Virgin Active SA have welcomed in the new year by spearheading the ‘Mix It Up’ campaign, an initiative to get gym bunnies, couch potatoes and elliptical queens alike on the move and inspired for the year. To help you get back into the rhythm of work, play and exercise, Virgin Active SA have introduced a number of new classes to their schedules, as well as reviving a couple of old favourites. So, whether you are looking for an entirely new fitness regime or just a small change to your Tuesday morning workouts, there should be a class at your gym to fit your needs.
Here are our top picks of the new group classes and activities available at Virgin Active SA gyms across Johannesburg:
This is a 400-calorie burning workout disguised as a dance party, what more could you want out of an exercise class? Just Dance classes at Virgin Active are high intensity, cardiovascular workouts tailored to all fitness levels. This class is all about having a good time while working up a sweat. If you’re the type who hates mundane exercise regiments, then this is the class for you.
Combining the best of yoga and pilates, the Nova class offers ultimate strength and flexibility. You get all the mental health benefits of these two super popular workouts, too. So, not only will you leave feeling stronger and more supple, you’ll also leave with a refreshed mind. This is the ideal class for stressed out and tired yogis looking to change things up a bit.
Sometimes, all you need is a good, fast-paced spin class with friends. Why not challenge yourself and some buddies this year to attend regular cycle classes at your favourite Virgin Active gym? Peddle along to the epic playlist and sweat it out, burning an insane amount of calories along the way. Once you have mastered ‘the burn’, this is likely to become your first choice of fitness class.
Boxing is one of the best all-round fitness regiments, as it works muscles you didn’t even know you had! Plus, a good boxing workout can leave you feeling stronger, both physically and mentally, preparing you to tackle the world with utter confidence. With nine rounds of high intensity training, Virgin Active’s Rumble class is the perfect boxing regime to whip you into shape in no time.
Finally, we have the super champ of all fitness classes at Virgin Active gyms. For those of you not familiar with The Grid, it is a 30-minute power packed workout which focuses on six fundamental movements used in everyday life. Teaching you how to move quickly and with accuracy to avoid injury, this is a must-try workout for the new year. Challenge yourself by signing up for the Grid Games – a national competition which will see one guy and one lady crowned The Grid regional champions. Finalists could then stand the chance to compete in The Grid Games Global Finals against participants from the United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore, Thailand and Italy! So, what are you waiting for?
