workout wherever you are.
WHAT IS IT?
We combine elements of traditional bodyweight strength exercises, circuit training and HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) to create a programme designed to build strength and endurance throughout your body, whilst elevating your heart rate for cardiovascular health and general fitness. We make sure the programmes are “balanced” to support good posture by working all areas of the body, including your core. You will learn the fundamental exercises and movements required for other forms of exercise as well as develop strength to handle day-to-day tasks with ease. Our coaches will instruct you on safe and correct technique and change or adapt any exercises to suit you.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
The benefits of MBST include building strength throughout your whole body, improving muscular endurance, improved muscle tone and it works extremely well as part of a weight/fat-loss programme.
Ladies: don't be concerned by the “strength” element - it doesn't mean it will make you bulk up! Read this article on why strength training is so good for women.
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL SESSION LOOK LIKE?
There are two bodyweight strength training sessions each week. Each session starts with a 5-minute warm-up targeting all body parts. In the session we'll complete 4 rounds of 6-7 exercises that include lower body, upper body and core exercises.
But don't worry every session can be modified to your specific needs. We also trust that if you have any concerns about certain exercises/movements that you'll highlight that to us so we can make amendments.
