Class Descriptions

Spinning

A fusion of outdoor riding techniques transferred to the Indoor Cycle for a unique, user-friendly ride that will give you a great cardio workout. Feel your energy surge with this fun, high-powered cycling class including drills, hills and sprints.

Barre

Set to fun and energetic music, each class incorporates an upper body workout with weights and a combination of high-intensity sequences of thigh, seat and core exercises at the barre. We always include a releasing stretch after we work a muscle group, which results in stronger and more elongated muscles while gaining flexibility. Each class is designed for you to feel invigorated, challenged, and inspired.

Hard - CORE

This abs class is thirty minutes of intense core work that focuses the entire abdominal region. Sculpt your core without doing endless crunches and sit ups!

Boot Camp

Take your fitness to the next level with Boot Camp! This hour-long class combines traditional calisthenics, strength training and weighted exercises, all in the form of high-intensity interval training. This class will make you push yourself harder than you ever have before.
 

Fab-AB-ulous

Focus in on your core strength and stability. This class is total core work. Exercises, drills and balance drills to train your inner core. Don't be afraid to sweat!

Yoga

This energizing and rejuvenating class welcomes all levels of “yogis.” Focus on breathing with movement and creating strength and flexibility through vinyasa flow. You will leave feeling relaxed and refreshed

Spin & Sculpt

Add some cross training to your cycling workout with 5 – 10 minutes of non stop upper body work with exercise tubing. Build strength and endurance in your back, chest, shoulders, biceps and triceps for a leaner look while increasing your posture on the bike.

 

Zumba

A Zumba workout mixes body sculpting movements with dance steps derived from cumbia, merengue, salsa, reggaeton, hip hop, mambo, rumba, flamenco, and calypso and Salsaton. The routines feature aerobic interval training with a combination of fast and slow rhythms. It targets areas such as the glutes, legs, arms, abdominals, and the heart. A Zumba class is typically not formulaic in that instructors often add on their own music choices and choreographies to make their class presentation locally unique.

 

 

 

Total Body Stretch

A strength training class targeting major muscle groups using various equipment and body weight. Total body incorporates bursts of cardio into movements intended to help you tone all major muscles.
