Group Fitness

We offer several different group fitness class styles. Prior to class make sure you register through our Recreation Portal. Instructors are trained to give exercise modifications so that beginners and regular exercises are challenged appropriately. Beacon Total Body, pilates, yoga, and cardio kickboxing are some of our great offerings.
