New Classes Coming to JCH&L Burkley Fitness Center

Get fit with POUND®, Fighter Fit Cardio, or Spinning Classes

In December, JCH&L Burkley Fitness Center will offer a demo for a potential new class, start a new class, and bring back a favorite class.

On Thursday, Dec. 6, try out POUND® in demos to be held at 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. The demo is free to members and non-members alike. POUND® is a cardio jam session inspired by drumming, which provides an exhilarating full-body workout that combines cardio, conditioning and strength training with yoga- and Pilates-inspired movements. It is designed for all fitness levels. Instructor is Clayton Brandt. Following the demos, we will determine interest in a class.

Fighter Fit Cardio will be offered on Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. beginning Monday, Dec. 3. Fighter Fit Cardio focusses on high-impact interval training through a variety of exercises and drills meant to improve cardiovascular fitness, core strength, balance and muscle endurance. Stations include: Jab/Cross, Front Kick, Elbows, Thai Clinch Knees, Pad Work, Rope Drill, Sprawls/Burpees, Up Kick and Ground and Pound. This call will be instructed by Clayton Brandt.

Spinning classes return in December, meeting at noon on Tuesdays Dec. 3, 11, and 18, then returning every Tuesday starting Jan. 8. Spinning is a very motivational and upbeat class. You will experience great music, different pedaling speeds and positions while riding seated or standing. Core muscles are challenged due to the turning ability of the bikes. This a low-impact class for your joints, but a great cardio workout that you can make as easy or as challenging as you want. Instructor is Craig Bontrager.

All classes are free to members. Non-members may participate by purchasing a $7 per day guest pass, or a $25 punch card (6 visits.)
