Let’s face it, cardio machines can only do so much for your body and your entertainment level. While group fitness first went mainstream in 1982 with Jane Fonda and her high-energy workouts, group workouts have been around for a long time. Did you know that a Navy seal by the name of Randy Hetrick invented the TRX? He did so because he and his Navy friends on board needed a way to work out but there was no room on board for clunky weights.
Group fitness is a team-building effort. And while cardio machines do serve a purpose, jumping into a group fitness class can nearly double your benefits and triple your fun! Doing the same thing every day will also produce the same results. If you want more from your day, life, and workout, break out of the mundane and step into one of these out-of-the-box fitness classes!
Part of finding a great workout class is finding something that allows you to leave your day at the door. There’s nothing better than doing a fitness class that combines low-impact aerobics and straight-up dance choreography. As if that weren’t enough fun, add some extra energy with some funkadelic lights and pumping music!
HOT HULA Fitness®
Whittle your middle and get down with this total body workout! HOT HULA fitness® increases your core strength and definition while also working your glutes and upper body. It was first inspired by the hip-shaking dances of the Pacific Islands including the use of traditional Polynesian drum beats.

There’s always been a strong connection between the core-specific training of Pilates with the strengthening and stretching of Cal Fit’s yoga. Independently, these classes are important elements to focus on each week. But if you’re short on time, Piloga gives you the best of both worlds! Powerhouse exercises of Pilates with classic yoga poses will turn you into one strong, flexible and zen human being!
What is U-Jam you ask? U-Jam is a hip-hop workout that leans more the athletic way. This high-energy interval training cardio class is masked as a heart-pumping dance workout. The entire hour you’ll feel more like you’re in a music video than a gym studio!
