    Body Weight Circuit

    9.30am - 10.15am

    Fitness Pod in MDX House

    Bodyweight training just might be the answer you've been looking for! It's a great way for anyone to build strength, and you can start where you're at right now.

    Learn how to master your own bodyweight, and you'll never need to add any outside resistance. The system of progressive calisthenics takes moves like push-ups, squats, bridges, leg raises, dips, and pull-ups and breaks them down into variations that even an absolute beginner can learn. As you get stronger at these basic exercises, you can eventually progress to more difficult variations.

    This event is free and open to all new and returning students.

    Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing.

    Workout fads come and go, but virtually no other exercise program is as enduring as yoga. It's been around for more than 5,000 years. Yoga does more than burn calories and tone muscles.  It’s a total mind-body workout that combines strengthening and stretching poses with deep breathing and meditation or relaxation
