Why Choose A Private Fitness Class?
Have you ever been to a fitness class where there are twenty plus people in one room? You feel like a sardine in a tin and you struggle to find space to move?
The problem with large fitness classes is that the instructor has only got one pair of eyes. Unless you know exactly what you’re doing you might well find yourself:
b) Not getting the most out of your workout due to not performing the exercise in the most efficient way - If you’re not activating the correct muscles exercises can become completely pointless and add stress to joints contributing to long term joint degeneration.
c) Ending up not being able to see exactly what the instructor is doing- Therefore ending up doing something completely different and putting yourself at risk of injury.
At iOme Fitness we run private classes at our studio in South Petherton with a maximum of six people. Every class is run by a personal trainer and in every session eyes will be on you making sure that you are exercising in a safe, fun and effective way :- Maintaining correct posture at all times.
Available Fitness Classes
Pioga - Flowing Pilates and Yoga
Before attending a Pioga class many people think that it’s simply a mixture of Yoga and Pilates, but there’s a lot more to it than that:
Pioga is a low impact, dynamic and flowing class performed to relaxing Classical music.
We don’t perform sets or repeat sequences over and over again. We create balance and harmony within the body as each exercise flows into the next. There are basic elements of yoga and pilates present but emphasis is also placed on increasing muscle flexibility; increasing mobility of joints as well as improving balance and muscle tone.
Pioga can be performed on either Mats or Chairs (Active Age Pioga). We sometimes use bands to help with posture correction and to increase the difficulty level of exercises (if you choose to).
It’s suitable for all ages and abilities and is a perfect addition to your weekly fitness class timetable. You can find Pioga at the Henhayes Centre in Crewkerne on Wednesday morning's at 10.30am. (Payable in blocks of four at £7 per class). Have a look at Pioga in action here.
Active Age Pioga
If you, a family member or a friend would like to take part in some gentle standing and chair based exercise performed to relaxing classical music then come along to what is increasingly becoming the most popular choice of fitness class for over 60’s in the local area.Two of the most frequently asked questions are:
1. Is the class suitable for people who have reduced mobility and joint issues?
2. Is the class suitable for people who are not very fit?
The answer to both questions is yes!

Every single one of your energy systems will be challenged during the class leaving you with a raised heart rate, a glowing face and a feeling that you awoken muscles that you haven’t used in years.

Your Personal Trainer will help you to find correct alignment and form. To add challenge or resistance throughout the class we sometimes use foam rollers, bands, weighted balls or the pilates ring. Pilates is great for strengthening the core, toning the legs, hips and glutes as well as for flattening the abs.

We work on different muscle groups throughout the class using various bar weights to increase or decrease the difficulty of each exercise.
