Effective & Valuable
The ideal training plan never loses sight of the big picture and challenges all muscle groups. Here's an overview for long-term training success.
Something for everyone
John Harris Fitness' group fitness program is diverse, effective and provides plenty of motivation. Here is an overview of the majority of our courses.
PILOXING - The word itself already reveals which two sports form the basis of the workout: Pilates and Boxing.
With Pilates as the first component of the crossover workout, Piloxing incorporates time-tested exercises for good posture, toned abs and a strong back. A good deal of momentum is created by combining boxing moves with dance steps to fast-paced music. The result is a sweat-inducing full-body workout mix.
The Piloxing training concept is to be aimed predominantly at women, who want to become stronger not only physically, but also mentally and improve so their self-confidence and the own body perception. The motto is: Elegant. Sexy. Strong.
Aqua Dance is training to groovy music of different styles in the water. You will improve your endurance and your muscles will be trained optimally.
Aqua Dance relieves your joints, ligaments and spine. Movement in the pool expands your range of motion and strengthens your cardiovascular system. It helps reduce stress, supports posture, promotes weight loss and contributes to pain relief and recovery.
Aqua Fitness gets you going and trains a wide variety of muscle groups without putting your joints at risk. Due to the training in the water, this course is especially suitable for somewhat heavier people, as well as people who consciously want to train in a way that is easy on their joints.
Depending on your personal commitment, you can work out to the fullest in the program put together by John Harris Trainers, or simply take part in the course without pushing yourself to your physical limits. In both cases, one stimulates the blood circulation and increases the body's own condition.
In the 60-minute Back Health course, the very clear training focus, as the name suggests, is on the back, buttocks, and abdomen. Training the surrounding and deeper muscle groups is the main focus here. However, John Harris' Back Health also involves stretching and lengthening to achieve even greater flexibility.
Different music styles, combined with great steps – an intense endurance workout that will melt your love handles and above all is a lot of fun.
Cardio Dance is the latest trend from the aerobic world and is based on the basic steps of aerobics. It combines fitness and dance. So if you enjoy dancing and want to do something for your fitness at the same time, Cardio Dance Class is the right choice for you. It improves endurance, flexibility, stamina and coordination. The cardio training achieved along the way improves the cardiovascular system and results in better blood circulation. Simple choreographies to great music tracks – something for everyone!
This classic offers a holistic workout for increased strength, endurance, coordination, speed and agility. The whole body is challenged at different levels. Variety and the use of different small equipment motivate to individual best performances.
Designed by John Harris, the “Harris Barbell Lift” is the ideal complement for people who like to do cardio workouts on a regular basis. The class is suitable for beginners:in as well as advanced exercisers. Using free (not mounted) dumbbell and barbell weights, you complete a muscle workout that is the ideal balance after a cardio workout.
The Harris Barbell Lift is a primarily standing workout, using free weights provided by John Harris. This can be used to work muscle regions that should be exercised and strengthened more often for a healthy and straight posture. Also, in the courses of John Harris is explained very well what to pay attention to when training with free dumbbells, so as not to injure yourself during training, in class or alone.
The training lasts, as with the other John Harris courses also usual, 60 minutes and is suitable for beginners and advanced participants.
Hatha Yoga is a form of yoga in which the balance between body and mind is sought primarily through physical exercises (Asanas), through breathing exercises (Pranayama) and meditation.
Hatha yoga is especially suitable for beginners and yogis who are looking for a calm balance to the stressful everyday life. The yoga practice also strengthens and stretches the muscles, making the body more flexible. In addition, Hatha Yoga improves body awareness and has a positive effect on the mind. This relaxes both body and mind.
HIIT & FIT is an advanced course. However, the intensity is self-determined and therefore also suitable for anyone who wants to challenge themselves in the group.
The duration of the unit is 60 minutes and takes place in the functional room. Strength endurance, stamina and performance are improved through functional, coordination demanding exercises. There will be 2-3 rounds of circuit training completed in the group. Kettlebell, balls, dumbbell and barbell, battle rope, Bosu Ball as well as exercises with your own body weight. The motivating music provides the right mood and the correct execution of the technique is always the top priority for the trainer for a joint, safe training.
The endurance training, which is easy on the joints, takes place on a special ergometer. The warm-up is followed by a cardio part in which the pace is adjusted to the music. This allows you to simulate climbs as well as flats and descents. This is followed by cool-down and stretching.
