Aerobic - The ElliptiGO Section
The ElliptiGO 8S combines the best of running, cycling and the elliptical trainer to deliver a low-impact, high performance workout – outdoors. The low impact exercise eliminates joint pain and quicker recovery allows for longer and more intense training.
For the 25 minute aerobic section of the class you will be given an ElliptiGO 8S unit pictured above. You will be given a route to complete depending on your fitness level. Don't worry, you will be provided with a Garmin GPS unit which will make sure you don't get lost as well as let you know how fast you should be going.
Anaerobic – Supervised Callisthenic Exercise.
The term 'anaerobic' means 'without oxygen.' Anaerobic exercises cannot last for long periods of time because they do not use oxygen for energy and lactic acid is produced in the muscle cells as a by-product. Lactic acid build up effects muscle action and function. Anaerobic exercises use muscles at a high intensity for a short period of time.
Calisthenics is a type of anaerobic exercise usually performed without weights that helps increase body strength and flexibility. Calisthenics is a type of isotonic exercise that uses the body weight as the resistance force. Common examples of callisthenic exercises include sit-ups, push-ups and squats.
Focused on core strength and conditioning, programs are constantly varied (don't be surprised when the kettle bells are brought out) to create a stimulus like no other - designed to elicit as broad an adaptational physical response as possible.
