Fitness Class Descriptions
Barre Fit is one of the most effective ways to change the shape of your body. Using isometric movements that combine Pilates, strength training, and yoga, coupled with ballet barre flexibility routine, Barre Fit targets all major muscle groups for an invigorating total body workout. Barre Fit classes use deliberate strength and stretching techniques to reshape bodies and challenge even the strongest of athletes. The overall promise is to create long and lean muscles without bulk. This hour long class is a rigorous, fast-paced sculpting class integrating the use of the ballet barre, light weights, bands, and balls with some yoga flow sequencing and stretching. Classes are held in the Fran Russ Recreation Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. Tokens must be purchased from the Park Office prior to attending class. One token per class.
