Fitness Classes

Join our classes lead by some of the best fitness trainers in the industry to help you burn calories, lose weight, and build yourself.

Morning Stretch

30-Minute Stretch class designed to increase circulation and wake up your body and muscles in preparation for the morning hike and the rest of your day. You will need your mat and strap, but the class may also use foam rollers and other implements.

Yoga Stretch

Restorative flexibility and stretching using traditional yoga-based stretch postures.

Stretch

Restorative flexibility class using static stretching and light dynamic or ballistic stretching. May include stretch-assisting implements like yoga strap, blocks, and foam rollers.

Mobility

Mobility focuses on combining range of motion with balance, coordination, and stability. We also address the issues with muscle balance and focus on corrective movement strategies and practices bringing the body into balance. This class uses foam rollers, lacrosse balls, straps, and blocks.

Mountain

Select the cardio machine of your choice! Mountain increases aerobic conditioning and cardio-pulmonary efficiency by increasing intensity and your heart rate, primarily through resistance and/or incline.

Cardio Intervals

Select the cardio machine of your choice! Cardio Intervals increases aerobic conditioning and cardio-pulmonary efficiency by increasing intensity and your heart rate through a series of specifically timed intervals at varying speeds and/or resistance levels.

Treading

Select the cardio machine of your choice! Initially designed as a treadmill-specific workout, but can be adapted to any cardio machine. Treading increases aerobic conditioning and cardio-pulmonary efficiency by increasing intensity and your heart rate through a series of specifically timed intervals at varying speeds and/or resistance levels.

Cinco Speed

Select the cardio machine of your choice! Cinco gets its name because we work in 5-minute intervals, where each 5-minute block is approached as its own distinct workout. Placed at the end of the week, Cinco is designed to push you further with higher intensities, and guarantees that you will leave the class having done more than you thought physically possible.

Pool Classes

Each pool class is different depending on which instructor is teaching. Pool classes use equipment like aqua-bells, noodles, and body weight to increase your heart rate, build muscle, increase joint range of motion, and burn calories in a low-impact environment. Work in the pool is a popular alternative activity for many guests with joint pain or movement limitations.

AMRAP

AMRAP is an acronym that stands for “As Many Rounds/Reps As Possible”! You will complete as much exercise as possible, ensuring a great muscle building and calorie burning workout regardless of current fitness level. The format changes weekly but always includes total-body functional movements using equipment like dumbbells, medicine balls, weight bars, fitness balls, bands, and more.

Bootcamp

Bootcamp traditionally focuses on higher-rep, lower-weight, or bodyweight functional movements. Because the focus is on increased reps, muscle fatigue and “burn” requires the workout to be as much mental as it is physical.

Body Blast

The Body-Blast format changes each week but is a total-body workout that uses a number of different pieces of equipment, isolating individual muscle groups that let you see where your strengths and weaknesses are, as well as any imbalances.

TRX

A suspension training class guaranteed to challenge anyone! Suspension training takes traditionally “closed-chain”, or more stable exercises, and makes them “open-chain” exercises that require the body to stabilize itself through the exercise’s range of motion. Each exercise can be altered making it more difficult or easier simply by changing the angle of the body.

Circuit

Circuit has been the foundational fitness class at Movara since the beginning. It’s a hybrid class combining strength and cardio workouts where you will be coached through a series of two-minute working sets alternating between cardio machines and pin-selected weight machines.

Pilates

Mat based Pilates focuses on strength, stability, posture, proper breath control and flexibility. Each class will work to balance strength and flexibility for all muscle groups, with an emphasis on challenging the core muscles with each movement. Classes will be taught using slow, controlled movements. Movara also has small group and private Pilates Reformer classes upon request.

Core

Strength-based class combining isometric and small controlled movements that isolate the core musculature with an emphasis on breathing to control blood pressure spikes.

Hip Hop

Dance-based cardio class designed for fun while burning calories and increasing motor control, balance and coordination; all set to contemporary hip hop and pop music.

Zumba

Latin dance-based cardio class designed for fun while burning calories and increasing motor control, balance and coordination; set to contemporary Latin and pop music.

Barre

Barre is a progressively rigorous workout that blends elements from different exercise styles including ballet, pilates, and yoga. Movara’s barre class welcomes first-timers as well as seasoned practitioners. Get ready to feel muscles you didn’t know you had!

Last Blast

Last Blast is offered once a week as the last class on the weekly schedule. It is a 90-minute class divided into three consecutive 30-minute blocks. The first 30 minutes focuses on cardio training in the gym. The second 30 minutes is in the court, with a focus on strength, and the final 30 is flexibility work. Whether you’re staying over or heading home, there’s no better way to head into the weekend!
