Cycling- Anna Carlson and Lynn Patterson
This class is composed of a 45-55 minute cardio session of cycling to upbeat, fun and motivating music that also includes some strength training in the process. There will be various maneuvers to increase the intensity overtime and to make the class more challenging as participants progress. These movements target specific muscle groups and include “seated jumps”, which will be explained in class, push-ups and “one handed switch up” using the handle bars while peddling, climbing hills using as much tension and resistance as possible, and sprint intervals that entail cycling as fast as possible for determined spurts of time. This class is intended to help burn fat and increase fitness while strengthening and toning the muscles.

The graceful movements of Tai Chi may appear effortless but the health benefits garnered by those who practice this ancient Chinese martial art lead them to a state of wellbeing that may transcend what we do when we exercise in a more traditional manner. Standard forms of exercise are certainly good for you—they can lower blood pressure, release pain-blocking endorphins, and control weight among other benefits. But Tai Chi's focus on posture and body placement may add benefits beyond what cardiovascular or resistance-training can provide. It has been demonstrated to improve cardiovascular function following heart attack, reduce high blood pressure, and increase blood flow to the periphery. There have been measures of cortisol as an index of stress, to show that cortisol levels are reduced after tai chi training.
Tai Chi is rooted in the centuries-old philosophy of Taoism—where balance and energy-flow play key roles. Practitioners believe internal power is derived from a life force called "chi". Scientists have, so far, been unable to prove or disprove the existence of "chi". But in several small studies over recent years, researchers have been able to show tangible benefits from Tai Chi—most notably in populations where certain degenerative or chronic conditions are common.
