This class uses the “interval principle” of combining cardio, strength and resistance exercises to help you achieve a new level of fitness.  Here is how we do this!

  • We start the class with a standard range of motion warm-up – getting our muscles and joints working and ready to work out
  • Now we work the interval principle doing movement exercises for approximately 3 minutes to get our heart rate up.
  • Next; strength and resistance exercises have us working for our upper and lower body muscle groups.
    • We use slow steady traditional movements that work our chests, back, shoulders, biceps and triceps and core.
    • We alternate these upper body exercises with lower body exercises that target our calves, quads, hamstrings and glutes.
  • We continue to alternate between upper body exercises, cardio movements and then lower body exercises until we hit all of our muscle groups.
  • For our cool down, we bring balance exercises into our workout.  This is all about doing balance exercises for your own ability but also slowly challenging ourselves to get better balance.  We start from a standing position and then slowly move to a seated position as we finish our workout

This is a class for all fitness levels because you can work at your own pace but Janet will also give you the opportunity to challenge yourself as you work your way to increasing your strength, balance and overall fitness level.
