Interview with Marlon

Doesn't lifting weights make you big & bulky?


Contrary to popular belief, no, not necessarily!  Especially when it comes to Body Pump!  You see Body Pump is a high repetition, low to moderate weight based form of strength training, which by it's nature, produces lean and toned physiques, as opposed to big and bulky physiques.  Those seeking big size and bulk, literally have to use an opposing strength training protocol, low repetition and high weight!

Do the different classes on offer produce different results?


Yes. Generally speaking the classes will fall into 1 of 2 categories, cardio or strength. 


Cardio classes, by there nature, focus on improving the efficiency of the cardiovascular system (heart and lungs) and therefore improve cardiovascular fitness, at the same as producing a high calorie burn, to help burn body fat. 


Strength training classes improve the strength and endurance of the muscular system, improving muscle tone and your body's potential to produce speed and power.  Although a lesser amount of calories are burned during the activity of strength training, compared to during the activity of cardio training, the long term calorie burning potential of strength training is greater!  This is a result of developing calorie hungry, toned muscles, that burn calories for you, even when you're not exercising them, outside of the strength training activity, when you're at rest!


Although every class has an element of both cardio and strength training contained within them, the following list of classes are either predominantly cardio or predominantly strength training:



MM Bag Bass Box

MM Sticks N Kicks

Les Mills Body Combat



Les Mills Body Pump

Les Mills Core

What type of class should I prioritise?


In an ideal world, you would balance both strength and cardio classes/workouts, completing at least 1, of each type of class/workout per week!  If you've got time available to do each type of class more than once, it's a good idea to alternate between the two.  If your time is poor however, your best bet is to pick the type of class that you enjoy the most, that you are most likely to stick at, as any activity is better than no activity!!!

Can I pay as I go for classes?


Yes you can pay as you go for classes!  Although if you're attending classes regularly, it's more cost effective to start up a monthly subscription!

How do the monthly subscriptions work?


There are multiple types of monthly subscription available, all aimed at catering for how many classes you'd like to do per week!


If you'd like to do 1 class per week regularly, then a Bronze Subscription would suit you best.


If you'd like to do 2 classes per week regularly, then a Silver Subscription would suit you best.


If you'd like to do 3 classes per week regularly, then a Gold Subscription would suit you best.


If you'd like to do unlimited classes per week regularly, then a Platinum Subscription would suit you best.

What happens if I set up a subscription and I miss my class/classes one week?


No problem, if you miss your usual class/classes, in any given week, you're most welcome to use your class credit/credits to attend any other classes on the timetable that week, or the following week.


If you're away for a longer period of time, just let us know and we'll pause your subscription!

Can I start a monthly subscription at any time in the month?


Yes, as long as you don't mind the subscription payment coming out at around that same time every month thereafter.  If you'd prefer for the subscription payment to come out on the last working day of every month, there's an option to set this up too and I'll arrange a partial payment for the partial remainder of the current month.
