Shred (seen above)
Shred is exclusive to Fitness First, combining compound lifting with a HIIT based class to drive calorie burn, performance, strength and conditioning.
To start you’ll receive a warm up routine with coaching on each of the lifts included in the class. You’ll then work your way through 5 different compound lifts twice, with a performance based HIIT recovery in-between. Performing a 1 minute lift, followed by a 30 second HIIT, and followed by a repetition of the lift for 1 minute.
There will be 5 blocks with 5 different compound lifts and 5 different HIIT exercises, before a challenging ‘finisher’ activity, ending with bar stretches to assist you in releasing those large muscle groups worked in the class.
