Bootcamp: 45 minutes of a full-body workout that will get your heart rate up and hit the major muscle groups with large and small ranges of motion. Weights of your choice and additional props may also be used. Please wear sneakers and join us in suite 105.

Bootcamp Express: The same Bootcamp you love, but for 30 minutes.

Cycle + Bootcamp: Starting with a 30-minute Cycle class we’ll get your heart rate up with a variety of Indoor Cycle Drills. Then we’ll head out into the Bootcamp room for a 20-minute full-body workout using bodyweight, hand weights, and other props. You get the best of both worlds when it comes to this combo.

Mommy & Me Bootcamp: Mommy and Me Bootcamp allows moms to bring their child (walking to age 5) to exercise and make new friends. We will focus on low-impact exercises utilizing your body weight (or light dumbbells) followed by a few minutes of playtime for the moms and kids to socialize with each other.

Kettlebells: This class will begin with focused mobility work to increase joint range of motion in areas like the hips, shoulders, and spine. With your body primed and ready to go, you’ll use dumbbells, kettlebells, and body weight to methodically build full-body muscle and power. Each month you’ll also learn a new kettlebell skill to challenge the mind!


Strength Class FAQs

What is strength training?
Strength training- also known as weight training or resistance training- is an activity designed to improve muscular fitness by exercising specific muscles or muscle groups against an external resistance, including free weights, bands, or even your own body weight. The basic principle is to overload the muscle so it needs to adapt and get stronger! Every time you lift you break down muscle tissue ever so slightly so that your body will heal and rebuild the muscle back stronger. Your body is stubborn and it wants to succeed! When you push your muscles- they will push back!

Who can do these classes?
“I’m too old for that!”  “I’m not strong enough to do that!”  “That looks impossible!”  — (things we often hear)
Chances are if you think these thoughts then you are the exact person that should add some resistance exercises into their routine!  Strength training helps to build muscle, yes, but that’s not all it does! Do you have high cholesterol levels? You can improve them with dumbbells! Is your blood sugar all over the place? You can help control it but doing shoulder presses! Are you worried about your bone density levels? Not only will you increase your muscles but you can increase your bone density as well! These are just a few of the many benefits of adding in those weighted exercises. As you are doing those squats you are also building a stronger heart, improving your blood flow, and increasing the endurance of your muscles! Not to mention studies have shown that your metabolism is elevated for up to 38 hours after your training session, so while you are sleeping that night your body is still working hard to burn fat and rebuild your muscle fibers.
I have an old injury that flares up with certain movements. Will I still be able to participate in the class?
Yes! We would recommend that you get in touch with your doctor and the instructor of the class before going over any limitations that you may have, but there are ways to work every single muscle safely and we want to make you get the most out of your workout!
What if I am not strong enough to do some of the exercises that the instructor has planned?
There will always be modifications offered in each class to make sure you work at your fitness level. You might not be strong enough today, but you will be tomorrow!
