Class Descriptions

Boot Camp

A fitness boot camp is type of group exercise class that mixes traditional calisthenic and body weight exercises with interval training and strength training. Boot Camp training often commences with dynamic stretching and running, followed by a wide variety of interval training, including lifting weights/objects, pulling rubber TRX straps, pushups/situps, plyometrics, and various types of intense explosive routines.

Freestyle Core Training

Your core provides strength and stability for the rest of your body, which is why it is important to develop these muscle groups. The core not only consists of the rectus abdominis and transverse abdominis, better known as the abdominal muscles, but it also includes the obliques, lower-back and glutes. A great core workout needs to address each area and from multiple angles to get a toned six-pack and a powerful midsection.
