Next Transformation Camp starts Tuesday, January 2 at 9 AM!


GROUP FITNESS CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

Kettle Bell Pump

Burn fat while you sculpt and tone your entire body as you are led through a series of routines for 45-minutes starting with a warm up/game, core segment, Kettlebell workout (varies from HIIT/Tabata training, Circuit training and Super Sets) then ending with a cool down/stretching series.  This class uses a scientifically proven exercise formula known as E.P.O.C. to increase your metabolism up to 12-16 hours after your workout!  Kettle Bell Pump combines both cardio and strength components to build muscular endurance while shedding fat long after the workout ends.  Plus, you will achieve better coordination, increased mobility and improved motor and balance skills.  Kettle Bells are much easier on your joints and with a variety of weights to choose from and modifications demonstrated before starting the routine, this class is open to all fitness levels and those with physical limitations too.  Come see why so many people absolutely LOVE Kettle Bell Pump!

Fitness Bootcamp

Fitness Bootcamp is a combination of strength, conditioning, muscle endurance, flexibility, core, and functional movement patterns. You get EVERYTHING you need all while having fun with a positive team vibe!  These training sessions are designed for people who can’t necessarily commit to training sessions four or more times per week, but still want to get all the same benefits as CrossFit. Because CrossFit is highly dependent on skill acquisition, and skill acquisition takes frequent practice, developing proficiency in CrossFit tends to be easier in those who train 4+ times per week.  Fitness Bootcamp does not use exercises that require a high level of skill such as Olympic weightlifting, as well as the more advanced gymnastics movements.  This means you get to come in and push harder right from day one.  This translates into improvements in strength and conditioning in less time.  This 45-minute class might be indoors or outdoors at times, so weather will never interfere with your workout schedule.  Modifications will be given as needed.

Ab Blast

By focusing on all your abdominal muscles, hips, and low back, this focused 30-minute class will blast your core into shape! Ab Blast is a quick, but targeted workout that will challenge you by functionally strengthening your core and postural muscles while shedding the abdominal fat to reveal your defined abs (i.e. your 6-pack).  You'll leave each class feeling like you have abs of steel!

Glute Camp

In general, most people are anterior-chain dominant (includes your front side muscles like quads, pectoral muscles, core), and lack in the posterior-chain (back side muscles like hamstrings and glutes), so we have a muscle imbalance of anterior to posterior muscles. Nowadays, activities of daily life (ADL) make us quad-dominant (leading to increased knee issues), tight chested, shoulder-rounded, flat-booty-ed, modern day humans. We sit in our cars and drive a lot or sit at our computers all day, and we don’t know how to activate our glutes.  Glute Camp is designed with that in mind.  We will activate and build the muscles of the boot while giving the posterior chain a little more lovin’.  Get ready for a nice rounded firm butt in just 30-minutes!  Modifications will be given as needed.

Totally Tabata

Interval training at its finest.  This "HIIT" High Intensity Interval Training class will vary from bursts of work intervals at :20 sec with :10 rest to other intervals at :45/:15 and more.  Totally Tabata will use a variety of movements ranging from cardio burning to strength building to core blasting.  This 30-minute total body workout will be fast paced with short rest persions, which will increase your E.P.O.C to increase your metabolism p to 12-16 hours after your workout.  HIIT workout are proven effective for fast results!




YOGA CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

BASIC FLOW

This class is designed for beginners to intermediates or anyone looking to explore the basics of the vinyasa flow practice.  Build strength and stamina as you connect the flow of your breath to the flow of dynamic movement.  You can expect a safe and artful approach to sequencing, a mindful pace, purposeful challenges and the opportunity (and guideance) to learn over time and modify for yor own needs.  Basic flow focuses on accessible and foundational yoga poses. This class is perfect for all  levels who want to explore the basics of flow!

YOGA FOR BEGINNERS

For students completely new to yoga. This class works on the alignment in basic poses, breathing techniques and the beginnings of meditation. Expect slow-paced and detailed instruction.


FLEXIBILITY & MOBILITY


A class designed to focus on flexibility training by going through a series of dynamic and static stretches which will help lengthen and tone your muscles.  All movements are geared towards increasing flexibility and mobility, which increases our range of motion.  The use of foam rollers, PVC pipes, and lacrosse balls helps address fascia and muscle related tightness.  This class is great for improving athletic performance  as well as improving functional abilities, such as reaching, bending, or squatting during daily tasks.  Flexibility training allows clients to become more in tune with their body. It is a form of active relaxation that can improve both mental and physical recovery. Stretching is a great way to get you moving in the morning or a way to relax after a long day or tough workout.  Don't be surprised if there's some Pilates and Yoga sequences mixed in!



HATHA/GENTLE

Uses yoga postures (Asanas) to stretch and align the body, strengthens the spine; eases back pain; promoting balance and flexibility. Yoga is distinctly different from other kinds of exercise. It is non competitive and a means to self awareness and self improvement. It generates motion without causing strain and imbalances in the body. When practiced correctly, hatha yoga has no such negative effects on either the inner or outer body.


SCULPT YOGA

 When muscle meets yoga, Sculpt Yoga is born.  Boost metabolism and build lean muscle mass as you move to upbeat tracks.  You;ll combine free weights with CorePower Yoga sequencing and cardio to intensity each yoga pose while mixing in strength-training moves like squats, lunges and bicep curls.  You'll sweat in this class and feel so good doing it!


VINYASA FLOW (Intermediate)

A dynamic active style that links the movement with the breath.  This is a more challenging class than the Basic Flow class which will help your build strength and increase endurance.  You will stretch your muscles, find balance, open your hips, possibly get upside down and end with stillness.  Vinyasa Flow is a popular class enjoyed by all levels. You will leave feeling refreshed and invigorated.  This class is not typically heated.  

YIN

A yoga practice that focuses on the tendon, ligaments and facia tissue.  Yin Yoga postures are more passive postures, mainly on the floor and the majority of postures equal only about three dozen or so, much less than the more popular yang like practices. Yin Yoga is unique in that you are asked to relax in the posture, soften the muscle and move closer to the bone. While yang-like yoga practices are more superficial, Yin offers a much deeper access to the body. It is not uncommon to see postures held for three to five minutes, even 20 minutes at a time. The time spent in these postures is much like time spent in meditation, and I often talk students through the postures as if they were trying to meditate. While in a Yin class you might notice similar postures to a yang class except they are called something else, on a basic level this is to help the students mind shift from yang to yin, active to passive.
