Class Formats

Paddleboard Fitness

Paddleboard Fitness brings a variety of workouts including core strength, high intensity interval training, and yoga to the water! Introducing the element of an unstable surface fires up your intrinsic balance muscles and makes your workout much harder! Paddleboard and PFD (personal floatation device) included in the price of class.  

Women on Weights

This pilot class is geared towards all women to help increase confidence in the gym while learning new strength-training exercises. Proper use of equipment is emphasized, as well as learning why strength training is important for women. A progressive routine takes you through 8 classes of new workouts, leaving you more confident and much stronger! Join us to find out how strength training can kick your fitness and wellness goals into gear!

 "The Women on Weights training was transformative in many aspects. While I saw gains in strength and muscle definition, I also learned the skills and gained the confidence to write my own workouts using free weights and machines. This practice has enabled me to continue training long after the class has ended. The value in this class is much more than the training sessions and the differences that you see during the eight weeks. The long–term benefit is the skills to confidently add weight training to your routine."–Amy Anderson, former participant
