WHICH BIB COLOUR SHOULD YOU TAKE?
BEGINNER GROUPS (BLUE BIBS)
For those people that currently do little or no exercise OR are returning to fitness training after a break. For example, after having given birth or returning from a medical condition. This level bib is for anyone to try, and at the bigger venues we do several levels of beginners classes. There is nothing to be afraid of.
INTERMEDIATE GROUPS (RED BIBS)
For those who have worked their way up from our novice groups or those joining us who have a reasonable standard of fitness already. Intermediate classes are either a great way to keep weight off OR a great way to step up to more challenging classes, depending on the kind of person you are.
ADVANCED GROUPS (GREEN BIBS)
Where the fittest members will be put through a very intensive session. Separate advanced classes are run at most of our venues. The sessions are highly rated by the sports men and women that attend them who are looking to get pushed beyond anything they have experienced before. A great way of cross training for people who have no fear.
