Huish Leisure delivers a wide range of fitness classes designed to suit all fitness levels:


Spinning: An intense cardio vascular work-out on static bikes. Spinning covers sprints, hill climbs and mixed terrain work-outs. The class is a fantastic way to increase both heart rate and blood flow. You control your resistance, the instructor controls the pace

Lift and Pump: This class provides a variety of barbell and dumbbell exercises, set to music, that will get the pulse rate up and give you a full body workout. As we age, muscle strength becomes increasingly important as it offers protection against conditions such as osteoporosis. You control the weights you lift. Your instructor controls the muscle groups you exercise.

Zumba: An engaging cardio-vascular work-out set to music. Fast, fun and funky, if you love dancing and music, then Zumba is the class for you.

Kettlebells: Unlike a dumbbell or barbell, the kettlebells centre of mass is offset from the handle. This means the weight constantly pulls against your hand and requires not only strength and co-ordination, but also the use of the other muscles through your arms, shoulders and your core stabiliser muscles. You use around 600 muscles in a workout and exercise your cardiovascular system, too – it's definitely a total body workout! Not ideal for anyone pregnant or anyone with a history of back injuries.

Hatha Yoga: Hatha Yoga is a form of yoga that seeks to balance our energies.  The literal translation of  Hatha is "Ha" sun (masculine energy) and "ta" meaning moon (feminine energy),  Hatha yoga seeks to balance them both within us to bring peace and wellbeing.  That all sounds lovely, but what does this actually mean when I come to a Hatha yoga class? In a Hatha class we use traditional yoga poses and breath to strengthen our bodies, increase our flexibility and mobility but also to bring ourselves into the present and settle our minds.   

Hatha Vinyasa Yoga: This is a more dynamic and energising form of Hatha yoga. Starting our practice seated to allow time to arrive on our mats and bring our focus out of our minds and into our bodies and our breath. The main part of the practice will involve flowing from one yoga pose to another. Classes will always feature sun salutations in some form and there will be options to increase effort at various points in the practice. Finally, we will finish the practice lying down for a guided relaxation.

Walking Football - Exactly as it suggest - a standard game of football where players walk instead of run.
