FitClassPicHelen Legacy – Certified Personal Trainer
Co-Owner, FitClass Studio
Group Fitness/BootCamp/Pilates Instructor

Thank you for your interest in FitClass with Helen.
I am a life-long fitness enthusiast and NFPT Certified Personal Trainer (CPT). As a 49-year old mother of one I’m proud to say I’m in the best shape of my life… because I practice what I preach! If your goal is to lose weight, gain lean-toned muscle, improve your cardiovascular conditioning or maybe just be able to do your daily activities of life a little easier – I can help you!

About FitClass (FC): FC with Helen is smaller group personal training. It’s an effective, 1-hour TOTAL BODY class formatted to keep you working in your target heart rate zone so you burn fat and tone muscle. I provide PERSONAL attention, motivation and professional guidance to help you reach your individual fitness goals.

FC with Helen is a fun, challenging, fast-paced interval format class that incorporates techniques from some of today’s popular workouts. In FC with Helen you will NEVER DO THE SAME ROUTINE TWICE. Your body will experience constant muscle confusion so you won’t plateau – and you don’t become bored with the same old, same old routine! An ever-expanding variety of formats include cardio, strength, core and flexibility. A blend of bootcamp drills, plyometrics, kickboxing, pilates and yoga are included to keep your body “confused” about what will come next.

FitClass with Helen is appropriate for all fitness levels. Most FC with Helen classes are high intensity (HIIT)*. Not everyone can perform exercises at the same level. Modifications and/or alternate exercises are provided to lower the intensity so you will work at a level appropriate for you. It’s very important that beginners to exercise work at a much lower intensity and slower pace. For absolute beginners, I suggest starting with 1/2 classes.
*High Intensity exercise (HIIT) should be performed 2-3 times per week. Monday and Wednesday FitClasses are designed to be a lower level intensity, while still providing a challenging workout.

So, whether you’re a novice just starting out or you’re an old pro looking for a new challenge, I promise FC with Helen will meet your fitness needs and exceed your expectations!

What to expect when setting up a consultation (and evaluation). The most difficult part of beginning a new exercise regime is that first class! You don’t know what to expect and everything may be new to you. I suggest – and prefer – a consultation prior to beginning FC with Helen. I will explain the class format in more detail and answer any questions you have. I also use this time to gather background information and understand any limitations to exercise you may have, such as common back or knee issues.

I also offer a basic* complimentary fitness evaluation. This will establish a baseline of your current fitness level. After you have consistently attended (min. 3-days/week) FC for 6-8 weeks you will take the evaluation again. Most people are amazed to see the progress they have made in such a short period of time. This helps to keep you motivated; you have proof that your body is changing and you are getting stronger.
*A more detailed evaluation is offered for a minimal fee and includes the basic evaluation + your body fat%, lean body mass, measurements and weight. Tracking your body fat and measurements are the BEST way to gauge results – NOT tracking weight!

“You can’t see CHANGE without CHALLENGE!”
I recommend attending FitClass a MINIMUM of 3-days/week. 4-days/week is the magic number for achieving desired results.

OTHER CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

Tabatas (TAB) An hour of Tabatas – talk about intense! The TAB format is 8 interval sets: 20 seconds of intense work followed by 10 seconds of active recovery (marching, side step, jumping rope). If you push yourself to your MAX you can burn up to 1000 calories!* I offer modifications to lower the impact and intensity; even when modifying the exercises most people will burn between 500-700 calories!
*Calorie-burn varies and is dependent on an individuals fitness level and the level of intensity performing the exercises.

Cardio Kickboxing (CK) Kick and punch your frustrations away with this high-energy workout! CK combines elements of boxing and aerobics to provide overall conditioning and toning. Traditional exercises such as jumping jacks and push-ups are blended with punching and kicking combinations. Light weights (no more than 3-5 lbs) can be used to incorporate a bit more intensity.

Mat Power Pilates (PP) A low impact, challenging workout with a focus on core strength and flexibility. Your core (upper/lower and oblique abdominals, low back and hip flexors) is the power house of your body, “put to test” in virtually every move you make throughout your day. PP with Helen is a “fusion” class, blending light weights and body weight strength movements with basic yoga and traditional Pilates exercises. It’s great for everyone – especially those of you with knee or back issues who seek a challenging workout with low impact.

Stations Circuit Training at it’s best – no machines required! Stations are setup using aerobic steps, medicine balls, kettle bells, dumbbells, stability and BOSU balls.  You will travel around the circuit alternating between strength and cardiovascular exercises in this fun, interval format class.

STRENGTH A variety of resistance workouts are offered to challenge your muscle strength and endurance. Increased muscle not only enhances your body composition and shape, it also increases your calorie burn at rest – like when you’re sleeping or on the couch. FC “strength” with Helen moves at a fast pace with minimal breaks (super-sets) so you will enjoy the benefit of a mild cardiovascular effect – burning a few more calories during the class too!
21′s
 and a variety of other techniques are incorporated into strength classes as well as FitClass strength segments. They include alternating contractions, pulses, isometric holds and half to full range of motion movements to effectively sculpt long, lean muscles.
Triple Drop Sets  Start as heavy as you can with good form. Work each muscle group to failure (meaning loss of form, not forced reps) three times to stimulate increased muscle mass.
Reverse Drop Sets  Start with a lighter weight. Choose your rep range : 4-6, 8-10, 12-15. Perform three to four sets and increase your weight with each set.
