Our classes are designed to serve all levels of fitness.

Grown-ups need Recess too!  Exercise reduces stress, shrinks waist lines and helps to maintain sanity.  Whether you are just starting out or have been active for years, our instructors will provide options suitable to your needs. Childcare available by appointment during select classes!
