Bored with traditional weight training? The latest and greatest has arrived at The Center of Clayton! TRX® Suspension Training® is a revolutionary total-body fitness program that uses gravity against the individual’s own body weight to simultaneously develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability. The TRX® device is attached to an anchor point and participants are able to challenge their bodies at various joint angles to improve flexibility, functional strength, and athleticism.
Water fitness is fantastic at building strength as water offers natural resistance. Any exercise done in water is going to be more effective at building strength than if you had performed the same exercise on land. The reason is that water is about 12 to 14 times denser than air. Due to the natural resistance of water, exercises such as walking in water can burn twice as many calories an hour than walking on land. Additionally, the water provides support for the body, making it less likely for a muscle, bone or joint to get injured. Water supports up to 80% of your weight, thereby causing less strain on the joints, back, and torso when compared to exercises performed on land.
Class Participation Options:
- Session Registration: Sessions are generally 8 weeks long, except during our Holiday Mini-Session, which runs for 4 weeks during December and January. Most classes can be joined after the start date and will be prorated for missed classes. Registered participants are NOT eligible for a refund or credit for missed classes except those cancelled by The Center.
- Chance Card: A chance card is a 10-class punchcard which allows you to drop into classes without committing to a full session of classes. The following types of chance cards are currently available at the Welcome Desk: Adult Group Fitness, Yoga/Tai Chi/Pilates, Spinning®/Zumba, and Adult Water Fitness. Note that you must purchase a chance card for the specific type of class you wish to attend, i.e., you cannot use an Adult Group Fitness Chance Card to attend a Yoga Class. If the class is full with registered participants, chance card holders will not be permitted entrance regardless of daily class attendance. However, this card affords you flexibility if you have a schedule that changes frequently.
- Pay by Day: Join class for a one-time visit using our daily drop-in class fee, regardless of membership or resident status.
All class participants must check in at the front desk prior to each class, regardless of membership status. At the front desk, all paid participants will receive a class pass which will be collected by the instructor at the start of class. Participants without a pass will be asked to return to the front desk to obtain one.
