Total Body Training (formerly Bootcamp Fitness): This exciting class is full of fun challenges to keep its participants engaged and getting a full body workout. "TBT" incorporates calisthenics and strength training with aerobic exercise bouts. Look for something different and challenging with each class session. All levels are encouraged to attend this class as the instructors can easily tailor workouts to suit all fitness levels.

Indoor Cycling : Designed for all levels, this cycling class offers a challenging opportunity to get your heart pumping, burn calories, and leave you with a feeling of accomplishment and perhaps a desire to be out on the road.

Kettle + Conditioning : Kettle bells can be an effective training tool to add to any cardio or strength regimen. This class is designed to incorporate this tool within a class that provides a total body conditioning workout. Instructors will educate on proper form and safety within a challenging workout.

Pilates + Sculpt : This non-aerobic workout is designed to condition and tone the muscles of the body. Balls, bands, free weights and even your own body weight can be used during this class to create a total body workout. Pilates exercise will also be incorporated to tone and sculpt the body. The class is easily tailored for beginner to intermediate exercisers.

Yoga : A form of physical activity that enhances both the physical and mental states. This class involves full body postures to improve muscle tone and flexibility. Please provide your own mat.

Yoga + Pilates : Can’t decide between a yoga class or a Pilates class? Choose a combination of both! This class is designed to focus on inner strength while also improving core and posture. Please provide your own mat.

Zumba® : This one of a kind combination of dance and exercise is designed to put "fun" back into fitness. The Zumba® workout maximizes conditioning and total body toning.

No previous dance experience is needed to have fun with Zumba®!

Rev Up or Restore: This 30-minute class gives participants the option of taking an energizing workout, to choose more of a restorative class based on how you feel that day and what your body needs!
