The core class is a training session that is a must for both athletes and more sedentary people. The core is an area that covers the entire abdominal region and the lower back. It comprises the oblique muscles, rectus abdominis, pelvic floor, diaphragm, multifidus and the most important muscle of all: the transverse abdominal muscle.
It is a bit like a corset around our body which, among other things, protects our organs. Good core muscles act as a shield and frame around the internal organs, which is essential for this area that is unprotected due its lack of bone structure.
B.S.L. stands for Buttocks, Stomach and Legs. These classes are designed to tone these parts of your body. It is a set of exercises aimed at strengthening and toning these parts of the body, which are the ones most usually affected by a sedentary lifestyle. Music is used as to provide support and motivation, to make the classes more dynamic and fun.
The benefits of BSL include helping to fight cellulitis and muscular imbalance in the hips by strengthening the buttocks.
Additionally, strengthening the abdominal area helps to create a sort of support band around the stomach, which improves back problems and protects internal organs.
Strengthening the legs is also essential for the stability of the body, especially for people who lead a sedentary lifestyle due to their work or studies.
These instructor-led toning classes are generally used as tools that help to increase the intensity of exercises and they often involve loads and resistance.
By toning the muscles, body fat and weight are reduced. A physique with a lower body weight means better overall health as it benefits the heart, joints and skeletal system. If you have a toned body, you will have higher endurance, energy and flexibility and you may also reduce the risk of developing certain diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.
Muscle toning exercises can also improve your mental health, especially when combined with cardio and strength exercises. Studies have shown that people who regularly do exercise have more energy, lower stress levels, more confidence in themselves and higher self-esteem.

La Perla’s indoor cycling
La Perla’s indoor cycling classes are another story altogether. This is why we have designed our own class methods, La Perla Cycling.
To start with, in our facilities you can use the best machine for this type of class: the Keiser M3. A bike that allows you to control countless parameters, such as resistance, pedal power, revolutions per minute, etc.
All classes are assisted by a computer program that allows you to see, in real time (online), the stage profile and the current class situation on a huge screen.
And, to top it all off, we have the most modern heart rate monitoring telemetry system available on the market, by POLAR. This system allows us to monitor the heart rates of all of the students currently in the class in real time (online) and fully customise their training, despite being in a group session of this kind.
