 “Jamie pays attention.  She pays attention to me

and my challenges, new developments in the world

of exercise and to total fitness.  Working out with

Jamie gives me strength of body, mind and spirit.

She never sacrifices one for the other.  She devotes her

energy to lifting those around her to new levels of

achievement with knowledge, personal attention,

and humor.  People tell me I’m looking good.

I say thank you Jamie.”

ALL SCHEDULES & RATES SUBJECT TO CHANGE

 

 


CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

 CORE PLUS™    Strengthen all the major muscle groups specifically, using free weights where appropriate, with emphasis on alignment, balance, core power, breath control and balanced muscle development.  

 

 CORE POWER™  Strength training for the abdominal, lower back, buttock and thigh muscles, with focus on alignment, flexibility, and balance.    

 

 CARDIO STYLES   An aerobic dance-style workout, moving to a great variety of handpicked music including latin, funk, hip hop, African, rock, pop, gospel and soul.  Unlike spinning, running, or military-style workouts, you'll find a wide directional range of movement and non-linear mind/body training. Don't knowwhat all that means?  Just ask!  The cardio is not too complicated for most people to follow; no dance background needed. Concludes with abdominal strength training and stretch.  Have fun working out!

 

STABILITY BALL  The ball provides unique opportunities to improve strength, balance, agility and coordination.  Because it is inherently unstable, we learn to recruit muscles symmetrically and dramatically improve core power and control.

 

ZUMBA  A cardio dance class using Latin music and movement styles.

 

CARDIO-MUSCULAR   Brief intervals of cardio (see above) alternating with upper body weight training.  Class concludes with abdominal strength training.    The benefits of interval training along with an excellent opportunity to become familiar with cardio dance in shorter segments. 

Text Box:  “Jamie has motivated me, entertained me, and taught
me more in one year than I had learned in ten.” 
– Miranda Book, 
Harper-Collins 

JAZZ-FUNK-HIPHOP  Warm-up, stretch, brief abdominal training, then the choreography is taught step by step.  By the end of class, you’re dancing the whole combination.  Emphasis on fun.

 

STRETCH/ALIGNMENT  Loosen joints, lengthen muscles, release tension, improve posture, develop awareness and control of breath.  By identifying the physical habits that create problems for you, you can move toward less physical restriction and a body that looks and feels better.  Relax, refresh, enjoy.

 

MONDAY NIGHT DANCE (a.k.a. DANCE BREAK)  Kick-start your week!  Hip hop, salsa, lyrical jazz, gospel, funk -- lots of dance and music styles.  Short sequences of choregraphy, different every week.  Wear dance footwear, or indoor-only sneakers, or go barefoot.  Donation-based class.

 

ALL CLASSES ARE ONE HOUR UNLESS OTHERWISE INDICATED   MEN & WOMEN WELCOME  •  MOST LEVELS WELCOME

 

 

 

• ABOUT THE TECHNIQUE

 

Appearance, functional ability, and well-being are improved byText Box: “Jamie is on the cutting edge at the same time as she refrains from the merely faddish...”
– Virginia Tiger, PhD increasing muscle strength and tone, developing flexibility and improving alignment and balance.  By increasing kinesthetic awareness – our sense of what’s taking place in our bodies at each moment, in each specific area – we vastly improve our ability to make conscious choices about how we sit, stand, move, live.  Emphasis on core strength, breath control, and kinesthetic awareness leads to greater agility, grace and power.
