CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

All classes are open to persons 13 years of age unless otherwise noted.

Aqua Zumba 
Known as the Zumba "Pool Party", Aqua Zumba gives new meaning to the idea of an invigorating workout. Splashing, stretching, twisting, even shouting, laughing, hooting and hollering are often heard during an Aqua Zumba class. Integrating the Zumba formula & philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, Aqua Zumba blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that's cardio-conditioning, body toning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief. Instructor: Kathy Frank


Arthritis Aquatics Program 
This class is designed to accommodate the abilities of persons with arthritis and other related diseases. Individuals work at their own pace and are taught in a group setting to help improve muscular strength, endurance & flexibility. Participation may also help with pain management and help to relieve arthritic symptoms. The program is held in the GRC's indoor heated pool. The pool was designed to accommodate many water activities, including: lap swimming, swim lessons, water aerobics, leisure swimming, etc. The National Arthritis Foundation has developed water temp standards for this class (min of 83 F). & the GRC attempts to meet those standards. However, there may be times when the water fall may fall below 83 F due to mechanical issues. The NAF recommends that participants keep moving in the water throughout the class and if necessary, wear a hat, leotards, gloves or t-shirt to maintain body heat. Instructor: Kathy Frank

Cardio Drumming                                                                                                                                                                         What is cardio drumming? It brings together drumsticks, an exercise ball, and an exercise ball stand to create one of the most fun workouts you'll ever do. Using the exercise ball and the floor as your drum, and mixing in fun moves, cardio drumming turns keeping a rhythm into a workout you won't want to stop. Instructor:  Ronni Williams & Lori Bias

SilverSneakers Spin
Indoor Cycling or Spinning is a group exercise class with stationary bikes. The intensity of the workout is influenced by cadence (or pedal rate), resistance of the bike's flywheel, and by the rider's body position (seated or standing while pedaling). Participants determine their own levels of exertion while the instructor encourages and motivates class members throughout the session. Instructor: Lori Bias

SilverSneakers Circuit                                                                                                                      An interval type of physical training that involves high intensity exercise alternated with rest periods and is highly effective in conditioning the cardiovascular system while increasing muscle strength.  Active rest between high intensity work allows the heart rate to drop, giving the participant the opportunity to recover before the next high intensity interval.  These types of workouts can include a mix of cardio exercises with resistance training.  Instructor: Lori Bias

SilverSneakers Strength
A strength class is primarily an anaerobic activity that uses weights, resistance tools and one's own body weight to induce muscular contraction, which builds the strength & endurance of muscles. This type of class will help increase bone density, increase metabolism, improve joint function and provide significant functional benefits for improved activities of daily living. Instructor: Lori Bias

SilverSneakers Tai Chi                                                                                                                                                                      Tai chi is a mind-body practice that originated in ancient China.  It is appropriate for people of almost any age or condition.  Tai chi is a type of low-impact and weight-bearing exercise that began as a martial art.  As it developed, it took on the purpose of enhancing physical and mental health.  Tai chi involves slow, gentle movements, deep breathing, and meditation.  Instructor: Mark Henry

SilverSneakers Yoga
Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual discipline originating in ancient India. While stretching is certainly involved, yoga is also about creating balance in the body through developing both strength & flexibility. This is done through performance of poses or postures, each of which has specific physical benefits. Participants will need to have the ability to get down to and up from the ground (yoga mat). Instructor: Bonnie Finneran 

SilverSneakers Yoga Ball (Boom Level Class)                                                                                                                                          This is a Boom Mind style of Yoga using a stability ball as a prop to traditional yoga postures. It requires the ability to sit and stand independently from a free standing stability ball. If you enjoy yoga, there are plenty of ways to shake up your usual routine. One is adding new tools to the mix—a superb option is using an exercise ball. An exercise ball gives your body a different kind of support to help you increase balance and flexibility.  The stability ball is a great way to get extra support for moves that require endurance and flexibility, and it also adds a balance challenge to some poses. The lack of stability only adds to the workout, firing up different muscles and strengthening the connective tissue that supports the joints of the body.  Instructor: Bonnie Finneran

Latin Cardio Dance Class (Latco)                                                                                                                                                     What is Latco (Latin Cardio Dance)? Latco classes fuse Latin rhythms and choreographed dance moves of the following dances: Salsa. Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, Merengue, Mambo, Hustle and Jive etc....together to create a dynamic workout that's designed for getting fit while having fun! No prior dance experience is required!
