Tips for Beginners
8 Min Abs: Work on your abs for 8 minutes.. Enough Said.
Full Body Burn: Combination of body weight exercises, plyometrics, and weight training. Aerobic and anaerobic effect.
Indoor Cycling: Is a great workout that can be tailored to all levels: for our seasoned athletes, fitness fanatics, and exercise beginners. A typical class involves an instructor who leads the participants through routines that are designed to simulate terrain and situations similar to riding a bike outdoors, all at a self-directed pace. Movements and positions include hill climbs, sprints, and interval training. Instructors use music, motivation, visualization, and coaching to lead students through a ride that best suits their fitness level and goals. More than just a great workout – indoor cycling creates a sense of community, shared purpose, and lasting lifestyle change. Of course if you're looking for a calorie-burning, energizing, fun workout, we can help with that too.
Yoga: Yoga can be as much or as little as you want it to be. For soe it is purely a physical pursuit, keeping the body toned, strong and flexible. For others, yoga becomes more of a mindset and a way of living. Yoga, like life is about finding bliss and serenity in the moment. So come in, relax, and learn to 'be' your Yoga.
Zumba: Is a high energy Latin inspired dance fitness program that involves dance and aerobic elements.
