The right priorities
FunFit’s mind and body classes are a great workout and lots of fun. In today’s busy world the ability to calm your breath and focus your mind is the best study aide you can offer.
Our mind and body classes develop the following fundamental areas:
- cardiovascular fitness
- core stability
- body awareness
Through practicing yoga, one can hope to achieve the integration of body, mind and spirit. Rather than being about attempting difficult poses and tying the body in a knot, yoga is the practice of exercise, breathing and meditation. With regular yoga practice improved health can be achieved as the exercises improve circulation and strengthen the respiratory system.
FunFit’s yoga teachers design classes specifically for the age group they are teaching. For younger students, many fun games are included in the session to maintain their attention as it is more difficult for children to quieten the body and the mind. It is amazing to see just how calm participant’s energy levels are throughout and after a FunFit yoga class. This makes for a fun and accessible class for all ages.
Developed in the 1920’s and increasingly popular today, the pilates method aims to create a balance in the body and involves a series of exercises derived from callisthenics, ballet and yoga. During a pilates session, different exercises are performed in repetitions of 5-10 with a concentration on breathing and abdominal control. Core stability is essential for the body as it helps our posture, prevents injury and is beneficial to all sporting activities we are involved in.
If it’s core stability you need to develop, pilates is the activity for you! Students leave this class with a feeling of satisfaction at having completed a thorough but not overwhelming training session.
The latest craze to hit the gyms, this highly energized dance/aerobic workout is taking the fitness world by storm. Zumba™ fuses Latin dancing with aerobics and is a great cardiovascular workout. Students don’t realise how fit they’re getting as they shake it to the beat!
Drawing from traditional aerobics movements, these classes are high energy and a great cardiovascular workout. FunFit’s aerobics classes are modified to suit different age groups and include fun games for younger students and more complicated routines for older students.
In our aerobics classes a routine will be gradually taught by adding different movements together. The students can then perform the routine on their own for the class or even the whole school!
This high energy activity combines aerobic exercise with martial arts. Participants perform martial arts exercises such as punches and kicks to their favourite music. Our qualified teachers will provide instruction on correct technique and like an aerobics class, participants are taught routines by adding different movements together. They may also be led through boxing circuits and fun martial arts games and activities. This is a non-contact energetic activity that students really get a kick out of!
We now offer a variety of martial arts forms from Kung Fu to Karate to Wing Chun. Our martial arts classes are safe, non-violent and of course…. fun! Our KickFit classes have been very successful and are a great cardiovascular workout but if you would like more of a focus on martial arts technique and self defence, book us for a martial arts class.
