Y-FITNESS CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

BARRE

Barre is a high-energy program focusing on strength, flexibility, stamina and dynamic stability. It is full
body sculpting using the ballet barre and small, isometric, concentrated movement - paying particular
attention to correct biomechanics of movement.

Cycling

Be ready to climb mountains and speed through intervals while listening to good music. You will want
water and towel for this one for sure!

HIGH FITNESS

HIGH transforms old school aerobics into a highly addictive new fitness experience that combines simple,
modern fitness techniques (i.e. HIIT, plyometrics, etc.) with music you know and love. This results in a
high energy, INTENSE and crazy fun workout that leaves participants feeling HIGH and wanting more.
Our formula alternates between cardio peaks and toning tracks that will take your heart rate to the sky and
strength to the next level.

Pilates

Pilates is a great core workout for beginners and advanced alike. This program hones in on the torso and
sling muscles that connect your upper and lower body. It’s ideal for tightening your tummy and glutes, as
well as improving functional strength and assisting injury prevention.

POUND

Instead of listening to music, you become the music in this exhilarating full-body workout that
combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training with yoga and pilates-inspired movements. Using
Ripstix®, lightly weighted drumsticks engineered specifically for exercising, POUND transforms drumming
into an incredibly effective way of working out.

PUMP

Pump is the original, invigorating barbell workout, free weight workout, and other exercise equipment that
exercises all the major muscle groups for a more toned, fitter and healthier you. Pump classes use weight-
room exercises like squats, lifts and curls to give your legs, arms and upper body a complete workout.

RIPT

Looking for the chiseled and toning effect? This class uses free weights, resistance bands, barbells, steps,
body weight, and plyometrics to tone and tighten everywhere.

STRONG by Zumba

STRONG by Zumba ® combines body weight, muscle conditioning, cardio and plyometric training moves
synced to original music that has been specifically designed to match every single move. Every squat,
every lunge, every burpee is driven by the music, helping you make it to that last rep, and maybe even five
more.

Yoga

Ease the stress of your day by using dynamic breathing and strong flowing movements for greater
strength, flexibility, and range of motion.

Zumba

We take the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style,
calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba ®
Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. A total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle
conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave
class.
