In our Danubius Premier Fitness locations we offer the possibility of a fitness consultation. During the consultation the instructor will conduct a screening to determine your fitness level and if you have any risk factors. This will include a blood pressure and heart rate reading and an assessment of your weight, body mass index and waist/hip ratio. Following the consultation they will also discuss your goals and help you design a program to help you achieve them. The fitness consultation normally includes demonstrations and coaching on how to use the equipment. A follow up consultation is advised two months later.
Our instructors carry out regular group training sessions in the fitness room. If you don’t know how to use the equipment why not join a Fitness Room Orientation Class. We also offer other classes on the equipment such as weight loss classes and functional training. Ask at the fitness for more information!

Aqua fitness is different to water rehabilitation (See Physiotherapy: Water Rehabilitation) in that its focus is not just mobilization, flexibility and rehabilitation. Here, a number of exercises are incorporated into the class using large muscle groups that increase heart rate thereby giving the body a cardio work out. Regular exercise of the cardiovascular system has been proven to reduce heart disease, lower blood pressure, help weight loss and reduce the risk of many diseases. Aqua fitness uses the resistance of water to exercise the body as well as resulting in minimum stress being placed upon the joints. In addition to improving the cardiovascular fitness of the body, using certain water-based equipments, muscle-toning exercises are often incorporated into the class. All fitness classes begin with warm up and stretching, before beginning the more intensive exercises. Classes likewise end with a cool down and developmental stretching.
Regular exercise of the cardiovascular system has been proven to reduce heart disease, lower blood pressure, help weight loss and reduce the risk of many diseases. In addition it helps speed up the body’s metabolism. To exercise the cardiovascular system it is necessary to use large muscle groups such as the legs. Based on this principle step aerobic combines traditional aerobic movements (See: Aerobic) with small steps up onto a purpose built step. With an increased fitness level these steps can be heightened. Step aerobics are an extremely comprehensive aerobic and cardiovascular workout and are therefore only advised for persons with a good level of basic fitness. All fitness classes begin with warm up and stretching, before beginning the more intensive exercises. Classes likewise end with a cool down and developmental stretching.

Joseph Pilates developed his concept in England whilst interred during the First World War, basing his principles on yoga and Tai Chi (See: Yoga, Tai Chi). Whilst working in a hospital he began devising equipment to rehabilitate his patients, taking springs from beds and rigging them to create resistance. Pilates is mainly taught on a mat, sometimes using specialist equipment that has changed little from the original hospital bedsprings. Practiced faithfully Pilates yields numerous benefits, including increased lung capacity, strength, flexibility, posture and balance. The balance and control taught in Pilates helps in all areas of ones life. His methods are so successful that all types of people now use them from ballet dancers to rugby players.
The word yoga means ‘union’ in Sanskrit, the language of ancient India where it originated – the union of mind, body and spirit. Many people think that yoga is stretching, but whilst stretching is certainly involved, yoga is really about creating a balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. This is done through a series of poses, each of which has specific physical benefits. These poses can be done quickly in succession, creating heat in the body through movement, or slowly to increase stamina and improve the alignment. In addition to these poses, yoga classes may include instruction on breathing or meditation.
