Attend a Group Fitness Class
Stretch and tone is a low-impact, low-intensity workout that tones muscles, increases flexibility and helps to relieve stress. There are two sessions. The first one meets on Mondays and Saturdays, 9-10 a.m. The other session meets on Tuesday and Thursdays, 8-9 a.m. Both sessions meet at the Palazzo. In this class you’ll do a series of exercises that combines cardio and weights to target specific muscle groups and build core strength. For maximum results participants should bring a set of dumbbells and a mat to class. Class size is limited to 10 people.
