If your resolution to get fit has lost momentum Newmarket’s four-star Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa’s health and fitness club The Edge can help you spring into action.
Hot on the heels of a £300,000 refit of the gym, The Edge has put together a spring programme of exercise classes at its dance studio in the grounds of the Bury Road hotel, designed to help shift the inches.
Classes include cycling, yoga flow, body blitz and Pilates, the most popular class at The Edge. Acting health club manager Samantha Fronicke said: “It is always worth exercising at a set time in your daily schedule.
“If you see this time as leisure it will be much easier to stay with the programme you have set yourself and it will quickly become enjoyable.
“If you want to avoid injury make sure you warm up and cool down properly. Classes are always a good way to exercise for those people who need a bit of encouragement. The instructor is there to push you, to help you enjoy exercising and lead to a healthier lifestyle.”
If you are the type who wants high impact exercise then try kettlebells: “It’s a new addition to our timetable and one of the highest calorie-burning classes around,” said Samantha.
“It’s popular with men and women and is a fun high-intensity class for people that really want to push themselves and get results, so it’s worth having a good standard of fitness before you take part.”
