We're not just training you to be brilliant in the studio, we're training you to be brilliant out there in the world around you. As you may already know we're not into fad fitness but we do like to stay on top of the latest scientific studies and research, and it's these findings that we use to inform our
Classes, Personal Training sessions and Event collaborations. For you it means functional fitness that benefits every area of your life; but it also means one-on-one attention, size-limited classes and personalised modifications to ensure you're perfectly primed to reach optimal fitness. Having
fun also plays a big part too!
TRAINING FOR MOBILITY
Right now there's a big buzz in the industry around mobility training. Training with a focus on aesthetics is fine but shouldn't come at the expense of physical attributes such as suppleness and flexibility. Mobility training's benefits are well documented: from increasing body awareness, improving posture, easing pain to helping you recover better after training and injury prevention. If you're a regular at Transition Zone you will have been privy to mobility training already, probably without even knowing it. We include mobility exercises into all our workouts but especially TRX, Power Plate and the Reformer Chair sessions. We're now going one step further and will be adding a mobility based class on Sundays, keep your ear to the ground for more news soon.
We've got a whole host of offers to keep you motivated in the lead up to beach season:
For all NEW PT clients you'll get a whopping 20% off.
So what exactly is dynamic pricing? In a nutshell it means that classes are priced differently according to their level of demand. The higher the demand for a class, the more expensive it will be. Demand tends to increase as the class gets closer so prices will tend to go up. If, on rare occasions, demand begins to weaken, prices will drop but the general rule is: the earlier you book, the less you pay. Try it out for yourself.

EVENT ROUND UP
Last Friday we saw 35 women (and some babies!) descend on the studio for our Women's Wellness event. Claire Pacey, a women's health physio from Beyond Health, kicked off the show with a brilliantly informed talk about pelvic floor rehab, postpartum recovery and libido. She was followed by Jodie Abrahams, a nutritional therapist specialising in women's health, who told us everything we need to know about eating to balance hormones, managing middle age weight gain and beneficial supplements. Claire finished off with some fitness tips and ways to keep fighting fit, no matter what your age. There were delicious snacks, lots of laughs and plenty of camaraderie. Part two will follow with more of the same.
Yoga for Lifters was a success too and a real eye opener for many of the men taking part. With an emphasis on preparing the body for strength training and aiding recovery time, it was not just educational but challenging too. How we loved seeing all you strapping males melting into the floor in pigeon pose!
