Aerobic Body Tone
An intense muscle and cardio workout using a barbell. Each of the major muscle groups are worked in turn including chest, back, shoulders and abdominals. This ensures maximum calorie burn and toning as it hits every area of your body
Aqua Aerobics (Summer only)
A form of aerobic exercise performed in shallow water (swimming pool). While similar to land aerobics, water aerobics is cardiac training but with the component of water resistance and buoyancy. Although heart rate does not increase as much as in land-based aerobics, the heart is working just as hard and underwater exercise actually pumps more blood to the heart. Exercising in the water is not only aerobic, but also strength-training oriented due to the water resistance. Moving your body through the water creates a resistance that will activate muscle groups.
