Kettlebell Fitness: With busy schedules we understand multitasking and 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! 

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.

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 utilizing 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 Fondas class anymore!

Great for athletes who want to continue working on agility and stamina or us regular folks who like to change things up and keep challenging themselves. (Not recommended for those with chronic knee, hip or back injuries.) As to provide the safest workout possible, we recommend Not wearing running shoes for this class. The grooves can sometimes catch on a step and interfere with movement.

Tabata: Tabata is a form of 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. This specific type of HIIT training works in 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off intervals for the ULTIMATE high/low workout. 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! 

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.
