SUNRISE H.I.I.T. (NEW!):
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a super effective to bump up your cardio and strength workouts to add intensity and variety. In this class we alternate short, very high intensity intervals with longer, slower intervals to recover. The idea is to work in the upper percentage of your target heart rate zone, around a 9 on this Perceived Exertion Scale, meaning you go all out, as hard as you can during the work intervals.This takes you into your anaerobic zone, a place where there isn't enough oxygen for your body. Kind of like being on Mars without your helmet and something you could only do for a very short period of time. Shave, your instructor will incorporate dumbbells, gliding discs, speed ropes, kettle bells & body weight. Such an awesome way to start your day & rev up the metabolism!
SALUTE THE SUN: Join the group of early risers for a fun and energizing yoga class. Alignment-based asana, juicy stretches and restorative relaxation: what better way to start your day?! All levels welcome!
