See What Participants Have to Say:

“Circuit training has been a great full body workout (and an awesome stress release!) for me for several years now at the Y. Not only have the classes been challenging, but the instructors (and I’ve had all of them!) have been very good, knowledgeable and motivating.  Their suggestions for alternate ways of doing the exercises (depending on each person’s physical limitations, old injuries, etc.) and emphasizing correct posture and form to prevent injuries and get the most out of the workouts have been most appreciated as well as the thorough cool down stretches at the end.  The comradeship that I have been able to develop with my fellow workout group has also been most enjoyable.” – Maria, Class Participant

“Working out and trying to do cardio on the treadmill/elliptical on my own just wasn’t producing the results that I wanted, so I started doing the lunchtime Circuit-Training class, and after a few weeks, I was starting to see my body toning up the way I had wanted it to all along. The accountability within the class is great and it keeps me coming back every week.” Sheree, Class Participant
