Welcome to The Ox Effect, each day we offer a variety of classes.
Why we are different from the rest? We offer two of our most popular classes at the same time; Strength & Conditioning - this way of programming helps you get a more consistent workout and will help drastically lower the risk of overtraining a particular muscle group. We run this split class multiple times a day giving you the flexibility to train what you want, when you want. The Strength Workout will focus solely on strengthening the body and building muscle by lifting weights. The Conditioning workout will vary day to day but will consist of Functional training, High Intensity Interval Training or Circuit Training. Come in and make a decision on which one feels right for you on the day.
Our goal is yours; strong in body and mind. To balance your high intensity workouts downstairs we recommend utilising our yoga/pilates studio upstairs.
In the Strength and Conditioning classes you will use a variety of free weights, body weights and resistance exercises to challenge yourself. Instructed every step of the way you will find yourself improving week to week when training consistently. Training this way is more than lifting weights. It helps to improve the entire physical performance. Track your progress each class and see radical improvements.
