Strong Bar is a pump-style class that is done using a barbell and weight plates, giving you a total body workout using weighted resistance. Focusing on low weight loads and high repetition movements, you'll burn fat, gain strength and quickly produce lean body muscle conditioning. These classes are designed to get you lean, toned and fit. The combination of effective exercises, motivating instructors and great music helps you achieve much more than you would on your own.
The effectiveness of Strong Bar comes from “The Rep Effect”, a proven formula that exhausts muscles using light weights, while performing high repetitions – this is the secret to developing lean, athletic muscle.
While you can expect to burn up to 560 calories during a 50 minute workout, it’s the building of lean muscle mass that provides the long-term benefits. By building lean muscle mass you increase your body’s ability to effectively burn calories in the long term as the extra muscle will raise your metabolism. You’ll end up burning more calories while you sleep!
In a Strong Bar class there are options to suit every ability. If you’re new to the workout, start with very light weights (or even just the bar). You’ll find your fitness and strength improves quite quickly over a number of sessions.
Strong Bar Express Class
Our express classes are short 30 minute variations of the full versions. They are designed to be done back-to-back with another class, so you get the benefits of two classes in the one training session. If you're short on time, or if you're running late, the express classes make it easy for you to jump in for a quick workout too. Express classes are highlighted on our timetable.
