Specialty Classes

Specialty Classes are offered periodically throughout the year, normally running anywhere between five and twelve weeks, with recurring days and times during the cycle.  These classes allow for a specific focus on one area of fitness in order to quickly improve and excel in a shortened period of time.  Each class is run by one of our expert Coaches with programming and an approach that is tailored to each individual in a smaller class environment.
