Wondering where to begin with Group Exercise?

by Jeri Winterburn, Group Ex Director

Have you been wanting to try a Group Fitness class but don’t know where to begin? You’re in luck. All of the class descriptions have been updated this past month, to help you understand what you can expect from each individual class. If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to drop me an email at groupex@bellinghamathleticclub.com.

Our Summer schedule will begin on Monday, June 10th. Because a lot of members take their exercise outside – we typically cut back on a few of our classes during this season. We will be adding them back to our Fall schedule – which begins at the end of September.

If you have a friend you would like to invite to try one of your favorite classes with you – contact Carly, in member services to get you a class trial pass. We love seeing new faces in the studios.

Pilates

Pilates class is designed to work your powerhouse muscles – abs, lower back, thighs, and buttocks. The discipline emphasizes correct form to help develop strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, coordination, balance, & good posture. Designed for all levels, this class is offered Tuesdays and Thursdays at Cordata and Wednesdays at our downtown location.

Aqua Zumba

Aqua Zumba brings new meaning to the idea of an invigorating workout. It combines the South American Zumba rhythm and dance steps with a pool party! There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba® class so you can really let loose. Water creates natural resistance, which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles. If you like to dance and have fun, come join us! Wednesdays @ 10:30.

Aqua Aerobics

Come experience all the benefits the water can provide in this guided 45-minute music filled balance, cardiovascular, and muscle strength building class. Low impact so it’s easy on the joints but provides resistance to the working muscle for an overall body benefit. Because it’s water, you can work as hard or as easy as you are able so it is appropriate for people of all physical abilities and levels. Check Pool Schedule for days/times.

Zumba Gold

Zumba Gold takes the popular Latin dance-inspired workout of Zumba and makes it accessible for seniors, beginners or others needing modifications in their exercise routine. Zumba Gold builds cardiovascular health by challenging the heart and working the muscles of the hips, legs, and arms with dance moves. Join us Wednesdays @ 8:30 am in the Cordata Gym.
