One-hour workout promises all-over results. FAST!
One of the best ways to hone your shape to toned strength and fitness is mix up your workout. As I found out, a one-hour Blast Class at Lomax Fitness does exactly that.
In the course of 60 minutes, personal trainer Miles had me spinning, swinging kettlebells, lifting free weights, stepping, jumping, stretching, and hanging from ceiling rings.
It was a lunchtime whirlwind of a workout that left me wobbly with fatigue and exhilarated by an oxygen blast of exertion.
Blast sessions are tailored to different goals and mood levels depending on the time of day: morning wake-up classes (that you can even follow on Skype. No excuse to skip that workout for a lie-in...); lunchtime energy sessions; and evening muscle-building workouts that favour raised testosterone levels at this time.
Lomax Fitness, in London's Victoria, also offers a healthy food bar with options designed to support your fitness goals (weight loss, strength-building etc). My prawn salad was delicious and just what I needed after an hour's hard workout.
One innovative feature of Lomax Fitness is podular training. It offers the chance to work out in fully-equipped personal fitness pods, which offer a drop-down wall so you can choose to train in absolute privacy or keep them open for a class experience. There are eight pods on-site and each offers unlimited workout options, from spinning and circuit-training to Pilates and martial arts.
Lomax's Blast Class was developed not just to increase fitness, but to change the actual shape of your body. It works all your muscle groups in bursts of activity - short, sharp shocks in rapid succession, using a range of equipment including the exercise bike, Reebok Step, kettlebells, free weights, TRX machines.
It makes for a testing yet inspirational workout that achieves results fast. My arms are still aching a week later. Thoroughly exhausting. Highly recommended.
