Every fitness class at Gauntlet starts with a solid warm-up session to ensure your heart is pumping and your body is ready for action. To keep things varied, we switch up our warm-ups at different sessions. From general cardio to functional training and strength exercises, our instructors spend between five and fifteen minutes on fun, effective, combination exercises to build you up to HIIT, core exercises, and more.
Once your body has warmed up, you're ready to Run the Gauntlet. Every Gauntlet session lasts 19 minutes and pushes you as far as your body will go to create the best possible results. Eight kickboxing towers, two minutes of HIIT, and taped-off areas are used to improve safety, create variety, and ensure you're training every single one of your muscles for the best outcome. Each tower circuit looks like this:
- 30 seconds of form and foundation focus, ensuring you're hitting everything right with the support of our instructors.
- 20 seconds of 50% action exercise, getting you in the groove and preparing you for ramping up to maximum effort.
- 10 seconds of going all out, delivering your full force in kickboxing to get those muscles working and your blood pumping.
Rinse and repeat for each tower, getting your muscles working and your body toning effortlessly as each minute goes by. Add on two minutes of HIIT to really get your tone on.
Letting your body cool down and chill out following an intense workout is a vital part of the Gauntlet workout routine. We spend at least five minutes at the end of each session cooling off, stretching, and doing mobility work to get you ready for the rest of your day. Our cool-downs are the perfect time to break it down with your classmates, chat with our instructors about form, and get yourself in the right mindset for a positive fitness experience.
