BODY PUMP - Introductory class Free - BodyPump started originally in New Zealand by Les Mills in 1991, Body Pump has now taken hold globally as a great class for people of all levels of fitness. Your body will tone up as you gain muscle and as the fat drops off you will notice improved shape and definition around your body. You will perform a 45-60 minute long workout. We will take you through a warm up with light weights initially to get you ready for the intense workout. You then complete an intense muscle and cardio workout using a barbell. Each of the major muscle groups are worked in turn including chest, back, shoulders and abdominals. This ensures maximum calorie burn and toning as it hits every area of your body.

Aloe Vera is the most powerful medicinal herb because of its many uses and healthful effects. In addition to having soothing and rejuvenating effect on your skin, aloe vera gel also benefits your health in a number of ways.

  1. Coughs and Colds How to use:
    • Cut open a leaf and scoop out the jelly-like substance from it
    • On slow heat, heat the gel on a pan for 2-3 minutes
    • Consume it to get rid of cough and cold
  2. Facials How to use:
    • Take an aloe vera leaf, peel the outer covering and extract the gel from inside
    • Apply the gel on the scars and leave it for 30 minutes, and wash it off with cold water
    • Apply the gel two times a day for best results
  3. Relieves constipation Aloe vera is a laxative and thus, extremely beneficial in relieving constipation. It increases the ability of your gut to absorb nutrients and digest food properly. How to use:
    • Scoop out the gel from an aloe vera leaf
    • Mix 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel with 1 tablespoon of apple cider juice
    • Consume this for at least 3 consecutive days to relieve constipation
  4. Prevents wrinkles - Aloe vera can protect you from wrinkles and other signs of aging. It contains polysaccharides that stimulate the regeneration of skin cells. It also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that prevent the skin from the damage of the ultraviolet rays. How to use:
    • Cut open an aloe vera leaf and extract the gel
    • Add 1 tablespoon of cucumber juice to it and mix well
    • Add 3 drops of rose water to the mixture
    • Apply it to your face and leave the mixture for 15 minutes
    • Apply this once every day to reduce the signs of aging
  5. Reduces dandruff Aloe vera has antiviral and antifungal properties that can kill the microorganisms and prevent the hair follicles from clogging that can cause dandruff. How to use:
    • Extract aloe vera gel from aloe vera plant and apply it on your scalp
    • Leave it for 30 minutes and later wash your hair with a mild shampoo
    • For best results, apply it directly on your scalp without oiling your hair
