    Empower: We slow down the reps to focus on lifting heavier weights. With two classes, one tailored to the upper body and the other for the lower, we prioritise defining and shaping lean muscle exactly where you want it.

    Sculpt: Join us barefoot on the mat and prepare to lift, squeeze and crunch your way to a strong core and powerful booty using tight and targeted Pilates-inspired movements against decreasing intervals.

    Sweat: HIIT, but not as you know it. Through bursts of high intensity activity, our workout gets progressively more challenging. This dynamic circuit style workout results in total body cardio-conditioning.

    Restore: In two styles, Yin and Flow Yoga, we offer recovery classes that help you feel relaxed, lengthened and centred. These slow-paced sessions are a time to reflect and listen to your body as we move through postures and feel our edges.

    ‘Vixletix Method is based on four pillars that I believe are crucial for a more consistent routine,’ 彼女は言いました.

    The first pillar, Empower, focuses on increasing lean muscle with strength training, which is important for bone density and preventing osteoporosis as we age.

    ‘Young ones come in thinking they will bulk up with weights but that is just not the case. In a female-only environment, you will only get the results women require and desire,’ 彼女は言いました.

    The next pillar is Sculpt, which is Vix’s version of ‘progressivePilates training using booty bands, sliders and interval training.

    It targets the glutes and core in equal measure for a targeted workout.

    ‘You don’t have to go anywhere else. The best results come from when you’re going to the one place, it’s safer and more motivating,’ Vix said.

    Vix recommends four fitness sessions a week to see results, with three at an absolute minimum, and to make it a part of your lifestyle, rather than a chore that needs to get done each day.
