Group Fitness Class Descriptions
Our regular specialty classes will be on a three-week rotating schedule to offer a variety of class types for everyone. These classes will always follow the daily warm-up.
*Group fitness classes offered at Adult Fitness are taught for any fitness level through the use of modifications.
- HIT the Circuit – This class follows a circuit format while using interval timing for the exercises performed. The goal is to complete the exercises at a self-directed high-intensity pace. You can expect to “hit” all major muscle groups as well as have the opportunity to get your heart rate up!
- L.O.W. (Legs Only Workout) – This class is primarily focused on the lower body. The class varies in exercises as well as sets and reps. There will also be a diverse range of equipment used to enhance your knowledge of strength training for your legs. In addition, we do not have a set format to give you something different in each class.
- Arms Race – This class is primarily focused on the upper body. The class varies in exercises as well as sets and reps. There will also be a diverse range of equipment used to enhance your knowledge of strength training for your upper body. In addition, we do not have a set format in order to give you something different in each class.
- Fit-Ball/Chair Strength – This class is aimed at improving core strength and balance as the fit-ball (also known as stability ball or Swiss ball) provides an added challenge to traditional movements. Other equipment is used in addition to providing a well-rounded, total body class. Note: There is an option for the student teacher to make this a chair class. This would be a similar format, using various equipment, but instead of the fit-ball being the primary focus of the class, it would be a chair.
- Stretch and Balance – This is a 2-part class that will allow you to relax and work on increasing your range of motion through gentle stretching. You will also be given the opportunity to practice balance exercises with the goal of maintaining and/or improving independence in daily tasks.
- Hi-Lo – This cardiovascular class involves floor-based movements such as the grapevine, v-step, and more. There will be a mix of high-impact moves for maintaining bone mineral density and low-impact moves that are easier on the joints. This class also offers fun upbeat music to keep you moving.
- Water Aerobics – Offered on Thursday evenings with an instructor who provides both cardio and strength exercises in the water. It is desirable for those individuals who wish to stay active but need lower-impact exercises. Plus, it’s an opportunity to take a class in a fun and social environment.
- Yoga – This class will guide you through 45 minutes of gentle yoga. Focused on mindfulness and connectivity with your body and breath, no former yoga experience is necessary. The class is aimed at increasing flexibility and mobility without using traditional yoga flows. Props such as blocks, straps, and mats are provided as necessary.
- Zumba – This dance-inspired class features high-energy music and moves to get your heart rate up in a unique way. You don’t have to know how to dance, just move your body, follow along, and enjoy!
- Tai Chi – This class is designed around gentle continuous movement. Tai Chi is known for its many benefits including lowering stress and tension and improving focus, balance, and relaxation. There is no former Tai Chi experience needed for this class.
- Pickleball – There is no level of experience needed to join our pickleball hours. You can drop in and play for as long as you want during the specified times. Our current hours for pickleball are Monday 6:30 – 8:00 a.m., Wednesday 5:30 – 7:00 p.m., and Saturday 8:00 – 10:00 a.m.
