Adult Wellness Programs

Whether you are just getting started or ready to take your fitness to a new level, we have a program designed specifically for you. Small group training programs and specialty fitness classes offer every member the support and guidance needed to achieve their goals. 

 

Gauge Your Fitness

Looking to test your fitness?  We have a couple different ways for you to track your progress and can be used to help you determine your goals.

  • Fitness Assessment.  This physical fitness testing is used extensively to predict chronic disease risk, quantify fitness levels, and assess performance.  It can be used to identify areas of focus for your workout and keep track of your fitness.  Includes: resting vital signs, STYKU scan, and a cardiovascular, muscular, and flexibility test.  Cost $45 (Members only). 
  • STYKU Scan.  This body composition analysis measures body surface area, determining circumference measurements to predict body fat percentages, muscle to fat ratios and more.  The software can provide personalized plans for weight reduction and chronic disease prevention.  Pre and post tests can be compared to show measureable changes in body composition that a scale is unable to show.  Cost $25 (Members only). 
  • Cycle Power Test.  This tough aerobic test is an indication of your cardiovascular and muscular fitness level.  The test will give you your max power (watts) produced in 20 minutes, which then can be used to provide you with personalized intensities for cycling.  Cost $10 for Members, $25 for Non-Members.   

Group Exercise

Group exercise is a FREE drop-in program for members.  We offer about 74 classes a week with class sizes ranging from 10-40 people.  There is a wide variety of formats including strength, bootcamp, Cycle, balance, Pilates, Yoga, Zumba and BollyX.  To assist in determining what classes can best help you reach your goals, schedule a Wellness Consultation.

Weigh To Change

This a comprehensive 10 week lifestyle change and weight loss program open to individuals of all levels of fitness.  Our Wellness staff meet you where you are at and help you gain knowledge, strength, endurance, and confidence to live a healthy lifestyle.  The 10 week program includes weekly personal training sessions, individual nutrition counseling, weekly group training sessions, online support, Styku body scans to track your progress, and weekly workshops.

Small Group Training

Our small group training classes are great if you are looking for a smaller group and more individual attention.  These classes are taught by certified personal trainers and class sizes range from 4-8 people.  Our small group classes are session based and run 6-8 weeks at a time.  The workouts of these classes are geared more to the goals and fitness level of the class participants and the trainer is able to provide modifications more easily due to the more intimate setting.  Trainers program these classes progressively so participants can see growth throughout the session.   

Small group training classes are not drop-in.

  • Swimming for Triathletes
  • Cycle Power
  • Cardio Turf Express (offered in Espanol)
  • Functional Strength Express (offered in Espanol)
