Class Descriptions

 

BODYPUMP: This is the original barbell workout that strengthens

your entire body and burns 500 calories! The 60-minute class challenges

all major muscle groups by using the best weight room exercises like squats,

presses, lifts and curls. Great music, awesome instructors and your choice of

weight inspire you to get the results you came for.

 

BODYSTEP: This is not your typical step aerobics class! This is an energizing step workout that makes you feel liberated and alive. The class is ideal for people who love to get their groove on and have a little fun as they work out. Cardiovascular segments push fat burning systems into high gear followed by muscle conditioning segments that shape and tone your body.


BODYSTEP Athletic: This is the new interval training inspired variation of BODYSTEP that is ideal for those looking for more intense, but less complex, functional step training that unleashes power and athleticism. This class is particularly appealing to males.

 

Full Body Sculpting: These classes use a wide range of exercises incorporating dumbbells, stability balls, benches and mat work to tone and strengthen your body. Many balance challenges will be offered.

 

Gentle Yoga: Give yourself an hour (or more) a week to practice mindful breath and movement in a safe and open environment. If you have an injury, are new to yoga, or are looking for a time to slow down and soothe your mind and body; this class will work well for you. The pace is slow and relaxed, the poses set up in a way to create calm, expansion, and ease. No experience is necessary, beginners welcome. Mats, blocks, straps, and blankets are provided.

 

Light Aerobics and Sculpt: These fun, non-competitive classes are targeted towards those who are looking for a slower paced format. They all combine the three key components of fitness: cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, and flexibility. Each class can be modified for any fitness level. We provide all the mats and equipment you may need. Work-out with your friends—the socializing is great and also an important component of overall health and well-being!


TaBOOTa: This is not your typical Boot Camp class! We incorporate Tabata intervals to improve your aerobic and anaerobic capacity, as well as your muscular strength and endurance. A single Tabata sequence consists of 20 seconds maximum intensity exercise, followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated without pause 8 times for a total of four minutes. The result is you work harder and burn more calories than you would in the same amount of time during steady-state training. As a bonus, the fat-burning continues long after the work-out ends!  We also include speed and agility drills, dynamic strength and power drills, and core stability exercises.The classes are open to all levels.

U-JAM Fitness: We are the facility responsible for bringing this great class to New England (we held the training here last year). Be among the first to experience the class that has taken the West Coast by storm! It unites world beats with urban flavor and takes you around the world from Hip-Hop to Bollywood. The intense cardiovascular workout features easy to learn dance steps that make you sweat, tone your body, and leave you craving for more. U-JAM Fitness is Universal, Unique, and eUphoric! So lace up your high-tops and let the music drive you!

Zumba®: This is the Latin-inspired dance-fitness program that blends red-hot international music and contagious steps to form a "fitness party" that is downright addictive. You do not need to be a dancer to succeed in this class. Relax, lose your inhibitions and dance like no one is watching!

Zumba® Toning: This class takes the original Zumba® dance-fitness class to the next level, utilizing an innovative muscle training protocol and the addition of light weight dumbbells. You will learn how to use the weights to enhance rhythm and tone all the target zones. Zumba Toning is fun, different, challenging and effective, and provides a new avenue to weighted activity. Not to worry, prior dance experience is not required.
