Core Ball Class
Also known as stability balls or fit balls. This class is a brilliant and fun way to strengthen not only your abdominal muscles but also your lower back as well as all the other core muscles around your body. These exercises are very effective with people who are prone to back pain.
You use more muscle fibres when using a core ball doing traditional exercises such as press ups due to the struggle to maintain the stability of the ball FACT!!
Using very light weights but incorporating high repetitions this class will activate and wake up every muscle in your body! It’s a lung busting, fat burning, muscle screaming, high intensity workout.
This type of workout is used by almost every gym, health centre and fitness professional across the globe, not to mention every military organisation! A great overall conditioning tool for fitness and weight loss.
This might sound a simple exercise “going on a leisurely stroll” I hear you say! But hey not so fast, don’t forget we are in Spain. A country that has 300 dry days and the temp in winter far exceeds most other countries. So that leisurely stroll up hills, trails then to the mountains with the temperature as it is and a trail that has been hand-picked to work out every muscle can suddenly become another great workout. With not only your cardio levels going through the roof but your stress levels will come down as hiking exercises mind awareness as well as the body. One thing is for sure, you’ll sleep well that night.
Those are a few of the activities that you will be doing......but throw in a bit of cycling, aerobics, karate-cise, and trim trails, as well as a few bleep tests......then you will have more than enough to do.
But remember, we devise your complete weeks workout program well before you arrive with the aid of the questionnaire that we will have sent you! So if anything’s out of your reach then we will know, and it simply won’t be on your schedule .
Remember that your week is tailor made for YOU and your small group.
Also not to be forgotten is the day’s beach workout on a sandy spacious beach, beautiful crisp blue sea with a golden honey sand, with a nearby beach hut supplying all the refreshments as needed, before your return to camp (This will not be possible in high season due to the sheer volume of holiday makers at this time).
From the moment that you have booked that’s when your time with us begins! We will send you a basic list of compulsory items that will be essential for your week's stay with us.
We will then send you a basic medical questionnaire for you to fill and e-mail back. With a more detailed one to be completed when you arrive.
You will also receive a fitness questionnaire which we ask you to complete as truthfully as possible. And the 2 weeks before you arrive we will send you a food diary to complete, and send to us a couple of days before you are due. All this will build up a picture of your health, diet, and fitness before you arrive.....and as such will enable us to tailor make your exercise workouts.
