Group Fitness Class Descriptions

Cardio

Cardio HIIT

HIIT stands for High-Intensity Interval Training which is characterized by periods of high energy and fast heart rates, followed by recovery time where the heart rate will slow down. HIIT is known for being an extremely effective cardiorespiratory workout in a short time frame. This class will utilize the entire body with both bodyweight and equipment-based exercises. 

ZUMBA™

This Latin-inspired dance-fitness class incorporates Latin and International music and dance movements to create a dynamic, exciting, and effective fitness program. The class format combines fast and slow rhythms that challenge the body in an aerobic fashion to achieve a unique balance of cardio and muscle-strengthening benefits. Ditch the workout and join the party!

Cycling

Cycle+Core

This class is intended to spin your legs and strengthen your core using bodyweight as well as equipment (common household props used for virtual classes). This motivating and empowering class is great for those looking to make cardio and core strength gains, or incorporate an active recovery day in your week.

Rhythm Ride

This is an amazing cardiovascular workout that works well for participants of all levels. Instructors will lead you through a variety of drills on the bike, such as sprints and hills,  taught with motivating music to keep you going and ensure you get the most out of your workout time. Participants can use any stationary bike, or a bike placed on an indoor trainer, to participate in class. 

Mind and Body

Advanced Yoga

Expect this to be a challenging vinyasa yoga class with an emphasis on core work, progressions to a variety of arm and standing balance poses, inversions, back bends, and a complex and fast-paced flow. This class is geared towards participants with prior yoga experience, including sun salutations, and familiarity with safe alignment in foundational poses. These classes might also include partner work/assists and slowing down to workshop some of the "advanced" asanas. Participants can expect to take their yoga practice to the next level of difficulty.

Gentle Yin Yoga

This slow-paced and alignment-based practice facilitates ease and awareness in the body using a combination of gentle active practice, yin yoga stretches to release tension in the fascia, and restorative poses combined with simple breath and meditation techniques. Gentle Yoga is appropriate for anyone from the absolute beginner to the experienced yogi looking to bring an element of deep relaxation to their practice.

PiYo™

This class combines the strengthening benefits of Pilates with the flexibility enhancing effects of yoga. Set to music, this dynamic, energetic program will provide a full-body workout without straining your body. If you are on the hunt for a new workout, give PiYo a try, especially if you’re already a fan of pilates or yoga. You may find it’s the best of both worlds, allowing you to dive deeper into your practice.

Vinyasa Yoga

Open your heart, body, and mind in this detoxifying, vinyasa flow. Class will progress to matching one breath per movement to create strong, flow-based sequences that elevate heart rate and build warmth in the body. Intermediate poses are introduced including arm balances, backbends and prep poses for inversions. Vinyasa classes are faster paced; knowledge of yoga postures is helpful but not required.

Yoga Sculpt

Yoga Sculpt is an intense and challenging class that targets your mind and body. Sweat out toxins and build strength while you flow through asanas (yoga poses), incorporate free weights, and move with upbeat music. When aspects of cardio and strength training combine with the mindfulness of yoga, Yoga Sculpt is born. Great for participants to add into their yoga practice and also appropriate for beginners.

Pool

Deep Water Aerobics

This little-to-no impact class gives you the opportunity to get a great workout without putting any added stress on your joints. With a variety of cardio, core, and strength work you can look forward to a full-body workout, using the water to do what we can't with our feet on the ground. Deep Water X is ideal for participants of all body types and fitness levels. Participants should be comfortable swimming on their own in deep water.

PaddleEx Core

The focus of this class is having fun while using core stability to improve the overall functioning of the body. This Stand Up Paddle Board Class incorporates bodyweight exercises to challenge your balance and your core! Come dressed to get wet, but swim experience is not required.

PaddleEx Yoga

Come enjoy the practice of Yoga on a Stand Up Paddle Board! These classes take your favorite yoga routines and put them on the water! Expect to get wet and challenge your mind. Both yoga and stand up paddle boarding are great for building better balance, coordination, endurance and body strength. Previous swim experience not required.

Shallow Water Aerobics

This class takes place in the shallow end of the pool, using the buoyancy of water to lessen the impact on your joints. You can expect a variety of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) intervals, plyometrics and strength work for the upper and lower body in this effective, low-impact class. Open to all ability levels. No swim experience required

SilverSneakers®

Classic

It’s never too late to start living a longer, healthier life. SilverSneakers® classes are led by certified and supportive instructors and intended for participants ages 65+. This class incorporates seated and standing exercises to increase muscular strength, range of motion and activities for daily living.

Stability

You probably know that exercise can improve your physical health, but did you know that it can also boost your thinking skills and memory?

This standing class is designed to decrease the risk of falls with focus on improving balance and lower body strength.

Each class is a blend of an educational session and a progressive weight training program to prepare females to feel more comfortable exercising in the standard gym setting. Open to all females, this class places extra emphasis on positive body image, improving self-confidence with fitness principles, and providing options for bodies of all shapes and sizes.
