I work in accordance with the British Association Cardiac Prevention Rehabilitation guidelines to ensure that everyone is having a safe and effective workout. So please allow yourself at least 1 and half hours per session.
Warm up: Preparing your body for exercise is extremely important in terms of safety and injury prevention and minimising the risk of angina and disturbance in heart rythem.
PULSE RAISING ACTIVITIES: This part of the class will get your heart working harder and your breathing will increase.
STRENGTH TRAINING: Resistance training with weights, Resistance bands or your own body weight this will help you to regain the physical strength and confidence to do daily tasks more easily.
Cool Down: This is as important as the other parts of your exercise session. A cool down will help to alleviate muscle soreness and prevent a sudden drop in both blood pressure and heart rate that could possibly lead to dizziness, fainting and other complications like arrhythmias.
Stretching: Should never be neglected as it keeps the muscles flexible, strong and healthy. It is very important in order to maintain a range of motion in the joints. Muscles shorten and
become tight so simple stretching exercises at the end of your session will help to lengthen the muscles, improve your flexibility and help to prevent injury.
After the class I will need to ensure that your heart rate and blood pressure has returned to normal before I allow you to go home. This is a great time for a group chat.
