KettleBell Has Arrived!

We have introduced Kettlebell training to our class timetable!

The classes will start on Monday the 9th February. There will be four classes per week all of just 30 min slots, numbers will be limited so get your places booked as soon as possible!

The classes will be on a Monday morning at 07:15, Friday morning at 08:00 and then both Saturday and Sunday afternoon at 3:30

The class will take you through basic technique of getting the most from your Kettlebell workout. Concentrating particularly on strength and endurance of the posterior chain. We will teach you all about it in the class! Get booking.

How Music Helps…

I’m sure you’ve all heard of music helping you in the gym, but have you ever wondered why or how it does this?

Research has confirmed that pumping up the volume increases exercise endurance and performance. So you’ll be pleased to know that listening to your favourite tunes could help you have a better workout. As well as being highly motivating, it helps divert attention from the burn and can increase endurance by up to 15%!

Aerobics and other class instructors like to motivate people using a loud thumping bass line for exactly this reason. It’s not just an aid for timing, but it can help participants burn more calories and give that extra push that they crave.

Coming soon…

Kettlebell-ClassKettlebell classes are soon to arrive here at The Atrium Club. The first class will be on Monday 9th February at 7.15am-7.45am. The dynamic nature of the kettlebell will give you an all-in-one workout of a lifetime, combining both strength and cardio aspects. These classes are for both beginners and advanced fitness levels and are suitable for men and women so don’t be afraid and come and give it a try.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from all here at Atrium Fitness!

After all of our merry making, our goal to get Ely fit continues into 2015. We are back open to our normal hours now and classes begin as normal from Monday! We have an insanity special taking place tomorrow (Saturday 3rd) with Jess taking the participants through an intense choreographed bodyweight class.

Look out though…

We have a few new classes and some minor changes to our timetable taking place as of 12th January! So head in and pick up our new timetable to get up to date and all your class bookings sorted before then!

Look Out..!!!

Jess, Pawel and Aaron will be going on their Insanity training course on Thursday the 18th December.

In an insanity class you work flat out in 3-5 minute blocks, and take breaks only long enough to gulp some air and get right back to work. It’s called Max Interval training, because it keeps your body working at maximum capacity through your entire workout. You keep pushing your limits-as your body has to adapt.

We are looking forward to introducing Insanity training to the Atrium club and hope that our members are ready for the challenge!

Winter Bootcamp

Winter bootcampWinter is one of those times its hard to get motivated for the gym. We know that as well as any other. The nights seem long and come far too early, you’re driving home from work and it’s already dark. However, Saturday mornings we run a Bootcamp! Why not get motivated in typical class fashion along with fellow Bootcampers and come and give it a go! While it’s light at 9am, we’ll beat the cold and get you warm and feel as though you’ve had a great workout! Our trainers are highly qualified and ready to make you feel the burn! Just remember to wrap up warm with layers to take off as you warm up!
