The circuit classes are conducted using peripheral heart action (PHA) training, a resistance and aerobic based circuit workout, that aims to keep the heart rate elevated for the duration of the session with a variety of equipment suitable for all levels of ability. The smaller muscles around the heart are worked on first before the larger muscles around the body’s periphery. PHA training alternates from upper body to lower body and back again. Improving muscular strength and endurance, through resistance training, boosts muscle mass, reduces body fat and minimises the risk of developing further health issues.
Members of the JHSG who participate in the weekly circuit classes know that exercise plays an important role in leading a healthier lifestyle; increases their quality of life; helps them manage their condition and look after their heart. Regular exercise maintains functional independence with ageing; increasing stability, balance and coordination; making bones and muscles stronger and developing better posture, joint function and flexibility. All of which are vital in ensuring that the best possible range of movement is sustained as we age’.
We look forward to seeing you there.
