These classes are open to any and all fitness levels! All fitness classes will utilize your own body weight and do not require any equipment; please see below for full class descriptions. You will need about 4″ x 4″ of space to do these workouts safely. Working out on carpeting is recommended but not required. We also suggest wearing comfortable, non-restrictive clothes. All classes will be taught by Jeff Palmer, except Zumba, which will be taught by Karen Cornelio.

12 p.m. BOOT CAMP (50 min.)


4:30 p.m. ZUMBA (50 min.)

4:30 p.m. TOTAL BODY (50 min.)


Up for a challenge? Boot Camp will make use of a variety of body weight movements that will keep you guessing! The goals? Get stronger, move faster, and feel better in 50 minutes!

This 50 minute muscular endurance-based workout will provide you with the “fundamentals” of exercise and will make your body feel stronger and leaner!

Perfect for everybody and every body! Each Zumba class is designed to bring people of all levels together to sweat it out. Zumba takes the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and world rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.

Zumba is a total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.

You’ll need some room to get down, supportive shoes, water nearby, and a towel.
