HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is an interval training technique that can be used for both cardiovascular and strength exercises.

Core Fitness

Cost: $35 for one 7 week time slot, or $6 per class (when space is available).

A strong core is a vital ingredient to a strong body. This class will challenge you front to back while helping to improve your coordination and balance with the use of functional, balance, and body weight exercises. This is a full-body workout with an emphasis on core exercises.

POUND

 PIYO *NEW*

Time: Tuesday - 6:00 PM

Cost: $35 for one 7 week time slot, or $6 per class (when space is available)

PiYo is a total-body fitness system designed to whip you into shape from head to toe. It combines the practices of Pilates and yoga to help you build strength, lose weight, increase flexibility and have a great time doing it. PiYo was designed for people who want the mind-body benefits of a yoga or Pilates workout, but with a higher-energy, higher-sweat class.

While it does blend together these two mind-body exercises, it also adds in components of martial arts and dance for a more intense, kick-booty workout. PiYo also prides itself on using upbeat, mainstream music, rather than traditional zen yoga music, to keep students excited, interested and in the zone during the workout.

Participants are encouraged to please bring a yoga mat.
