Body Sculpt

This class is designed to help strengthen and tone your body using free weights and other equipment to increase health and fitness.

Cycling

Group Spinning is for all fitness levels and is designed for beginning riders up to spinning enthusiasts. This class has minimal impact and allows you to vary your intensity level using the bicycle’s resistance knob. This class provides you with a great cardio workout that challenges your lower body! All spinning participants should bring a bottle of water and a towel to class.

NEW! Freedom BANG

BANG is a pre-choreographed urban fusion of boxing, HIIT, hip hop, dance and some serious attitude. There are 3 levels of intensity. For EVERY body.

Muscle Mix

This class utilizes free weights, bands, tubing and medicine balls to develop overall muscle tone. Emphasis is placed on strengthening the core muscle groups to improve posture and balance while creating a more toned and fit looking body.

PiYo

PiYo combines the muscle-sculpting benefits of Pilates with the strength and flexibility advantages of Yoga. Using just your own body weight, you’ll perform a series of high intensity, low impact moves that will work every single muscle for a long, lean and incredibly defined physique. No weights. No jumps. Just hardcore results.

Power Camp

A challenging full-body workout focusing on cardio, flexibility, and strength that includes cardio intervals and 15 minutes of core exercise.

SH1FT/L1FT

SH1FT/L1FT is a total body workout. You exercise, using your own bodyweight for resistance. The program is based on a fitness method called "max interval training." In traditional interval training, you exercise at a very intense pace for a short period of time and then rest for longer periods in between. The idea is to increase your aerobic workout level while burning fat.

SilverSneakers Classic

Improves strength, flexibility, posture, and balance. Exercise at your own pace with resistance tools including bands, balls, and weights.

SilverSneakers Stability

Stability is the newest class designed to help you become stronger and improve balance. The movements taught in class focus on specific exercises to improve strength and power around the ankle, knee, and hip joints, while improving your reaction time. This class is designed for fall prevention and is suitable for nearly every fitness level. It can be adapted depending on the skill of individual participants. A chair may be used for balance and support.

Tai Chi & Intro to Tai Chi

The Tai Chi Program is designed to improve the quality of life for all people. Intro to Tai Chi is gaining popularity as an evidence-based and cost-effective health intervention that works for any population. It used slow and careful movement without strain to strengthen the body's own healing forces and is medically proven to support disease prevention, accelerate healing and reduce stress. 

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using the breath. At times the 'flow' or cadence of the class is upbeat, others a little more relaxing. The intention is to mindfully coax tension away, leaving you with a sense of health and calm. A variety of interesting and traditional poses are offered in this student tailored class. Perfect for all levels of practitioner.

Yoga

Unwind, rejuvenate, reduce stress, lower blood pressure and increase flexibility! Great for the body, mind, and soul! A yoga sticky mat is recommended, but exercise mats will be available for your use. All levels are welcome!

Zumba®

This is the hottest fitness class around with classes forming all over the globe. Zumba combines forms of Latin dance styles (Salsa, Merengue, Mambo and Hip Hop). This makes for an exciting, fun aerobic workout. All ages and levels are welcome.
