Get Motivated with Instructor-led Training
The name may be STILL, but you’ll be doing a lot of moving at STILL’s Boxing and 30/30 classes. In Boxing, you’ll be punching aqua bags, interspersed with sets of HIIT and cardio, to the beat of fast and lively music in a dim room lit by strobe lights. A quick and effective way of levelling up your stamina, this also doubles up as a fun stress-relief activity with your mates after a hectic work day.
If you’re looking for something less intensive, the recently launched STILL 30/30 is a great alternative - combining a high endurance and cool-down workout session in just under an hour. A high-intensity interval training followed by 30 minutes of relaxing yoga allows your body to transition smoothly from dynamic calorie-burning moves to restorative poses.
