Class Descriptions

Senior Fit

Because the aging process affects all the systems of the body, effective training strategies have been developed to improve flexibility, endurance, strength and optimal function in older-adult clients. This class consists of strength training using hand held free weights, cardiovascular training at both high and low intensity options, core stability and balance training using both standing and mat work options, and flexibility training.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga in America. It is the branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. Hatha yoga uses bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. There are nearly 200 hatha yoga postures, with hundreds of variations, which work to make the spine supple and to promote circulation in all the organs, glands, and tissues. Hatha yoga postures also stretch and align the body, promoting balance and flexibility.


Tabata is a type of high intensity interval training. This training protocol involves performing a particular exercise (or exercises) at high intensity for 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest. This is repeated 8 times for a total training time of 4 minutes per exercise.


HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time.
