Class Descriptions:

DaVINCI BODY BOARD/BARRE SCULPT: Barre inspired moves on the body board! We do both barre and body board moves and combine them. It's a full body workout. It's super fun and challenging. It's non-impact and targets all major muscle groups, sculpting arms, flat abs, a lifted seat, and elongated thighs.

CORE: Non-stop core aimed to tone, tighten, and condition your body towards next level fitness. Core work in this class aims to train to abdominals, obliques, and glute muscles to ensure strength and balance throughout 360 degrees of the core muscles. Core will not only improve physique, but also athletic performance and lower back health.

BODYVIVE® 3.1: features the optimal mix of strength, cardio and core training. As a 45 minute class, this is a great cross training option for busy people on the go!

BODYFLOWTM: the Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates workout that builds flexibility and strength and leaves you feeling centered and calm. Controlled breathing, concentration and a carefully structured series of stretches, moves and poses to music create a holistic workout that brings the body into a state of harmony and balance.

GENTLE YOGA: This class is designed for beginner through intermediate practitioners. You'll be guided through asanas (yoga postures) linked to breath, beginning with the basic poses, with an introduction to more intermediate poses for those seeking to develop a broader practice. Participants looking for a more gentle experience, those who are new to yoga or those who need a change of pace, while still having the option to take it to the next level, will find this class accessible. Also the perfect class for employees with injuries or limitations.

WalkFIT: Intervals of walk/run on The Edge indoor track with total body strength training. We use weights (1#-20#), resistance bands, balls and our body weight to gain strength, endurance and flexibility. A great way to start most any day! This class is held at The Edge on Eastwood Terrace, South Burlington.

HIIT: 30 minute High Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T.) class. Combining some loaded strength exercises with some body weight exercises. Give your all-out effort for 30 minutes and enjoy the EPOC (Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption) effect of more fat and calories burned throughout the day than regular steady-state, aerobic exercise

PURE BARRE: A new studio located in the Blue Mall on Dorset Street. Pure Barre is the fastest, most effective, yet safest way to change your body. Pure Barre lifts your seat, tones your thighs, abs, and arms and burns fat in record time. Discover the workout that is transforming bodies nationwide.

FITNESS FOR ALL: A workout for anyone. This class is for total body strengthening and cardiovascular fitness. Every exercise can be tailored to fit your fitness journey. The class will include some bodyweight, some high intensity and some light dumbbell work.

JAZZERCIZE: You want to be fit. You want that look good, feel great, got-my-stride-on-and-you-love-it confidence. Jazzercize is a workout that incinerates up to 800cph (that's calories per hour). It's a calorie-torching workout with lots of classes to choose from-Strike, Fusion, Core, Strength and Dance Mixx. Expect to feel results after 3 classes.

BODYPUMPTM: the original LES MILLSTM barbell class, will sculpt, tone and strengthen your entire body, fast! The proven BODYPUMPTM formula: THE REP EFFECTTM, is a breakthrough in resistance workout training. Focusing on low weight loads and high repetition movements, you'll burn fat, gain strength and quickly produce lean body muscle conditioning. NOTE: This class can also be taken with no weights, making it ideal for all fitness and ability levels!


SGT's offer the benefits of Personal Training with the motivation of a small group and a lower fee per session.

Do you want individualized feedback on your health goals and your execution of the exercises? These sessions are an effective way to address specific goals in an individualized, focused session.
