Yoga

The term “yoga” comes from a Sanskrit word meaning “union.” Yoga combines physical exercises, mental meditation, and breathing techniques to strengthen the muscles and relieve stress. Physical postures strengthen and tone muscles, and when performed in rapid succession, can provide cardiovascular conditioning. Meditation and deep breathing can reduce stress, thereby lowering blood pressure and inducing relaxation. Mind/body awareness can influence mood and self esteem to improve quality of life.

Core conditioning

The buzz word in the health and fitness
industry is core strength.  Why?  because, the core is the origin of movement.  The torso serves as the body’s base, it’s pillar, from which all movement stems.  Integrating core stabilization training provides a foundation for the generation of power from the inside out.  Since the torso initiates, assists and stabilizes movement, training the muscles to prepare for the unpredictable is the key element for body control and directional changes in day-to-day life as well as in sport. Join us for this 1hr class of pure core conditioning.

Tue – Thu: 12:10pm – 12:50pm

zumba

Grooving to the beats of salsa, flamenco, and merengue music feels more like a dance party than a workout, which is exactly what makes Zumba so popular. The Latin-inspired dance workout is one of the most popular group exercise classes in the world.

The high-energy classes are set to upbeat music and feature choreographed dance numbers that you might see in a nightclub. You don’t need to be a great dancer to feel welcome in a Zumba class. With the tag line, “Ditch the Workout, Join the Party,” the classes emphasize moving to the music and having a good time, no rhythm required.

Instructor: Liza Ramos

Fri: 6:05pm – 6:50pm

Tabata

This form of training has been tested in clinical studies through a joint effort by two medical universities. The short duration workouts were shown to burn an average of 5x more calories AFTER their exercise is over. Additionally, short burst workouts and combination with 30 and 60 minute workouts were put through a single blinded randomized study demonstrating their effectiveness in providing weight loss and fitness. “HIGHER INSTENSITY. SHORTER DURATION. POWERFUL RESULTS!”

Instructor: Liza Ramos

I came to Smithers from Hamilton Ontario and was pleasantly surprised to find a gym that offers everything you could get in a commercial gym in a big city (and then some). The staff is always friendly, the gym is rarely crowded, the facilities are clean and equipment, especially in the back room, is top notch. Keep it up guys”
