his winter won’t be dull if you start training at the Activate Plus Personal Training Studio


on Chiswell Street, EC1. All of the trainers are fun, friendly and have at least 10 years of experience in the Health and Fitness industry so they can tailor each session to suit your needs whatever your fitness level and goals. Libby Thomas, who works in the


city and trains with Niron Noel at Activate Plus, told us “Niron is a great trainer. I recently did the 3 Peaks Challenge where you hike up each of the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales, all in 24 hours. To help me prepare, Niron designed a programme which was fun, varied and really improved both my muscle strength and stamina. I would really recommend him.” The Activate Plus Personal


Training Studio is on the first floor of Templeton House and is full of natural light giving it an open feel. There are no long contracts to sign up to and no membership fees so you only pay for the session you want, when you want them. The studio is also decked out with an excellent range of the latest equipment. For a complimentary session, please

News from Virgin Active Barbican


rofessional dancer Mila has taken over Total Body Conditioning (TBC) and Step


classes on Sunday from Jonny. I particularly liked Mila's TBC class. It's high intensity interval training. Yes, you can work within your own fitness level - Mila provides exercise intensity choices - and there were people of all shapes, sizes and fitness. If you're up for a challenge you can achieve the same intensity as with a personal trainer. I was impressed that Mila went round the group correcting mistakes and poor technique - which not everyone does. The class was 50/50 cardio and weights. Exercises lasted one to two minutes, in four- minute sections, without repeating. So it felt varied, positive and fast paced. I went along with the intention of doing both TBC and Step - as in the past - but found that I worked so hard in TBC that, although feeling energized, one hour was enough. Both classes are popular choices.
