Zumba is a fun class filled with easy dance steps that correspond with Latin and International music. Aerobic interval training is combined with fast and slow rhythms.

This class utilizes chair-based, low-impact exercises for building total body strength and improving range of motion. Modifications are incorporated to meet the needs of all fitness levels.

Gentle Stretch consists of flowing, non-strenuous movements to gently stretch skeletal muscles, relax the nervous system, and add a little flexibility and balance to your day. We'll move slow through the basics while using breathing techniques and guided relaxation to help the body feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Ages 16 and up.

Get stronger and improve your balance through exercises that strengthen the ankle, knee, and hip joints, all in a fun and social setting. This class is designed specifically to help prevent falls.
