Barre is a ballet inspired workout that will strengthen and stretch the entire body. With a focus on form, barre is an effective, safe, fun workout for all fitness levels. It is very low-impact and safe for the joints and spine. Low impact doesn’t mean low-energy though! Come prepared to move, sweat and laugh! No experience (or tutu) required!
Strength & Conditioning

Cardio & Core- Morning and Evening
These are upbeat, full body workout – upper and lower body, core, weight strengthening and toning. Get your heart rate up, sweat and have fun!
Foam rolling is a form of self-massage or self-myofascial release that can help loosen up tight muscles and “trigger points” that occur when contracted muscle fails to fully release. These adhesions, or knots, can be experienced by people of all ages and fitness levels, and they often result in poor blood and nutrient circulation to the muscle fiber, which can lead to pain or injury. Pliable muscles are healthy muscles, so it’s important to take steps to keep your muscles loose and strong. Come try this class with and see for yourself how many great benefits there are to adding this to your self-care routine. Suitable for all fitness levels.
