General Information


This 12 week class will teach you and your family how to start changing your life into the healthiest version possible.  Each week is a new theme for exercise, healthy eating, injury prevention, stress relief and finding a way to make this new lifestyle stick.  For the person who has tried everything to find the body and life they want and has yet to achieve it or who is working on sticking to their healthiest lifestyle, this series is for you.

Participants may enroll in the entire series or join any of the weeks that pertain to their specific fitness journey. Individuals must sign up for these classes but are welcome to bring any family members along to learn with them.

Expectations and Goals

The information presented in this course is meant to empower individuals to take control of their life and health habits. It is a lifetime’s accumulation of advice and instruction from the education and experience of our certified personal trainers. There are many ways to lead a healthy lifestyle, and it is up to the participant to use the information in a way that works for them. It is not meant as medical advice and all participants are encouraged to follow the advice of their physician when working toward wellness.

Each week will include a pre-designed workout that is adjusted in class to each individual participant’s needs. The goal by the end of the 12 week series is for each participant to know what they need to do to reach their individual health and fitness goal, and to have the motivation to work toward that goal until it is achieved.

Course Materials

An overview of each class will be provided each week for participants. All equipment will also be provided while in class. If you would like photo reminders during class bring a camera or cell phone.

Please bring water and a towel to put between you and the equipment during class.
