Athletics

Let fitness flex around your life.

Fitting a workout into your day is easier when your fitness options blend effortlessly into your lifestyle. Step out of a breakfast meeting and onto your choice of cardio machines.

Find a range of fitness options for a change of pace every day.

Classes

Prefer to work out with others to gain a little extra motivation? Join one of our focused group exercise classes:

Yoga All Levels
This class is focused on helping students cultivate an even ratio of mobility, strength and postural stability. We will use targeted muscle activation, resistive stretching and isometric lengthening as well as restorative and classical yoga postures to assist practitioners in relieving chronic tension and muscular imbalance. Special attention will be paid to how we apply effort in order to maximize benefits while also maintaining safety. This class is appropriate for all levels of practitioners

Gentle Yoga
This class is primarily focused on breath-work, meditation, alignment, strength building and relaxation. Classes are slow flow in approach (i.e. linking poses together in a way that brings calmness to the nervous system and opens and strengthens the body while maintaining a rhythmic and restorative breathing pattern). This class is adapted to all levels of experience. Each class incorporates aspects of standing poses, balancing practice, and seated postures that will stretch and strengthen all parts of your body. Focus is on safe and effective alignment to minimize injury and allow students to explore their individual potential.

Spinning
This is a 45 minute, high energy indoor cycling class. It begins with a five minute warm-up, followed by periods of high and low intensity cycling with varying resistance and ends with a cool-down and stretching. This is a challenging, interval type training (HIIT) appropriate for all fitness levels. This class is a great calorie/fat burner and will improve cardiorespiratory fitness.

Strength and Mobility
This group exercise format uses the format of a contemporary yoga class but integrates exercises from many different modalities including body weight exercise, functional strength and martial arts as well as agility training. The primary focus is to strengthen all muscle groups of the body with particular attention paid to stabilization and maintaining the functionality of the joints. A short mobility section is added to the end of the class to support optimal functioning of the entire body.

Band Camp
This class is a total body, HIIT, (High Intensity Interval Training) class that will help improve your cardiovascular fitness, increase your strength and endurance, and help you tighten and tone all those problem areas using nothing but your body weight and resistance bands. Expect a class full of creative exercises to challenge your body in a variety of new ways.
