Course Overview

Effective, enjoyable classes for all ages and abilities. Exercises to improve/maintain fitness. Work at your own level. There is a continuation course next term.

Course Content

You will follow this basic pattern for each session:- A warm up, consisting of a pulse raiser, mobiliser and short stretch, which prepares the body for the aerobic section. The aerobic section is a mixture of high and low impact exercises. The tutor will show you alternatives to exercises so that you can work at your own level. The cool down includes exercises to lower your pulse, muscular strength and endurance exercises (for the tummy, thighs and improved posture)then a cool down stretch and a remobiliser to finish. Routines will be varied to incorporate different styles (cha cha cha, charleston, modern, jazz, pop). Enjoying moving is important. Wear comfortable clothes (tights and leotard or T-shirt, track suit bottoms etc.) Please bring a mat for floor work (can be purchased at Argos or Sports Shop) or a thick towel or blanket. Aerobic shoes must be worn to provide support and absorb shock. Bring bottled water or something to drink to re-hydrate the body.
