Q. Do I need to bring any equipment?
A. We provide pads and gloves, but many people like to eventually buy there own. Boxing wraps are encouraged due or hygiene and wrist support. Remember water sports clothes and trainers.
Q. Can I come to the boxing session just once a week?
A. No, in our program structure we offer x2 or x3 sessions per week only. Simply because x1 per week is not our philosophy with this type of program. You will get far more benefit and results if you come at least x2 per week. If it is difficult to come x2 during the working week in the evenings then you can do one session on a week day and one on Saturday morning.
Q. Boxing sounds dangerous will I get hurt?
A. You and your boxing partner will use pads and gloves. There is no physical body contact. As long as you listen to the instructor, especially regarding technique on how to punch correctly and hold the pads then it is highly un-likely that you will ever hurt yourself.
Q. What if I miss alot of the sessions, can I get my money back?
A. In theory no, but I am human and willing to discuss depending on the reason.
All 4 week program start & end dates and holidays are clearly explained in the timetable. Always check this before committing to a 4 week program:o) to make sure you are going to make nearly all the sessions.Your paying for it so make the most of these sessions and get the best results possible.
Q. What is the difference between Kettlercise and other kettlebell training?
A. Kettlercise is a Body Transformation, toning and weight loss system, normally Kettlebells are usually used for strength, power and body building types of training, both are very different.
The two main differences: the weight of the Kettlebell that is being used and the duration that the Kettlebell is being used for in each exercise (e.g. reps)Kettlercise ® is THE single most effective Kettlebell fat burning exercise class, that uses the BSM method (Blood Shunting method) and is designed to re shape and sculpt the body like never before. Kettlebell Training traditionally uses much heavier weights to increase strength and power and often involves numbers of repetitions i.e. from 6 to 10, rest and go again.
Q. What size Kettlebell should I start to use for the Kettlercise program?
A. For ladies 2kg to 8kg and for men 4kg to 12kg
Q. Do I have to be super fit to attend a class?
A. Absolutely not! The beauty of Kettlercise is, you can go at your own pace, and dont have to keep exact time with the instructor. We also have Kettlebells starting from 2kg in weight, so we have all fitness levels covered, from an absolute beginner.
Q. What should I wear?
A. Loose fitting and comfortable clothing or athletic clothing, with comfortable running shoes or trainers. Also bring along some water and a small towel, as you will sweat!
Q. I’m not sure what I should wear for an outdoor BootCamp?
A. It really depends on the time of year and the weather. For Autumn/Winter, long legging/sports trousers, long sleeved tops and don’t be afraid to add 2-3 layers when it really gets cold and some light waterproofs. Don’t forget hats and gloves too. Nothing should be too bulky as you still need to have good freedom of movement.
For Spring/Summer, shorts & t shirts are fine in the summer. In spring type weather I would still advise an extra layer for after training so you don’t cool down to quickly.
Q. What if it is raining do you still do a BootCamp session?
A. If it’s raining, were still training! The exercises would just be adapted so that you don’t end up slipping and sliding around
Q. What if it is below freezing and icy?
A. Yes and No. Obviously we need to be careful here and think about safety. If it was -10 and was very slippery it would be cancelled. (sessions would be refunded) But if it is a dry ice then an area of ground can be cleared, exercises can be adapted and we would go ahead.
