  Les Mills (Ages 12 & up)

Experience new levels of fitness!  Our instructors teach Les Mills classes with a SMART START approach in order to guarantee that your first steps to fitness are not your last.  Based on scientific research, SMART START is a beginners' plan for fitness that follows three secrets to success:

START SLOW | Don't push your body too soon.  It's okay to stop working out when you've had enough.

BUILD GRADUALLY | Aim towards completing full workouts as your fitness builds.

MIX IT UP | Mix strength, cardio, and flexibility training options and learn what workouts consistently motivate you to get moving.

Instructors will give appropriate options in class to adjust the workout to your current fitness level.  As you follow the 6-week SMART START plan, build up from four or five tracks to a full class and start slowly with one or two classes per week.


A high-energy martial arts-inspired workout that is totally non-contact. Tone your body, develop coordination, speed, and agility, burn calories and fuel cardio fitness as you punch and kick your way to superior fitness and strength.  Release stress, have a blast, and feel like a champ. 


For anyone and everyone!
