We have two classes running today (Tuesday):- bookwhen.com/gsfitness Sweaty Mums 10am PiYo 6.30pm
PiYo is a total-body fitness system designed to whip you into shape from head to toe. It combines the practices of Pilates and Yoga to help you build strength, lose weight, increase flexibility and have a great time doing it. PiYo was designed for people who want the mind-body benefits of a Yoga or Pilates workout, but with a higher-energy, higher-sweat class.
Unlike most yoga and Pilates classes, PiYo classes are aerobic. PiYo classes link together dynamic, constantly flowing exercises to increase your heart rate, burn calories and make you sweat. These classes are low-impact but high energy, with moves and poses taken from traditional Yoga, Pilates and body conditioning exercises which are linked together in a new way to add more cardio. These moves include flowing in and out of Warrior pose, stepping in and out of lunges, and flowing through traditional Sun Salutations.
The PiYo system is also a total-body strengthening workout. Poses such as plank, side plank, core work, lunges and squats are key elements to engage the large and small muscles of the body and by working in and out of these poses, you build strength using your own body's resistance. In this style of class, your muscles are worked to be toned and sculpted, but not bulky as in some classes.
These classes not only build muscle and help you increase your cardiac health, but they also have additional benefits as the poses and moves help add flexibility to the muscles. The exercises also help to increase the range of motion in your joints, improve your balance, improve energy and reduce stress, for a total amped up mind and body workout. #gsfitness #fit2019 #auchterarder #communityfitness - 2 days ago
