If you fancy strength and conditioning, Yoga or Pilates, then funky modern Studio Zest is the place for you.
Well, where have you been all my life? Muddy has only just stumbled across fantastic Studio Zest, a Physical Wellness Studio offering bespoke classes and treatments in the heart of Tisbury. And it’s pretty blooming special, I can tell you!
Founders of Studio Zest Kate and Mark Bender opened up this fab studio three years ago, with an emphasis on physical wellbeing through the use of clinical reformer pilates and physiotherapy. Being physiotherapists, they were in a perfect position to offer a true gold standard of performance and their following quickly grew (unsurprisingly, we say). The studio now includes a full strength and conditioning rehabilitation space, where a range of cardio and strength equipment is housed, including a Versa Climber, technogym kinesis, kettlebells, water rower and eleiko olympic style lifting.
Degree qualified Strength and Conditioning coaches offer 1:1 personal training sessions, tailoring a plan to the client needs. They also run small intimate classes including boxing and Z60 (classes focussed on functional conditioning, featuring cardio and strength circuits) which have been designed by Mark Bender specifically for mobility, activation, strength and metabolic conditioning.
The new specialised Women’s Weight Lifting has also proved a huge success – we often forget the importance of strength training, especially weight lifting, with many of us fearing it will bulk us up and make us bigger, but in reality it helps with bone mineral density, cognitive function, endorphin release, fat loss, decreases blood pressure…need I go on?
As well as the Strength and Conditioning studio, Studio Zest also has a fitness studio where they put on small classes of Hot Yoga and Classical Barre. The studio uses a new Infrared heating system which, unlike traditional heat, warms the body from the inside which means you feel your BODY get really hot, rather than just the area around you. Infrared is also 15-20% more effective at eliminating toxins, improves energy and circulation, reduces tension, increases metabolism and is a source of vitamin D without the harmful rays from the sun. So what are you waiting for?
Fancy a facial? Uh, yes please! Studio Zest also offers a full range of massage and facials using Environ or Evolve products, so after all that hard work working out you can just, y’know, relax.
