Welcome to the Hove Body Happy class page!
We have two general classifications for our classes, Total Body and Body Stability.
Our Total Body classes give you an all over workout, utilising a variety of gym equipment, as well as your own body weight, to improve your strength and cardiovascular system.
The Body Stability category includes classes, which still give you a whole body workout, focusing more on stability, movement and well-being. These classes still challenge your strength and cardiovascular system.

All levels of fitness and flexibility welcome as each exercise can be easily adapted to suit all.
You will complete a number of exercises (5-10) before resting and repeating. All participants will begin at a station – which has a specific exercise to perform. Once the prescribed time is up, the instructor will ask you to move onto the next exercise.
