How Does A Les Mills Core class go?

Your Basingstoke Core class is 30 minutes of fitness fun. You'll complete a number of exercises using resistance tubes and weights, plus some great bodyweight exercises to tone the abs and back.

All of the exercises can be modified to suit your fitness level, and you'll have the expertise and watchful eye of your Village Gym instructor to help you perfect your technique.

There'll be a warm up, a series of core exercises to work the abs and back and a cooldown to finish. 

Is Les Mills Core Good For Weight Loss?

If you attend our Basingstoke Core class regularly, it can make a great addition to your weight loss training programme.

By getting your heart pumping and building muscle in the core, you'll help to blast calories and burn fat. 

Combine your Core classes with regular cardio and strength exercises on our brand new gym floor, and as you begin to lose weight, the Les Mills Core class will help you to tone that slimmer new you. 

Les Mills Core in your lunch hour

Sitting at a desk all day can give you some grief in the back and abs. Flimsy office chairs can cause poor posture, and hunching over a computer screen can cause poor digestions.

So give your back a break and your abs some attention! Round up your colleagues and enjoy a Basingstoke Core class during your lunch break.

In just 30 minutes, you'll get a core toning workout that will reduce back pain, strengthen the abs and be back at your desk in time for a saintly salad!

How often should I do Les Mills Core?

We would recommend making our Core class in Basingstoke a regular thing for optimum results.

Start with a class each week, and if you love it as much as we think you will, bump it up to twice weekly, in between cardio and strength training sessions in the gym.

If you're on a weight loss mission, intersperse your Core classes with cardio work to help blitz calories and burn fat. If you're adding muscle definition and hoping for six pack abs, 2-3 times a week of Les Mills Core will deliver impressive results.

Our virtual Core classes offer all the same kicks you'll get from the usual class, just without a Village Gym instructor. 

If you're a Core beginner, we advise taking part in an instructor-led class first, so that we can help you get to grips with the exercise techniques and reduce your risk of injury. 

Les Mills Core For Over 55s

Whilst our Core class is intense, it's limitless when it comes to age! Age is just a number, right?

Whether you're in your twenties or over sixty, our Basingstoke Les Mill Core class will give you a great core workout at your own pace.

If you find certain exercises too challenging, our instructor will modify them to suit you. Feel free to lower the intensity, decrease the repetitions or opt out of using weights.

Strengthening the core muscles can make everyday tasks much more manageable, such as carrying, reaching and bending. Plus, a stronger core makes for better balance, lessening the risk of falls.
