TAPAC class

This fitness class with former Cirque du Soleil performer Bianca Paine is about having fun while you learn new techniques for toning your body…

Each week’s slow and controlled ‘burn class’ will focus on different parts of the body that many women struggle to keep toned, including the bum, legs and tummy.

As you learn more about how the body works and what areas are important to strengthen, you’ll learn exercises that you can continue to practice at home.

While performing with Cirque du Soleil, tutor Bianca Paine did intense rehabilitation for an injury and learnt many useful techniques for re-building her strength.

“This taught me a lot of patience but also made me become super passionate about improving our bodies and strength and I love sharing that with others! My new short course is designed with the goal of making women feel string and good about their bodies. We’ll listen to awesome, inspiring music in an encouraging, fun environment.”

This class is open to all levels of ability.
