We have two opportunities for new classes to begin whenever there is a minimum of 4 participants. Each class will run for 4-6-weeks. There will be a maximum of 5 participants. Call for details.

60 minutes- 4-6 weeks- Starts (whenever) at 2pm. This class will use various forms of equipment, with intervals of cardiovascular exercise.  A core segment will include balance and Pilates exercises.  It also includes some game-like activities, e.g. obstacle courses and partner activities to achieve a fun whole body work-out. Taught by Ellen Flaxman, MS, CPT, this class is designed to be fun as well as an effective way to improve fitness. This is an intermediate level class.

Taught by personal trainer, Linda Meyer, CPT, this group class (max. 5 participants) will focus on flexibility, stability, strength, balance and endurance. It is designed as a full body workout with the aim of helping each person achieve his/her fitness goals.
60 minutes – Starts Monday, June 23 (or later) at 6pm.This class would follow a very specific HIIT (high intensity interval training) protocol called Tabata.  It consists of 20 seconds “on” and 10 seconds “off” – meaning that you work very hard for 20 seconds, catch as much of your breath as you can for 10 seconds, and repeat that 4 times.  You will rest for 1 minute and do the next “tabata.”  For a total of 8 tabatas. The class is taught by Helane Hurwith, MS, CPT, and includes cardio portions, bodyweight sections and weighted exercises.  This protocol has been shown to burn calories even after the class is over – in fact, for hours.  The fitness industry is abuzz about HIIT and Tabata and this is your chance to experience it yourself!  This class is for experienced intermediate or advanced exercisers.
We will show you how to properly prepare for walking, warm-up, stretch, add intensity and cool-down.  Most likely time will be late afternoon or early evening, days will vary. Let us know of your interest.
