PTF Studio Classes
Our group classes are called Personal
Training with Friends
(PTF), this is all about
social interaction, safety and
external motivation from our
With 8 different genres to choose
from, the classes incorporate components
of cardio, weights, balance and
core. With a maximum of 6 per class,
your trainer has the time and ability
to watch over you and alter the
exercises to suit you better when
and if the need arises, and to
push you if this is what you have
asked us for. A more
specific to you session as your
trainer will get to know you and
how far they can push and progress
you during these classes.
of our customers use these classes
as a maintenance program who are
happy to take a slower and quieter
approach to fitness in a non threatening
environment; beginners and the
advanced alike can work together
in this structure as some may run,
some may slow walk, and that decision
is made with your trainer during
your initial consult.
Please note: Our classes are not Aerobics
classes, they are gym classes,
using the weights machines, bikes, treadmills
and Swiss balls etc.
No coordination is required for our classes
the current PTF schedule here.
Class Descriptions & *New
classes for 2018!
Swiss Ball: This is a class committed
to balance and stability, most
if not all of the exercises are
performed using a Swiss ball in
many different ways. Swiss ball
work is ideal for engaging your
core and pelvic floor muscles. Very
few if any, weights are involved
in this class.
Weights: A 9 exercise, full body,
go at your own pace workout. A
timer is set for between 2 ½ and
3 minutes, where in that time,
you stay on the same exercise while
your trainer circulates the group
making small tweaks where necessary,
and watches you perform 12-15 repetitions
of the exercise usually for 3-4
sets of each, before moving on
to the next one. You have every
opportunity to increase your weights
as you see possible after each
set. A great strength class for
both beginners and the advanced
Cardio: This is all about getting
sweaty! We have a few cardio genres
to choose from and we decide this
based on who we have in the class
at the time. You may run, you may
jog, you may run up and down the
stairs like in the rocky movie,
you may bike or you may even
get to box with a partner, I really
can’t say too much, it would
ruin the surprise!
But I can say you will be encouraged
to push yourself (within your own
limits of course, as everyone has
different levels of fitness) A
very empowering class where you
get to kick your own butt and feel
amazing for it!
Studio circuit: A great beginner
weights class. Basically a round
robin of all the gym equipment.
A great way to get to try all the
pieces we have here. We do 2 sets
of 50 seconds, and in each 50 seconds,
you do what you can. A great working
and talking class as we do the
timing for you.
abs, thighs, triceps): The ultimate
girly class! Working all on the
major problem areas: the backs
of the arms, the derrière,
thighs and tummy. Slightly arduous
but fully worth it!
*Posture: Essentially a back class:
Working on all the muscles involved
in promoting strong posture, with
an element of spine flexibility
also. Great for office workers
who tend to stay hunched over a
desk for prolonged periods of time.
Body weight: Self explanatory.
No weights, just you. Squats, press
ups, get-ups, dips, sit ups, lunges,
leg curls…..gosh I’ve
said too much already……
*Box: The emphasis
here is on cardio fitness, no argy-bargy
here. We pair you up with similarly “fit” partners
and you take turns hitting pads
that your partner is holding, and
then swapping so the hitter becomes
the hittEE….amidst other
body weight exercises of course.
We do have a bag as well that we
may chose to pair you up with instead
if you are either super UNfit and
need more rests, or if you’re
super duper really FIT, and we’re
worried you might pull a Mike Tyson
hurricane on an ill prepared box “partner”.
