Circuit training is using the body weight to strengthen and build the muscles. This is suitable for both genders and anyone above the age of 16.
The exercise is combined with endurance/aerobic exercises, incorporating the benefits of both a cardiovascular and strength training workout. ‘Circuit’ means a group of activities and refers to a number of selected stations positioned around the facility that are to be visited in rapid succession. The range of stations includes those comprising resistance training/equipment (e.g. Fitball, resistance band, free weights), as well as allocated spaces to do other exercises. Each person should complete the activity in one station before proceeding to the next. They then continue until they have passed through all stations as required by the instructor, or until a certain time requirement has been met.
