Upon joining our club you are guaranteed two complimentary, one-on-one personal training sessions with a Certified Personal Trainer of your choice.
One-on-one personal training sessions will be scheduled two days after each of your respective fitness evaluations. Here your trainer will discuss the results of your evaluation, personal goals, and design a unique workout routine for you to use for six weeks. The trainer will take you through every exercise. They will teach you proper form, how much weight to lift, how many sets and repetitions to complete, and how to adjust the equipment to give you the maximum results.
Pilates is a physical fitness system developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th Century. Pilates uses a system of strengthening and stretching exercises to tone muscles, increase flexibility and build core strength that serves as the support for your entire body.
Your core postural muscles help keep the body balanced and are essential to providing support for the spine. In particular, Pilates exercises teach awareness of breath and alignment of the spine, and strengthen the deep torso muscles, which are important to help alleviate and prevent back pain.
Pilates training brings the very large group of muscles in our center ﾖ encompassing our abdomen, lower back, hips, and buttocks ﾖ (the ﾓpowerhouseﾔ) into play. All energy for Pilates exercises begin from the powerhouse and flows outward to the extremities. Physical energy is exerted from the center to coordinate one's movements. A strong powerhouse will assist us in functioning in our daily lives.
Harbor Fitness offers many pilates classes with certified teachers who have fitness, dance as well as physical therapy backgrounds and experience. People with all levels are encouraged to take pilates classes. Through pilates you can build a strong core and achieve relaxation, coordination, alignment and posture, stamina and body awareness. Pilates helps to lengthen muscles and create a longer, leaner body.
The use of state of the art props in our mat classes such as magic circles, bands, tubing, stability balls and weights help to challenge in your pilates training.
To further your fitness, Harbor Fitness offers private training on the Stott ﾮ Pilates reformer, where individualized programs help you achieve a leaner, stronger body.
Yoga is about creating balance through the body through strength and flexibility. Yoga is done through the performance of poses or postures with specific physical benefits, some of which are done quickly and in succession, and some more slowly to increase stamina and perfect the alignment of the pose. The style varies based on the class, and the practice of the instructor.
If you are looking for classes that will help you find balance, clarity and build physical and mental strength, then Harbor Fitnessﾒs yoga program is for you.
Our certified yoga instructor team will give you the individual attention and motivation to insure that you achieve harmony between mind and body.
All classes are performed in a dimly lit studio designed to create an atmosphere of peace, allowing you to center yourself and achieve your greatest potential. State of the art props such as blocks, straps, stability balls and blankets are available to enhance your yoga experience.
