But things have moved on in the world of group exercise. Take a look down the long and varied list of classes at Aspria and you’ll find all sorts of options that will appeal whatever your age, gender, interests and level of fitness.
High-intensity interval training (HIIT), for example, gives plenty of scope to push yourself and your fitness to the limit. The same goes for studio cycling, combat-based workouts, circuits… Even the fittest athlete can challenge him or herself in these classes.
