40+ Fitness

Winter 2018  (Jan. 15 – Apr. 4)

40+ Fitness is a special program designed for individuals who are close to or over 40 years of age.

After the age of 30, muscle mass begins to decrease and we often begin to realize that simple, everyday tasks like climbing stairs, running for a bus or lifting objects are becoming a bit more difficult.

40+ Fitness is designed to replace long cardio sessions with simple and manageable 40 minute modules that incorporate moderate intensity interval training in a small group setting. Replacing high-tech gym equipment, your own body is the star and focal point as body-focused training is presented utilizing simple movements and support equipment.


  • Improved neuromuscular coordination.
  • Burn more calories than cardio alone.
  • Boost metabolism by retaining or increasing muscle mass.
  • Increase functional strength.
  • Improve bone strength and combat osteoporosis.
  • Improve joint stability, flexibility and balance.
