The goal of this group is to build muscle and burn fat. Weights will be used in this group but other household items can be used in its place.
Active Isolation Stretch
Tues / Thurs | 8:30 - 9:15am
Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a technique that lengthens and strengthens muscle tissue. Our muscles have two major functions: to contract or relax. The idea of AIS is to hold a stretch for one to two seconds, relax, and then repeat the movement for 10 to 15 times for one to two sets. The benefits of incorporating AIS into your routine are numerous: increased isolated flexibility, realignment of the body, reduced chance of injury and better awareness of your body.Please have mat and a yoga strap or something similar (necktie, towel, rope...) available for this class.
Tues / Thurs | 1:30 - 2:15pm
Develop strength, coordination and balance through this full-body workout incorporating a chair and hand weights (if you do not have hand weights, you can use soup cans). Exercises will be performed in and out of the chair, with coaching on form for the most effective workout.
