15 Minute Abs

This class will be ever-changing and will include endless core exercises in a quick 15 minutes! A great addition for pre- or post-workout core work. Add it to your group class or come in before or after your fitness center session.

45 to Fit

45toFIT combines elements of High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Circuit Training, and Functional Training. This combination of interval, cardiovascular, and strength training has been proven to be the most effective workout method for burning fat and building lean muscle.

Booty Bootcamp

This class will consist of high-intensity interval training that can leave any one breathless. Bodyweight movements and plyometrics will be involved plus the occasional use of resistance bands and/or weights will make all other exercises a challenge during this class.


CrossFit is a lifestyle characterized by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition. CrossFit can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance. The program works for everyone — people who are just starting out and people who have trained for years.
