LASS 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


Arthritis Exercise  
Developed for people with Arthritis, this program helps maintain fitness while reducing arthritis pain. The class offers warm-up, endurance, cool-down, stretch & relaxation. Created and approved by the Arthritis Foundation. Wear comfortable clothing, supportive shoes and bring water. 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


Express Cycling & Strength                                                                                                                                                                     30 minutes of cycling (can be done at your own pace and fitness level) combined with 10-15 minutes of muscle conditioning (arms, abs, glutes etc.) using various types of equipment.  Good times, great music, fun workout!  Instructor: Ann Neu

Chairs will be available as needed for stability/balance.  Instructor:  Lori Bias

 

SilverSneakers Spin - (Level 3)
Indoor Cycling or Spinning is a group exercise class with stationary bikes.

SilverSneakers Strength - (Level 4)
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.
