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.

Full Body Fitness
This workout will consist of movement patterns incorporating the lower body, upper body, and core. It will start with a dynamic warm-up to get the whole body, specifically the muscles being utilized in that day's workout. Next, will be the main workout expect 30+ minutes of movement and it will end with a cool down. The class will focus on high intensity interval training (HIIT), isometrics (hold positions for extended periods of time), and functional exercises to provide a great workout!

Yoga
An energizing and rejuvenating class welcomes all levels of “yogis.” Focus on pranayama breathing with movement while creating strength and flexibility through a vinyasa 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.
