Rec-Xercise is a fitness class which takes place on Furzedown Rec and also online through Zoom. The classes consist of various training methods such as fast & challenging HIIT training, strength / resistance training and fat burning intervals. The exercises are mostly based around the 5 basic movement patterns (squat, lunge, deadlift, push and pull) which simulate the way we get around in daily life. These movement patterns mean you’ll be using nearly all the muscles in your body, therefore expending maximum energy and burning maximum calories.
Rec-Xercise is aimed at everyone, from women (and men!) who are new to exercise, to fitness fanatics.
Post natal mums are welcome too (as well as their little ones!) but if you are newly post natal (have had a baby in the last 6 months) then please drop Anya an email first at firstname.lastname@example.org so she can go over a few questions with you and check that the class would be suitable for your needs.
The classes are capped at 14 people maximum to ensure that you receive a quality workout and that exercises are carried out with the correct form, avoiding risk of injury.
Rec-Xercise is on:- Tuesdays 9.15am, Wednesday's 6.30am*, Thursdays 9.15am & Saturdays 8am
*The Wednesday 6.30am class takes place online on Zoom. The beauty of doing online fitness classes like this is that you can do them anywhere you like! From your garden or from the comfort of your own bedroom. Unlike following videos on YouTube, Anya can see how you carry out the exercises and correct your form if needed but also she can offer you regressions of exercises if they’re too difficult, or progressions if you find them too easy! This class is a 45 minute mixture of strength based exercises as well as fast and challenging HIIT. Some of the benefits of high intensity interval training are:-
Both calorie & fat burning during the class and for hours afterwards
Helps build endurance
Good for heart health
Will increase aerobic capacity
It is challenging but also super fun! The online classes are slightly cheaper, please visit bookwhen.com/recxercise for details.
