Advanced Circuit

An advanced high intensity class taught in a circuit style involving challenging strength movements with weighted bars and heavy dumbbells. Intervals are performed under heavy load and may be interspersed with bodyweight challenges, cardio, Plyometrics, and functional movements. Advanced Circuit will challenge you and help you reach a new level of fitness.


Ballet Conditioning

A low-impact strength and toning workout using traditional ballet barre exercises such as bending the knees (Plié) stretching and pointing through the legs and feet (Tendu), and moving the arms through ballet positions (Port de bras). The purpose of Ballet Conditioning:

  1. Create long, lean muscles, targeting the smaller muscles groups that are typically underused or overlooked
  2. Enhance overall flexibility and balance in the body
  3. Heighten awareness and maintain proper spinal alignment
  4. Strengthen the core muscles for better support and stabilization 

Ballet conditioning is a unique workout for any level of fitness. This is not a dance class; Ballet Conditioning is designed specifically for fitness, taking elements of a traditional ballet class and adapting them for a standard exercise class.


Barre Fitness

This workout combines functional strength, ballet inspired exercises, Pilates, and yoga. This class focuses on alignment and optimal posture while enhancing body awareness, coordination, balance, and overall strength and toning. Bands, balls, and light hand weights may be included in this workout to provide additional resistance and challenge.


Boomer Boot Camp

Not ready for SilverSneakers® yet? Are regular boot camp classes too intense for you? We have an alternative low impact fitness class designed to challenge the body to maintain independence and function. Ideal for ages 50+ or for those interested in a more moderate workout.

You should be strong, flexible, and more coordinated with every class.
