Competition is an athletes biggest motivation so what better way to workout than in a competitive (but still friendly) environment like a group fitness class? Here at Steve Nash we have over 900 group fitness classes to choose from each week so to help out I narrowed it down to the top 3 that will be sure to kick any athletes butt.
The name says it all. In Powerwave class participants move through a high intensity circuit style class based around using the battle ropes. Battle ropes are not only physically demanding but also require coordination, speed, and agility. This class will put you in a different mental state of determination as you push your way through each interval mastering the various patterns of the ropes.
Similar to powerwave in the way that you will be moving through a circuit style workout, however this time your intervals are all strength based. Building a strong foundation of muscular strength will help with creating the power you need to be explosive on the court, field, or arena. In this class participants have the opportunity to push themselves in picking up a heavier weight for a bigger challenge and can see their progressions throughout week to week during this full body strength based class.
Using boxing drills and skills to develop cardio endurance, power, and core strength.
