Want to release some stress? Lose some inches? Tone your arms, hips, waist and glutes? If you do, this is the class for you. This non-contact cardio kickboxing class combines dance, kickboxing and kung fu. Imagine J-Lo meets Jackie Chan. This class is similar to Tae Bo, yet provides a much groovier, higher impact fitness program. Learn various kicks, strikes and combinations (non-contact) while burning over 500 calories! *Shoes (that are dry) are highly recommended*
Strong and Lean
Strong and Lean is an exciting class that is specifically programmed to increase your strength and cardiovascular fitness. We start with strength-specific programming, progressively training fundamental movements: Squat, Deadlift, Pressing and Pulling in various angles. We finish with higher intensity sets of a variety of movements and cool fitness implements including kettlebells, TRX, and medicine balls to to build your aerobic work capacity. It can be tough, but everyone can do this, and the results will be true strength, and a lean, highly functional, athletic body. Sneakers recommended.
HiiT class will be sweaty, challenging, exciting and FUN. This class will start with a dynamic warm up, followed by an ideal mix of strength and conditioning moves interspersed with cardio bursts (aerobic and anaerobic). Each burst will target different parts of the body, and because of the Tabata timing, it makes it easier to push yourself as hard as possible for 20 seconds.
