Class Descriptions

We offer many group fitness classes for our members. Each class and instructor will be somewhat different in his or her style, experience and overall teaching technique. Make sure you try out a variety of classes with a variety of instructors to find what you like best. Our classes are not leveled as beginner, intermediate or advanced, because most workouts can be modified for different fitness levels. Please keep in mind though, not all classes will be appropriate for every person, but we believe we have something for just about everyone.
