New class Game Day Ready is a session which mirrors the training methods of top sporting athletes. So what are you waiting for? Get your sweat on with drills that combine strength and power with agility and skill. Designed by Gymbox's very own professional athletes. Words: Monica Imbert
Game Day Ready launched last week at Gymbox, so I went to try it out at Westfield Stratford. The class – a combination of sports specific drills, strength power and stability work – prepares you for anything life throws at you, or in the words of Instructor Firas Iskandarani (aka CoachFufu) Game Day Ready is a combination of strength, agility and finesse.
As a hardcore gym bunny and self confessed girl who lifts, this class did if for me. Instructor Firas was the perfect combination of entertaining bloke and drill sergeant. The combinations of exercises were challenging yet easy to grasp. I could see why a class like this could help Gymbox members to achieve any goal they desire – whether fitness or weight loss. Or even just to break up the monotony of training.
The class divided itself into three sections of 40 seconds on and 20 seconds off, with three exercises in the first two sections and four exercises in the final section. Exercises included classic push/pull, variations on the pull-up, kettlebells and TRX. A brilliant combination in my opinion!
So why not get on your game face, and give Game Day Ready a whirl.
