Are full-body ballet-inspired workouts. They use a chair and either a set of small weights or resistance bands, and are suitable for pregnant and postnatal ladies up until any core work or lying on tummies / backs for pregnant ladies. These usually come at the very end of the class, and should be skipped - just take the stretch at the end!
Body Conditioning Classes
Are full body workouts using weights. They feature an old-school aerobics-style cardio warm-up, HIIT section and conditioning (including core).
As a rough guide, I use 5kg plates for the majority of the class, swapping to 2.5kg for the first set of shoulder work - bearing in mind I regularly perform this kind of training. Use what weights you have available and feel are appropriately challenging (even if it's a bottle of wine).
The workout is only suitable for pre and postnatal ladies if they are experienced in this kind of training, and the should not work too hard. The final tracks on the mat are unsuitable for pregnant ladies; postnatal ladies can do the first mat track with care, but should not do the final abs track.
