Brazilian Booty Blast™: Classes that focus on booty sculpting with a variety of lower body exercises performed to upbeat Brazilian music. Let’s shake it! Burn it! Boost it! Blast it! Twerk it! You literally get to dance your butt off. A well-trained booty isn’t just good to look at – it has the largest and strongest group of muscles in your body where your highest fat percentage is stored, therefore Brazilian Booty Blast offers a focused workout to blast that booty, attacking the butt muscles through lower body strength exercises as well as cardio to firm and lift that booty but also work your core and legs.

Zumba: ZUMBA® is pretty much the most awesome workout ever. Dance to great music, with great people, and burn a ton of calories without even realising it. Zumba takes the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective and Super fun. Planet Fitness clubs offer the following Zumba classes: ZUMBA®, Aqua ZUMBA® and ZUMBA® Gold.

Yoga: These classes aim to improve balance, flexibility, coordination and strength with an emphasis on breathing and connecting mind and body. Planet Fitness has a variety of Yoga at selected clubs over and above Yoga, such as Bikram Yoga and Hot Flow Yoga.

Bikram Yoga teaches participants 26 Yoga postures performed in a heated studio setting has been designed scientifically to warm and stretch muscles, tendons and ligaments in the order in which they should be stretched.

Hot Flow Yoga will take your yoga journey in a heated studio whilst moving from one asana to another then holding these poses through strength and breathe to promote and increase flexibility, but also improve body awareness.
