Looking for gym advice when it comes to lower reps/heavier weight vs high reps/lighter weight.

I've long experienced good results with the tried and true method of focusing on 1-2 body parts and doing 3 sets of 10-15 reps.
Recently I joined a new gym and started going to a body sculpt class where we lift lighter weight/high reps for a full body workout. I love the class and it's extremely challenging but I feel like I'm losing my muscle and gaining a gut.
Any reason for this or is my age just catching up with me?
For the record I'm a 33yr old male, workout 3-4 days a week with a rest day between workouts, and my dietary habits have not changed.
