These exercise classes bring together people from all walks of life to train in a friendly environment in my private studio gym near central Christchurch. In these fitness classes I help build your confidence in not only movement, balance and flexibility but also to gain an understanding of how correct movement impacts health and wellness.

These small exercise classes allows the trainer ensure your are performing the movements correctly to reduce any injuries by incorrect technique.

Stretching is also an important part of any exercise routine in both the warm up phase and cool down phase, knowing which type of stretching to do is vital to your performance you are training for.

Nordic Walking Class in Christchurch

Christchurch is a great place to learn Nordic Walking with all the green space available close to the central city.

Nordic Walking is a form of fitness walking using specially designed poles and a learned technique to produce a low impact, high results, total body workout.

 

The pushing action of the poles serve as a resistance exercise for the upper body, thus Nordic Walking increases cardio output, burns more calories and activates more muscles compared to normal walking.

Rope Flow

  • People of all ages and fitness levels can do this.

  • Rope flow lets you use your full range of motion to improve coordination, balance, endurance, and flexibility.

  • It involves moving your weighted rope in different patterns for fitness, stress relief, recovery.

  • What are the principles of Rope Flow

  • Using patterns based in figure 8 hand movements, and rotation of the upper body, you roll the rope around you as opposed to jumping through it. 

  • This teaches your body to dynamically unify the force production from the floor to your hands through both upper and lower limbs, as well as left and right sides.
