What is Circuit Training?
Circuit training is an interval-training technique that consists of resistance/weight training and brief, high-intensity cardiovascular intervals, minimizing rest between sets.

Each exercise is done in a succession. This allows you to maximize your time by minimizing the time you spend resting. The intervals allow you to incorporate cardiovascular fitness into your resistance training workouts. Together they are a great way to build muscular endurance.

Who should participate in a circuit?
Circuit training can be applied to almost every fitness level and is a great way to keep your workouts inspiring, and motivating. Many athletes use circuits to build endurance for sport-specific training.

In a rut? Hit a plateau? Need to get started? The Express circuit is a great way to kick-start a new fitness program.

CoreBody Express
The Express program has been designed with the ‘time-sensitive’ client in mind; 30 minutes = twice around the circuit and targets every major muscle group in 2 minute intervals. See our Express Products for details on each station.

Customized Packages
We highly recommend our customized packages for those with specific goals or looking for further variation of the circuit. We can focus on the cardiovascular components or on the core resistance work building a fitness program that will meet your goals, while preventing or managing injuries.

Meet with a trainer to discuss your goals, then we design an effective program that reflects your current level of fitness, your life-style and schedule. See our Customized Packages for details.

On-site Trainers

All Express Circuit hours as of Summer 2006 will be considered 'Open Circuit" without instruction. However, for first time orientations and continued privates or personal training CoreBody can set you up with a fitness trainer who will instruct, motivate, and educate clients on proper alignment and how to safety use the equipment for best results. Once you have had your orientation, you are welcome to drop-in anytime during the 30 circuit hours! If you require further instruction or would like to have some one-on-one attention, please let us know and we will be happy to arrange a 30 min - 1 hour private for you.

Our fitness trainers are BCRPA certified with weight training skills, as well as pilates and yoga instruction for those interested in core training. Trainers will give precautionary measures for clients just starting out designed to prevent injury and increase safety for all components of the circuit. We will analyze the suitability of all exercises for safety with modifications where necessary.

If during your orientation we feel you require some one-one attention or that you need to have more core stability strength, we may recommend either in conjunction with the circuit or to start with a pilates class to learn how to stabilize through your core muscles prior to working on the circuit. This is simply a saftey procaution and we feel it best to ensure you are well suited to this circuit prior to having you join the circuit. If you have specific injuries, current or old ones, it is imperative you let us know when booking in your orientation.

Top quality equipment + certified instruction = variety, motivation + fast results!

Strength, agility, speed + balance are the focus of cross-training in a circuit environment. We have chosen equipment that allows for variety, intensity and offer high/low impact option.

Express Private Training

You may prefer the one on one environment when starting a new program, or the personal attention needed to help motivate and direct you within your workouts. If this is the case, see our rates below to book in your privates with a fitness trainer.

Two reasons you may want to consider private training especially when it comes to ‘circuits’; avoid repetition + see results! In a private we change the exercises you do to add variety + challenge. If you have never worked on a Pilates Cadillac or you find you keep repeating the same 3 exercises on the bosu-balls…it’s time for a “tune up” or private package.
