 HIGH Fitness!

Are you ready for the New Year? Do you want to get a head start? We have a new class starting next week on Thursday, December 13th. HIGH Fitness is an emerging leader in group fitness, inspiring people from all walks of life to a lifestyle of better health and overall wellness. HIGH transforms old school aerobics into a highly addictive new fitness experience that combines simple, modern fitness techniques (i.e. HIIT, plyometrics, etc.) with music you know and love. This results in a high energy, INTENSE and crazy fun workout that leaves participants feeling HIGH and wanting more.

Our formula alternates between cardio peaks and toning tracks that will take your heart rate to the sky and strength to the next level. Beyond the workout, the HIGH fitness culture embodies a lifestyle of empowering people to maximize their health and be the best version of themselves. This class is rated as a moderate to hard level of exercise.

This is a free class that will be held on Thursdays at 9:30 am at the Fitness Center.


Are you ready to get your sweat on? Melt of some serious calories with this intense cardio strength training interval combo class. Finish work and then come workout with us.

This is a FREE class that will be held on Wednesdays at 6:15 pm at the Fitness Center beginning Wednesday, January 2nd. This class is rated as a moderate to hard level of exercise.

 Body Scan Opportunity!

Would you like to measure your progress in more than just a number on a scale or how your clothes fit? Have you ever started a new workout/diet program and after weeks wondered if anything had changed at all?

Seems like fitness centers, trainers, clients, and customers alike want the same thing:

  • Precise measurement capability
  • Accurate, reproducible deliverables
  • Historical and current visualization and charting to truly track progress
  • Results accessible from any platform

How is this possible? 3D BODYSCANS offers state-of-the-art Infrared body scanning services, using the FIT3D Proscanner v4.0 (www.fit3d.com) — the most accurate 3D scanning technology in the industry. Reproducible data, coupled with compelling visualizations and historical/current comparisons provide a solid toolset to manage the journey for fitness seekers and enthusiasts. 3D scans will motivate and inspire confidence in clients from initial assessment through ongoing measurement and analysis efforts in order to track progress and success.

The Amenity Center will be offering a day where you can come and use a FIT3D Proscanner to see what your body is really composed of and what your measurements are for each area of your body. This will be the first of 6 visits that we hope to offer so that you can electronically map your progress.

Cost: $25.00

Date: January 8th from 10:00 am-7:00 pm

There will be a sign-up sheet above the drinking fountains in the Fitness Center located at 1865 North Loop Pkwy. We will provide specific instructions once you have registered. Each appointment takes approximately 15 minutes. This is a great way to truly know where you stand and how you progress in 2019.
