Class Descriptions

PiYo

PiYo combines the muscle-sculpting, core-firming benefits of Pilates with the strength and flexibility of flowing yoga movements. You’ll use your body weight to perform a series of continuous, targeted moves to define every single muscle—big and small.

Tabata

Tabata is a type of high intensity interval training. This training protocol involves performing a particular exercise (or exercises) at high intensity for 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest. This is repeated 8 times for a total training time of 4 minutes per exercise.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga in America. It is the branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. Hatha yoga uses bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. There are nearly 200 hatha yoga postures, with hundreds of variations, which work to make the spine supple and to promote circulation in all the organs, glands, and tissues. Hatha yoga postures also stretch and align the body, promoting balance and flexibility.

Senior Fit

Because the aging process affects all the systems of the body, effective training strategies have been developed to improve flexibility, endurance, strength and optimal function in older-adult clients. This class consists of strength training using hand held free weights, cardiovascular training at both high and low intensity options, core stability and balance training using both standing and mat work options, and flexibility training.

Urban-Kick

UrbanKick® is an innovative, exciting and athletic format workout that is taking group X schedules by storm! UrbanKick® takes a sports conditioning approach and combines punch and kick sequences with H.I.I.T. drills, for a multi-level, fun and heart-healthy workout. We have borrowed from different martial art techniques to create a total body workout that incorporates steady state cardiovascular training, metabolic boosting H.I.I.T. training and functional body-weight strength training for a dynamic and efficient workout. UrbanKick® challenges your body in all planes of motion so you are constantly developing strength, agility, flexibility and balance more than you would doing traditional cardiovascular workouts like cycling or running. Every UrbanKick® class expertly balances the need for familiar moves and format (to ensure the class is welcome to all levels of ability), along with the need to keep the sequences fresh, innovative, exciting, and most importantly — fun

Zumba

Zumba is a popular fitness program inspired by Latin dance. The word "Zumba" comes from a Colombian word that means to move fast and have fun, which is just how people describe the routine. Using upbeat Latin music together with cardiovascular exercise, Zumba is aerobic dancing that is lots of fun and easy to learn.
