THE region’s male fitness fanatics are being invited to take on Bodhi – the most talked about exercise class in LA which is now available in the region.
Precision Fitness in Blagdon is the only studio to offer Bodhi classes outside of London and is set to launch a ‘men only’ movement class, aimed to enhance fitness and performance in sports and leisure activities such as running, cycling and golf
‘Bodhi for Blokes’ will launch on Saturday 08 October, running on Saturday mornings from 9am to 10am, priced at £10 per session. Bodhi ropes are suspended from a frame with handles and straps at the ends, from which you suspend using your body weight and gravity.
Led by Precision Fitness owner Adrian Bell, one of the top Pilates and movement experts who trained intensively on the Bodhi system in the US, the classes will use Bodhi suspension and reformer training to improve core stability, strength, flexibility and muscle balance, working the body in all movement planes.
Adrian spoke to I Love Newcastle Magazine and said: “Bodhi is Pilates on very strong coffee. Pilates is a popular discipline with women, but not many people know that its founder, Joseph Pilates, actually designed his workouts originally for male athletes.
“Resulting in strong, long and lean limbs, Bodhi can really enhance performance in other sports, which is why we wanted to launch Bodhi for Blokes, tailored to sportsmen. Whether a beginner or advanced, Bodhi is suitable for any level of ability and we’re looking forward to welcoming those who are keen to try it out or build on their skills.”
Additional Bodhi classes open to both men and women take place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at Precision Fitness, Horton Park, Blagdon Estate – five minutes from Newcastle International Airport. One-to-one Bodhi training sessions are also available.
