Founders of Bodypass, Georgia and Carla reveal their A-Z of new and fun fitness classes! From Aerial yoga to Jazzercise and everything in between.

Aerial Yoga

Imagine moving freely in all directions of open space as your body floats in a hammock high above the city. Experience full body inversions and flowing spinal traction allowing a deep opening of the entire spine, and connective tissues of the body. Antigravity Yoga offers accessibility to those with physical limitations, but is loved by all as a portal into deeper spinal flexibility, and mind/body connection. 

Barre

Barre is a dynamic fusion of legendary techniques from Pilates, ballet and fitness set to pumping music. It provides a serious all over body workout with special attention to the dreaded problem areas – legs, bottom, thighs and arms! Barre classes are social, fun, energetic and can be easily modified for any fitness level. You do not require any ballet or pilates experience, just a fun attitude and a willingness to work hard.

HIIT

High Intensity Interval Training, or HIIT, is the perfect way to get your metabolism firing and torch MORE calories faster! It is based on longer periods of intense training followed by shorter periods of rest, which gets every fibre of your body working and thus, getting you fit and healthy, super fast! HIIT most often uses a range of full motion body weight exercises.

 Jazzercise

Jazzercise is a pulse-pounding, beat-pumping fitness program that gets you results…fast. It’s a calorie-torching, hip swiveling, Shakira’d-be-proud dance party with a hot playlist to distract you from the burn. Expect to feel results after just 3 classes, and expect to keep coming along. The average person sticks with Jazzercise for 7 years. Why? Because it’s fun and it works!

Megaformer 

The Megaformer is an advanced and redesigned twist on the traditional Pilates reformer that allows for a far greater range of compound movements, full range of motion and quick transition times between exercises in order to burn calories and build lean muscle, safely and effectively. The combinations of exercises possible on the Megaformer ensure you will never do the same routine twice, get bored or plateau.

Pole Fitness

Pole fitness offers a diverse range of benefits including a serious boost in self-confidence and a total body workout whilst being in a safe, supporting and encouraging environment. Pole fitness is a great way to get your adrenaline pumping as you work your way higher up the pole and progress on to more advanced moves.

Cardio Dance

Dance classes will get you laughing, burning calories and having fun. You will learn iconic moves from pop, hip hop, jazz – the lot and smash them out to a soundtrack of fun well known tracks. Let the music inspire you and start sweating it out!

Zumba

Zumba is an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party that’s moving millions of people toward joy and health.

Tips for getting out of an exercise rut

  1. Enlist a friend – Having a friend by your side is a huge motivator and forces you to stick to your workouts and classes.
  1. Try something different – There are so many fun and exciting classes you can try anything from paddle boarding to 80’s aerobics, so why not try a class you would never normally do. Not only will you reap the benefits of mixing up your exercise routine, but you will be surprised how much fun you have trying something new.
  1. Turn it into a lifestyle – Embrace the changes you are making and create a healthier lifestyle for yourself. Commit to a healthy work life balance by booking yourself into three to four classes a week, morning or night. Not only will you feel good for starting the day with some exercise or leaving work on time for a class, but it is also good for your wellbeing. On the weekend you can enjoy surfing lessons, or nourish your soul with some yoga or meditation.
