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.


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!

Mondays & Fridays

5:15am - 6:00am




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. 

Mondays & Wednesdays

9:00am - 10:00am


Our Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a fun, lighthearted workout or "work-in" designed to connect your breath with movement. Come participate for the balance, strength, flexibility, and inner peace this practice cultivates.

Practice wraps up with the beautiful stillness and relaxation of savasana.

Aquajogging involves wearing a flotation device around your middle and then moving your arms and legs in a running motion in the deep end of the pool. Your feet should not touch the floor of the pool and you should make slow forward progress. It is probably the most common form of cross training among elite athletes.

This aquatic class is beneficial to individuals who struggle with the daily aches and pains of arthritis.  Exercises help range of motion, keep joints flexible, and maintain or rebuild muscle strength.

Deep Water Aerobics

This water exercise class uses flotation belts designed for both swimmers and non-swimmers to improve strength and cardiovascular fitness giving a whole-body workout.  The flotation belt allows muscles and joints to move freely and comfortably in the water.  The water provides resistance and makes muscles work harder without the pounding, straining or jarring.
