Boot Camp

Get in shape “boot camp” style! Experience high-intensity, full-body workouts that target the major muscle groups of the upper & lower body, specifically designed to “make it rain” sweat! From circuit-style routines that jump-start cardio fitness, to creative muscle-toning exercises using dumbbells, exercise bands, or even the participant’s body weight, each class brings its own unique challenges. No two classes are the same! Students will work to improve cardiovascular stamina, core strength, & flexibility.

Mondays & Fridays

Pilates Fusion is a Pilates based workout focusing on core strength, flexibility and total body conditioning fused with a perfect mix of cardio and body sculpting exercises designed to make you sweat!




A full-body cardio jam session combining light resistance with constant simulated drumming! The workout fuses cardio, Pilates, isometric movements, plyometrics, and isometric poses into a 60-minute class.




This class combines several elements of fitness into one power-packed hour. While the focus is structured around Cardio Dance movements - toning, flexibility, strength, and stretching are also incorporated into the REFIT workout. Workouts are easy to follow that will challenge fitness enthusiasts and welcome beginners. Our vision is to create a fitness experience that changes people from the inside out, and this vision is accomplished by focusing on the heart as a muscle AND a soul. The BODY+MIND+SPIRIT emphasis is what creates a powerful, uplifting fitness experience that lasts well beyond the workout.
