YFC Studio 24 has moved to the Ugu Sports and Leisure Centre. The gym offers aerobics and many other types of fitness classes.

Fitness fanatics now have more space to show off their kicks and punches at Kata Box and their dance moves at Zumba.

There are also discounts available if you join in June.

Aerobics is an exercise that combines rhythmic aerobic exercise with stretching and strength training routines with the goal of improving all elements of fitness (flexibility, muscular strength, and cardio-vascular fitness).

With a goal of preventing illness and promoting physical fitness, practitioners perform various routines comprising a number of different dance-like exercises­. Formal aerobics classes are divided into different levels of intensity and complexity.

Both the term and the specific exercise­ method were developed by Dr Kenneth Cooper, an exercise physiologist, and Colonel Pauline Potts, a physical therapist, both of the United States Air Force. Cooper, an avowed exercise enthusiast, was personally and professionally puzzled about why some people with excellent muscular strength were still prone to poor performance at tasks such as long-distance running, swimming, and bicycling. He began measuring systematic human performance using a bicycle ergometer, and began measuring sustained performance in terms of a person’s ability to use oxygen.

In 1968, he published Aerobics, which included exercise programmes using running, walking, swimming and bicycling. The book came at a time when increasing weakness and inactivity in the population was causing a perceived need for increased exercise.

Aerobics gained world-wide popularity after the release of Jane Fonda’s exercise videos in 1982.
