A typical BAT class at UC RecCentre

After warming up, you can expect to work all three areas using a variety of equipment - step platforms, pump bars, swissball, slides, dynabands, mats, medicine balls or handweights. You’ll finish with a well earned stretch.  Instructors change their exercise selection with every class.

BAT is for beginners or experienced exercisers

Options are provided for beginners through experienced participants where appropriate.  Over time, you’ll gain the confidence and strength to attempt the more challenging options.

Benefits of participating in BAT

  • Strengthen your core for better posture
  • Shape and tone your butt, abs and thighs
  • Improve your balance

How often should you do BAT?

2-3x per week is the recommended maximum.
Allow 1-2 days rest between classes. Your body needs recovery time for best results.
On those days inbetween try other activities to stay active, including our other GF classes.
