Fitness Class Descriptions
Essentrics  All full-body workout that draws on the flowing movements of Tai Chi for balance and flexibility, the core strength of ballet for long, lean muscles and the agility building of physiotherapy.

Fit For Life Need an extra push? Our Fit for Life class is a full-body, aerobic and strength conditioning workout. ALL fitness levels are welcome! Our goal is to offer encouragement rather than intimidation. We want you to have tons of fun – but be prepared to challenge yourself. 

Foam Rolling is a form of self-massage or self-myofascial release that can help loosen up tight muscles and "trigger points" that occur when contracted muscle fails to fully release.  Our foam roller class has been specifically designed to improve flexibility, reduce muscular stiffness, speed up recovery, and alleviate pain.

  Focus on your postural muscles, which help keep the body balanced and are essential for supporting the spine. Pilates teaches awareness of breath and alignment of the spine while strengthening the deep torso muscles.

Senior Yoga  Find balance, enhanced breathing, strength, vitality and more. This class is designed for seniors and taught by a certified instructor.

SilverSneakers® Cardio  Increase cardiovascular and muscular endurance with a standing circuit workout. Upper-body strength work with hand-held weights, elastic tubing and a ball is alternated with non-impact aerobic choreography. A chair is used for support.

SilverSneakers® Chair Yoga  Get ready to move through a series of seated and standing yoga poses. Chair support is offered to perform postures designed to increase flexibility, balance and range of movement. Restorative breathing exercises and final relaxation will promote stress reduction and mental clarity.

SilverSneakers® Classic  Move to the music with exercises designed to increase muscular strength, range of movement, and activity for daily living skills.

SilverSneakers® Stability  Get stronger and improve your balance through exercises that strengthen the ankle, knee and hip joints - all in a fun and social setting. This class is designed specifically to help prevent falls.

Strength Training is a non-cardio workout to tone, build, and maintain your muscle strength, using weights and your core body strength.

Vinyasa Yoga   Link your breath with mindful movement in each yoga pose, building strength and endurance. You’ll improve your balance and flexibility, and gain a deeper understanding of body and breath.

Zumba®  We take 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.

Zoom Zumba®  take a Zumba class virtually over Zoom.  Features Zumba Gold on Monday, Wednesday and Friday - an introductory class with easy-to-follow choreography; and a higher intensity Zumba class on Tuesday and Thursday. 

Zumba® Gold  The design of the class introduces easy-to-follow Zumba® choreography that focuses on balance, range of motion and coordination. Come ready to sweat, and prepare to leave empowered and feeling strong.

Zumba Sentao®  combines strength and resistance training with innovative dance moves, using a chair as your dance partner. A high-intensity workout that focuses on defining your muscles, improving overall cardiovascular health, and burning major calories in the process.

Weight Room Orientation  The weight room at the rec center offers a variety of workout equipment and resources. If you are new to the facility, this is a great place to start! *Contact Guest Services to set up a private 1-on-1 weight room orientation. 303-450.8800

Aqua Zumba is a safe, effective, fun, and challenging workout that integrates Zumba dance moves and aqua fitness. You’ll dance for 60 minutes against the water - your muscles will feel the workout! Please bring a bottle of water.  Limited to 30 participants.

Arthritis Aquafit  (Ages 16+)   Go through specially-designed movements in the warm water pool to improve flexibility and relieve pain from arthritis. This class is ideal if you are just starting an exercise program, and is also a great way to meet others who are seeking control over arthritis. You don’t need to know how to swim to participate.

Our classes are taught by United States Water Fitness Association certified instructors who are motivated and excited about helping you reach your fitness goals. All fitness levels are encouraged to attend these fun and exciting classes. Instructors can work to individual needs, so stop by and get hydrocised!

Water Walking  Use the buoyancy of water and its natural resistance as you walk in the shallow section of the pool. You’ll build stamina and tone your muscles while taking it easy on the joints. You don’t need to know how to swim to participate.

SilverSneakers® SilverSplash  Activate your aqua exercise urge for variety! SilverSplash® offers fun and shallow water moves to improve agility, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance. No swimming ability is required, and a special SilverSneakers® kickboard is used to develop strength, balance and coordination.
