Group Fitness Information and Class Descriptions


Prior Injuries or Special Considerations

If you have any special considerations or prior injuries, please inform your instructor before class. This will better assist us in providing proper attention or modifications.

The Warm-Up

For your safety and fitness benefit, it is important that you attend the warm-up at the beginning of each class. If you miss this portion of the class, we will expect you to have a proper warm-up and ask that you please enter quietly and considerately.

The Cool-Down

If you absolutely must leave class early, please know that for your own protection, your heart rate should come down gradually. Also make sure you stretch all major muscle groups as this is an essential part of your fitness and helps to reduce the risk of injuries.


Most of our classes are taught to accommodate most skill levels during a class unless otherwise noted. Intensity and quantity of a given class is determined by each individual member. You can vary each class intensity by changing the size of weight you use (if class requires weight equipment) or by performing the modifications your instructor may recommend.


Talk to your instructor if you have any questions, concerns or ideas about any class. Your feedback is important to ensure proper programming. If you have any other questions feel free to contact Ms. Sylvia Quinn, Associate Director at or Juan Perez, Strength and Conditioning Specialist (Fitness), at


HAVE FUN!!! Allow yourself to let go and enjoy your experience in each class. We are here to provide you with a safe, effective & FUN workout! ENJOY!
