Outdoor Class Descriptions
The power of this class comes from mixing moving cardio segments with muscle circuits, using the outdoors as our motivation and muse. Whether your choice is to power walk or jog, we all end up together at stops along the city or waterfront landscape using our body, ledges, varying terrain and stairs as our “gym”.
This class ranges in length from 60 to 75 minutes, giving us space and time to complete the circuits for the day. Best part? The feeling that lingers throughout the day when we mix open air with the collective and sweat!
Indoor Class Descriptions
Intense Strength – NEW NORTH BURLINGTON LOCATION ADDED
Be inspired, be transformed! As much mental as physical, this 60 minute indoor full-body muscle building class uses body-weight, dumbbells and thera-bands to create an experience where each muscle group is worked each week, with the goals of increased strength, improved body control, increased metabolism and high calorie burn. The amazing mix of cardio drills with muscle building and a different routine each week means that you are constantly challenged and avoid reaching that dreaded plateau!
In addition to the collective energy in the room, this class allows for various fitness levels to participate as each person selects their resistance level and modifies the exercises according to the instructor cues.
Equipment: dumbbells, mat, thera-band, clean and dry shoes
This class is crafted in 15 minute segments: cardio, lower, upper and core. This class is a full body strength workout deliberately structured so that each person feels comfortable working at their unique pace and intensity. The predictable transition every 15 minutes is intended to calm the mind thus allowing you to fully commit to the exercises in the segment. This class uses a circuit structure which allows Sue to work with you individually while watching for form, management of any injuries and of course the encouragement to breathe and progress.
