Aerobics Classes Taught by Fitness Center Staff

The Fitness Center Staff will be teaching Aerobics Classes until May 31. For a schedule of the classes offered, visit the Fitness Center or call 567-6628. Such classes offered are:

Functional Fitness — trains your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work or in sports. While using various muscles in the upper and lower body at the same time, functional fitness exercises also emphasize core stability.

Group Exercise — is typically described as exercise performed by a group of individuals led by an instructor. A variety of group exercise formats exist, including (but not limited to) aerobics and dance choreographed to music, BOSU, core conditioning, Pilates, yoga and muscle conditioning. Group exercise offers a variety of benefits you might miss if you choose to work out on your own. Some of the benefits include exposure to a social and fun environment, a safe and effectively designed workout.

Boot Camp — results driven and energetic fitness and fat loss workout program that includes motivation, accountability and dynamic resistance training; all designed to get you the body that you want in a safe, fun and non-intimidating atmosphere.

Cycle Fitness — creates a work out that is deeply engaging and energizing on an indoor bicycle. This program is physically efficient and challenging, mentally uplifting, and most importantly, fun.

Kettlebells — A kettlebell is a solid metal heavy ball with an offset handle just large enough to place your hand through and is one of the most effective versatile pieces of equipment you can use during a workout. Kettlebell training has plenty of benefits — namely strength gains, performance increases and fat loss. When used correctly a kettlebell improves your joint stability as well as the joints mobility.
