Circuits are a really interesting yet simple, fun and effective way of training. During the session you will quickly move through many different exercise stations with little or no rest in-between. Each station is completely different from the next, incorporating bodyweight exercises, and cardiovascular exercises, using equipment such as kettlebells, weights, suspension kits, slam balls, agility ladders, skipping ropes and partner stations like boxing and kick boxing pad work to name just a few.
Many people really enjoy training in this way as the sessions are challenging, varied and the continuous drive onto the next station keeps you engaged and focused – this in turn makes the session fly by.
It’s also by far one of the best class designs when working in a group, as you get to face your training partners, which creates a healthy competitiveness and can give you that little push you sometimes need. The results from circuit training are often related to the lack of rest and high heart rate throughout, great for building stamina, strength, agility, skill and cardiovascular fitness.
