Welcome Back to the Academy!

Academy for sports and wellness sign

We are so excited to welcome you back to the Academy (outdoors to start!) and get moving with you again. Beginning next week, we will be offering a selection of classes you may attend using your membership or class pack. Our hope is to expand class offerings with time and demand. Please take a moment to read through class details and precautions we are taking outlined below. 

You will notice a new class offering called, Total Body Fitness. Think of this class as a fusion of Lunch Crunch, Iron Maidens, and HIIT. It is targeted to our clients who previously attended those classes. It is a moderate-high intensity workout combining strength and cardiovascular exercises with the use of bodyweight, bands, free weights and more. 

Not ready to attend class? No problem. Academy instructors will be recording a 30-minute Total Body Fitness workout using no equipment. All levels of fitness are welcome, modifications and progressions will be provided. 

The details:

  • Classes will take place on the east side of the building. You will see reserved parking spaces and our check-in station set up, that is our workout space –  it is shaded!
  • All class packs and memberships will be extended to reflect our 3-month closure
  • All classes are 45-minutes in length
  • If your schedule allows, feel free to arrive a few minutes early to get started with our check-in process
  • Classes are limited to 10 participants 
  • Bring your own mat, water, and a chair if you’d like a place to sit during rest periods
  • Pre-registration is required. Please create an account by clicking on the class you’d like to attend HERE and pre-register for classes as space is limited and to receive updates regarding inclement weather OR email  24 hours prior to class time. In instances of inclement weather, we will offer class virtually using Zoom. We must have your email if you’d like to participate virtually.
