CARDIO FITCardio Fit is a full body conditioning that combines high energy cardio, plyometrics, and mobility exercises, with some strength training. This is a great workout for anyone who wants to work on endurance, manage weight, looking to increase range of motion, or just wants to work on their general fitness and have fun! Expect to use equipment such as hand weights, medicine balls, steppers, and sliders to name a few.
FUNCTIONAL FITFunctional Fit is a well rounded full body workout that combines traditional large muscle calisthenics, such as lunges, squats, and pushups, with weight distribution and balance exercise that strengthen smaller supporting muscles. The results are long lean lines, more functional strength, wider range of motion, and better balance and posture. We will use a mix of light and heavy hand weights, and spend some time on joint stability by moving our bodies dynamically in all directions.
YOGA FLOWStretch and strengthen in this all levels yoga class. If you are looking to prevent injury by gaining flexibility, reduce pain in your knees and back, gain better posture and body awareness, or are looking to learn how to take deeper breaths and relax, this class is perfect for you! It requires minimal equipment and will leave your feeling refreshed and centered.
MAT PILATESMat Pilates is all about core strength and spine health. Using classic mat Pilates exercises, you will strengthen your core, work on mobility and flexibility of the spine, and get stronger and taller. This is a great cross training workout for Golf and Tennis athletes looking to tighten their core and their swing!
BARRE FITBarre Fit is a workout technique inspired by elements of ballet, yoga, and Pilates. It focuses on low-impact, high-intensity movements designed to strengthen your body in ways that few other workouts can. In addition to building strength, this full-body workout also develops agility and flexibility, and helps lengthen your posture. You will use the barre and your body weight to focus on high reps to engage smaller, supportive muscle groups. We also incorporate tools like resistance bands, ankle weights, free weights, Pilates rings, and exercise balls to challenge the body and keep it guessing!
SLOW STRETCHYup. It’s exactly how it sounds! We humans spend most of our time in go mode, or training hard and fast. Think of this class as rehab for your muscles and a detox for your mind. We will slowly and mindfully move through deep stretches to release tension and tightness from our muscles, while supporting our bones. We will use props like straps, blocks, and foam rollers to assist and deepen the stretches.
ABS CLASSIn this 30-minute class we focus on exercises that ignite your abdomen and core muscles. Moving through classic ab exercises like crunches and sit ups, but also working on weight distribution shifts, and looking for different ways to work every dimension of your abs. This class will leave you feeling stronger, help with posture, and will teach you how to better engage your core to protect your back.
CHAIR FIT CLASSWe are very excited to be offering this new all levels fitness class, geared toward folks of all ages that are looking for some gentle movement based exercises. What better way to work out than (partly) sitting down! Get a full body workout using resistance bands, body weight and a chair.
AQUA FITNESSAqua Fitness combines the principles of Pilates and Barre class, with the water and equipment of aqua aerobics. Feeling supported by water and with no impact to the joints, you use resistance to strengthen and lengthen muscles, lubricate and heal joints, all while not breaking a sweat! This class can be as challenging or as therapeutic as you want it to be. If you want to work on pelvic stability, core, and upper body strength, add aqua ankle weights and webbed gloves!
