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.
Monday/Tuesday classes will include:
- HIT the Circuit – This is a combination circuit and high-intensity interval training class that can be taught in the manner of workout stations or segments. You can pick your workout intensity and with a short time at each exercise it makes the class go by quick!
- Hi-Low Aerobics – This cardiovascular class involves floor based movements such as the grapevine, v-step, and more. This is a great class to pick your own intensity, with 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!
- Stretch and Balance – This is a relaxed style of class that uses equipment such as the Bosu Ball, disks, thera-bands, and more to improve flexibility and balance while helping to maintain independence in daily tasks.
Wednesday/Thursday classes will include:
- Arms Race – With a focus on the major muscle groups of the upper body this class will help you to develop strength and improve function. Always presented with modifications it is a great way to target muscle groups you normally wouldn’t.
- L.O.W. (Legs Only Workout) – This workout is meant to help you concentrate on the muscles that keep you upright and moving. It is meant to help you build strength and confidence during daily activities through a repetition of movements.
- Fit-Ball – Also referred to as a stability ball or Swiss ball, this class focuses on improving muscular strength. Other equipment is used in addition to providing a well-rounded, full body workout. Fit-ball is great for balance, strength, and giving the body a challenge, separate from a traditional workout.
Other Group Fitness Classes:
- Water Aerobics is offered on Thursday evenings in the pool area by an instructor who provides both
cardio and strength workout. Water aerobics provides resistance training with little impact, making it
desirable for those individuals who wish to stay active but need lower impact exercises, but don’t want to
sacrifice on fitness.
- Yoga class will guide you through 45 minutes of a gentle yoga class. It is less intense with gentle
stretching, to increase flexibility, and mobility, and also helps to relax and de-stress. Props such as
blocks, straps, and mats can be used to aid in the class and are provided. Gentle yoga is a great
beginning yoga class to help get rid of stiff joints and release tension held in by the body.
- Zumba features exotic rhythms set to high-energy Latin, international and top 40 beats. Before
participants know it, they’re getting fit and their energy levels are soaring! There’s no other fitness class
like a Zumba. It’s easy to do, effective and totally exhilarating. You don’t have to know how to dance,
just move your body, follow along, and enjoy!
