Fitter&Fitter at Pegasus Park

Fitter&Fitter@Pegasus Park: One healthy business park. 10 companies have signed in for the first 13 weeks of training

Untill Christmas, we will offer several trainings to improve the employee's health. 10 companies have signed up so far. That means that all employees of these 9 companies are free to join these classes. There will be Yoga and Bootcamp (general physical training, different levels) but also running (technique, posture, strength). Other specific sessions will be organized on a regular base. Sign up here!

 

 

SCHEDULE 

We have a standard schedule with 2 times bootcamp and 2 times yoga a week. On regular base, we organisze special sessions, like a core stability workshop and strength for runners.

ATTENTION: Bootcamp will be indoor from Monday the 20th of November.

Where?

Kleetlaan 5BC: at the entrance of the building with KNX, Antargaz,... just at the leftside of this entrance is a big empty space. Come to the fitness centre unless youre late, then come straight to this indoor area.

All trainings are from 12.15 - 13.00

 

About the bootcamp

Mondays will be more intensive, with circuit training. Fridays will be a little bit lower intensity and more focused on core stability. 

 

About the yoga

You will be guided through a flow that builds on breath awareness, safe alignment and the simple principles of yoga. Each class targets physical strength and flexibility throughout the entire body. (We end the class with a few yin postures that work on a deep stretch.)

We are looking for balance between effort and relaxation. Yin & Yang. Combine the best of both worlds. Some people need more yin, some more yang, but we all need them both. Yoga for every-body!

Please bring a towel and bring your own yoga mat. 

 

Special sessions in November and December

These are the special sessions for the next two months

 

About the special sessions

We’ll have some specific sessions again, to offer you a nice variety in training. Don’t miss them.

Strength for skiing (All Bootcamps on Mondays in December): In the Monday Bootcamp, we’ll add a focus on the muscles you need for skiing. Stronger legs will make you enjoy the skiing more. By training your upper legs before your holiday, you will decrease the sore muscles during the holiday. Stronger muscles will keep you going more days in a row. 

Having some extra strength left can also be crucial in some situations to maintain your technique.

Runing technique workshop:  17th of Nov, 27th of Nov

Every runner wants to fly. With a good technique, you can get that feeling of flying. Running technique is about running more efficient, but also about avoiding overuse injuries because of a better use of your muscles. Runing technique is strengthening your main posture muscles and improving your coördination. An improved coördination will lower the risk to fall. Only good things in this workshop. And hey, you’ll learn to fly!

Happy Hips: Nov 9: In this workshop, you will gain more understanding on how to keep your hips healthy. 

We were all born with great flexibility in our hip joint. Growing older, we tend to get very tight in the hips. The main reason is our sedentary lifestyle.

We will work on opening the parts in our hips that are tight and at the same time strengthening the deeper layers that stabilize our hips. Increasing the range of motion of your hips offers two main benefits: improved health of the hip joints, and reduced strain on the lower back. 

Twist / detox yoga: Nov 17: with twists, we take care of the spine. We lengthen the spine and create space in between the vertebrae. When there is a lack of space, the spine tends to get stuck.

Twists rotate the spine and stretch the muscles of the back. This helps to restore and retain the spine’s natural range of motion.  

And they are also great to create movement in and around all the organs, aids digestions, and therefor has a detox function as well!

Yin Yoga to the rescue: Dec 7: Yin Yoga is designed to stretch the body and works in our connective fascial tissue, a balance to the more dynamic Yang practices.

In a Yin class, floor poses are held for at least 3 - 5 minutes. This allows us to reach the deeper layers like our ligaments and joints and enabling muscles to soften. Holding a posture for a longer period of time, Yin yoga cultivates a sense of surrender. 

A powerfully therapeutic class, Yin is ideal for highly active people – runners, cyclists, regular yoga practitioners -  as well as anyone wanting to release tightness in their body.  It creates a feeling of deep relaxation. You will leave feeling lighter, more flexible, and with a more open body, mind and heart.  

Neck, shoulders and upper back: Dec 15: A lot of people have back pain. Due to the fact that we are sitting a lot of hours during the day, we tend to hold a lot of tension in the upper back and area. 

This session is great to loosen up all that stress and tension, find some movement again, relieve pain and tightness and feel relax again. The ideal session to counteract the effects of sitting at a desk all day.

Bootcamp

Bootcamp is a high intensity, outdoor training session in which we focus on health related fitness training. In the bootcamp, endurance (cardio) is combined with basic-strength, core stability, speed, agility and a lot of fun. In fact we take a few of the ingredients from crossfit, pilates, athletics, general fitness and social fun.

Because of the variation in exercises, people from lower and higher level of fitness can train together. This makes it the perfect training for a complete work-out, a perfect work-out for all.

Bootcamp is also the perfect sporty teambuilding.
