Why small group training? Ever been in that classroom where nobody knows your name? Or leave a classroom so full of clients that the teacher didn't notice you were doing the exercise wrong...and now you're paying for it? Do you often find yourself making your grocery list while you're working with your personal trainer? Not here.

At Star Pilates and Fitness we host small group sessions dedicated to intense functional training to keep you motivated, engaged, informed and having fun doing it. Functional training helps provide you with strength, stability, power, mobility, endurance and flexibility that you need to thrive as you move through your life and sports. You use basic functional movement patterns like pushing, pulling, hinging, squatting, rotating, carrying, and gait patterns every day. Functional training utilizes exercises that improve your movement proficiency in these primary patterns to give you an edge and enhance your performance so you can achieve goals safely and with good health. Check out our small group classes for a complete mind/body experience- dedicated to your fitness needs while keeping costs down, ensuring safety, and always having fun. 

Personal training and semi private training is also available for all abilities.

REFORMER CLASSES

BARRE

Star Barre

This class is a one hour plan designed to deliver a balanced, total-body workout that you can do anytime, anywhere. All movements are low impact and designed to burn fat, build muscle and break through plateaus. It is a combination of several things: isometric holds, small movements within the hold and large dynamic movement. Isometric holds work your muscles to their deepest points and increase strength and endurance, as well as give you the time to find the perfect posture in the position for maximum benefit. Layering in the small movements, think one inch, creates relief in the muscles to maintain the integrity of the posture while heating the body, increasing core strength, and revving up the metabolism. After exhausting the muscles through these small movements and holds, we flush out the body with functional, large, dynamic moves which lifts the heart rate, improves circulation and mobility and energizes the body. 

Anyone can do this low impact sequence and see dramatic results. All ages and all fitness levels are welcome. We can work with injuries and even pregnancies. Barre classes can help anyone build strength, lose weight, and transform your entire body. 

SPIN

Star Spin

Invigorating music and choreographed cycling come together to make this spinning class super fun and totally effective. Regardless of how fit, flexible or coordinated you are, you'll get a great cardio vascular workout complimented with upper body strength training as well as constant core work. While there is lots of variety and some choreography in this spin class, the lights are dim and the bikes are equipped with resistance knobs controlled by the rider- so you can really take this ride wherever YOU want to go. Be prepared to sweat and smile on this dance party ride.

  

TRX

The TRX Suspension Trainer is the original, best-in-class workout system that leverages gravity and your bodyweight to perform hundreds of exercises. You're in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise,  because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance. 

The TRX Suspension Trainer:

  • delivers a fast, effective total-body workout
  • helps build a rock solid core
  • increases muscular endurance
  • benefits people of all fitness levels (even seniors!)
  • can be set up anywhere

The TRX Suspension Trainer is used by trainers, athletes, and the US military. Come check it out! The class is led to fun music and allows each individual client to take their workout wherever they want to go. 

YOGA

Yoga is a practical aid, not a religion. It is an ancient art based on harmonizing system of development for the body, mind, and spirit. The continued practice of yoga will lead you to a sense of peace and well-being, and also a feeling of being at one with their environment. This is a simple definition.  The practice of yoga makes the body strong and flexible, it also improves the functioning of the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, and hormonal systems. Yoga will also bring about emotional stability and clarity of mind. Suitable for all ages, body types, and fitness levels- everyone can find something unique to them within the practice of yoga. 

Star Flow Yoga

This class will move through a series of sun salutations to invigorate the body and build internal heat allowing the participant the ability to move into deeper postures including twists, arm balances, core building and back bends. Some flow, or vinyasa yoga is recommended, but not necessary. Expect to learn classic yoga postures through deep awareness of correct alignment within your body. The foundation of all yoga comes from core strength and breath, and this class does not disappoint.  This class is led to music and encourages the participant to let go into the movement and the beat. 

YOGA burn (coming soon!)

Combines classic yoga postures with dynamic strength training, creating a powerful mind-body workout. Traditional yoga movements are blended with fun props to enhance strength, mobility and balance. This will deepen your yoga practice and support your strength training needs. You'll find anything from small isometric movements to cardio bursts with weights. Lead with music. No previous yoga experience required. Just a willingness to sweat!

PILATES MAT

Pilates is a system of controlled exercises that engage the mind and condition the total body. The blend of strength and flexibility training improves posture, reduces stress and creates long, lean muscles without bulking up. Pilates takes a balanced approach so that no muscle group is overworked and the body moves as an efficient, holistic system in sport and daily activity. 

Pilates Mat will certainly be a traditional pilates mat class, several repetitions of core strengthening exercises and isometric work for the whole body, but with an untraditional approach. Think music, rhythmic movement, various props, and eek...even sweating!   

Look for pilates mat classes soon!
