A fitness routine with a series of exercises and short breaks between, circuit training at Kamalaya can be either for a prescribed time or a number of repetitions. One circuit is complete when all the chosen combination exercises are done. Our trainers offer multiple circuits in a single training session. It can be the ideal form of fitness training if you want to step up your exercise routine as it is an efficient, quick full-body workout that combines strength training and cardio.

Reformer Pilates
Reformer Pilates is highly effective in toning, lengthening, and stretching the muscles in a low-impact routine with controlled and repetitive movements. Reformer Pilates can help develop core strength and improve posture. The core workout strengthens the core, reducing the risk of back injury. Despite being a low-impact workout, it can help you get in better shape while peaking energy levels. Like yoga, Pilates is also a mind-body exercise that helps coordinate the mind, body, and spirit.

Super stretching can effectively improve mobility and support your fitness goals. Our passive stretching exercises increase the blood flow and power your muscles to perform better as it is a combination of Thai massages and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) stretching. Super stretching improves your flexibility faster than self-stretching. It prevents muscle injury and reduces muscle soreness, making you feel more relaxed. It also recovers muscles after exercise so you can feel re-energised to do your workouts the following day.

HIIT is an intense exercise that alternates between low-intensity exercises with some recovery periods. It is an effective exercise that helps to build your stamina and endurance in a short period.
