Women’s Cardio Boxing offered

Participants will strike a heavy bag during the class which will require wraps and gloves (purchased by the participant). Drills incorporating jabs, crosses, hooks, and uppercuts will ensure the cardiovascular system is challenged, while pushups, sit-ups, squats, lunges, and running will tone and trim the body. Jumps and the class but can be modified or eliminated if required/desired.

This class is for women of all levels of fitness but participants must be able to move from the floor to a standing position without assistance. This class is 45 minutes; participants are requested to bring water, towel and dress to work out. Classes will be Tuesday & Thursday at 5:00 a.m. at the Deuce Fitness Room, Suite # 5, 150 North Yucca Street.


BARRE Fusion classes open

BARRE Fusion is a fun class incorporating ballet, Pilates, and yoga. This class will change the shape of your body and give you visible results!

Participants are encouraged to remove their shoes and experience the full extension of their muscles. (Barre shoes or sticky socks will also work. Workout shoes prevent the foot from achieving its full extension.) A typical class will use pleas, releves, isometric holds, and core strengthening work. This class is a full hour and works every part of the body. Although it looks easy – it isn’t.

This class is designed for women who want a long, lean look. Light weights are available for use. Participants are requested to bring water and a towel. This class promotes a mind/body connection, a graceful and fluid approach to working out, and laughter. There’s nothing better than knowing that everyone in the room is working hard but is smiling while doing it! BARRE Fusion is the best. Classes will be Monday & Wednesday at 5:00AM at the Deuce Fitness Room, Suite # 5, 150 North Yucca Street. The evening class schedule will go as followed; Tuesday & Thursday 5:30PM. There are fees for these classes, please inquire with the Recreation Center.
