Cycling

Find out why indoor cycling, or spin, has become a nationwide phenomenon. We’ll fit you to your bike and guide you on a journey with music timed to your ride. On the ride, you’ll scale hills, go all out with short sprints, and we guarantee you’ll sweat. No prior biking experience is necessary, but after a few classes you may well want to hit the road or trail on two wheels!

Endurance ride: 60 Minutes of hills and sprint work.

Ride & Row (R&R)

Combining the sports of cycling and rowing adds a necessary component of cross-training to your workout regimen. The format will vary, whether it’s 30 min. on each or a Ride/Row/Ride, to ensure that members are challenged and engaged in their ultimate goal of continual progression- not plateauing!

Shockwave

This circuit-training class maximizes workout time by incorporating different types of stations that target major muscle groups using the Indo-Rowers as a base for cardio and different types of exercises/equipment that strengthen the arms, core, and legs.

Triple Threat

Are you ready for the Triple Threat? Based on High Intensity Interval Training principles, with sets ranging from 1-1.5 minutes, working within 5 different modalities, the distinguishing factor in this workout is the varying combination of these apparati: TRX, RIP Trainer, ViPRs, and Kettlebells.

Core Fusion

Part yoga, part Pilates- part mind/body, part core. Stretch, sculpt, lengthen, and breathe- this is an essential component to anyone’s fitness.

Field Day

Remember field day? Fun, friendly team competitions that will stymie that sense of purpose and motivation, and remind you that total-body workouts come in many forms- obstacle courses, relays, FUN….

Recess

Leave the doldrums of the office behind- come create chaos and play for an hour! Monkey bars, wall ball, races- expect anything and everything in this workout that will leave you happily exhausted and ready for happy hour.  See Recess on King 5′s New Day NW

Kettlebell Conditioning

This class touches on all aspects of strengthening and conditioning- slow, heavy lifting and metabolic circuits and new skills, with the ever-versatile kettlebell- the exercises and equipment used will continually vary and keep you on your toes!

ViPR

ViPR = Vitality, Performance and Reconditioning. These are three modalities of goal-based programming that can exist independently or all together- we strive for balance in our daily lives, the same should apply to our workouts. ViPR is a rubber, tubular-shaped piece of equipment providing a wide array of potential movements and exercises actualizing functional movement, which fosters purposeful motion and blends traditional strength training movement together.

TRX

TRX is suspension training using your own body weight to develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously.  A TRX workout is an effective total-body workout and benefits people of all fitness levels.

Tabata

Four words: High Intensity Interval Training. This 45-minute class will vary between strengthening and cardio formats, but will be 100% anaerobic every time. Your body weight will never feel harder to utilize than during the exercises done in 20 second intervals for 8 rounds- it’s a must-try for everyone!
