Fitness Classes

Dance2BFit
Come experience a great workout through dance formatted moves, instructed by Charla, this “Dance2BFit” class is packed full of energizing, upbeat music! This “Dance2BFit” class is approximately 60 minutes. The class starts with slower moves and progressively picking up the beat and moves to challenge your body and improve your heart, lungs and circulatory system. There are days that I will take you through strength exercises. I use several different methods such as weights and bands, or even your own body. All are beneficial to the large and small muscle groups of the body. Be prepared to possibly go to the floor with a matt and go through stretching movements, improving the joints, ligaments and range of motion.
Mondays & Wednesdays – 9:00am
First Class is FREE!
Universal Tickets $7.00 single or Book of 8 $52.00.
Evening Water Aerobics

Debbie Wolchek has been teaching water aerobics at the Grand Valley Recreation Center since 2007. She was certified through a training program out of Longmont, Colorado. Her workouts include music spanning several decades (from the 40s to the present), and uses pool dumbbells and noodles as part of the 60-minute workout.
Here are just a few benefits of Water Aerobics:
Low to no impact on joints; excellent for cardiovascular stamina; strength training; burns body fat; increases circulation; rehabilitation for muscles and joints; reduce stress; sleep better at night; water creates a “built-in” resistance that increases the intensity of your workout and challenges muscles that are harder to engage on land; move your body through a wider range of motion due to less gravity, which improves flexibility; water workouts reduces the pressure on your back and knees (perfect for pregnant women); and it’s also a great opportunity to meet new people! The class is fun for all ages!

You will need to wear a bathing suit and bring your own towel.
