It is with such sadness but out of great concern for everyone’s safety that the Town of Wrightsville Beach Parks and Recreation Department must cancel all of our programs and suspend our fitness classes and open pickleball play until further notice.  We look forward to resuming our programming as conditions allow.  Whether or not we resume activities is dependent upon state and local restrictions as they pertain to COVID-19 as well as recommendations from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.   In the meantime, stay well and we hope to see you soon!  

If you have any questions, please contact Katie Ryan, Recreation Program Supervisor, via email or call 910-256-7925.  

Locals and visitors are welcome. No membership is required but please bring your own mat, all other equipment is provided.  Instructors are experienced, certified professionals providing participants with quality program instruction and challenging workouts.

Barre Athletica

Barre Athletica is a barre method class created with the athlete in mind.  In this this 50 minute class, we utilize 6 primal movements in our Strength and Resistance training, the squat/lunge/push/pull/bend/twist and we cross-train these big Strength moves with the smaller, precise Endurance movements of barre work. Classes include a fun fusion of Yoga and Pilates, instilled for increased Pelvic Core Strength and Stability, Strength, Flexibility and Mobility of the Spine, Shoulders, Hips and Ankles, in conjunction with promoting and enhancing a greater mindbody connection over time. We tax the muscles to the point of fatigue with emphasis on stellar posture, correct alignment for YOUR body, proper execution of each exercise and stretch, to guarantee the most benefit. Encompassing the principles of a dancer’s lifted and braced form, intense focus, and meticulous execution; It’s all about control over your body here. Being able to move one part while isolating another, all with grace of a dancer.  This class is demanding, even for the strongest client. The structure and many of the exercises are made to be challenging, yet accessible and modifiable, for almost everyone. It’s not just hard because of what we do in class.
