Zumba Gold:
 This class is perfect for active adults who are looking for a modified Zumba class that recreates the original moves you love at a lower intensity. The design of the class focuses on balance, range of motion and coordination. Come ready to sweat, and prepare to leave empowered and strong$6.00 per person. Tuesdays at 10am at the Astoria Recreation Center.

 

H.I.I.T.:

This class offers a form of interval training which alternates between short periods of intense anaerobic exercise, followed by periods of lower intensity recovery periods. Ideal for the busy schedule, interval training offers one of the most efficient forms of exercise in boosting metabolic health. Whether you are a seasoned exerciser who wants a new challenge, or a beginner who wants a quicker way to see results, HIIT is for you!

Slow Flow Yoga:

In Slow Flow Yoga, participants can expect poses that range from gentle to challenging along with utilizing the assistance of props, like a chair. The slower pace allows for a more stable, self-centered energy with a focus on breathing, spinal alignment, and spinal integrity while maintaining balance. Beneficial for building strength, stability and posture, this class is particularly well suited for beginner yoga students or those who desire a deep concentration within their practice, but is still great for all skill levels.

TRX:

TRX suspension training takes a simplified approach to resistance training that includes bodyweight exercises which develops strength, balance, flexibility, and joint stability simultaneously using functional movements and dynamic positions. Learning these basic movements helps you to move better, feel better, and live better. 

Zumba:

Zumba takes the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party.  Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see how effective and fun of an exercise this is. This is designed for everybody and very body.  See why Zumba has taken the world by storm! 

Barre:

Barre Classes use a combination of moves that incorporate ballet, yoga and Pilates. Barre exercises focus on isometric strength training combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements. Barre helps increase flexibility by lengthening muscles. You don't need to be a dancer (or have any dance skill) to gain benefits from barre classes. 

Boot Camp:
This class is designed for people who want a strong and healthy sweat, but no choreographed movements.  Back-to-basic movement patterns, cardio interval drills and muscle endurance weight training produce an effective, calorie-burning workout.  All levels of fitness are welcome, and the instructor will offer progressions and regressions as needed. 

Core/Strength:
Walk taller, feel stronger!  This class is designed to build core muscle groups while improving posture through performing a variety of exercises that strengthen the abdomen and back muscles and increase flexibility.  The instructor may include a variety of equipment in the great work out.  All levels of fitness are welcome, and the instructor will offer progressions and regressions as needed. 

Pound! :
Channel your inner performer and rock your body with this modern-day fusion of movement and music.  Drum along a slammin' soundtrack using Ripstix--weighted drumsticks designed to transform drumming into a kick-butt, fat burning, full body interval workout that will leave you dripping sweat. 

Cycling:
This is a group exercise on stationary bikes.  During the class, the instructor simulates a ride.  Together, you travel on flat roads, climb hills, sprint, and race!  It’s a truly fantastic cardiovascular class.  All levels of fitness are welcome, and the instructor will offer progressions and regressions as needed. 

Cycling 360 (formerly Cycling / Core Strength):
A great cycling class for beginners or those who like a little variety in their work out.  New participants get used to the bike and the experienced cyclist get a shorter cycling experience to do more abdominal strengthening. This class combines 35 minutes of cycling and then move into our fitness studio for 15 minutes of core on the floor, finishing with 5 minutes of deep stretching.
