GROUP CLASSES

No Sweat

No Sweat is a great way to recharge your battery in the middle of the day and give you the energy to get through the afternoon. The phrase "no sweat" means this is not a cardio workout. Instead, it utilizes stability balls, step benches, hand weights, resistance bands and mats. Participants will perform a variety of exercises to increase strength. This class is designed to accommodate from beginner to advanced individuals. All equipment will be provided.

Indoor Cycling

Also referred to as "Spinning," Indoor Cycling is a fitness class that is performed on stationary bikes to music. Our instructors will guide you through an entire cycle adventure that will challenge the fittest participants, but is very modifiable for those that are just starting their fitness journey. Classes will climb, jump, sprint and have a nice flat ride through the countryside. All of our instructors are both very passionate about fitness and will try to motivate you to work at your peak performance, all the while cueing form and intensity. You'll have a great ride time after time and have tons of fun!

Due to a limited number of bikes, it is recommended that you reserve a bike by calling the front desk at ext. 3528. RESERVATIONS CAN BE MADE AFTER NOON ON THE DAY BEFORE THE CLASS MEETS (for example, Mon. at noon for Tuesday class). Please bring a towel, bottle of water and arrive 5 minutes before class!
