Our ever popular Soccercise sessions are back, running every Tuesday and Thursday evening 17:30 – 18:15 in the East Stand concourse here at Oakwell Stadium costing on £1 per person per session.
Soccercise sessions consist of an aerobic class, typically lasting 45-60 minutes, Soccercise combines a variety of fitness exercises with a football. The class is delivered to music and based on repetitions of specific exercises (i.e. press-ups, squats, sit-ups). Participants can pair up or create their own workout to do at home.
Soccercise can be tailored for all levels of fitness. It can help introduce you to football, re-familiarise those who haven’t played for a while, form part of a pre-season training programme, become part of a pre-match warm-up or just be used as an alternative way to keep fit. The inclusion of footballs adds co-ordination and core stability to familiar exercises. It builds skill and confidence of working with a football. Footballs are provided and you don’t need specialised kit just trainers and comfortable clothing.
