Energy Plus - Fall

(Group Fitness for the Older Adult)

Do you want to have more energy, feel stronger and be able to navigate daily life with a sense of physical confidence and greater ease?  The physical and social benefits associated with regular group physical activity are well documented.  Join us and discover how our program can improve your life and general sense of well-being!

This is a comprehensive program designed to improve your aerobic conditioning, muscle strength and endurance, balance and co-ordination, flexibility and posture – but most of all we like to have FUN!  Our sessional pass enables you to attend any class in the ENERGY PLUS schedule, thereby customizing a program suitable to your physical abilities and preferences.

Classes are listed as Level 1, Level 2* or All Levels.  Level 1 is suitable for the beginner participant or anyone who may be experiencing health issues or limitations.  Level 2 is for the advanced participant who has at least 6 months experience in the program and is not experiencing any significant physical limitations or issues.  All Levels (as the name implies) is suitable for everyone.

(*Although intensity options will be given in all classes, the Level 2 classes are geared specifically to the advanced participant and the aerobic segment of this class will be longer in duration and more advanced in intensity.)

It is recommended that the first-time participant check with their doctor before participating in an exercise program.

Step Mix (Level 2): This class is for those looking for a more advanced cardio experience and to challenge balance and co-ordination in a new way! Each class will contain a step aerobics component “mixed” in with some interval training low impact aerobics and muscle conditioning. Every week will be a little different form the week before. This is not a beginner class. (Please check with Nancy to determine your suitability for this class).

Aerobics: These classes will be taught in a multi-level fashion. Exercise options will be given to those who wish to work at a higher (or lower) intensity. Classes will consist of approximately 20-25 minutes of aerobics with a segment of muscle toning and/or core conditioning and strength.

MSE & Ball: MSE stands for Muscle Strength and Endurance. The emphasis here is on improving muscle strength and endurance through the use of weights, body bars, elastics and stability balls. The stability ball will be used to improve balance, posture, coordination, strength and endurance. If you want stronger abdominal and back muscles, visit this fun and dynamic class!

Basic Aerobics: Similar to the Aerobics class (above), with an aerobic segment approximately 15-20 minutes induration. If you want an aerobics class that is low to moderate intensity, this class may be suitable for you.

All Stretch: Did you know strength and flexibility go hand in hand? This class is dedicated to improve flexibility releasing stress and developing better posture and body awareness.

Cardio Mix (level 2): This class will be different from week to week, with the main emphasis on cardio. It will include low impact step circuit and low and tone. We’ll mix it up every Friday and you will get a cardiovascular workout every class. We’ll also use weights, stability balls, bands and body bars. Come prepared to sweat and challenge yourself. (Please note this is not a beginner class)

Friday Variety (Level 1): This level one class is suited for beginners or for those wishing for a lighter workout at the end of the week. The class format will change from week to week to provide a “variety” of class formats. Several of our instructors will instruct the class on a “rotation” basis. A scheduled class format will be available September.
