Cycle

Cycle is a cardio-based class performed entirely on a stationary spin bike. Exercises mimic road cycling, incorporating hills, jumps, and sprints.

 

Dance

MixxedFit® 

A mix of explosive dancing and bodyweight toning. The routines feature aerobic interval training with a combination of fast and slow rhythms. 

Zumba® / Zumba Toning®/ Zumba Step® / Aqua Zumba®

Zumba is a Latin-derived dance workout. Zumba Toning® incorporates all the elements of traditional Zumba® with added weights. Zumba Step® utilizes Aerobic step platforms.  Aqua Zumba® blends high-energy Zumba® moves with low-impact aqua fitness. 

 

Flexibility

Yoga

Yoga is a mind-body practice centered around intention, breath, and posture. While yoga practice may take many forms—from Yin to Vinyasa--classes labeled “Yoga” may alternate between different styles. Vinyasa yoga is vigorously paced with an added focus on strength. Yin yoga is gentler and slower-paced practice. Hatha yoga is a series of forceful poses designed to create heat in the body.

Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal Yoga incorporates gentle stretching and breathing exercises appropriate for expecting mothers. There is a heavy emphasis on pranayama (breath work) to prepare pregnant individuals for labor. While Prenatal Yoga is designed with pregnancy in mind, it is open to all patrons.
