Body Blocks

Body Blocks

What is Body Blocks?

The perfect combination of strength training, core work and balance poses using a plyometric box, hand-weights and your own bodyweight.
The class moves between sections focusing on your upper body, lower body, abs, balancing and high intensity cardio.
A tough but really fun workout that will challenge your cardio, strength and balance.

Is the class suitable for beginners?

Whatever your fitness level you’re welcome to come and try Body Blocks. The class has modifications all the way through to make it easier or harder depending on your fitness.

POP HIIT Pilates moves

Many of our regulars are keen to get back to our signature class POP HIIT Pilates. The class will be back on our schedule as soon as we are able to open the indoor studio on 17th May.  For now, we included some of your favourite ab moves from POP HIIT Pilates into our Body Blocks class.

Outdoor workout

We run this class in our outdoor gym fitness garden whatever the weather. The garden is sheltered from the elements, but not heated or completely water-tight, so please dress accordingly.

Socially distanced outdoor class

We have always prided ourselves in creating a fitness experience like no other: a break from the norm of ‘slick and intimidating’ boutique gyms and ‘go hard or go home’ franchises, but since Coronavirus our outdoor gym fitness garden is more valuable than ever. All classes are safely socially distanced.

How to book

All classes need to be booked in advance (no walk-ins): single pass, class bundle & membership options are available. .

Please check our FAQs for more information around the measures we’re taking to keep our instructors and members safe.
