Fitness Classes


This urban-flavored, dance fitness class is tons of fun and easy to do at your own level (there’s always level 1 and 2 options). By adding style, nuance, and bigger movements once your muscle memory kicks in, you’ll feel the intensity kick up 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 are always there to love too. You don’t need to know how to dance, this is literally for anyone and everyone – promise! I cue verbally and visually; you just follow along. Come jam with us and be amazed at how fast a fitness class can fly by!

HIIT & Stretch

High intensity interval training, core strength, and deep stretching, all in one. IMG_8183HIIT burns more fat in less time while preserving your lean muscle, and it’s not just for elite athletes. Anyone* can add intense (for them) intervals and the benefits are tremendous. We’ll spend about 20 minutes doing intervals (between 10-90 seconds of work) interspersed with light movement or rest, allowing you to reach a higher intensity than normal, which spikes metabolism. This means more fat used for energy, more muscle preservation, and a longer after-burn (up to 2 days of higher metabolism if you work hard, not to mention adaptations leaving you with a permanently higher metabolism as you continue). HIIT has even been shown to improve symptoms of Diabetes, Parkinson’s, and COPD!

*If you haven’t exercised in a long time, 1-2 weeks of consistent movement (i.e. walking, yoga, cycling, swimming, dancing, etc) is recommended first.
