NO & YES!
CIRQ strongside / engine / watt & LIFT = book your class
CIRQ flex (8.45am - 5.15pm) = NO NEED TO BOOK, just turn up and give us your name
45 minutes of non-stop full body fitness (including a warm-up and cool down). In CIRQ and LIFT you'll travel around 9 or 7 stations respectively, with clear instruction what to do at each zone. Screens, lighting and interval beeps work alongside our coach to ensure you are fully aware of what to do and making sure you do not lose one second of your fitness time
CIRQ and LIFT sessions have been designed to be open to ALL fitness levels. You train at individual zones in a group environment, meaning you can focus in on yourself and your personal best. All we ask is you push yourself and just grab whatever kit/weight works for you and move. Our coaches are well versed in helping you switch-up an exercise if it's not right for you
We have x6 showers in each changing room, fully kitted out with Rituals product.
We also provide;
CIRQ consists of 3 class types, all designed to support the same goal - full body fitness
LIFT classes focus on low-impact full body strength training, light on the jumping yet heavy on the resistance. The LIFT circuits are designed to focus on muscle tone and strength gains across all major muscle groups and promote rock solid foundations
FLEX is our circuit built to work to your time. A pre-programmed fully-immersive HIIT & Strength circuit that you can jump into and out of whenever works for you
A pre-programmed easy to follow circuit which is open for you to train at any time between 8.45am through to 5.15pm (last entry we recommend is 4.45pm)
Train for a full 40min circuit, cut it short or double up - it's your fitness time. A coach monitors the FLEX sessions and are at hand for any questions.
In short, yes.
CIRQ and LIFT was designed to give you the most efficient route to promote full body fitness. The fitter you get in CIRQ increases your vo2 max and cardio output which in turn increases your muscular stamina during LIFT, especially during rest periods. And equally, gains in LIFT increases your muscular strength which in turn helps you move more powerfully in CIRQ
FACT. Muscles have a higher metabolic rate than fat, so the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn (including at rest!)
Simple symbiotic science
Whilst each class has its own focus and their own unique movements, you can find some exercises will crossover between them. For example, mountain climbers and push-ups will be relevant for most class types, whereas broad jumps and tuck jumps are mainly found in WATT. You will also find some crossover between exercises found in LIFT and in CIRQ. When this is the case, it's the tempo and weight used which is the focus to tap into different energy systems
For CIRQ and LIFT we highly recommend you arrive at the scheduled start time so you're totally clear on what exercises are involved and you can get warm!
FLEX sessions, however, come in whenever suits! A coach will be available to assist
CIRQ / LIFT - you can cancel up to 12hrs before the scheduled class
FLEX - you can cancel your FLEX credit 1 minute before the window starts - total flexibility
If you have the FLEX unlimited - don't need to worry about cancellation
The management and staff of CIRQ are dedicated to help you make the most of the facilities and services we offer. With this in mind, we have carefully considered what we can reasonably expect of each other.
