There a number of benefits to youths participating in a strength training program. Contrary to the myth that strength training is detrimental to young bones, when done properly it is actually the best way to develop a strong muscular skeletal system. The most critical time for developing strong bones is during the childhood years. By working with a certified trainer your child will learn correct form and be challenged with realistic, achievable goals. The Teen Fitness Training program will help your teen:

  • Address two major problems in pre-adolescents: too little muscle and too much fat
  • Develop strong bone density
  • Improve body composition
  • Follow a safe, structured supervised program
  • Boost self-confidence
  • Adopt a physically active lifestyle
  • Develop athletic potential
  • Reduce risk of injuries
  • Enhance long-term health

This depends on your individual goals and the amount of time in which you want to achieve those goals. Some clients will consistently train weekly with a personal trainer while others will train for a few weeks, develop a routine, and then meet with them periodically for changes.

A personal trainer can do a number of things for you and your workouts. One of them is to motivate you to work out, this will make it fun and interesting by changing the routine when needed instead of repeating the same routine again and again. Consistency and accountability are a couple of other benefits of working with our personal trainers. When you schedule your sessions, you make a commitment to yourself to improve your health and fitness. Quality and efficiency of workouts also greatly improve! A personal trainer will make sure you are safely targeting the areas you want and plan the session to make the most of your time. Other factors a personal trainer brings to your workouts are general nutritional advice, special needs training, post rehabilitation, and sport specific training.

In Group Exercise, you will find the motivation and support you need to commit to an exercise program. By having a schedule of varied classes offering cardio, strength, and flexibility, you will join the many who have made exercise part of their weekly routine.

Shoot for exercising 3-4 times a week. Focus on cardiovascular training such as elipticals, treadmills, bikes, dance classes or Cycling. Then be sure to add two days a week of strength training such as Selectorized machines, dumbbells, or our strength classes to gain lean muscle mass.

An excellent cardiovascular class focusing on strengthening lower body muscles and the cardio respiratory system. All participants are positioned for correct bike fit and motivated for a 45-minute “ride” of endurance training. Try our Saturday class for a longer ride to enhance your endurance.

Comfortable clothing, a supportive pair of workout shoes, a water bottle, a towel, and your enthusiasm!

Group Exercise classes are ongoing. You decide when to begin. Every class is different in order to provide you with a many choices and vary your workouts. Our schedule changes frequently, so be sure to visit our website to see the most current schedule.

Even if you have never taken a class before, you will learn the proper use of equipment and proper body form. Our certified instructors are here to help you achieve your fitness goals. It is helpful to the instructor if you introduce yourself and let him/her know your concerns about starting fitness classes.

Group exercise classes are designed for all fitness levels. Our instructors offer options during class, so that you can work at your desired level.

Example: Within a cardio class, a low level movement may be a march, while a higher level movement would be a jog. You select the movement that is correct for you to reach your training zone. Within a strength training class, a beginner may work with lighter weights while another participant selects heavier weights.
