It can be hard to stay active during this pandemic with the restrictions on activity, limited access to facilities and equipment, and many other pressing demands for our time, but we all know about the benefits.
In this evening class, Bristol Co-operative Gym's Guy Lochhead will lead us through an efficient and enjoyable workout you can do at home to relieve common aches and pains, reduce stress and build strength, using no equipment and minimal space.
With each exercise, a range of options will be demonstrated to suit everyone from beginners to people with more experience of training. You are welcome to join in for as much or as little as you like, and you don’t have to have your video on!
By the end of the session you’ll feel more relaxed and more mobile, and hopefully equipped with a range of techniques and movement ideas that you can incorporate into breaks between your other commitments or put together into a personalised training routine.
- a simple, holistic workout structure
- an effective warm-up
- finding the right exercises for you
- preventing common weaknesses and discomforts
