Nick draws on his experiences as a United States Marine to help push you to your limits and improve your fitness.

Total Body Toning – Leave no muscle un-worked! Enjoy a variety of movements and exercises aimed to work your body with a mix of resistance training and cardio intervals. Forget about “arm day” and “leg day”. In this class, every day is “total body day”.

TRX -- This class will take you through a series of strength and cardio circuits on the TRX Suspension Trainer®, an integrated fitness training system that will be sure to test your strength and balance. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to change the difficulty level.


Jazzercise --  Ever wonder what it would be like to learn a choreographed dance routine? This class offers you the chance to do just that while getting a great workout in the process. You will build up your muscles and stamina as you learn and build on different choreographed routines throughout the semester. Jacquelyn LOVES teaching absolute beginners, so don't worry if you have no experience. You'll be amazed how quickly you turn yourself into a bona fide dancer with this class!

Latin Dance Cardio -- A fusion of Latin and International dance moves that create a dynamic, exciting, and fun fitness class! The routines feature aerobic interval training with a combination of easy to follow dance moves that tone and sculpt the body. All fitness levels welcome & no dance experience required.

Afternoon Yoga – De-stress after class. The middle of the afternoon is the perfect time to unwind and re-focus using a number of different relaxing and invigorating yoga poses and routines. This class is the perfect way to go into the evening with a refreshed mind and body.

Pilates/Sunrise Pilates -- Our pilates classes are a full body workout that are designed to create long, lean muscles with an emphasis on training and developing core strength. Pilates achieves these results by using gravity and your body's own resistance — and sometimes small props, such as balls or weights.

Sunrise Yoga  – Better for you than a cup of coffee, this morning yoga class is the perfect way to start your day! Awaken your body, mind, and soul, and you'll be set up for success before most people have even rolled out of bed.
