Specialty Fitness Classes

How to Survive a Group Barbell Class – Saturday 11/2 (#8996)No charge for group Fitness members. Do you feel that whatever you do, your body is just not the same as it used to be? Some of us can do cardio every day and still not see any weight loss and as we age, it seems like everything is shifting. Studies show that after a certain age the thing that will change your body the most is lifting weights. We go over proper form for all the exercises in the Group Barbell class. Without proper form, you won’t see the results you want and you may hurt yourself! You can ask questions and will get answers. You will be shown modifications if you can’t use the bar or you have a weak (insert body part here!). Even if you think you know what you are doing, it’s always nice to have someone gently point out some ways you could really improve your form. Poor form can exacerbate poor posture while proper form can enhance posture!

Sunday Afternoon Yoga #(8997) – Sunday 10/20 1:15-2:45 PM $13/NR, $10/R, $6.50/NR GF Member, $5/GF Member (More times available). The alternative to Sunday football! During these 90 minute classes, you will have plenty of time to warm up the body for the invigorating vinyasa flows, mixed with longer holds, that will follow. Be prepared to sweat, but you are welcome to make the class as gentle or as challenging as you like. There will be lots of opportunity towards the end of class for floor postures, leading to your final Savasana. The classes are geared toward the Yogi who has a basic knowledge of Yoga, but all are welcome and modifications will be given. Please bring a mat and a water bottle. 

Pelvic Floor and More! (#8992) Monday, 10/28 8:15-915 PM or (#8994) Saturday, 10/19 -10:30-11:30 AM. Why should you care? Two words! Urinary Incontinence. That’s the big answer, but you will learn more than just the right way to do Kegels. We will learn why this group of muscles is so important and how to strengthen your core from the inside out!

Foam rolling and How to do it (#9002) – Monday, 11/4 12:45 PM (Additional sessions available). Do you have tight hamstrings? Maybe shoulder /neck or lower back pain? Do you have a foam roller at home that just sits in the corner? During this one hour session you will learn what Fascia is and why it is important to keep it hydrated by using this inexpensive piece of equipment. You will also learn how to use small balls to help alleviate pain in many areas. Please bring a foam roller - we do have a few extra. If you buy one, start with a smoother, softer surface! If you have an extra tennis (good) or lacrosse (better) ball, please bring that as well!
