Harper Campus Rec Workout Descriptions
Core Strength and Stability
This workout focuses on slow and controlled barre-style and mat exercises designed to activate your glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, and deep abdominal muscles combined with stretch to strengthen your core, increase balance, improve flexibility, thereby enhancing mobility. All you need is a mat and chair. (All Levels)
Full Body Circuit Training
There is power in simplicity. If you want to get better at something, sometimes the best thing is to do it and do it often. The first portion of this workout is designed to build strength and endurance as well as induce a metabolic boost by tapping into the principal of EMOM (Every Minute on the Minute). The second portion of the workout combines qigong breath & stretch along with slow and controlled circuit-style body weight strength and balance work. (All Levels)
This non-stop powerhouse workout is guaranteed to burn calories and get your heart pumping. HIIT includes High Intensity Interval Training by combining strength exercises with cardio in short intervals. (Intermediate/Advanced)
Move, Manipulate and Meditate (formerly Body Flow)
The Power of Three, suggests that things that come in threes are more satisfying, more effective, and more memorable. We want you to move and manipulate your body through the practice of natural movements. Natural movements challenge your body to stretch, lengthen and strengthen like never before. Mindfulness and meditation techniques are utilized to enhance mental clarity and focus. No equipment necessary. (All Levels)
Pilates Cross Training
Pilates cross training is the fastest way to reshape your body and add definition. Body weight and mat based exercises strengthen the muscles, followed by more active cardio based exercises that increase your heart rate. The result is a strong graceful body, including elongated thighs, sculpted arms, flat abs, and a lifted bottom, as well as improved posture. This fast paced workout will burn plenty of calories too. (All Levels)
Synchronized poses along with breath work are sure to enhance circulation, flexibility, stamina, strength, balance and inner calm. (All Levels)
ZUMBA® is a dance-based aerobic workout featuring movements inspired by various styles of Latin American, Hip Hop and Pop dance, and is set to Latin and World rhythms. All fitness levels welcome.
