    Has anyone done circuit training? Im really tempted as ive heard its a great workout but everytime i go past the studio its very 'blokey' and looks pretty intense. Ive tried things like zumba and step but have absolutely no co-ordination and prefer things like spin or boxing.

    Thank you! x

    its brilliant.

    last few times ive been ive been the only girl in there literally, dosent matter though. just becuase theres no dance moves or aerobics dosent mean its for men and women dont do it :D i love it.

    its quite intense though, not many breaks and a tough workout. all worth it though! go for it, even if your the only female in there :p

    i prefer weights over cardio, and weights are hardly girly are they? :) i actually hate the typical female classes (aerobics ect) tried them but not hard enough for me

    So I went to circuit training! Nowhere near as tough as everyone makes out! More conditioning stuff but without a break so a good extra to throw into a fitness plan. Thanks for the feedback everyone! X

    think it depends on the classes, theres two at my gym. ones easier than the other. the harder one is quite tough, i prefer that one.
