We have a 24 person limit in each class. Therefore, all classes are on a sign-up basis. You may call or stop by the member service desk to reserve a bike as early as opening the day before your desired class time. You may sign-up other members of your household but not your friends or coworkers. Sign-ups are on a first come first serve basis. If you are unable to attend the class you are signed up for, please call to cancel your reserved spot so that others may have a chance to take the class.
A low-impact, shallow water workout for men and women that will stretch muscles, in- crease agility and range of motion.
Physio Yoga is a style of yoga that is educational and a great workout. You will be taught the science and benefits of each pose and you will leave feeling like you just had a massage inside and out!
This class offers the detailed knowledge of individual poses. It will help you build strength, flexibility and body awareness for all other physical engagements as well as the faster paced flow yoga classes.
Pickleball is a fun game that is played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is a racquet sport which combines elements of badminton, tennis and ping pong. Pickleball is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court, and it is played with a perforated plastic baseball (similar to a whiffle ball) and wood or composite paddles. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-pasted competitive game for experienced players.
