Strength & Fitness Classes

Pilates is an exercise system that helps to build strength and flexibility in the body by emphasizing the use of one’s core. Lengthening from a strong center helps to develop toned muscles without bulk. Originally developed as a rehabilitative system, important principles within Pilates help to improve overall physical health, including posture and joint health, and it promotes mindful well being and positive body awareness.

Come sculpt, tone, and align your entire body while you move to music and have fun! Body Barre is rooted in Pilates, Yoga and Dance, but the moves require more strength and stamina than innate grace, so even if you have two left feet, you’ll be able to follow along. No tutus required….wear comfortable workout clothes and expect to go barefoot. Moves are designed to create longer stronger muscles, firmer bottom, toned core….all while improving flexibility and posture.

Strength & Balance, CardioFit and SilverStretch are all classes designed, but not limited, for those over 65.  A chair is used, but optional, for use in all classes.  Fitness, Fun and Friends is the motto for SilverSneakers classes.   Contact Young at Heart for more information.
