Below you will find the fitness class descriptions for our current group fitness classes.

Due to COVID-19 physical distancing measures, there will be a limit to the number of participants in each class. Participants must register for the class in advance.

AquaFit

Leave the running shoes behind and join the growing numbers in the pool for a terrific cardiovascular workout that provides less stress on the joints while firming muscles thanks to water's natural resistance (deep and shallow water classes offered). AquaFit is suitable for participants of all ages. No swimming skills required.

*A limited number of weights are available for this class. Participants are asked to bring their own mat and are encouraged to bring their own weights.

Cardio Kickboxing

By incorporating punches and kicks in combinations, this workout engages all muscles – especially the powerhouse (core and back), for a great cardio workout.

DalSpin

Join us for an exhilarating 45-minute ride, varied with drills including hills, sprints, and tempo rides. Participants can work at their own pace by adjusting the spin bike’s resistance and intensity level. Class begins with a warmup and ends with a cooldown that includes standing stretch. An overview of how to adjust seats, handlebars and resistance will be given at the beginning, and postural cueing is offered throughout class.

We always finish class in a final resting pose (savasana), to finish class feeling refreshed and rested.
