Class Descriptions 

TRX/Kettlebell is an intense and effective workout which combines suspension training (TRX) with kettlebells to build strength and cardio endurance, with an emphasis on the lower body.

Flow Yoga is a combination of accessible postures connected through breath and fluid movement, increasing stamina, strength and flexibility, and reducing stress.

SpINTENSE is a hard-hitting, non-stop ride - never the same playlist twice.

Bodyweight Workout/ExPress Abs builds muscle endurance and a toned physique using the weight of your own body.  Learn some effective workout techniques that you can replicate at home.

Full Body Boot Camp includes short but intense cardio intervals, full-body strength work and a little extra ab work.  You’ll slim down your entire body and feel amazing.

Metabolic Circuit Training burns calories not only during exercise, but up to 12-24 hours afterward! Increase your energy consumption post-exercise, leading to a higher resting metabolic rate.

Rise and Shine Indoor Cycling gets your body moving and warmed up early in the morning!
