GROUP EXERCISE:

Our Group Exercise Instructors lead a group of participants through a series of movements and exercises using music as the basis of rhythmic exercise. Here at East Coast Fitness we offer many forms of fitness activities from Step Aerobics, to cardio, yoga, Pilates, cycling, and many more.

Boot Camp: A fun and challenging co-ed workout that is different each week. Various stations challenge muscle strength, agility, endurance, and balance. Combined with traditional calisthenics this class will never get old. Weather permitting, we do go outside.

Cardio Barre is a unique, high energy/no impact exercise class that combines barre work and lightweights with continual cardio fat burning motion. Central to the workout are toning and resistance exercises for the booty, legs, torso and arms to sculpt muscles and elongate the muscles in the body.

All stations will be modified and intensified to meet everyone’s needs. No intimidation or judgement here, just come ready to work!

INSANITY LIVE group exercise classes are predesigned, athletic, drill-based, interval workouts. The workouts are inspired by drills that athletes use to improve their sports performance. While it’s not necessary to be an athlete to take part in INSANITY LIVE workouts, nor is INSANITY LIVE intended to achieve such results for athletes, this was the inspiration for the program. In the same way that kickboxing fitness programs are inspired by martial arts, and ballet barre fitness programs are inspired by ballet, INSANITY LIVE allows everyday fitness enthusiasts to enjoy the nature and athleticism of drills training to achieve weight loss and overall fitness and wellness benefits.

Zumba- is a fusion of Latin and International music / dance themes that create a dynamic, exciting, and based on the principle that a workout should be “FUN AND EASY TO DO.” The routines feature aerobic/fitness interval training with a combination of fast and slow rhythms that tone and sculpt the body.

Flexibility is crucial to my fitness. Incorporating a good warm-up and cool-down into every session decreases my chances of injury. I use both dynamic and static stretching in my training. I’ve starting doing a few yoga sessions which incorporates muscle strength and flexibility.
