Class Descriptions

Group Fitness and Spinning® Class Descriptions

Classes are scheduled monthly.  Each month a new schedule will be posted.

  • ABS:  A core strengthening class targeting the abdominals and lower back.

  • BOOT CAMP:  A combination of cardio and body weight strength elements set up to challenge you & to keep the heart rate elevated for a great workout! 
  • H.I.I.T: H.I.I.T- High Intensity Interval Training-   HiiT workouts are only 15 to 30 minutes in duration, including the warm up. All HiiT workouts follow a similar strategy of short and intense workout sessions that alternate a high intensity work interval with a lighter intensity recovery interval. Trains and conditions both your anaerobic and aerobic energy systems. HiiT is hands down one of the best ways to burn fat without causing your body to burn your own muscle tissue.

HiiT is a special type of interval training that also offers the important advantage of continuing to burn fat for many hours after your workout has ended. The HIIT approach to cardio exercise is very physically demanding and isn’t for everyone

·         INTERVAL BLAST:  The ultimate combination of cardio and strength training using a variety of techniques. Research shows that interval training is more beneficial than a single component workout.
