BODYVIVE™ is a 55-minute class that integrates aerobic exercise (for heart fitness), resistance training (for strength and stability) as well as stretching and mobility work.
What is BODYVIVE™?
BODYVIVE™ is a popular, low-impact, whole body workout that incorporates the use of props such as VIVE™ balls, VIVE™ tubes and also your own body weight to boost overall fitness and core strength.
You can expect inspirational Nuffield Health instructors and energising music to motivate you every step of the way. To help keep your workout fresh a new BODYVIVE™ class is released every three months, complete with new musical accompaniment and choreography.
What should I expect from the class?
The class starts with some low impact cardio work designed to burn calories and improve heart health. We then move into functional resistance training where we use both our body weight and resistance bands to train your body. We finish with some great core conditioning work and a cool down to strength and restore your body, so your ready for the next class!
