  CIRCUIT TRAINING
FRIDAYS
8:30am -9:30am all year
Instructor Lynn Woodcroft
This class is great for all fitness levels and combines strength training and aerobics training for a total body workout. The class involves a variety of exercise stations using dumbbells, exercise ball, bands and your body’s own resistance to help increase muscular endurance and strength. The quick movement between exercises combined with cardio stations helps to keep your heart rate elevated throughout the workout burning calories the entire time. The best part is that this class is designed for each participant to work at their own pace in a controlled supervised environment.  Pay as you go $5. Sometimes this class is cancelled due to other activities. Please check the calendar on the home page at the bottom of the page or call the BCC for details.
