Group Exercise Class Descriptions

Midday Mindfullness

Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, sensations, and surrounding environment. Tune into your senses each Monday as we rotate between activities of meditation, breath awareness, body scanning, journaling and more.

TRX

Utilize suspension straps to push, pull, and lift your own body weight to develop strength, balance, flexibly, and core stability simultaneously. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.

 

Cardio Kickboxing Intervals

Cardio kickboxing and bodyweight cardio moves come together for an interval workout that is great for burning fat and improving cardiovascular endurance.
