We have a light and airy exercise studio with brand new equipment, such as the Elasko, which is, as far as we are aware, unique in this part of the UK.  Elasko is a multi-function stretch and balance frame designed to improve posture, flexibility, strength and general fitness.  

We also have a Nohrd combi-trainer offering a comprehensive range of exercises, which focus on strength, flexibility and core stability using the resistance of your own bodyweight. Combining a sliding flat bench with a cable and pulley system, the combi-trainer offers some of the functionality of a Pilates reformer.

All our instructors are qualified, experienced and motivating. We also have a lovely cafe waiting to refresh you after a class!

You will see on the class timetable that we have introduced a ‘Kids’ Yoga’ class, which will take place at 15.30 every Wednesday.  Accompanying adults may like to enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee in our cafe while the kids enjoy their yoga class.

If you have any questions regarding the classes, please contact Alan Geer on email fitness@knowlegrange.co.uk

We look forward to welcoming you to our classes.

Fitness Classes

Classes Overview

Boxing & Kickboxing

Our boxing and kickboxing class is an energetic exercise class involving punches, kicks and self-defence. Sessions typically involve hitting focus pads; no class involves hitting an opponent. It is a fun, challenging and safe workout which is great for stress busting, accessible to all ages and fitness levels.

Instructor: Alan

Bootcamp

Bootcamp

Bootcamp training is a mixture between on-the-spot exercises such as star jumps, squats and mountain climbers to circuits involving a variety of different exercises targeting the whole body. During the session we will do a mixture of cardio and weight exercises. A great class for all fitness abilities.

Instructor: Alan

Stretch & Core

Stretch & Core

Stretch and Core is a 30min class that will target each of the major muscle groups following some gentle mobilising movements to warm the muscles up. Along with stretching you will be completing some core exercises. A strong, flexible core underpins almost everything you do.

Instructor: Lucy

Circuits

Circuits

Our circuit training class will consist of a number of different exercise stations being set up around the studio. The participants will be given an exercise station and will exercise at that station for a set period of time. This class is great for cardiovascular training, body toning and core strength.

Instructor: Alan

Pilates

Pilates

Guided by the key Pilates principles relating to breath, concentration, control, precision, centering and flow. Pilates classes aim to help you to improve your posture, mobility and flexibility as well as build strength, particularly in your core but also other parts of your body.

Instructor: Lucy

Pilates using Combi Trainer

Pilates using Combi Trainer

Typically start with a warm up followed and including reformer style Pilates exercises using the versatile Combi trainer equipment to target specific muscle groups.

Instructor: Lucy

Yoga

Yoga

Classes include breath work (pranayama), movement, stretches and stances (asana) and end with a period of relaxation (savasana).  My classes lean more to the physical than the spiritual, and use props such as bricks, blocks, bolsters and belts to help you achieve the best possible alignment.

Instructor: Lucy

Elasko –  Stretch & Mobility

Elasko – Stretch & Mobility

Stretch and Mobility using the ELASKO frame and Combi-trainer ladder.

If you are less mobile or confident exercising, or if balance is difficult, the EKASKO frame with its bars and loops will give you that extra support and confidence you need to help you stretch, become mobile and build up your strength and balance.

If you are already mobile and flexible, using the Combi-trainer ladder or the Elasko frame will support you to go even deeper into those stretches, enhance your mobility and increase your strength and balance.

Instructor: Lucy

Somatics Class

Somatics Class
