Strength and Conditioning Classes

metabolic conditioning drills and strength-building movements to ramp up energy expenditure
and stimulate muscle growth.

Faculty/Staff Fitness: This is a group fitness class specifically offered and tailored to
Faculty/Staff at UW. It provides an opportunity to improve overall health, increase
confidence, work toward achieving fitness goals, learn proper movement mechanics and build
community support in a fun and motivating environment separated from the student body.
Our mission is to focus on creating a safe and enjoyable exercise environment for our
participants.

TRX® Circuit Training: Taught in the Elevation Studio, this class will utilize TRX® Suspension Trainers in combination with other equipment to provide a solid strength and conditioning workout to improve health and performance.


Dance Classes

Zumba®: Zumba comes from the Colombian word meaning “to move fast and have fun.”
This high-energy class combines Latin dance moves with an aerobic and cardio-focused flair
to ensure a great workout and a great time. All levels welcome!

Lindy Hop!: This is a partner-based social dance class that teaches the fundamentals of Lindy
Hop, a historical jazz swing dance from the 1930’s. It is being offered in a progressive series
of classes, each 3-weeks long. Prior registration for each series is required. Attending with a
partner is not required; the practice of rotating partners will be implemented to give
everyone the chance to practice the skills of leading and following.


Cycling Classes

Morning/Lunch Break/Evening Cycling: Cycling is a great way to enjoy an exercise session with friends, increase your cardiorespiratory fitness level and burn calories at the same time. Come enjoy the ride!

Strong Cycle: This class starts off with a 20 minute bike ride to rev-up your metabolic engine
then moves into the Group Exercise Studio for a strength and conditioning finisher. A perfect
blend of cardio and strength training, this class will be sure to increase your overall fitness!
