G.S.T. - Group Strength Training:
This non-stop endurance-based strength class increases your stamina through a series of progressive strength exercises. Endurance strength typically involves lighter weights and higher repetitions to create a longer, leaner physique. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy! The fact that it’s progressive also means you will be taken through a series of steps in order to challenge your muscles every time you walk in the door. And wherever you’re at on your fitness journey, this class caters to every fitness level. Join us on the weight room floor!
You don’t have to be superhuman flexible to join a yoga class. But whether you are just beginning, are intermediate, or can practically do handstands in your sleep, yoga is something everyone should do. Some of the many health benefits include helping to reduce your stress level through mindfulness modalities like meditation and deep-breathing exercises. Yoga also strengthens your entire body-especially your core. Flexibility, improved posture, lowered blood pressure, and injury-prevention from other physical activities outside of yoga are other perks of incorporating a yoga practice. Aim for a minimum of once a week. Join in a Yoga Basics, Family Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Power Yoga, or other yoga variations this week!
Not everyone has an easy time making it to the gym. But considering 31,412 people over the course of two and a half months danced their way into a Zumba® class at California Family Fitness, it’s easy to say we’ve found your no-excuse way to work out. Zumba® is a nationwide phenomena that combines Latin dance moves like salsa, merenque, and flamingo with other dance styles like hip-hop and belly dancing. Zumba® also has another class called Zumba® Gold, which takes the beginner, active older adult, and any participants needing special modifications through an energetic class that everyone can do. Classes can also burn up to 350 calories!
