A high intensity, no excuses full-body workout. We’ll be incorporating multi-joint exercises, interval training and functional movements to sculpt your body into a well-honed physique. We’ll also focus on hitting movements in every anatomical plane, while adding cardio bursts throughout the workout. If you’re ready to take your training to the next level, then this class is for you!
This class includes exercises and poses to cultivate strength, stamina, stability and flexibility with particular attention paid to building tone in the deeper postural “core” muscles. These protect the spine against injury, support the internal organs and foster pelvic and spinal awareness to promote good posture. Equipment such as blocks, resistance bands, weights, fit balls and foam rollers may also be utilized to further enhance strength and balance.
H.I.I.T. (High Intensity Interval Training)
We’ll wake you up with a dynamic set of moves that prep you for 45 minutes of work/rest effort (using dumbbells, med balls, bodyweight, resistance tubing, and more). Rest is the single greatest determinant of exercise intensity, and it’s used strategically with strength and endurance exercises to produce the maximum amount of energy you can spend.
Performed on a mat, we’ll take you through a series of controlled movements that flow together to strengthen your core muscles and lengthen the tight muscles of your lower body.
Learn to move with confidence, power and ease. In this class you will develop a strong core in order to build smart, functional movement in everyday life. Using a mindful approach that builds focus and increases connection to the body, this class helps prevent injuries and improve posture. How? We utilize a three-layer approach: Pilates exercises to build core awareness, stability and strength; Yoga to promote balance, flexibility and connection to breath; and Physical Therapeutics to learn how to work with old injuries and avoid new ones. This class complements and build on any sport or training you do regularly.
Tone & Sculpt
Progressive resistance is the key. We combine a wide variety of weight training exercises with cardio routines to give you an all- around basic workout. As you become stronger, you’ll also learn how to make each exercise more challenging. Ideal for those short on time.
Total Body Takeover
This one-hour class will work your upper body, lower body, and core utilizing different strength modalities. Expect to push, pull, lunge and squat-jump your way to a stronger, healthier you! Bring your sense of humor. Laughter is mandatory!
