HEALTH & FITNESS FOR ADULTS
BARRE FITNESS CLASSES
Saturdays, 9:00 - 10:00 a.m.
Inspired by yoga, Pilates and ballet, this workout provides a unique combination of dynamic movement and isometric holds with a focus on strength, higher energy and posture. This is a low-impact workout that uses optional props (light hand weights and a core ball) and is set to a fun playlist. Dress to move, yoga pants are perfect, and bring a mat and water.
We are pleased to be able to offer Laurel’s 16,000 Square Foot Butler Fitness Center as a resource to our Laurel families as well as their friends and neighbors. Laurel’s Strength & Conditioning Coach, Dan Dvorak, will provide you with an individualized plan to help you meet your fitness goals.
