A fun exercise chair based class designed to increase strength, range of motion, balance, coordination, functional capabilities, physical fitness and sense of well-being. Classes are appropriate for individuals who are fit and active, as well as those who are sedentary, intimidated, entering a post rehabilitation program or unfamiliar with exercise.
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. REFIT® classes are one-size-fits-all. We believe in the power of diversity and multi-generational relationships within one shared fitness experience. Modifications are easy to implement to increase or decrease the workout intensity, and the follow-the-leader instruction style ensures that all participants feel successful in their workout experience.
Our Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a fun, lighthearted workout or "work-in" designed to connect your breath with movement. Teens to seniors participate in our yoga community for the balance, strength, flexibility, and inner peace this practice cultivates. Class begins with seated breath work moving into connecting that breath to movement through traditional asanas (poses) such as sun salutations, warriors, triangle and more. Practice wraps up with the beautiful stillness and relaxation of savasana. Bring a mat, block and strap if you have one. Loaner blocks and mats are available first come, first serve.
This class alternates high intensity intervals with brief periods of recovery. Typically a circuit training class with several stations - each station incorporating 30 to 60 or more seconds of "all out effort" followed 10-20 seconds of recovery before the next rep.

Future sessions will consist of other types of music, such as, oldies, country, jazz, etc. Requests for music are accepted. This class is low-impact but will raise your heartbeat and tone and target your mid-section, hips, thighs and arms. Speed of movement in the pool will be modified for the natural resistance provided by the water and of your movements. Instructor will teach from the deck for better visual instruction.
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.
Using the support and resistance of the water, this class helps to improve the cardiovascular system, oxygen and blood circulation and flexibility and muscle tone.
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.
