We celebrated the arrival of Spring on the first of September by adding a Boot Camp workout to our normal program. It turned out to be a great success! Adding some cardio exercises to our Pilates group classes was an excellent way to get rid of that extra kilo or two that settled on our bodies during the cold winter months. For their hard work, the ladies and gentlemen were rewarded with a complimentary healthy takeaway smoothie at the end of the session. We have decided to add a Boot Camp session regularly to our program on request from delighted clients. Let the change begin!
The paving is finally completed, and the increased parking space makes arriving and leaving much easier. Steady work is being done on the second Studio, and we are aiming to get that finalised as soon as possible. We want to thank you all for your patience during these alterations.
Please be reminded that we offer health assessments to all our clients.
– Body Fat %: Body fat percentage refers to the amount of body fat mass in regards to the total body weight expressed as a percentage.
– Visceral Fat: Visceral fat is the fat in the internal abdominal cavity surrounding the vital organs in the trunk (abdominal) area. This is nasty fat that builds up around your organs. It is one of the hallmarks of metabolic syndrome and a proven precursor to diabetes and heart disease. Ensure that you have healthy visceral fat levels will reduce the risk of certain diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure and the onset of type 2 diabetes.
Skeletal Muscle %: Muscle is divided into muscles of internal organs such as the heart and skeletal muscle attached to bones used to move the body. Skeletal muscle can be increased through exercise and other activities. Increasing the skeletal muscle % means that your body can burn energy more easily and is less likely to turn to fat, producing an energetic lifestyle.
Let’s look forward to the new season that has finally arrived in all its glory. We promise to continue to work hard to help you maintain and achieve your fitness goals. Remember, the person who really wants to do something finds a way, while the others find an excuse.
