Do you want to tone up and increase your confidence?
Do you want to understand more about your body and how to exercise most effectively for your shape?
Victoria's classes are not designed to move in time with the music but more so moving in time with your own body and understanding the exercise and which area of your body it is working.
The classes are as hard as you want them to be, Victoria will always advise what weight each exercise should require but this is not gospel, you decide at the end of the day how hard or how little you want to work in the class.
What you put in you get out. Have you ever been in an exercise class and actually wondered to yourself if your doing the exercise correctly? Well unless you have the guidance of a coach checking on you then your most likely be performing the exercise incorrectly, which in the long run will not give you the results you want to achieve and can increase risk of an injury too. This is why Victoria designed small group classes and another reason why she made them women only too.
"I wanted to provide a service that was different to most gym classes or boot camps, I wanted to make a difference to the women that I am teaching, I wanted them to fully understand and grasp what it is we are doing each week in the classes. Not only this but with a small class of women I can focus on weak areas of their body's and work to develop these areas over time."
Victoria's emphasis throughout each class is technique and form, once you master an exercise you can only go from strength to strength. She use's a range of equipment, from kettle-bells through to resistance bands, classes will always vary to keep the body and mind challenged.
There is a maximum of 12 women per class to ensure you receive Victoria's full attention and to keep the group from over crowding. Each class is one hour long and this includes a ten minute stretching session at the end to increase flexibility.
Please do not feel nervous - The group are very welcoming and understands everyone needs to start somewhere, there maybe other women who are new to the classes too.
Time: 18:30 - 19:30
On Monday's class Victoria focuses more on your form and working purely with kettlebells. Each class varies, she will also advise on what weight to be using for each exercise, correcting your form for each exercise where needed to ensure you are performing it correctly and activating the correct muscles and to prevent any injuries.
Time: 18:30 - 19:30
Thursday's Class will focus on Kettlebell work for the first half of the class, using different exercises and movements to Monday's. Then the second half is broken into a mixed model of different equipment to challenge the body and the mind differently to Monday's class. Victoria will always correct your form.
Victoria's emphasis is on lifestyle, what ever you do - do it for life.
There is no quick solution to losing weight and no secrets, it is simply a balance between exercise and healthy eating.
A kettlebell workout can give you total-body toning, increased cardio fitness, core strengthening and improved posture and balance.
Whole body movements which are typical of kettlebell exercises are superior to machines that isolate muscles for improving muscle tone, body composition and strength. Further more, kettlebells strengthen the tendons and ligaments, making the joints tougher and less-susceptible to injury.
The most common kettlebell exercise we use is the swing it is a fantastic exercise to strengthen your body and burn a ton of fat. It develops tremendous power in your hamstrings, glutes, and core, which will improve your other lifts like the squat and deadlift. It also works your lungs and blasts your metabolism because it repeats so quickly.
And even more surprising, an American Council on Exercise (ACE) study found that the average person can burn 400 calories in just 20 minutes with a kettlebell. That's an amazing 20 calories a minute, or the equivalent of running a six-minute mile!
Although victoria works with both female and males as her clients on an individual basis, her classes are designed purely for women. This creates a fun, cheeky and girly atmosphere and encourages other women who maybe shy and nervous at joining a class. She also plans and programmes her classes around what women want such as toned tummy's, shapely bottoms and toned arms.
Victoria cares about each and everyone of her ladies. Her clients mean so much more to her, she cares about their health and well being and wants to ensure her ladies are improving getting stronger and fitter and most of all building confidence. Victoria is so particular when training and teaches every exercise from start to finish so she is sure and confident her ladies know what they are doing and why they are doing it.
"I find it so rewarding when I see my clients improving each week/month, I love what i do as it is educating people on a better path."
"My classes have women from 25 up to 66 and its amazing to what the transformation and determination of these women each week. I enjoy teaching them and having fun whilst doing it."
