Aerobics is a rhythmic exercise with stretching, and strength routines, aiming to improve flexibility, tone and all over cardiovascular fitness. The classes are energetic, with upbeat music incorporating dance moves into all the routines involved.
There is also a low-impact Aerobics class, offered at a number of our centres, which allows people to secure the same benefits as a mainstream class, but with less intensity and impact.
What will an Aerobics class do for me?
An Aerobics class will improve overall stamina, cardiovascular fitness and help tone your body. As stretching is incorporated, flexibility is improved too and being an energetic, fun class, it will reduce stress levels too giving you the all round physical, social and mental health benefit. Age suitability is generally aimed at ages 16+ and 14+ if you attend with an adult.
Low impact aerobics will offer the same benefits, but is delivered in a way that makes it perfect for people who are returning to exercise after a long break, those who wish to use exercise as part of their recovery from illness or injury or to manage an ongoing condition or disability.
How long is an Aerobics class?
Classes range from 45-60 mins.
How often should I attend and what should I wear?
To gain the most out of an aerobics class, they should be attended twice a week in order to maintain fitness levels, and wear some loose fitting clothes which are easy to move in and trainers appropriate for an indoor fitness centre. Don't forget bring a bottle of water as this class is highly energetic, so it is very important to keep hydrated.
