Group Fitness Class Descriptions
ACTIVE AGING – Lifelong Fitness (specially designed for older adults)
Cardio, Strength, and Stretch: Combines all your favorite aspects of fitness and puts them into one solid workout! Combine 15 minutes of cardio, 15 minutes of strength, and 15 minutes of flexibility! Light to moderate class that works on slowly improving overall cardio, endurance, muscle tone, and flexibility.
Exercise for Every ‘Body’: An energizing workout to the beat of the music for all shapes and sizes! Use a height-adjustable step and simple movements on, over, and around your step combined with muscle conditioning and strengthening to shape and tone your entire body.
Yoga in Chairs: Gently works muscles and joints to enhance strength, range of motion, balance, and circulation. Reaches beyond typical exercises as it encourages quiet reflection, proper breathing, and better posture.
Zumba Gold™: For the largest growing segment of the population: baby boomers! It takes the Zumba formula and modifies the moves and pacing to suit the needs of the active older participant, as well as those just starting their journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle.
Cardio Shape: Develop your strength, muscular definition, and stamina through conditioning drills, calisthenics, cardio, and strength all in one class!
Nia: Integrates dance, martial arts, and healing art forms into a unique program that leaves you feeling exhilarated and powerful. Increase cardiovascular health, strength, balance, agility, and creative expression. All sizes and fitness levels welcome.
Zumba™: A high-energy combination of Latin, Reggae, and Salsa dance steps. Routines combine fast and slow rhythms to achieve a balance of cardio and muscle-toning benefits. Join our certified Zumba instructors; no previous dance experience necessary!
Fusion at its Best: This class incorporates exercises from different workout styles—including barre, yoga, strength training, cardio, and dance—to give a modern twist to Mat Pilates. Like Mat Pilates, this style has a deep focus on the core and emphasizes moves that will tone, stretch, and elongate muscles. This can be an incredible workout that will engage, challenge, and change the way you exercise. Fusion Workouts combine four disciplines that will help you gain strength, muscle definition, flexibility, balance, and overall mind–body health
Hatha Yoga: Focuses on linking gentle postures (asanas) while concentrating on stilling the mind. Bring strength and stamina to your entire body while relieving stress. Great for beginners and continuing students.
Pilates Method: Designed to improve core strength, flexibility, muscle tone, body balance, spinal support, low back health, and body-mind awareness.
Stretch and Tone: The time to improve your flexibility and fitness is now! This course is designed with you in mind, as we focus on stretching while integrating exercises aimed at toning your muscles. You feel refreshed and energized after participating in this gentle, yet moderate pace class

The center was completed in 1998. The Thompson Vaivoda Architects design included a future, two-pool natatorium. The 2002 Levy provided funding for its construction. The aquatic center was added in 2008 and received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The center's tower, bike racks, fences, and benches were designed by Garth Edwards, and in 2009 a stainless steel sculpture by local artist Bruce West was installed near the front entrance. Entitled Sitting Stones, it is a dynamic composition that reflects the changing light of the day and the season.
