Help increase your strength and aerobic fitness levels with this true hybrid class with the use of individual and teamed circuit based sessions. Multiple circuit stations combine resistance training with muscular endurance and strength building. Pick your starting station and your instructor will define how long you will perform each exercise for before you move to the next station. Each class is built with progressions and regressions so is suitable for all fitness levels and everyone gets a great workout. Classes often combine body weight exercises with weighted resistance equipment and mix aerobic and strength based moves. A typical session will focus on different parts of the body, including…
UPPER BODY - This includes all muscles in the arms, shoulders and the upper back.
CORE AND TRUNK - The core muscles are essential, not just in achieving a toned stomach but also to your balance
LOWER BODY - The muscles targeted in this section include the glutes, hamstrings, quads and calves.
WHAT WILL I GET FROM THE BOOTCAMP?
Circuit training is considered by many to be one of the most effective workouts out there. And while it can be done on your own, working out so hard in a group keeps you motivated and can be more fun than going it alone.
HIGH-INTENSITY FAT BURNING - Circuit training is a form of high-intensity interval training (HIIT), which focuses on combining short periods of intense exercise with recovery periods in between. This style of workout has not only proven to be more effective at burning fat, but the incorporation of weights and resistance training keeps your muscles working throughout, so you only lose fat.
KICKSTART YOUR METABOLISM - Due to the nature of circuit training, a single class will kick your metabolism into a high gear. You’ll not only find that you burn more calories in the same time compared to steady cardio, but you’ll also experience an afterburn effect that will keep the calories burning long after you finish the class.
YOUR HEART GETS HEALTHIER - Although a lot of people may feel as though they are pushing themselves to their limits during exercise, the truth is that not many people actually reach their anaerobic zone. An extreme form of exercise, like circuit training, pushes you into this zone and that gets your cardiovascular system working harder than ever.

The sessions will be run by Fraser Preston who served as a section commander in the British Army’s Parachute Regiment for over 10 years with two combat tours of Afghanistan. Fraser received the Top student award from the Army School of Physical Training in 2013 competing against 104 students. This allowed him to train his fellow soldiers to a level of fitness both physically and most importantly mentally superior to others for the conflict zones of Afghanistan, supporting them to push their minds and bodies to a level in which many believe they cannot achieve. He is an expert in military influenced Bootcamps and can create challenging but achievable workouts in every environment and believes to his core that everything can be achieved as a team and likes to incorporate this into his camps. Fraser also assisted soldiers in reaching their optimum level of fitness specific to sports. He is a keen football enthusiast who competed at the Army national level with a coaching background. One of his most enjoyable roles would be coaching and training injured soldiers during the rehabilitation process which is what led him to completing his level 3 Diploma in fitness instructing and personal training with Premier Global NASM after leaving the Parachute Regiment in February 2017
