Specialty Programs

Pilates Classes

Reformer and Chair classes will improve core strength, flexibility, and joint mobility, along with leaving you feeling tall and refreshed. As Joseph Pilates states, in 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 you will see the difference, and in 30 you will have a whole new body. First time participants must complete Reformer Intro (offered during spring and fall only) or receive at least 2 private Pilates training sessions and have instructor's approval prior to enrolling. 


Warm Water Arthritis

This 45 minute class takes place in our warm water therapy pool, which allows for flexibility and mobility of the joints. Arthritis Foundation certified instructors will lead you through a series of exercises that can help relieve the pain and stiffness caused by arthritis. 

Schedule information for all of our Speciality Programs is available in the current Fitness Center program guide, which can be accessed by going to the Fitness Center home page and clicking on the blue button.
