Class Descriptions

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

 

Crunch Time: Interval type class combining energizing cardio moves with core strengthening exercises (crunch time). This workout will raise your heart rate and increase your calorie burning potential while warming you up for the crunch time interval.

 

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training): 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 core training, intervals of strength training and other HIIT formats or tabata.

Total Body Conditioning (TBC): Cardio and resistance training all in one class!  This class will raise your heart rate during the cardio portion and challenge your muscular strength and endurance during the resistance training portion.  Use bumbbells, body bars, bands, your own body weight, plyometric exercises, etc. for a balanced workout!
