New and Exciting Classes!

Our Group Exercise schedule is always updated with the seasons – and our Fall changes went into effect on the first of October. With the change of seasons come some new and exciting classes you might not be aware of.

At the Cordata club, we have added a Tuesday night PiYo class at 5:30 p.m. with Melissa.  The definition of this class is a mix of Pilates, which focuses on muscle and core building, and yoga, which focuses on strength and flexibility.  This is a TOTAL body workout and is designed to strengthen small muscles (triceps, shoulders, biceps, calves) and large muscles (hamstrings, back, and chest).  But don’t let the name fool you!  Here are 4 things you need to know about this class:

You’ll sweat A LOT!  – This class is like going out for a run, without putting too much pressure on your body.  It’s great for people who have struggled with injuries and are looking for a low impact workout – where sweat is included!

You’ll get a good STRETCH! – PiYo is fast-paced, and you will get a perfect total-body stretch while raising your heart rate.

You’ll gain ENDURANCE – This workout focuses on cardio and muscle building including squats, lunges with pulsing and a lot of core sculpting.  You will step out of class feeling strong and sweaty!

It’s FUN! – Most members have said that they enjoy the fast pace and music in this class.

If you are looking for a great workout that gets it all done in under an hour – give it a try!

We’ve also added another Retrofit class on Wednesday mornings in the gym with our new instructor Andrea, beginning at 8:30 a.m.

At our DOWNTOWN club, we have added another Strong & Stable class with Lesley on Thursday mornings at 8:30 a.m.

And KATE’S BACK! She will be teaching Power Hour on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 5:30 a.m.  After taking the summer months off, the early morning crew is thrilled to have her back to get their days started right!

We have Cindy teaching a Thursday Power Pump class at 12:00 for all of you that want to squeeze in a lunchtime workout.

So mark your calendars and attend some new classes this month.  Most of these classes were added due to high requests from our members.  Please remember: these classes are “Group” exercise so if they aren’t well attended we will look into other options, with the possibility of canceling them from our schedule.

I always love to hear your ideas and feedback – so please don’t hesitate to email me anytime at groupex@bellinghamathleticclub.com. ~Jeri
