Unlimited Yoga offers access to a variety of yoga classes taught by Registered Yoga Teachers.

Water Exercise

FREE! Water Exercise Classes offer an excellent opportunity for muscle toning and body sculpting.

Water also cools the body during exercise, which reduces stress on the heart and reduces the risk of injury by lessening the impact on weight-bearing joints, muscles, and bones.

All Water Exercise Classes are included in your Membership.

Get stronger, leaner, and healthier.

Strength training is an important part of an overall fitness program. It can help you manage or lose weight, and it can increase your metabolism to help you burn more calories.

Strength training may enhance your quality of life and improve your ability to do everyday activities. Strength training can also protect your joints from injury.
