Barre is a combination of postures inspired by ballet and other disciplines like yoga and Pilates. The barre is used as a prop to balance while doing low-impact exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements. Barre also incorporates light handheld weights to bring the burn to all those reps, as well as mats for targeted core work.
Indoor cycling, often also called spinning, as an organized sport, is a form of exercise with classes focusing on endurance, strength, intervals, high intensity and recovery, and involves using a special stationary exercise bicycle with a weighted flywheel in a classroom setting.
Flow and Restore yoga is a deliciously balanced practice to both uplifts and relax you – beginning with a nourishing flow and ending with big renewal through restorative poses (calming postures using props such as blankets, bolsters, blocks, straps), this class is a guaranteed mix of the best of both worlds, providing peace and restoration.
Get ready for our high-intensity class! HIIT is a popular training method used by athletes and fitness enthusiasts all over the world. HIIT is known as high-intensity interval training and involves repeated bouts of high-intensity effort followed by different recovery times. HIIT workouts are stated to burn more calories than traditional exercises. Make sure to always listen to your body and push as hard as you can until your next recovery time.
Intro to Functional Training is a class that will be taking place in our new Functional Training Room. The combination of resistance training (weights), plyometrics (explosive jumping movements), bodyweight exercise and strategic cardio keeps your body guessing and helps push through the plateaus. This class will allow you to learn about the equipment in our new studio and help you gain knowledge to use it during our open hours.
Strength and Conditioning is the selection and development of dynamic exercises used to improve physical performance. Proper strength and conditioning allows an athlete to strengthen supporting muscles, even out muscle imbalances, increase mobility, correct posture, stabilize joints, learn new movement patterns, enhance coordination and peripheral skills, and so much more. Workouts are a full body strength and conditioning circuit suitable for any age and fitness level.
TRX® Suspension Trainer, a highly portable performance training tool that leverages gravity and the user’s body weight to complete hundreds of exercises. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance. The TRX® Suspension Trainer delivers a fast, effective total-body workout, helps build rock-solid abdominals, increases muscular endurance, and benefits people of all fitness levels.
Vinyasa Yoga is a flowing, dynamic sequence of poses that is one of the most popular styles of yoga in the United States. Also sometimes called “Vinyasa Flow Yoga,” this type of practice involves synchronizing the breath with a continuous flow of postures. The fluid, almost dance-like movements increase flexibility, strength, and stamina, as it calms the mind and improves overall health.
Perfect For everybody! Each Zumba® class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on. Zumba takes the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called an exercise in disguise. A total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance, and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.
For your convenience, if you cannot make our in-person group fitness classes or want to take an extra class on your own, we’ve recorded them for later. Classes are available on our Youtube channel.
