Class Descriptions

Ab Attack: This 30-minute workout gets straight to the CORE of things! Designed to target the most desired muscle group with a series of specialized exercises to give you abs of steel!

Bootcamp: Get back to the basics. Old-school style exercises with an energetic new flair. Think squats, jumping jacks, sit-ups, running laps, jump rope and more! This class will get you going for the day ahead!

Foam Rolling: This 20-minute class will take you through a full body, deep tissue massage also known as myofascial release. Foam rolling is an alternative medicine therapy that is used to treat muscle immobility and pain. By applying pressure to target areas, you can release contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulate the stretch reflex in muscles to help restore your mobility and range of motion. This is great for those who are either overly sedentary or who exercise regularly.

Head to Toe: With stations set up to specifically target each major muscle group, your body will always be kept guessing on what’s next. This circuit training class is guaranteed to give you that head to toe work out every time.

HIIT: High intensity interval training (HIIT) is a type of interval training in which you alternate short, very high intensity intervals with longer, slower intervals to recover. The idea is to work in the upper percentage of your target heart rate zone, around a 9 on this Perceived Exertion Scale, meaning you go all out, as hard as you can during the work intervals. It’s the Real Deal!

Kettlebell Fitness: With our busy schedule, we understand multitasking! What better way than Kettlebell?! Kettlebell training is different from other forms of weight training because it works multiple muscle groups at once while raising the heart rate for an effective cardiovascular training session at the same time. Kettlebell truly is an all-in-one workout and is multitasking at its best!

Kickboxing with a Twist: This lunchtime treat hits all the bells and whistles for your kickboxing needs without all of the hard impact. You may find yourself adding in some light weights or some step benches for a fun twist that is sure to keep you on your toes!

Pilates: Pilates is a system of physical fitness that focuses on strengthening and stretching the core, pelvis, back and spine. Pilates uses resistance movements and the use of different poses and postures to get an isometric workout.

Pilates Barre: Barre classes integrate the fat-burning format of interval training with muscle-shaping isometrics to quickly and safely reshape the entire body. Our non-impact workout uses both the ballet barre and the mat and targets all major muscle groups. The result is the recognizable Barre body, featuring sculpted arms, flat abs, a lifted seat and elongated muscles over all. This workout also requires mental focus as muscles are strengthened and then stretched to create a longer, leaner physique.

PiYo: A unique combination of Pilates and Yoga is designed to build strength & gain flexibility. The moves fit perfectly together to form a class filled with intense choreography that’s fun, challenging and will make you sweat. It’s about energy, power and rhythm. Think sculpted abdominals, increased overall core strength and greater stability.

Silver Sneakers:  A class ideal for anyone new to fitness, with rehabilitation needs, in need of a gentler pace or for a mature soul with a young heart. Achieve weight loss, increase your energy levels, improve flexibility and range of motion which will improve your overall well-being. Focus on fitness, friends and fun.

Spin Class: This cardio class is sure to take your fitness level to new heights while riders are shown how to work harder than usual as they are lead through a series of rolling hills, sprints, jumps and tempo rides of all resistance and speeds. Spinning is a class that truly does allow riders to go at their own pace while using the motivation and skills of their energetic instructor! This is not your average bike through the park! All fitness levels welcome.

Step Class: This is NOT Jane Fonda’s class anymore! This fast-pace aerobics class  uses a bench-like tool for a series of step ups to step downs to get your heart and lungs in shape while toning your core, legs and glutes. Exceptional at developing balance and coordination. Great for athletes who want to continue working on agility and stamina or regular folks who like to change things up and keep challenging themselves. (Not recommended for those with chronic knee, hip or back injuries.)  To provide the safest workout possible, Living Well recommends not wearing running shoes for this class.  The grooves can sometimes catch on a step and interfere with movement.

Yoga: Time to wind down and de-stress with yoga. Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years to increase general health, reduce stress, improve flexibility, increase muscle strength, and alleviate certain physical symptoms, such as chronic pain. Yoga is a low-impact activity and includes gentle movements.

Zumba: This exciting dance party atmosphere is full of Latin and international inspiration. The fun and effective use of interval training combines fast and slow rhythms for an effective aerobic workout while at the same time targeting your legs, abs, glutes and arms.
