Class Descriptions

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.

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
High intensity workout that will target on getting your heart rate and body temperature up! The workout will be a total of 45 minutes and will consist of upper and lower body movement patterns that will increase your heart rate in a short amount of time. Each bout of high intensity will be followed by a short recovery. The exercises will be repeated multiple times to get the most out of the high intensity work and to train the heart to recover more efficiently. The class will end with a cool-down to stretch out the muscles worked during class.

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.

Yoga
An energizing and rejuvenating class welcomes all levels of “yogis.” Focus on pranayama breathing with movement while creating strength and flexibility through a vinyāsa flow. You will leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Zumba
A Zumba workout mixes body sculpting movements with dance steps derived from cumbia, merengue, salsa, reggaeton, hip hop, mambo, rumba, flamenco, 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.
