What is Pure Tone?
Pure Tone is a class that will give your body an all over workout and welcomes all levels of fitness. Set to a soundtrack of inspirational beats, you’ll be working on a series of exercises throughout the whole workout. The great thing about joining a class is that you’ll find that other members and a personal trainer will be there to encourage and motivate you throughout the class. What you do in each class can change week by week but you can expect a variety of weighted and non-weighted exercises. This keeps the workouts fresh and exciting and will allow you to work and challenge your muscles in different ways. Pure Tone usually last about 20 to 40 minutes.

What type of exercises will I do in this class?
Pure Tone allows for full body exercises, as well as exercises that target specific areas of the body. All personal trainers will have their own workout routine but here is an example of a workout you can expect.
The Warm Up
Exercises you’ll find in the warm up are targeted at increasing the heart rate and warming up the muscles. This will get the body ready for exercises that require a little more effort. The warm could last anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes.
Here are some example warm up exercises:
- High knees
- Jumping Jacks
- Static body weight squat
- Arm circles
The Main Workout
Now for the main workout! The personal trainer will go through what exercises you’ll be doing but don’t worry if you’re not familiar with the exercises, as the personal trainer will demonstrate them. Typically, the number of reps, sets and rest period will vary week by week and personal trainer to personal trainer, and the duration of the class.
Here are exercises you could expect in the main workout:
- Weighted Squats
- Push up
- Lying leg lifts
- Weighted lunges
- Barbell Bent over row
- Mountain climbers
Make the most out of working out in a group by giving it all that you’ve got!
The Cool Down
Cue relaxing music and 5-10 minutes of light stretches that will set you up for the day ahead or a great night’s sleep.
