No Equipment – Total Body Blast!

We run a regular circuit training session each week which incorporates a great mix of exercises for a total body blast. Ordinarily, we use a range equipment such as dumbbells, medicine balls, kettlebells & equalisers as well as cardio and bodyweight stations.

Perfect Planks
