New to the Les Mills lineup this year is Seasonal Programming. Three brand new Group Fitness classes will be hitting timetables – each having a four-month stint before being swapped out for the next seasonal innovation. This new Seasonal Programming gives you the chance to experience innovative, fresh workouts and continue to challenge yourself and develop new skills throughout 2021.
In the spirit of innovation, each of these new classes focuses on a different training category i.e. athletic, strength, mind/body etc. Each class will be available across all 12 of our clubs, so you will all have the chance to experience them. There’s no need for any new or additional equipment and each class will be taken by familiar faces from our team of epic Group Fitness Instructors.
FIRST UP: REINVENT YOUR RUN
The first Seasonal Programme for 2021 is Runner's High which you'll find on the timetable between February and May. This class is focused on running and features drills and exercises to improve running technique and cardiovascular fitness. The class kicks off with drill training where you work on agility, core strength and technique. You then venture out of the club into the great outdoors (if possible) for a pack-run where you can choose your pace and practice your learnings from the drills. It’s an invigorating cardio session that’s been carefully choreographed to lift your running performance.
WHY YOUR BODY NEEDS NEW TRAINING INNOVATIONS
One of the benefits of Seasonal Programming is that you get to switch up your workout routine. While consistency is key to establishing a solid training routine, it's important to introduce new ways of exercising to make sure you keep challenging your muscles, cardiovascular fitness, and limits! With our new calendar of Seasonal Programmes it's easy for you to introduce something new to your routine throughout the year.
If you're now asking yourself “How will I know when to switch up my routine?", here are some questions to consider:
Are your workouts getting easy? Sometimes what used to be a hard slog becomes a breeze and that's not a bad thing, it just means you're getting fitter, stronger, better - and ready for a fresh challenge. Introducing a new class could reinvigorate your regime.
Do you find yourself on your phone more during your workout. You might just be bored! We're human - we need stimulation to keep us engaged and interested.
Are you missing that post-workout feeling? Remember when you used to be sore for a few days after a good workout? Your body might be getting too familiar with the same exercises day in and day out.
If you answered yes to any of those questions, it’s time to give Runner's High a try!
ON THE HORIZON
The other Seasonal Programmes coming this year are shaping up to be equally as epic as Runner's High. We don't want to give too much away, but get ready to sweat and stretch like you never have before.
