Classes are designed for amateur, intermediate and advanced athletes looking to take their training to the next level.
FULL BODY CIRCUIT
This class includes a dynamic warm-up and movement preparation exercises, light plyometrics, a strength and flexibility exercise circuit and an agility circuit. A perfect class for athletes, those looking to target muscles not regularly worked in a gym setting and anyone seeking full-body strengthening. The experience and fitness level for this class is intermediate.
"Functional strength" will focus on strengthening and improving endurance in the core, lower body, and upper body, while incorporating balance, stability, and cardiovascular training. Exercises will be multi-segmental to simulate everyday movements that can improve everyday function, mobility, posture, and strength. Many of the exercises will involve body weight, kettlebells, medicine balls, and exercise bands. The class will not involve any plyometric (jumping) activities and is safe for those returning to fitness activities after an injury.
