Class Description

Hatha YOGA with Shaina:
Hatha Yoga concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. Bodily postures, breathing techniques and meditation work together to bring about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. Postures work to make the spine supple, promote circulation and improve balance and flexibility.

Mat PILATES with Helen:
A no impact, challenging workout with a focus on core strength and flexibility. Your core (upper/lower and oblique abdominals, hip flexors and low back) is the power house of your body, “put to test” in virtually every move you make throughout your day. Pilates with Helen is a “fusion” class, incorporating body-weight strength movements with some cardio and basic yoga. It’s great for everyone – especially those of you with knee or back issues who seek a challenging, low impact workout.

FitClass with Mike and FitClass with Helen:
FitClass is a TOTAL BODY workout that incorporates STRENGTH, CARDIO, CORE and FLEXIBILITY with a blend of some of today’s most popular and effective workouts. It’s a fusion of  Bootcamp, Pilates, Yoga, Kickboxing, Plyometrics, Pure Strength and Pure Cardio. Each trainer adds their own twist, so you’ll never do the same class twice! Modifications for exercises are offered to make FitClass great for all fitness levels, even those of you with back or knee issues.

Kickboxing combines elements of boxing, martial arts, and aerobics to provide overall physical conditioning and toning. Stretching and traditional exercises such as jumping jacks and push-ups are followed by a kickboxing session.

Bootcamp is military-inspired workouts designed to burn serious calories.  They are built on three fundamentals of training—cardio, strength, and agility. They are more intense than any fitness class and more fun than traditional gym workouts.

Pure Strength is a weight-based program. The classes are performed to music using free weights-plates, barbells and an aerobic step. Participants choose their weights based on the exercise and their personal goals. Major muscle groups are worked via a series of exercises including squats, presses, dead lifts. The focus is towards muscle endurance.

Pilates is a body conditioning routine that helps build flexibility and enhances core strength. It brings increased reach, flexibility, sure-footedness and agility.  The emphasis is placed on breathing to relieve stress and to allow adequate oxygen flow to muscles.

Plyometrics are exercises involving quick, explosive movements designed to increase speed and power. The exercises consist of three phases:  a rapid muscle lengthening movement, a short resting period, and an explosive muscle shortening movement. Repetition and increasing the speed of these phases promotes one’s speed and power.

Pure Cardio workouts are plyometric drills on top of nonstop intervals of strength, power, resistance, and ab and core training moves. No equipment or weights just long bursts of maximum-intensity exercises with short periods of rest. Each workout alternates between aerobic and anaerobic intervals performed at your MAX.

Stretching is an often overlooked but extremely important component of a balanced fitness regimen. Stretch classes will help you to learn the proper techniques for stretching to increasing your flexibility, relax your muscles, avoid unnecessary injury and will result in better posture.
