CXWORX will increase your core strength, toning your abs, butt and legs. This, in turn will help to build lean muscle mass in your core and increase your body’s ability to burn calories. Focusing on your core and muscles around your pelvis and lower back, CXWorx provides the vital ingredient for a slimmer, leaner body with muscle definition, increased core stability and a stronger posture. During our 30-minute class, your Les Mills-trained instructors will take you through various core exercise techniques using resistance equipment and weight plates. So not only can you look forward to burning around 230 calories during a 30 minute class at Village Gym, you can expect better balance and stability which can help everything from posture, flexibility and preventing injury.
