BARRE
This 45-50 minute class is about the physical as well as the aesthetic benefits of lengthening muscles while strengthening them. Combines pilates, youga and ballet moves to give you beautiful lean muscles. The Barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training combined with high reps of small range of motion movement. Light weights, gliding disks and bender balls may be used, as well as mats for the warm up and targeted core work.

BODY SCULPT
This is a strength-conditioning class with concentration on function and fitness using a variety of equipment.

A cardio-based class mixed with intervals of body sculpting exercises using your own body weight and other equipment such as dumbbells, exercise balls and weighted bars.

CONDITIONING/ABS
Sports conditioning, agility, cardio, strength mixed with a lot of abs!

CYCLING
Cycling will get the feet moving and the heart pumping by combining strength and endurance components associated with cycling. Jump, run and climb your way through a session of aerobic and anaerobic training on a stationary bike. All levels welcome.

GENTLE MOVEMENT/QUIET MIND

GENTLE YOGA
This class will be an introduction for beginners, or an easier class for those recovering from injury or who enjoy a gentler practice.

MUSCLE MANIA

PIYO
A fun challenging class fusing Pilates and Yoga. You will burn calories, tone muscles, work on balance, and get a great stretch.

TRX
This is a 45-minute full-body strength workout that utilizes a person’s own body weight instead of relying on machines or dumbbells. It’s good for endurance athletes, power lifters, and fitness newbies alike. Comparable to a simple version of reformer pilates or antigravity yoga, TRX offers a total-body workout, centered on your core and relying on your body weight.

TRX EXPRESS
This class is the same as our TRX class, but only 30 minutes instead of 45 minutes.

WORK IT CIRCUIT
This fun, high-intensity 25-minute effective body-changing circuit class will improve strength, stamina and endurance. The workout consists of 10 two-minute stations with 30 seconds of active transitions. It’s formulated to provide a mix of cardio and resistance. No need to be there as soon as the class starts – jump on the circuit any time!

YOGA MULTI-LEVEL
In Hatha Yoga, you will learn the yoga postures (asana), breathing practices (pranayma), and deep meditation.

ZUMBA
This is a one-hour class that combines Latin, International and pop music with dance moves. Zumba routines incorporate interval training — alternating fast and slow rhythms. This class gets you moving in ways you never thought you could. It’s a fun, fitness dance party and has been called “exercise in disguise.”

ZUMBA CORE
This is just like our one hour Zumba class, but it’s only 45 minutes. After dancing for about 35 minutes, you can expect a great core workout!

ZUMBA STEP
Looking to strengthen and tone your legs and glutes? Step right up. We combine the awesome toning and strengthening power of Step aerobics, with the fun fitnessparty that only Zumba brings to the dance-floor.
