We have plenty of equipment-free classes, as well as plenty of classes that include the use of dumbbells, kettlebells or resistance bands if you'd like to take it up an extra notch. The little 'EQ' symbol in bottom right is a quick way of checking whether that class uses equipment or not! Tap into the class description for further details on the type of equipment used, and even the weight recommended.

Remember: Lighter doesn’t necessarily mean easier! Light dumbbells can be used in intermediate and advanced classes, as well as beginner.

If you’ve never lifted before, we recommend popping into your local gym or sports shop and testing some weights out. Progress from lighter to heavier weights as you build strength.

Resistance Band Recommendations:

  • Short Loop Band - a small, thin circular band used in Cardio classes.
  • Long Loop Band - a long, thick circular band used in Strength classes. 13-32 mm bands are recommend.
  • 1-2 x Thera Band - a long, straight band used in Cardio and Rebalance classes, usually around 2m long. This can be folded/cut to suit your needs!
