Each modality can be used in a group fitness format OR tailored for personal training
Cardio Chisel - Max out on the clock while your entire body and mind grow stronger. If I said, do 8 reps and you can actually do 12 reps, I have limited your success. If I said do 8 reps and you can only do 4 reps right now, I have created an opportunity for you to feel badly about yourself. How does anyone know, other than you, how many reps you can complete? Here is the trick: Working with an interval, such as 30 seconds, allows YOU to be successful with what YOU can do in that time period. The interval allows for you to keep improving while keeping the group exercise class flexible for most levels of fitness. Exit class with your new appreciation for how mentally capable you are to do more than you ever believed you could or would do for yourself.

Creative choreography using small hand weights, a ballet barre and a small ball. This is a unique format that tends to surprise people when they tackle it. Often we see participants picking up 5 & 8 pound weights, only to then later put them down for the suggested 2-3 pound weights. Low impact options available.
Lift heavy? This type of barre workout will surprise you with how challenging it is because it is higher reps and often smaller targeted movements. Not a dancer? No worries. Move how your body says it would like to move.
Adult(s) & Kid(s) Class
Using my own daughter as a demo, I will be taking adults through a workout that includes your kids. Imagine a squat with your baby as added resistance? For toddlers, they can be right next to you on a mat of their own following along. For Pre-K kids, they can come with you as well and either participate or just bring something for them to do while YOU workout.

Are you an athlete looking to improve your fitness for you sport of choice? I have competed in almost every sport that exists, including tennis, football, softball, running, and obstacle course racing. I can train you to improve your speed, agility, and mental toughness. Please see the special designated page for athletic training as a model of my athletic conditioning training. It's excellent to do this type of training in a group both for moral support to one another and cost efficiency.
Muscle Maddness - Weights! Sometimes it just feels good to lift heavy stuff. 1. Strength 2. Cardio and 3. Core power training. This class is also on an interval clock, just like Cardio Chisel. The interval promotes a concurrent cardio workout without the solid focus of jumping for your cardio burn. Occasionally we use stability balls and bands to confuse our bodies and keep things interesting. The music is often matched exactly to the rate of movement. Think 4 counts down, 4 counts up for your deadlift as "Cruise" projects a perfect beat to keep you on track. It is an energetic workout and will leave you feeling strong and successful. :-)
Body Bar Barre
A hybrid Class: 1) Low or high impact cardio 2) Effective "pilates" core work, & 3) Quality strength training from "barre." The moves will help lengthen and strengthen your body as well as help you with recovery from previous workout beatings.
Everyone loves a good circuit class, because it allows for a large variety of equipment and moves and the class flies by. Sometimes you will move about stations with a partner who can help motivate you to keep going and/or trade some colorful statements between one another about how mean SunshineKelly is to make you do deadlifts followed by burpees.
Example Circuit - 1) Bicep curls on a TRX band 2) Push-ups on a bosu ball 3) Wall ball squats using a medicine ball 4) Burpees 5) Deadlifts with dumbbells. A “circuit” means that you complete each of these moves for an interval of time or a designated number of reps before moving on to the next move. You are in a group class room, but working at your own pace at the station (i.e. you aren't watching the instructor at the front of the room). As the instructor, I am free to move about the room to help participants individually, because I am not at the front of the class room demonstrating each move each time. The pace is fast and the class will fly by!

A "Silver Sneakers," type of approach to this modality. The goal is to mimic activities of daily living such as getting out of bed, getting into the car, and getting into the bath tub. Strength training is important at any age and we certainly aren't shy about picking up a dumbbell to get it in.
Post Pardum, Diastasis Reci, and "no time," were some of my challenges as a new mom. I've overcome the first two and time will always be the world's challenge. During my pregnancy, I exercised until the day of delivery. I competed in a 40 mile bike ride, and continued to teach my fitness classes. I can help you if this is where you are at in your health journey.
