From 4 years up to 6 years, children can join SportsFUN where special focus on body awareness and the fundamentals are the objective of these sessions. This foundation programme covers the development of movement and literacy. As a result of this programme children should then be sufficiently motivated and ‘movement literate’ to participate in specific sports and start developing their sports performance.This programme is concerned with ensuring that all children learn basic movement skills, enjoy being active and develop knowledge and understanding of their bodies and how they move following a specific syllabus based on: ABCs (agility, balance, coordination and speed).

Perfect For
Active older adults who are looking for a modified Zumba® class that recreates the original moves you love at a lower-intensity.
How It Works
The design of the class introduces easy-to-follow Zumba® choreography that focuses on balance, range of motion and coordination. Come ready to sweat, and prepare to leave empowered and feeling strong.
Class focuses on all elements of fitness: cardiovascular, muscular conditioning, flexibility and balance!

Stop counting the reps. Start training to the beat. STRONG by Zumba® combines body weight, muscle conditioning, cardio and plyometric training moves synced to original music that has been specifically designed to match every single move. Every squat, every lunge, every burpee is driven by the music, helping you make it to that last rep, and maybe even five more.

In each class you’ll burn calories while toning arms, legs, abs and glutes. Plyometric or explosive moves like high knees, burpees, and jumping jacks are interchanged with isometric moves like lunges, squats, and kickboxing. STRONG by Zumba® instructors change up the music and moves frequently to make sure you’re always challenged to the max.

STRONG by Zumba® also has options to suit your specific goals. The original STRONG by Zumba® class is a demanding hour-long session that works your entire body. It’s ideal for hitting your ultimate fitness goals — and then making new ones. STRONG 30™ packs a challenging total-body workout into 30 minutes. This efficient and focused class helps you fit fitness into any schedule.

Tone your muscles.
Tone your abs, legs, glutes and arms as you squat, plank, and burpee. STRONG by Zumba® is a kick-ass total-body workout.

Maximize your burn.
Combining a high-intensity workout with muscle conditioning stimulates a higher caloric burn for the entire workout, and a higher rate of post-workout burn. So start torching calories. The afterburn will let you know it’s working.

Challenge your core.
Bodyweight training requires an enormous amount of core engagement in every exercise. With one quadrant of the class entirely dedicated to floor exercises, the 29 muscles that make up your core won’t know what hit them.

Make every minute count.
It’s quite simple: the reverse-engineered music pushes you to do more, so you see results faster. Get ready to discover what you’re really capable of.

A STRONG by Zumba® class is a high-energy workout, and as part of your sweat session, you’ll hit the floor for some intense core exercises. Come prepared with the following:

Cross-Trainer Tennis Shoes
Floor Mat
(Optional for floor exercises)
H2O(A lot)

Tabata Fitness

What does tabata mean?
Tabata is a high-intensity interval training that consists of eight sets of fast-paced exercises each performed for 20 seconds interspersed with a brief rest of 10 seconds.

Where did tabata come from?
Tabata training (also called Tabata protocol) is a type of HIIT (high-intensity interval training). It originated in the research of Japanese scientist Dr. Izumi Tabata and his team from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports at Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan, on high-intensity exercise during the early 1990s. Their objective was to find out if short bursts of high-intensity exercise followed by shorter rests might condition the body better than a continuous moderate-intensity exercise.

To determine this, they worked with two test groups—one doing moderately intense exercise and the other high-intense. Moderate-intensity exercising consisted of a one-hour workout, five days a week, for six weeks. The high-intensity exercising consisted of a four-minute workout, four days a week, for six weeks; each workout consisted of eight sets of 20 seconds of exercise at maximum effort each followed by a 10-second rest. To do the math: (8 x 20) + (8 x 10) = 240 seconds (4 minutes).

The results of the study showed that the moderate-intensity workouts improved the aerobic (or cardiovascular) fitness of test subjects but did little anaerobically (that is, in muscle strengthening). The high-intensity workouts, on the other hand, benefited the test subjects more significantly both aerobically and anaerobically, which, evidently, was due to the unbalanced exercise-to-rest ratio. The reasoning behind this is that a shorter period of rest in between longer periods of intense exercise during a workout does not allow the body to fully recover. By the second half of the workout, the body is forced to work at maximum capacity physiologically, causing the heart to pump faster and the rate of metabolism to increase. In the end, the high-intensity routine builds endurance and muscle, and burns lots of calories—and it only takes four minutes of pushing yourself to the absolute limit four or five days a week. Hence, we have the popularity of the Tabata 20-10 workout (20 seconds of exercise, 10 of rest—and repeat).

How is tabata used?
Tabata has evolved since the 1990s, not in execution, but in the exercises that are incorporated in training. They are now more intense than pedaling a stationary bike at full speed, which was the main exercise in Dr. Tabata’s research. Nowadays, a combination of advanced exercises—such as burpeesmedicine ball slams, lunges, and kettlebell swings—are performed at maximum effort, making the 4-minute session of self-inflicted torture that much more intense.
