Greetings Lawrence Members!  Below is our October Group Fitness news. 
Please make sure to follow our facebook page for ongoing updates too!

Welcome to Fall! The temps are dropping along with the leaves - so why not use the change in weather to come check out our new classes & some of the new faces we have at our clubs!

North Location News

NEW CLASSES:
We now have Group Power on Mondays & Wednesday 4:30PM for teachers & moms & those who want to get in their Hour of Power BEFORE dinner - we hope you like this new POWERful option!

Friday nights - do you want to relax or get your groove on? At Genesis North - we have you covered for both!

4:30PM new yogi Kim (she’s only new to us - she is working on her 500 hour yoga card!) will help you unwind & de-stress with a lovely Gentle Yoga class.

5:30PM Friday Night Zumba Dance Party with Gwen - come shake it off & get your groove on with the amazing Gwen. She may be nearly 6 months pregnant but she can still move like no other! Come to the party & try to keep up! =0)

Sunday - a few new options to make the most of your day “off”:

10AM Power Yoga Express with Karen - if you already love Karen’s Yoga Flow 75, why not challenge yourself with an added 30 minutes of strength & power on the mat. Come for just 30 - or stay for all 105 minutes of bendtastic fun! 

12PM Group Kick with Sarah & Melisa (they alternate) - before the Football Games begin, come get your kick on & sweat off your Saturday night. High or low impact - this cardio punch is great for everyone!

4PM Tabata - wanna’ train with intervals but don’t have much time? Come check out Heather’s take on Tabata - 30 minutes of super Sunday fun

4:30PM Group Power - if you come for Tabata, why not stick around for Group Power? Heather will cruise through the workout & tackle every muscle before the Sunday Night game begins.

New Instructors

Lauren Link comes to us on the verge of receiving her 200 hr RYT card - meaning she is just 8 classes away from accomplishing 200 hours of study in Yoga! She is taking over the 10:15AM Yoga Basics class on Tuesdays and will hopefully be testing the waters in some cycle classes too!

Jessica Feldman is our newest high energy Zumba instructor - take one class from this Colorado transplant & you’ll be asking me to put her on schedule more often! She is fun & spunky - you would never believe she is the mom of 5 boys. How she mom-ages 5 boys and has the energy to rock the Zumba floor I do not know - but she does! She is teaching Wednesday 10:30AM Aqua Zumba starting 10/1 & will be filling in as needed until a class becomes available (she has already agreed to helm the Friday Night 5:30PM Zumba Dance Party after Gwen goes on maternity leave - but not a moment before!

Kim Deroulette is another new yogi - new to us but working on her 500 hour card (mentioned above) - she is easing you in to the weekend with a 4:30PM Friday night Gentle Yoga class & filling in elsewhere as her schedule allows. She is a wonderful instructor - mark your calendar & get to know our latest yoga addition.

 

South Location News

Group Centergy is now offered on Monday & Wednesday afternoons 4:20-5:20pm. Cristal & Marianne are dancing you through the Centergy workout - a wonderful mix of yoga & Pilates - standing & on the floor. A fantastic alternative for those  who want to stretch, strengthen & relax before heading home for family dinner.

As the weather cools, it’s time to put your bikes in the garage & head back to the cycle studio! We have two new classes for you to keep your wheels spinning:
Group Ride Tuesdays 5:30PM with Marianne & Thursday 5:30PM with Pam - these classes compliment our Monday & Wednesday G-Cycle so you can “spin” 5:30-6:30PM Monday through Thursday!

Sunday we adjusted our line-up just a bit - we now have Group Ride at 9AM & Group Power at 10AM. Come for 2 full hours of Sunday morning sweat if you can!

Despite the renovations at North & the continued construction at South, we hope you continue to make fitness a priority & join us in one or many of our wonderful classes. We have a great team of instructors excited to meet you & help you fall in love with our classes. Group exercise is a wonderful way to make fitness a steady part of your daily routine - so pick up a schedule, mark your calendars & come to class! Just allow a little extra time due to construction / traffic so you can make it to class on time. Running late? It’s fine  - come to class anyway! We want to see you in our classes & having a great time.

For any questions or concerns about our classes or schedule please don't hesitate to contact me!
