About Our Exercise Classes 

Our classes are a “pay as you go” option. This way if you miss a class, you are not paying for a class. Sometimes an unexpected situation occurs that will prevent you from attending. “Pay as you go” is a great feature when this happens! We offer a 6-class punch card if anyone is interested!
