Classes can take a variety of formats but a typical one may involve shadow-boxing, skipping, hitting pads, kicking punchbags, press-ups, shuttle-runs and sit-ups. The classes are aimed at men and women of all ages and fitness standards in a fun, challenging and safe workout.
This work out style features short intervals of high intensity cardio, followed by a rest period. This class will burn those calories for hours after you finish.

Cycle Strength Training
Many riders, with limited time to train, have understandable reservations about giving valuable saddle time over to gym work and so neglect it. Cycling fitness should be viewed as a pyramid with your actual cycling performance just the capstone on top. It should be underpinned and supported by a broad base and subsequent tiers of all round conditioning. Cycling, on its own, in terms of movement and conditioning, is a very narrow activity and won’t give you that crucial all-round athletic broad base. Without this base, your layers above, including your cycling, will be limited and compromised. If you focus solely on cycling, your pyramid will be inverted, which isn’t stable or sustainable.”
Off-the-bike conditioning work will make you faster on the bike but it will also deliver a host of other benefits. It will slow and even reverse the loss of muscle mass associated with ageing, improving strength, health and facilitating weight control. It will improve bone health, specifically bone density, which is an issue even for Grand Tour riders. Finally, by being more robust and resilient, you will be less likely to injure yourself lifting the kids out of the car, carrying shopping or working in the garden. Less time laid up with an injury means more time out on your bike
