Keeping fit in Paris is easy, fun and an essential element of expat joie de vivre.
Body Sculpt (total body conditioning) – A toning class that uses light weights and mat work to develop strength and flexibility in the major muscle groups. Pilates principles applied. You will leave feeling strong, stretched, and inspired.
Café-Cardio Intervals – Intervals class of cardio choreography and toning, using light weights and punchy music. Increase endurance and overall strength, and walk out feeling like you’ve been tricked into building up a good sweat. (Why café? We hang out with coffee after class!)
Body Blast - Similar to Body Sculpt, but with short bouts of cardio to increase cardio endurance, and sweat.
Pilates Mat – Strengthen and lengthen the core muscles to develop a tall, open posture and balanced muscle development. This is a classic Pilates approach, at a basic to intermediate level, adapted to the participants. Mind, body, muscle, balance - good combo.
Stretch n Flex - A 30-minute stretching class for the entire body, especially focused on those muscles we're tightening the most during the pandemic lockdown.
For four weeks, commit to three things:
1- Do an extra 30 minutes of physical movement per week. This can be added in a lot of ways, for example via a 30-minute chunk of exercise like walking or running, doing push-ups or situps, or doing an activity 5 minutes each day. It can include anything physical, including dancing, massage, housework - the only rule is it has to be something you don't usually do.
2- Eat at least one fresh fruit and one fresh vegetable per day, frozen or fresh, not canned.
3- Get a daily email or Facebook post giving you something special to do for that day.
