Furthermore, the last 15 minutes are insane; Tabata’s, Insanity style or Amrap’s…
Since the exerciser switches between muscles groups, practically no rest is needed between exercises. This gets the heart rate up and blood pumping, which usually doesn’t happen during resistance exercise only. This class is not targeted only to lose weight but also to firm and tone, since you’ll be exercising every major muscle in your body, something which you can’t achieve only by jogging or cycling for example.
Don’t worry dear ladies, circuit training will not bulk you up with muscle, on contrary it will tone and firm those flabby muscles, bordering you on that sexy toned look you’ve always wished for. Although weight training has been traditionally a male pastime, undoubtedly it can be a crucial addition to a woman’s exercise regime, since females tend to loose muscle mass at the rate of 1% per annum in their late 30’s. This muscle weight often gets replaced by fat, however we all know that you need muscle and not fat to cushion joints and help protect against osteoporosis, among other benefits. That’s not to mention the trimmer, tighter appearance you’ll gain by toning up.
Ripped and Stripped works because it’s a full hour of cardiovascular and muscular endurance training, no choreographies, no chatting, just work and sweat. It’s brief, it’s basic, it’s consistent; no frills, over quickly. 15mins of a good full body stretch will follow at the end, because as we all know stretching is just as important as exercise. By becoming a regular in our family you will;
Improve both Strength & Endurance. (cardiovascular & muscular)
Boost metabolism – burn more fat.
Improve your posture – less pain/fatigue in your day to day chores (due to weak core muscles)
Firm & tone – get rid of flabby problematic areas.
Build more muscle = burn more calories during the whole day and night.
Be part of our ripped family – yes we all became very good friends, we organise outings, trips and activities altogether.
Apart from achieving a better level of physical fitness, it’s also a great stress valve, since exercise releases endorphins in our body which make us feel happy.
To a certain extent this class is for every level and age, for the simple reason that everyone can work at his/her own pace, however be aware that overall this class is the most strenuous we offer at Skyspirit, the bar has been raised quite a lot and the ripped and stripped regulars have become fitness locomotions, so don’t expect the class to slow down…..we’re always that step beyond and out of our comfort zone. If you haven’t been exercising lately, you cannot start your journey to fitness with this class. However, if you’re already a fitness beast or you’ve put in mind to become one, this is the class for you.
