Content of ECTS sports subject

  • Different types of aerobics or group exercise as a form of general physical and especially condition preparation.
  • Technique of moving structures in selected genres of aerobics and integration into simple choreography.
  • Exercise to strengthen major muscle groups, exercises for body shaping, stretching and other methods of flexibility exercises to improve endurance, coordination, balance and precision.
  • Various forms of relaxation.
  • Monitoring the effects of exercising.

AEROCLASSIC is a primal workout aerobics, covering the composition of choreography, transitions from easier to harder, from basic steps to aerobics dance moves and athletic elements. After the aerobic part of the exercises for strengthening individual muscle groups are the exercises where one works with his own weight on the floor, but the workout concludes with stretching.

AEROFLOW is the exercise in which we do not practice within the strict limits of aerobic choreography and music, but perform interrelated exercises by segment. The purpose of the exercise is to conquer the movement of individual sets of muscle groups of the whole body and not just as a tonic but also an expansion in the movement of static , the ¾ cycle. Music is a bit more subdued and we do not dictate a wild pace , but it is more in depth ( "deep muscle workout" ).

TNZ (Abs, Bums, Thighs) is an effective fitness workout that strengthens all muscle groups, where emphasis is set on the " critical " female zones, abdomen , legs , buttocks. As we practice in a group under the instructor's pace with pleasant music, time passes quickly.

AEROSTRETCH covers sets of dynamic exercises (choreographed) and static stretching in conjunction with the new technique of the Nirvana fitness centre, where great emphasis on breathing techniques is given to increase lung capacity and improve blood circulation in the whole body, and learn how to most effectively utilize breath in conjunction with each movement.

This is the morning hour of awakening the body, mind and spirit, for efficient and thorough stretching of every muscle in the body, and by the time we leave we are rejuvenated and full of energy. Stretching is a very impoverished part of general sessions, which often lack knowledge in this area, and we want this hour to teach students the proper execution of exercises, to enrich their knowledge and provide exercises as a prevention against damage or selection of appropriate exercises after injuries.
