We have over 70 group fitness class options on our schedule each week and they are open to all levels of  fitness and experience. All of our group fitness classes are free and included with membership, there is no additional charge. If you are attending class for the first time please feel free to come a little bit early and the instructor will be more than happy to help you get set-up for class and demonstrate some of the basic moves you will see in class.

It is important to note that all classes involving equipment, boxing bags, bikes or TRX straps (Cycling, Cyclebox, Kickboxing, TRX or HIIT Fit classes) require that you sign-up ahead of time to secure your spot in class as we have a limited number of bikes and bags available.  You can reserve your spot in class online by clicking on the button below.
