Group Fitness Classes

Functional Training

 

Functional Training helps provide you with the strength, stability, power, mobility, endurance and flexibility that you need to thrive as you move through your life and athletic sports. You use basic functional movement patterns like pushing, hinging, squatting, rotating carrying and motor patterns (Walking and Running). Training this way will enhance your performance so you can achieve your goals safely and with good health.

Cardio Kickboxing

 

A combination of aerobics, boxing, and martial arts -- is one of the most popular fitness trends to hit gymnasiums in recent years. These workouts, which are inspired by martial arts, have motivated many people to start a fitness program. This intense, total-body workout can improve strength, aerobic fitness, flexibility, coordination, and balance. During a one-hour kickboxing workout, you can burn from 500 to 800 calories, which is up to twice the calories you burn during a one-hour step-aerobics class.

Interval Training - Beginner to Tabata

 

These 30 to 45 minute sessions focus around an exercise strategy alternating short intense periods of anaerobic exercise with less intense recovery periods.

TRX Body Suspension

 

A workout leverage system using gravity and your body weight to perform several different exercises. You're in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance. TRX Training uses tools and movements that challenge the entire body in every plane of motion.

Spinning

 

Indoor cycling, as an organized activity, is a form of exercise with classes focusing on endurance, strength, intervals, high intensity (race days) and recovery, and involves using a special stationary exercise bicycle with a weighted flywheel in a classroom setting. It is commonly called spinning.

Foam Roll Out

 

The benefits of foam rolling have to do with the mobility of the fascia which is a fibrous layer of connective tissue that surrounds all of the muscles in our body. Without proper mobility, fibers of the fascia become cross linked and they bind to muscles and nerves, inhibiting normal motion and causing pain.

Running Strong

 

A total-body conditioning program. It incorporates plyometric drills and intervals of strength, power, and resistance moves. The program also incorporates ab and core training techniques that will supplement your running to help prevent injuries, improve your strength, and make you a stronger runner over all!

Annual Events

Resolution Week

Resolution week is geared to help supercharge your New Year's Fitness Resolutions and beat the infamous "one-week commitments". Let our expert team of trainers and nutrition specialists provide you with core knowledge and resources to make healthier food decisions that, when partnered with a regular fitness schedule, can help you improve your overall health and physical fitness. Occurs annually in January.

Rejuvenation Week

Rejuvenation week was developed to build on the lessons and habits of Resolution Week by reinforcing the benefits of healthy diet and exercise. Occurring annually in March, Rejuvenation Week keeps participants committed to their wellness goals by offering a fresh set of activities and nutrition tips as they move into the Spring and Summer seasons.

Spring Into Summer Hiking Series

The Spring Into Summer Hiking Series runs from May until October and takes participants to some of the most scenic and picturesque locations Flagstaff and the surrounding areas have to offer. Hikes are scheduled monthly on a Saturday and range from 1.5 to 5 miles in length. These hikes appeal to new and seasoned hikers alike and feature guest speakers and demonstrations each month.

Sacred Mountain Prayer Run

For over 30 years has the first Saturday in June hosted hundreds of runners from all walks of life at Historic Downtown Flagstaff's Thorpe Park to join in prayer and meditation below the sacred San Francisco Peaks. Offering a 2k fun run/walk, 5k and 10k course that winds up the challenging Thorpe Trail onto Observatory Mesa; the Sacred Mountain Prayer Run is a staple of elite runners and enthusiasts as well as amateurs.

Fall Into Fitness

Fall Into Fitness continues to build on the establishment of healthy exercise routines and good nutrition established by Resolution and Rejuvenation weeks by carrying participants through to the latter months of the year with even more routines and nutrition tips.
