Stretch And Flex

  • Who is it for?

    This course is suitable for of all abilities.
    It is particularly aimed at either those looking to increase flexibility and/or want a focused stretched routine as part of a programme to help improve overall health and get fit.
    This class is either stand alone or can be post Fitness for all session or
    Pre HIIT session.

  • What does it cover?

    Lessons are weekly and start with mobilisation, followed by a series of stretches and breathwork. Working through the body including all major muscle groups and joint junctions. A series of held stretch poses, promoting breathing into the muscles. The sessions may sometimes incorporate mindfulness exercises, resistance bands or straps to aid the stretch poses.
    You decide the ending of the session - you get to pick how you end either a chill out /Mindfulness exercise - to send you off for deep calm for the rest of the evening or an awakening energiser getting you ready for exercise.

  • What will it be like?

    Teaching is done through demonstrations & verbal instructions. With designated times for question and answers. Students complete an initial assessment and health check at the beginning and evaluate their learning at the end. You will be encouraged to work towards you own individual goals to monitor your progression. The tutor can help offer support on setting specific, measurable goals.

  • What else do I need to buy or do?

    - Please wear comfortable clothing you can move in and do not restrict movement, particularly the joint areas.
    - Supportive Training shoes (Trainers)
    - Water
    - Own Mat (but these are available)

    Please note, you will not lose weight by taking part in this weekly course on its own. It should be seen as one part of a bigger programme where you take part in other physical activity and consider your diet and nutrition.

  • What could it lead to?

    Once you have completed the course you have access to any of the following information:
    Handout on stretches you can do at home
    Information on similar or further exercise options at MWC and/or out in the community environment, such as outdoor gyms.
