Fitness Class Descriptions

Barre Fit  
Barre Fit is one of the most effective ways to change the shape of your body. Using isometric movements that combine Pilates, strength training, and Yoga, coupled with ballet barre flexibility routine, Barre Fit targets all major muscle groups for an invigorating total body workout. Barre Fit Classes use deliberate strength and stretching techniques to reshape bodies and challenge even the strongest of athletes. The overall promise is to create long and lean muscles without bulk. This hour-long class is a rigorous, fast-paced sculpting class integrating the use of the ballet Barre, light weights, bands, and balls with some Yoga flow sequencing and stretching. Classes are held in the Fran Russ Recreation Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. Tokens must be purchased from the Park Office prior to attending class. One token per class.   

Boot Camp
A specialized program designed to offer a variety of exercise intensity levels to meet the needs of individuals. You get the benefit of having a group fitness instructor as well as a professional personal fitness trainer at a fraction of the cost. Classes are held outdoors at the basketball courts in Wrightsville Beach Park (in the event of inclement weather, the class meets in the Recreation Center). This class meets each Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 - 7:00 a.m. Tokens must be purchased from the Park Office prior to attending class. One token per class.

**Tone, Strengthen & Stretch

Yoga - Gentle (Hatha)
If you need to stretch, strengthen, relax, and smile, you should try Gentle Yoga. Gentle Yoga focuses on gentle movements and relaxation, and is suitable for all fitness levels.