Indoor Cycle is suitable for everyone because everyone can adjust the resistance on the bike themselves, and thus all performance levels can train together and improve their performance. The successes are greater through various inputs, such as intervals, than with mere ergometer or bike riding. The rousing music makes the training particularly motivating and much more fun than a solo workout on the exercise bike.
High intensity interval training, HIIT, is fast, intense and burns a lot of calories. HIIT is a training approach that alternates high-intensity with several rest periods. This stimulates metabolism, increases oxygen uptake, lowers blood pressure, contributes to a healthy cardiovascular system, stimulates insulin sensitivity and lowers cholesterol.
BODYBALANCE® is inspired by yoga and is a benefit for body, mind and soul. This course concept is suitable for everyone.
BODYBALANCE® is a sequence of simple stretches, movements and poses from Yoga, Tai Chi and Pilates to flowing music. Controlled breathing is an important component. Our instructors also give easier variations for beginners. You will strengthen your entire body and leave the class relaxed, balanced and happy.
The barbell program is designed to motivate participants and help them achieve an effective workout.
Bodypump includes ten tracks. Each track focuses on a different muscle group. The exact sequence and the music composition change quarterly. The training goals are in particular the strengthening and building up of the musculature, as well as the targeted fat burning. The training weight is individually adapted to each participant. Weight exercises such as squats, lifts, curls and presses are used to incorporate all the main muscle groups (legs, chest, back) into the program. The focus is on movements with a high repetition rate (rep effect).
Pilates is a systematic whole body workout to strengthen the muscles, primarily the pelvic floor, abdomen and back muscles.
The aim is to strengthen the muscles, improve fitness, movement coordination and posture, stimulate circulation and increase body awareness. The basis of all exercises is the training of the so-called "powerhouses".
Power Back is a workout class specifically designed for the back.
After a warm-up, in which the joints and muscles are prepared for the subsequent strengthening, special exercises for the entire back, abdominal and gluteal muscles follow, with or without additional equipment, which are first performed in a standing position and then on the floor. In the conclusion follows a short stretching and mobilization of the entire body.
High-intensity 45-minute circuit training for the abdominal muscles.
This will work all portions of the abdominal muscles in the different muscle layers. Additional equipment used: Gym ball, mats, aero step, dumbbells, Redondo ball. Stations will be rotated through.
Easier ways of performing the exercises are also offered and are therefore suitable for a mixed group, where beginners can train with advanced students.
Through the course developed by John Harris, you train the abdominal muscles and the deeper muscle groups to improve them not only visually, but also anatomically. The training of John Harris is very intensive. The group dynamics motivate you and get you out of your muscular comfort zone very quickly.
Stretch & Relax is the perfect end to your weekend to relax the body. Here in 30 minutes the whole body is rolled out, stretched and mobilized. Very often a fascia roller is also used, and everyone can work at their own pace and level.
This session is a benefit for everybody and you feel really relaxed afterwards.
A functional full-body workout that is performed with your own body weight and with various equipment.
Whether with tubes, weight plates, training rubber bands, pezzi balls or stepper, you can determine the intensity yourself and so a varied and intense workout is created—for beginners and advanced!
TRX stands for Total Resistance Exercise, which means training the entire body. With the help of a sling trainer, strength and coordination are trained. This intense full-body workout is ideal for strengthening joint structures.
In the TRX Workout, you train with a TRX training belt mounted on the ceiling. By hanging, you work out with some or even all of your own body weight. With TRX you find yourself in lying, hanging or swinging training position. The TRX workout is one of John Harris' most coordination-intensive workouts.
Wakeup Cycle is cardiovascular training "to wake up" on a special ergometer. The warm-up is followed by a cardio part, where the pace is adjusted to the music. This makes it possible to simulate climbs as well as flats and descents. Finally, there is cool-down and stretching.
Indoor Cycle is suitable for everyone because everyone can adjust the resistance on the bike themselves, and thus all performance levels can train together and improve their performance. The successes are immensely greater through the various inputs, such as intervals, than with mere ergometer or bicycle riding.
There is hardly a better known and proven method to optimize one's physical, as well as one's overall mental condition than through yoga. Yoga has been proven to help not only preventively against mental illness symptoms such as sleep disorders, anxiety, or even burn-out, but also against physical limitations such as headaches, shoulder or back pain.
