Paramount Recreation Club - Paramount Workout

Paramount-recreation-club-sydney

TL;DR

Paramount Recreation Club’s Paramount Workout is a 60 min class split into four sections: movement, strength, conditioning, and stretch. It’s a full body, functional work out set in an open air studio.

Format/Equipment

  • Fitness clothes + sneakers.

  • 60 mins.

  • Four fifteen minute sections: (i) warm up movements (think lunges, planks, squats), (ii) strength (think deadlifts, weighted squats, weighted lunges, glute work), (iii) conditioning (think cardio-focused exercises, like kettlebell swings, rowing, push ups, skierg), and (iv) stretching.

  • The strength section focuses on a different body part each day. For instance, we did lower body push one day and lower body push on another day.

  • Each section occurs in a distinct part of the studio.

  • Most days, a new group of people will start every fifteen minutes, so there will be a pack before and after your group.

Hard AF?!

  • The strength round and conditioning rounds are challenging.

  • For the strength round, you’ll want to push as hard as you can because you only have fifteen minutes.

  • For the conditioning round, same, but the moves are difficult, so you’ll be super happy when the fifteen minutes are up.

  • Instructors are very strict with their fifteen minutes, so you may not get to complete full rounds of the exercises in the strength and/or conditioning sections.
