Strength and Endurance Classes

Small Group Training

Ability Level: All

If you would like to belong to a small group who are dedicated to improving their strength and muscle endurance, then Small Group Training may be for you. Small Group Training offers the opportunity for each individual to experience resistance training led by a certified trainer while sharing the cost with others who have similar fitness goals. Your Small Group Trainer will teach strength training techniques and muscle activation patterns, as well as ensure you are using correct posture and challenge yourself to progress in your workouts.

Work your muscles in every way possible in this class designed to build strength, add definition, increase your bone density, and decrease your body fat by increasing your lean muscle. Hand weights, plate loaded barbells, tubing and your own body weight will be used to contour and change the shape of your body in this class. Max 10 per class.
SHED IT! Level 1

Ability Level: Beginner

If you are new to exercise, don’t know how to get started, on your way to a healthier lifestyle, or the idea of working out is stressful and intimidating, this may be the program for you. Shed IT uses a slow and steady approach to both exercise and nutrition. Exercise classes in Shed IT start with the basics of movement and will focus on proper form and safety. The fitness component progresses during the eight week program to further strengthen your body as a whole.  As your physical strength and knowledge of proper form progresses, you will have the chance to sample a variety of fitness classes offered at SLS FSC in a non-threatening small group setting. The goal of the class is not just to strengthen your body but to gain the self confidence you need to comfortably and safely participate in a variety of instructor-led fitness classes on your own. The nutrition portion of this registered program will be guided by the principles that diets do not work and that your body requires proper fuel to be healthy. Meal planning, healthy life-long nutrition habits, and portion control
techniques will be taught as the underlying keys to success of healthy eating. Starvation and denying yourself the pleasure of food does not belong in this program!
