Staying Young & Active: High + Low

Course Overview

SY&A is a Group Fitness, total body, music-based, aerobic dance and strength workout!

Music used in this class, has been specifically designed for this group fitness course, so expect a combination of disco, pop, rock, and some timeless oldies.

The first 30 minutes is your cardiovascular workout. A choreographed dance routine with grapevines, pivots, easy walks and Step knees amongst other moves. 

The second 30 minutes is split between strength training with hand weights, and mat work ( lying on the floor ) for body strength exercises and core. End the hour with stretches. 

Please Note: this course is designed for the more ACTIVE students.

About the tutor

Marion Claridge

Hi, I am Marion!I have been teaching Group Fitness exercise classes at the NSCC since 2007. As a qualified 'freestyle' exercise instructor, I have more freedom to design choreography and choose music that suits the class. Whether you have been attending my classes for years or are a new student, you will always find my classes to be friendly, encouraging, and a lot of fun, with plenty of laughter along the way.
