The classes consist of interval training, where cardio and strength exercises are quickly alternated. The short breaks in between the exercises are just enough to take a few deep breaths before continuing, so there will be maximum effort required. You are working out with your own body and therefor own body weight. The classes focus on fat burning and resistance training. There is a big variation in classes and you won’t be making use of weights or complex choreographies. This way you’ll increase muscle, flexibility and maximal fat burning rate.


All weights and Dynabands are provided by the sports centre. You have to bring your own sports mat. We recommend you to wear comfortable, solid indoor sports shoes, which are not worn outside and wear comfortable clothes.
