This class provides the same structure and outline as the Changing Aging class but provides participants with an increase of cardiovascular bursts and less rest time in between exercise sets to maintain elevated heart rate.

This class has a separate intake with a focus on what the participant’s base level of fitness is and whether the class would be an appropriate challenge.

A Medical Referral form and Intake Appointment are required for class participation. Please see the Forms page for more details.

*This intake requires athletic attire and proper footwear (running shoes).

*Our new online class pilot option does not involve cycling. All participants will be required to have at least a space that they can move freely in, along with a chair and a wall. Weights are not required, but other weighted objects will be suggested (i.e. water filled milk jugs, canned goods).
