Bellyfit® hits all the bases

Combining cardio, yoga-inspired stretching, and a pilates-inspired core abdominal sequence, Bellyfit provides you with a workout that hits all the bases.

Multi-level options are given so that you can choose a low, moderate or high impact workout. Fantastic world beat music will inspire you to move. You’ll leave feeling strong, stretched and centered.

Bellyfit is a holistic fitness program that provides you with an hour to not only work out, but also to utilize mindful awareness practices to minimize stress. Come to a class and find out why Bellyfit is the fastest growing women’s-only fitness program today.

New this year is Bellyfit Sage, the low impact fitness program for the wise and mature woman, of any age, that wants to move at a slower pace, and may have special fitness considerations.

The cardio portion is 100 per cent low impact, with moves drawn from hula, bellydance and yoga, and the stretch and strength portion of program is done entirely on a chair for support.

Bellyfit Sage for women will be offered on Monday mornings from 9 to 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 20 to Nov. 24 in the Jack Goddard Memorial Viewing room.

Bellyfit will be offered on Wednesday Evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 22 to Nov. 26. Registration fee for six classes is just $47.25. Registration deadline for both sessions is Tuesday, Oct. 14.
