WHAT IS BARRE?

For the uninitiated Barre is a training concept originating from Ballet and Performing arts where a barre is used to perform a variety of exercises, stretches and as a warm up tool. For decades it has been used by dancers and enthusiasts alike to maintain their fitness level and I feel it will serve as a perfect compliment to our stable of fitness and Pilates classes.

7 Reasons to strengthen your butt.

Not just for a peachy bum.

Benefits to strengthening your glutes are numerous and are the reason why all of our training at the studio involves some form of gluteus activation and butt work. These benefits include:
1 Tighter core
2 Stronger back
3 Faster running
4 Tighter pelvic floor (this is a big one [for girls AND boys])
5 Stronger legs
6 Fewer hip and knee issues

7 More junk in your trunk etc etc

Life changing buttocks.

While typically viewed from an aesthetic perspective the benefits of having a strong derriere are very functional and I would go as far as saying life changing.

Festive Health and Fitness – Offsetting the damage this Christmas and New Year

Staying on top of your Festive Fitness

So, its official! Christmas is just around the corner making this THE month for work parties, get-togethers and outings. Festive season can disrupt even the most consistent of fitness regimes. Use the following tips to avoid slipping off the training schedule and as a way to offset the food/booze fest.

Easy way to stay hydrated

Hydration is easy

It’s simple. To maintain optimum health and physical fitness:
• Drink fluids
• Regularly
• Preferably non caffeinated (but still counts)
• Eat water rich foods often. Vegetables and fruits (preferably low in sugar) are great to keep hydrated
• Avoid dehydration during a workout by drinking a glass of water an hour before training, during the workout as required and within an hour of finishing.

See you at the studio soon.

With healthy wishes,

Dmitri and the team.

1 stone down, 10% drop in body fat, 9 cm off the waist line – Epoch Fitness delivers.

When my mobile rung I was hesitant to pick it up; an unknown number, me at Oxford circus dodging the crowds and desperate to escape the shopping frenzy. For a few moments I stood staring at my phone as it rung and then reluctantly put it to my ear. What I heard on the other end of the line got me very excited.
