Group Fitness Class Descriptions

All of our classes are open to different fitness levels,  from those who are new to group fitness programs and/or exercising to those who are active in group fitness programs or another type of exercise program. Fitness Instructors will provide optional modifications, to make the workout more or less challenging. It is the responsibility of patrons to choose the modifications that will give them the safest, most effective workout.
