STRONG BY ZUMBA (Ages: 16+) 

This workout combines body weight, muscle conditioning, cardio and plyometric training moves synced to original music that has been specifically designed to match every single move. Every squat, every lunge, every burpee is driven by the music, helping you make it to that last rep, and maybe even five more.


Rhythm Ride Cycling (Ages: 16+) 

This fun and challenging cardio workout will enhance your speed, strength, and stamina. Great music and motivational instructors will improve your overall physical health and endurance. This unique combination of cycle and core training emphasizes the importance of core strength as it relates to maintaining proper cycling form and endurance for sprinting and climbing. Core training will help to build a solid foundation for all aspects of physical fitness.


Total Body HIIT (Ages: 16+) 

High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) includes a core workout and ends with a unique cool down. HIIT ramps up fat burning, elevates your heart rate faster and your metabolism longer, letting you burn additional total calories in a shorter amount of time. HIIT results in EPOC, an after-burn effect which causes you to burn calories for hours after your workout is completed. Come for the challenge!


Kettlebells + Ropes (Ages: 16+) 

This class offers whole-body exercises requiring full body interation and core stabilization. Kettlebell training will build long lean muscles, improve strength and power in the upper body, core and lower body and increase coordination, joint mobility and overall endurance. 


HATHA YOGA (Ages: 16+) 

A slow-paced stretching class with some simple breathing exercises and meditation. This is a good place to learn basic poses, relaxation techniques, and become comfortable with yoga. Yoga may help reduce stress and blood pressure, improve concentration and sleep and treat conditions such as arthritis and asthma.
