Makes your fitness sessions fun and enjoyable.

An initial consultation is required to ascertain information to enable us to create the appropriate programme for you. This consists of lifestyle questions, a PAR Q (physical activity readiness questionaire), and an exercise session to gauge your present level of fitness. Appointments are available at times to suit.

Circuit Training Studies have shown that Circuit Training is the most efficient way to enhance cardiovascular fitness and muscle. Here at Gym and Tonic Fitness our circuit classes are fun, enjoyable, effective and inclusive; all ages and abilities are welcome. Each class provides a whole body workout and can be easily customized for specificity. A 'circuit' is one completition of all prescribed exercises in the programme. When one circuit is complete, one begins the first exercise again for another circuit. Traditionally the time between exercises in circuit training is short and often with rapid movement to the next exercise.

Benefits of Circuit Training:

Classes can be mixed ages and abilities.

Structured and guided fitness sessions.

Motivation, encouragement and advice from the instructor.

Easy to follow.

Weight loss and Toning.

Motivation and encouragement from other participants.

Fun and enjoyable sessions.

To attend circuit classes you will be required to complete a PAR Q (physical activity readiness questionaire) prior to participating. Adult  classes run weekly. Booking is essential.

General Training This sessions allows the individual the ability to create their own session, whether to practice what they have learnt, make up their own programme or just get on the treadmill and run! Our resident trainer is always on hand for safety and is happy to give a little help or advice as and when needed.
