Strength & Fitness Classes

Pilates is an exercise system that helps to build strength and flexibility in the body by emphasizing the use of one’s core. Lengthening from a strong center helps to develop toned muscles without bulk. Originally developed as a rehabilitative system, important principles within Pilates help to improve overall physical health, including posture and joint health, and it promotes mindful well being and positive body awareness.

Come sculpt, tone, and align your entire body while you move to music and have fun! Body Barre is rooted in Pilates, Yoga and Dance, but the moves require more strength and stamina than innate grace, so even if you have two left feet, you’ll be able to follow along. No tutus required….wear comfortable workout clothes and expect to go barefoot. Moves are designed to create longer stronger muscles, firmer bottom, toned core….all while improving flexibility and posture.

BOOM was developed by leading fitness experts to improve strength, flexibility and endurance in convenient 30-45 minute workouts. These classes will challenge you, but don’t worry: One-handed pushups aren’t required. Incorporate athletic exercises that boost overall fitness. Move through muscle-conditioning blocks and activity-specific drills to improve strength and functional skill.  Sneakers Required. If you have SilverSneakers benefit, this class is FREE.

PULSE will help you improve strength, flexibility and endurance by using alternating intervals of cardio and weight bearing exercises. You’ll be challenged and encouraged to push yourself to reach your next fitness level! Sneakers required.
