Pilates Style Sculpt (70 min.)
This hybrid class draws upon the Pilates principal of "Contrology" (slow controlled movements) to develop a strong core (center) and long lean muscles. It targets the abdominals, back, buttocks, and pelvic floor while standing using free weights and dynabands, and uses the same principles doing mat work on the floor.
Shape-up (70 min.)
This class incorporates a 40-45 minute cardiovascular component, abdominal strengthening and light stretching during the cool down portion of the class. Depending upon the participants, we may also use the aerobic step or physioballs.
If you are looking to strengthen your heart and build endurance and stamina this is the class for you.
EmptyNesters / BabyBoomers & Postnatals
(EN/BB/PN) (70 min.)
A class for individuals who have not exercised in many years and are concerned about Cardiovascular Health, Bone Density, Balance, and Flexibility. This class has a low/non impact component, a free weight component, and mat floor work for abdominal training and stretching. The pace of the class will be slow and progress along with the abilities of the students. Because of the pace of this class, and because Peggy has taught Prenatal and Postnatal women for over 25 years, both are invited and encouraged to participate.
