Cardio / Resistance Classes

Circuit training is a high repetitions, low weight workout with short rest intervals and is geared primarily at improving muscle tone and definition, while improving cardiovascular fitness. This workout involves exercising all major muscle groups (stations) in one continuous cycle, alternating between the different areas to allow for muscle recovery and to force your heart to work harder in pumping blood (and oxygen) to these constantly changing areas. Given the nature of your short rest periods, it is strongly recommended you use machines that do not require much time to select your weight (as opposed to free weights) and that the machines are in close proximity to each other.  Circuits are a great way to experience total body training, burn calories and improve aerobic performance. Anyone can benefit from including circuits into their exercise regimen.

Boot Camp training often starts with dynamic stretching and muscle warm-up, followed by a wide variety of interval training, including lifting weights/objects, pulling rubber bands and TRX straps, pushups/situps, plyometrics, and various types of agility and balance exercises. Sessions usually finish with yoga stretching and core work. Many other exercises using weights and/or body weight are used to lose body fat, increase cardiovascular efficiency, increase strength, and help people get into a routine of regular exercise. The term "boot camp" is currently used in the fitness industry to describe group fitness classes that promote fat loss and a social atmosphere.

PiYo classes combine yoga and Pilates for a mind-body workout.  PiYo is a total-body fitness system designed to get you into shape from head to toe. It combines the practices of Pilates and yoga to help you build strength, lose weight, increase flexibility and have a great time doing it.  PiYo is different than other yoga and Pilates blends in many ways. While it does blend together these two mind-body exercises PiYo prides itself on using upbeat, mainstream music, rather than traditional zen yoga music, to keep students excited, interested and in the zone during the workout. The PiYo system is a total-body strengthening workout. Poses such as plank, side plank, core work, lunges and squats are key elements to engage the large and small muscles of the body. By working in and out of these poses, you build strength using your own body's resistance to help your muscles be toned and sculpted, not bulky as in some classes.

Ski conditioning workout is meant to help start out your season and improve your ability throughout the season by focusing on the most commonly used muscle groups and motions.  The combination of exercises in this functional ski routine will not only build strength and burn a lot of calories but they will also improve your anaerobic threshold, balance and coordination.  Though this routine will get you prepared for hitting the slopes you will still need to add an extra light to moderate cardio component to your weekly workout regimen as you will still want to target your aerobic endurance as well as the anaerobic cardio that you will get from this routine.
