Group Fitness Class Descriptions

Accumulator starts with one exercise, adds another, and another, and soon you have a 45 minute workout that leaves you exhausted and fired up at the same time.  The class is different every week and will get harder as the semester progresses.

Barre Blast combines yoga, Pilates, core conditioning, interval strength training, and brief cardio segments for a total body workout!  Use the ballet barre, resistance bands, your own body weight, etc., as resistance for functional strength and endurance training and dynamic movements designed to work each muscle group to exhaustion.

Gentle Yoga focuses on a slower paced restorative asana (posture) practice with an emphasis on breathing, relaxation, and gentle stretching.  All levels of practice are welcome.

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is cardio training that involves cycles of high intensity bursts and low to moderate intensity recovery.  The ratio is usually 2:1, i.e. 20 seconds of jump squats and 10 seconds of jogging in place.  Class may include intervals of strength training and tabata formats.

Hip Hop Cardio is a super high energy dance workout with easy-to-learn dance moves to all your favorite Hip Hop songs.  No dance experience necessary.

Latin Dance is an exhilarating workout that uses Latin music, intervals of fast and slow rhythms with easy-to-learn dance moves to burn some serious calories.  No dance experience necessary.

Total Body Conditioning combines cardio and resistance training all in one class!  This class will raise your heart rate during the cardio portions and challenge your muscular strength and endurance during the resistance training portions.  Use NEW Body Sport Pump Weight Bars, dumbbells, body bars, resistance bands, your own body weight, plyometric exercises, etc., for a balanced workout!

Total Body Strength uses NEW Body Sport Pump Weight Bars and other equipment for a resistance training workout targeting all major muscle groups.  This class will help improve muscular strength and endurance by using Body Sport Pump Weight Bars, dumbbells, body bars, resistance bands, your own body weight, plyometric exercises, etc., for a balanced workout.  Class size may be limited due to equipment availability.

Vinyasa Yoga focuses on patience, grace, strength, balance, and flexibility through a dynamic, flowing practice.  This class uses breath-synchronized movement to create internal heat in the body while practicing asanas (postures).  All levels of practice are welcome, modifications will be given to increase or decrease the intensity of postures.

Yoga for Strength is a 45 minute vinyasa style class.  Flowing posture sequences will build strength and flexibility in the body and de-stress the mind.  All levels of practice are welcome, modifications will be given to increase or decrease the intensity of postures.
