David Lloyd launches Volleybody classes


David Lloyd Leisure has announced it will be the first major UK fitness operator to introduce Volleybody, created by beach volleyball experts in the wake of last year’s Olympic Games. Aimed at people with


reasonable levels of fitness, the class takes inspiration from three core moves used during a beach volleyball game: defending, hitting and blocking a ball. Designed by the British


Beach Volleyball strength and conditioning coach Kate Eddy, and team members Zara Dampney and Shauna Mullin, the class is an hour long and is performed to music. It involves participants working in pairs with simple equipment such as medicine balls and resistance tubes.


Shauna Mullin and Zara Dampney helped design the Volleybody workout Volleybody founder and managing director


Katie Taylor says: “We realised there must be a way of taking the top volleyball players’ training programme and creating a version for the average woman and Volleybody does that.”

“Since using the Keiser M3 Bike I have found them to have a really smooth action. It is also great to have levels on the display as a motivation tool for the class participants. In addition to teaching, I am a tutor for Freedom Leisure’s Group Indoor Cycling Courses. I am really looking forward to running courses on the M3s as the display offers great feedback for instructors.”
