October Group-Ex Updates

Happy Fall! There’s just something about waking up on a beautiful, brisk morning! Feeling the coolness on your face and breathing in the fresh air seems to have a re-energizing effect on us.  We hope this feeling will translate into you springing out of bed in the morning or maintaining energy to come by after school or work to get in a great workout in our group fitness classes!


Tuesday Evening Yoga

For all levels, this vinyasa flow pays careful attention to correct alignment in all of the postures demonstrated.  Whether you are new to the practice or a long time practitioner, it is the perfect combination of challenging moves and deep stretches designed to leave your whole body feeling relaxed and at ease.  The goal is to bring the body, mind and spirit into harmony. What a wonderful way to end your day! Tuesdays at 6:35 PM.


It has been very exciting to see so many who are interested in Tai Chi!  Due to a 26 participant limit within our designated space, we have decided to add another session in order to accommodate all who wish to participate. Beginning Saturday, October 9th, Gary will be leading back-to-back sessions with the 1st at 11:00 AM and the 2nd at 12:00 PM. Please remember to make your reservations through our website.  Call or stop by the front desk for assistance, if needed.



Friday’s 5:35 AM BODYPUMP will move to Thursdays beginning October 7th.  Be sure to follow up your Thursday strength training class with Alicia’s Friday 5:35 AM Cycling class!

Tuesday’s 6:00 PM Functional Fitness

Beginning October 5th, class will start at 5:45 PM instead of 6:00 PM.
