Stability Ball Challenge

 This workout has to be one of the most exciting and fast paced of all the classes.  Adding the inherently unstable surface of the ball brings an increased challenge to Pilates moves.

 Perfect for anyone looking to add a new level of challenge to their core strength and stability. Lots of fun! This workout WILL challenge your coodination and balance skills.

This class is offered Friday mornings at

9:00 - 10:00 am  Be Ready to Sweat!!

INSTRUCTOR: Leslie Gleason



This class will show you how you can tone and tighten you're whole body with this class that really makes you sweat and work every major and many smaller muscles of your body without the demanding pounding moves that many cardio classes can. You'll be working the upper body, shoulders, chest, upper back and chest with the ball for the first half of the class. These movements will also get your heart rate up and challenge your core as well.

Then moving on to the step and using a body bar, they come in many weights so the beginner will find they can keep up with the exerciese and when they have mastered the movements with the lighter bar, can move on to a heavier bar.

You'll be using the step to work the lower body, glutes, hamstrings, and calves in this class as well as the inner and outer thighs. You'll be AMAZED as how  the ball and body bar for a great way to pull in and firm your body in ways you never dreamed of! FIRM AND TONED. Give us a call!
