This session has recently challenged participants to a new high in aerobic conditioning while providing a great sense of achievement. 3 minutes of continuous high / moderate activity has the ability to push you mentally and enhance your aerobic threshold. Six stations at 3 minutes for the first round is the first test, then to allow the intensity to be maintained, we reduce the volume while continuing to provide the exercise variation and intensity to keep your mental focus. This session is recommended for those with a medium to high level of condition, but one of the most popular and enjoyable new sessions.
Four x 7
The latest addition to the timetable is seen as the toughest. 7 minutes of 4-5 exercises completed continually at your pace, but there isn't much ret once the sirens goes. 2 minutes recovery between each stations and we do 4 stations which is 36 minutes in total. Short but very sweet, one we suggest you take on with at least a medium level of conditioning.
