Please bring a personal water bottle.

When: Wednesdays at 3:00pm

Hoop Fitness

Hoop Fitness is a low-impact, full body cardio workout that can burn up to 700 calories per hour! Workouts will increase core strength, balance, coordination, posture, muscle tone and self confidence, all while having fun!

This isn't your kid's hula hoop! This class uses adult sized hula hoops that make it easier to maintain momentum while waist hooping and that will build strength while moving the hoop around the body. 

You are welcome to bring your own fitness hoop or you may borrow one from the instructor. A limited number of hoops will be available in a range of sizes on a first come, first served basis.

When: Saturdays at 9:30 am. Hoop Fitness class is cancelled on July 31.
