Every person is an athlete, and so are you! This class includes a warmup, full body strength and cardio workout and cool down. All movements can be scaled for any level athlete.
Strong + United
Skip the cardio and feel the burn. Learn to deadlift, squat and bench with the guidance of a coach, while moving at your own pace. This class is programmed 1 month at a time so you have the chance to get to know the moves of the month and improve your technique and confidence. Join any time!
Wise + United (60+)
Wise + United was named by our participants and is our 60+ group fitness class. We focus on mobility, coordination, balance, strength, and cardio, listen to good tunes and have a laugh. This group has a variety of participants and we make sure that all injuries are accommodated for so everyone is always doing what makes sense for their body on any given day.
Kettlebell Skills + Strength
We love kettlebells but they are often misunderstood. This class will always include an intro to kettlebell skills and a progression to more advanced movements. Expect a mobility warmup, to learn and practice some kettlebell technique, and THEN get a solid full body workout using the skills you've practiced that day. Beginners sometimes benefit from wearing sweat bands to protect their wrists as they learn some new technical movements- if you've got some, bring 'em in your gym bag. Beginners are welcome, however, please consult our staff if you have back problems before attending this class.
The Comox Valley Kettlebell Club practices and competes at Kettlebell Sport (that's right, time to go google that!). These classes are our team practices and a great place for you to go after you've got basic kettlebell skills such as the kettlebell swing. You don't need to compete to join these sessions, we love it when friends pop in to check out what the team is about. Expect a more relaxed atmosphere, to learn A LOT, and to practice your kettlebell snatch and clean & jerk. Beginners sometimes benefit from wearing sweat bands to protect their wrists as they learn some new technical movements- if you've got some, bring 'em in your gym bag.
If you haven't heard, our gym manager Steph is the master of mobility! Mobility Training is an awesome complement to strength training and our other classes. If yoga isn't your bag, this is a great alternative option to get a stretch in!
