If you have not tried one of our community classes, you are missing out on one of the best options available in this area! Our group exercise classes are designed by exercise physiologists and therapists of Covenant Health. All our instructors go through an intensive training, not just a weekend or on-line certification. Classes are offered in Knoxville and the surrounding area.
Class price is $3/person.
To help guide you through our class menu, we have arranged classes by the fitness aspect that the class targets. You may attend multiple classes and multiple locations. Convenience and flexibility are also two more advantages of bodyWORKS!
CardioMIX is a high-energy aerobic workout, but easy on the joints. We don’t jump or run, but we are tough on fighting the bulge!
We incorporate many styles of cardio to keep the workouts fresh and fun! We may do a little kickboxing, a little dancing, a little step moves without the step (you have to try it!), and maybe even some “GI Joe” moves. What we DON’T do is the same ol’ workout with the same ol’ music week after week.Participants need a mat and weights.
Advanced Senior Cardio
Advanced Sr. Cardio classes are for more fit seniors, challenging them with a tougher workout but still catering to the needs of the mature person. We do use floor exercises for a more advanced workout. Even though this class is designed for those 50 and older, younger people will get a great workout as well. Participants need a mat and hand weights.
Sr. Cardio is for the active senior who needs a little easier workout but focuses on keeping young at heart. We do NOT go to the floor with this class, so most active seniors can get a great workout here. Participants need optional light hand weights.
Sit-B-Fit classes are for any age person who needs an easier class which is primarily performed in or with chairs. This is a great class for anyone with mobility issues. This is also a great workout for continuing rehabilitation after injuries before moving on to the harder classes. Participants are encouraged to bring light weights, but optional.
Pilates with us is enjoyable and effective. We only use conservative, safe exercises but give you a great muscular workout. If you have never tried a Pilates class, try ours – you will be glad you did!
Pilates primarily uses your own body as its workout tool. Participants need a mat.
The BALL class uses the large stability balls, which are great for improving balance along with muscular tone and strength. We do try to “have a ball” while utilizing this great tool!
This class is great for people with back/neck problems–tell the instructor and she/he will show you specific exercises or adaptations to help. Participants need a stability ball; choose your ball based on your height.
Tone & Tighten
Tone & Tighten class focuses on developing core strength and stability, as well as all the major muscles in the body. We use a variety of equipment, provided at the site, and our own bodyweight. This class does go to the floor. Participants need a mat.
Mind, Body, & Spirit-Focused Classes
Yoga classes are great for everyone! We will teach you the safest and most effective poses and styles of yoga. We take into account that not everyone can or ever will put their foot behind their head! BUT all of us can benefit from the principles and exercises of yoga.
If you want to work muscles, decrease stress, and increase your energy level, try our yoga. Participants need mats.
Mind & Body
Mind & Body classes incorporate some yoga, some Pilates, and a lot of core work from physical therapy. We focus on working your core and relaxing at the end. Participants work up a sweat and chill out in the end. Great for anyone. Participants need mats.
We are currently looking for sites to host more classes, especially for after work (starting 5:30 p.m. or later). If your church, community center, or business has a large open room or gym, and you are interested in this opportunity to partner with us, please give us a call at 865-374-0457!
We do all the work – you just supply the space!
