Group Fitness

Serious about working out? Take a look at our current group fitness schedule. Bring a friend, and get in shape together!

Not sure what the classes are all about? No fear, we've broken it down for you:

  • 3-2-1 HIT – Blast your cardio fitness level through the roof with a full class of the best of any type of cardio training the instructor feels like throwing at you! Some days you may do kickboxing, some days step, some days high/low impact, some days sports conditioning – but bottom line, you will challenge your aerobic and anaerobic thresholds every time. Come prepared to sweat, breathe hard and get super fit!
  • AQUA-ROBICS – This invigorating class held in the pool improves cardiovascular conditioning, muscular strength and endurance using the buoyancy and resistance of the water to give you a safe, effective, fun and "no sweat" workout. It also allows a break from "impact" on the body so you are getting a great workout without pounding your joints, ligaments and tendons.
  • INSANITY® DVD – This fitness sensation will challenge you like never before and you will have fun beating the challenge as you shed those pounds away!
  • KISS MY ABS – This workout will tighten and strengthen that midsection and improve your balance.
  • OLD SKOOL STEP – "Step aerobics" wasn't created until 1989, and it was developed as way to get a high intensity, yet low impact workout. With a portable platform with height adjustable risers, you will do choreographed exercise routines up, onto, down and around the step for great cardio fitness, as well as exceptional training to shape the lower body. Your coordination will be tested at times! If you want strong legs, a lifted butt and a functionally fit core – step this way!
  • PILATES – This mat workout is based on techniques developed by Joseph Pilates which includes concentrated work on core strength, body alignment and muscular balance. The overall goal of Pilates is to lengthen and tone the muscles of the core without adding bulk. If you are looking for that long, lean dancer body this is the class for you!
  • ROCK BOTTOM – Have you been looking for a class that specifically targets the "problem areas" of the lower body? This 30 minute format caters to those areas we all want to get firmer – toned thighs, lifted butts and slender hips are just some of the benefits you will receive from taking the "Rock Bottom" challenge!
  • YOGA – A Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures, which is widely practiced for health and relaxation. A regular yoga practice will help transform both your mind and body ultimately helping you find an inner calmness/peace, enhance your balance and stability, and leave you feeling stronger and more centered.
  • ZUMBA® Fitness – Ditch the workout and join the party! This fun and easy to follow cardio dance class combines high-energy and motivating Latin music with unique moves and combinations that make you feel like you are partying on the dance floor. Easy to follow, and something everyone can do - Zumba is the best way to "dance away your worries". We promise, exercise has never been so fun!
