Wellness Classes:

Aqua Fit

This cardiovascular class is easy on your joints while providing all benefits of an aerobics class. The first half of the class is focused on cardio while the second half incorporates water strength exercises by utilizing resistance equipment.


The hatha yoga class emphasizes a deep internal focus, with a relaxed state utilizing the breath and energy flow.  Fundamental foundational movements emphasize lengthening and strengthening the body.


Zumba classes feature exotic rhythms set to high-energy Latin and International beats. This effective and exhilarating class often builds a deep-rooted community among those that regularly participate.

Resistance & Weight Training:

Body Balance

A gentle approach to fitness, this class is devoted to defining muscles, improving functional strength and increasing flexibility. Stability balls and stretching bands assist in restoring balance and muscle tone.


Functional Integrated Training (FIT) is designed to have your upper and lower body muscles work collaboratively and emphasizes core stability. Properly applied, FIT can make everyday activities easier, reduce risk of injury and improve quality of life.


High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) combines short duration high-intensity exercise intervals intermingled with periods of lower intensity intervals of active recovery.  

Total Body

Overall body strength is emphasized as you combine aerobic, strength training and stretching to challenge your muscles using hand-held weights and bands.
