Fitness Classes


This urban-flavored, dance fitness class is tons of fun and easy to do at your own level (options given to tone it down or kick it up). By adding style, nuance, and bigger movements once the basic movements become easier, you’ll feel the intensity and the calories take off. The choreography is fun, easy to follow, and set to heart-pumping world beats like Hip-Hop, Reggaeton, Afro Beats, K-Pop, and much more. New routines rotate in over time, but old favorites stick around too. No need to know how to dance, this is for everyone! I cue verbally and visually; you just follow along. Come jam with us and you’ll be amazed how fast an hour can fly by! Please bring water and towel

HIIT & Stretch

IMG_8183

High intensity interval training, core strength, & deep stretching, all in one. With a combo of strength and cardio, using body weight and resistance bands, we spend 20-30 minutes doing intervals after warming up, followed by core work for about 10 minutes and finally a good 10-20 of deep stretching to reduce aches, recover better, and just feel awesome. The HIIT portion includes 10-90 second intervals interspersed with active rest or full rest, allowing you to reach higher intensities than steady state cardio, which really gets your metabolic engine burning! This means more fat burn & more muscle preservation. This class is for most all levels since I can always help you make a movement right for you. If you haven’t exercised in a long time, building up a bit of endurance and strength with any regular movement for a few weeks first will help. If you’re unsure or would like help building up to this class, contact me to discuss whether it’s right for you! Please a yoga mat, water, and towel.

Mobile, Strong, Lean

This 1-hour class covers 3 fundamentals of fitness, all impact-free: mobility/range of motion, strength at varying ranges of motion, and metabolic conditioning – getting the heart rate up! We’ll begin with mobility exercises like dynamic and active stretching to open up the joints, reduce aches and pains, and strengthen at our end ranges of motion, helping flexibility and mobility even more. We’ll move on to a weight training circuit covering upper and lower body and core, and end with a quick heart-rate pumping, impact-free circuit and final a cool down of passive, deep stretching
