Classes

Our facility is located at 7,620′ elevation.  Most of these classes are challenging high-altitude workouts – ensure you are medically able to participate.  Then get after it!

Barre with Michelle

Barre is designed with slow, controlled movement in mind. “Barre” refers to the ballet bar, and we use it occasionally for balance and proper alignment, but most of the class is on a mat with weights. Meant to strengthen the core to the very edge, you will shake and be sore, but that only means it’s working. All levels can participate, yet all will be pushed to their limits while working balance, strength and flexibility.

Bootcamp with Julie

Boot camp is a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) style class.  In this class we incorporate strength and cardio.  Every class is unique and different than the week before, always challenging the participants to change up their routine and transform their body.  This class will engage all ages and abilities and can be fit into any fitness program.  We use a variety of equipment and even move around to different classroom spaces depending on the design of that particular workout.

Candlelight Yoga with Patricia

This one-hour, all-levels, Hatha class is conducted in a dark room with candlelight. It is designed to help students “shake off the day” and to center into the self while practicing short sequences of various yoga postures (asanas). Each yoga class begins with a brief warm up followed by standing and balancing poses to warm up the body. The rest of the class involves holding seated and reclined postures a little longer to improve flexibility. The class concludes with Shavasana (corpse pose) surrounded by soft music, candlelight and other offerings to further the relaxation experience.

Cardio Bag with Ellen & David

Cardio Bag, also known as fitness boxing, is a high energy, high-intensity full-body workout in our classroom outfitted with Century Wavemaster XL heavy bags.  In addition to lots and lots of Krav Maga-based punching, we integrate work with bands, medicine balls, kettlebells and bodyweight exercises to give you a great whole-body workout that will increase your physical and mental strength and stamina.  Lots of fast-twitch muscle work and stress reduction as you pound away your frustrations.  Harvard Medical School has documented the health benefits of fitness boxing, especially for seniors:  strength, aerobic capacity, cognitive function and improved balance.

Cycling with Trisha and Walt

Cycling in our group exercise room on our Schwinn and Lemond spinners will take your heart rate through a series of challenges and recovery periods in sync with motivational music.   If you ask nicely, Trisha may even put on the disco lights for you!

Functional Fitness with Julie & David

Functional Fitness is a great full-body workout that trains your body the way you use it in life.  Almost no athletic movement isolates muscles; our Functional Fitness classes recognize that and run you through complex exercises that engage complementary muscle groups so they get stronger together.  We also work on flexibility and mobility, two other critical components to functional capability.  These classes make use of the functional equipment in our “Rack Room” and, weather permitting, the outdoors:  TRX, medicine balls, kettlebells, sleds, sandbags, battle ropes, etc.  Never boring, constantly challenging, always satisfying.  All exercises can be modified to fit your fitness level.

Functional Fitness / Cardio Bag with David

Combine the best of both above classes with this extremely challenging class that includes core and complex resistance training followed by super high intensity cardio work on the bags  and cardio machines.  Not suitable for beginners, but when you’re ready, this class will take you to performance levels you thought impossible.

Hatha Yoga with Stacy

A nurturing, fun, and non-competitive class that will help improve balance, strength & flexibility. Yoga poses will be linked together and done slowly, with attention to breath. Class builds slowly, with lots of stretching, and builds to more complex poses. Breathing techniques, yoga philosophy, meditation, and stress management will be touched on. Class is suitable for those with some yoga experience, as well as beginners, as a variety of options for each pose will be offered. Students should be able to kneel on the floor and get up and down from a sitting or kneeling position without support.

Pilates with Ravit

Build that core!  Find your powerhouse and create stability and support in your body.  This is an intermediate level class, although beginners and advanced students are welcome. From mat work to Swiss ball, pilates ring-weights, Therabands and the ballet bar – no class is ever the same.  Come be challenged: move slowly and intentionally and get strong!
