Equipment Orientation
This is a 30 minute class for beginners or those who want a refresher on some of our strength and cardiovascular equipment. The instructor will explain and demonstrate 3-8 pieces of equipment. After the demonstration, you will have an opportunity to try the equipment yourself. Instructors will also answer any basic questions you have. In addition to the orientation class, you can schedule a one-on-one orientation session. (Keep in mind, if you are looking for a specific program, please schedule a MicroFit test and personal fitness training sessions.)

Insanity
Unlike traditional, old-school workouts that feature short bursts of maximum intensity with longer periods of rest, INSANITY flips that formula upside-down. INSANITY uses MAX Interval Training, which replaces traditional moderate-intensity exercise with maximum-intensity exercise, and trades short intervals of intensity for short periods of rest. Adding high-intensity exercise forces the body to use fast-twitch muscle fibers not normally engaged in cardio exercise. These fast-twitch fibers continue burning fuel even during lower-intensity exercise.

Kickboxing
