Course Overview

Body Conditioning is a total body, music-based, Non dancing, group fitness class

The focus is on functional fitness, strength, mobility and balance exercises.

Perfect for anyone NOT a “dance class fan" or who wants to compliment their cardiovascular workouts with a Body Conditioning workout.
