Fitness Classes Oakland

Have you ever joined fitness classes that made you feel like you were at an awkward middle school dance? With everyone anxiously avoiding eye contact? If you have, we are here to change that experience! We will make you feel like a guest of honor whether you’re checking us out for the first time or if you’re one of our regular visitors. Our Oakland classes are small in size so it’s easy to feel at ease with us. We encourage introductions and interactions among our students so that everyone gets a chance to know each other.

Our fitness class curriculum focuses on movement that feels fun, safe, and achievable for all fitness levels. We incorporate functional movement, core strengthening, joint stability, HIIT, TRX, stretching, and foam rolling. We welcome all bodies and believe in gratitude for what our bodies can do rather than shaming ourselves into working out because we “should”. Encouraging teachers to bring creativity and personal flavor into their classes is important to us, rather than offering boring cookie-cutter workouts. If you come to us with an open mind and a playful spirit, you’re bound to find your new favorite classes with us.

Fitness Class Descriptions

Our Oakland fitness classes aren’t cookie-cutter workouts – we like to keep our sessions fun, funky, and unique. You will still find the modalities you’re familiar with, like circuit-based training, TRX, HIIT, etc.…but some of them come with a twist. Our classes often include partner work or other group participation activities to foster a sense of community.

Check out what we have to offer:

TRX Stable & Strong

This class emphasizes building and maintaining a strong core, creating joint stability, and toning muscles that keep you balanced and powerful in all the ways you move your body.

In addition to TRX exercises, you can expect a sprinkling of techniques that keep the class fun and challenging in unique ways.

You are in control of the intensity of the workout and adjustments can be made for all fitness levels.

Stable & Strong

This class emphasizes building and maintaining a strong, stable core while toning all muscles to keep you balanced, lean, and powerful in all the ways you move your body. Expect playful and interactive exercises that foster a sense of fun.

This dynamic class is always fresh with a variety of techniques so you won’t ever get bored. The class is mostly bodyweight exercises but does sometimes include equipment. 

You are in control of the intensity of the workout and adjustments can be made for all fitness levels.

TRX

This class mixes TRX suspension training with other modalities that will get your heart rate up, your face smiling, and will leave you feeling empowered in your body! HIIT, Tabata, and other interval training styles are our favorites for this class. Expect unique programming and gamification to keep the mind as fit as your body!

Rebel Recess

“Less like bootcamp, more like recess.” Because we think workouts can be fun, but still deliver an ass-kicking.
This unique approach to fitness takes strength, agility, balance, and short burst cardio exercises and puts them to work within partner exercises, good-natured games, and other lively activities.

It is not a cookie-cutter class, so come with an open mind, a playful spirit, and a willingness to engage with other students.

This is a moderate workout.

Core Galore

Connect deeply with your core through functional movement patterns and breath-centered activation inspired by Pilates, yoga, and daily activity!

Exercises to strengthen your “core” often focus on only the abdominals but this class will incorporate your entire torso! Building strength and stability to support your spine, activate your glutes, and protect your joints while powering up your abs. Expect to be standing, kneeling, laying down, and some unusual use of props!

Exercises will be taught with an all-levels approach and include options to build or decrease intensity so that you get the best experience for your body that day.

This class lasts for 45 mins.

Props you’ll need: a yoga mat. (If you don’t have a mat, a blanket or towel will work to cushion you.)

Embodied Flow Yoga

This practice will explore what embodiment means – how can we use a yoga practice on the mat to understand body-based information and to enhance the quality of life off the mat? Come expecting to move through a sometimes vigorous, flowing sequence, exploring functional movement patterns and classic yoga postures. Leave feeling balanced, relaxed and connected to self and your yoga community!

Stretch, Roll, & Release

Taking the time to stretch and release tight muscles and explore range of motion is an important component of keeping your tissues happy. Plus it feels amazing!

We’ll take this time to move through sequences of stretches, mobility exercises, and self-myofascial release techniques that will leave you feeling longer, looser, taller, and more free in your body!

Some helpful items to bring:

  • A yoga mat
  • Foam roller
  • Massage balls or tennis balls
  • A yoga strap or belt

We have items to borrow if you don’t have your own.

This class lasts for 45 minutes.
