This year, embrace winter at your local Virgin Active health club (http://www.virginactive.co.uk) by getting fit Roxy-style. Don’t use the cold as an excuse to let your fitness slide; instead use the time to get in perfect gym shape ahead of sunnier times with the Roxy Sno Fit Workout. This brand new health club class has been crafted by the personal training experts at Virgin Active health clubs and professional snowboarder Lesley McKenna to carefully sculpt and tone the lower body with a unique gym workout including ViPR – a revolutionary training tube used for whole body fitness.

If you are planning on a winter sports holiday, whether skiing or snowboarding, the class will prepare your body before you hit the slopes and prevent any aching muscles. Sure to appeal to Zumba fans and group exercise newbies alike, the exclusive fitness centre class is led by one of Virgin Active’s personal trainers and focuses on the areas essential for winter sports, such as legs, hips, bum and core.

The fitness centre workout is made up of a dynamic warm-up, power moves designed to tone the lower body and a stretch and yoga warm-down. The programme is fast moving and diverse, utilising unique equipment such as ViPR, Gliding Discs and cones.

Gillian Reeves, national group exercise manager at Virgin Active health clubs, believes the health club class is the perfect winter warmer, “We’ve teamed up with professional athletes to develop a class that addresses the needs of winter sports enthusiasts but is also suitable for those wanting to have fun whilst getting in shape.”

Along with Zumba classes, MTV Urban Workout and a whole host of other group exercise classes, Roxy Sno Fit Workout is available to members in all 71 Virgin Active health clubs nationwide from 11th October 2010.
