Pose Fitness, Weedon
A stunning dance, yoga and pilates studio set in the high ceilinged, historic buildings at Weedon Depot, Pose is a beautiful oasis with an emphasis on balancing fitness and fun
Based in the vast, light-filled, warehouse style buildings at the former Royal Ordnance Depot in Weedon Bec, Pose Fitness specialise in dance-based fitness including barre, ballet, yoga and pilates. The team here are a friendly and super-knowledgable bunch who really want to ensure that fitness can be fun and accessible for everyone, so there are classes to suit all ages and abilities.
Here, you’ll benefit from the extensive knowledge and experience of qualified fitness instructors, personal trainers and professional dancers, so you’re in expert hands. The emphasis on enjoying exercise really does mean that you’ll want to keep coming back and stay aboard your exercise wagon, with dance, in all its many forms, being a fantastically uplifting way to get regular exercise.
Founder of Pose and trained dancer Sarah Partington, believes that there are huge benefits to the classes offered here. Barre classes, for example are great for building lean muscle and core centre balance and sit in a perfect space between high intensity aerobic workouts and mat-based workouts. You’ll work much smaller and more focused muscle groups than you would doing something more fast-paced, which makes it perfect for women of a certain age as well as sports recovery and rehabilitation.
Pose offer a range of courses, drop-in classes (which do need to be booked online in advance), blocks of class passes or membership options, meaning you can make your classes work for your budget and schedule. Online streaming will continue as in-person classes resume, plus there is also a range of shorter workouts to download – ideal for those lunch time breaks when you just need to move your body.
Sarah also offers private 121 personal training and barre tuition and, possibly our favourite quirk, they hold regular themed dance nights and workshops which have included an 80s Jane Fonda workout night, Cats and Nutcracker themed dance workshops, Mindful eating workshops and Yoga Inversions workshop.
