Fitness Class Description

ABS | MILITARY ONLY: This class will offer the ultimate abdominal workout. The instructor will lead individuals through 30 straight minutes of various abdominal exercises to target each and EVERY muscle group. The workout will include interchanging traditional and non-traditional exercises and will challenge every individual's fitness level, whether novice or advanced. Each individual can work at their own level by performing modifications of various exercises.  This workout is meant to be challenging, but ultimately rewarding as individuals' abdominal strength and endurance levels improve.

BOOT CAMP |A mix of Cardio and Strength Training. Will include some cardio, high intensity moves and a full body workout using weights, balls, bands, etc. Come in and burn some calories!

CYCLE/SPIN | Coaching and instruction guides students through a low-impact cardio work out on a special type of stationary cycle. Each rider can work at their own level to meet their fitness goals and have fun. Routines are choreographed to music to motivate and focus students on a fun, flexible cardio work out. Class begins with a warm-up and upper body stretching on the bike. The core of the session is a cycle profile which simulates flat roads and hills to achieve your fitness objectives. Because of the format and flexibility of indoor cycling, participants with all levels of fitness will meet their goals. No one is ever left behind – it’s not about competition. Class ends with a specific cool down and stretching both on and off the bike. New students: Please arrive 15 minutes early for bike setup instruction. Bring a water bottle and towel. Wear comfortable shorts with long legs. Stiff-soled shoes work best (biking or cross trainers), but any shoe will suffice.
