Fitness

The journey to a healthy mind begins with a healthy body. At Om’echaye, we offer an array of fitness classes for all skill levels and focus areas. Our weight loss services will help you look and feel your best, and are tailored just for you so you can achieve the dream body you’ve always wanted. Our programs not only strengthen and tone your body but help you reach emotional clarity.  

Physical Benefits of Fitness Classes

Joining a fitness class goes beyond the obvious benefits of a regular exercise regimen, like increased strength and weight loss. Guided by our expert instructors, you will learn the proper form needed for their favorite workout routines, maximizing the effects of each session, and minimizing strain and damage to joints and muscles.

A structured class also gives you the opportunity for a more well-rounded workout routine. Left to our own devices, we might be tempted to stick to just one workout or be hesitant to increase difficulty or resistance. In a classroom setting, however, the course is set for you, leaving you with a fuller, more productive workout.

Mental Benefits of Fitness Classes

Exercise releases our body’s natural endorphins, the pleasure receptors that make us feel joy. Endorphins cause the so-called “runner’s high,”or enhanced bouts of euphoria that are often experienced after a good workout. People who engage in a regular workout regimen often have lower rates of depression and anxiety than their sedentary counterparts.

The group atmosphere of our fitness classes aims to motivate you to work your hardest and have a great time while doing it. Our instructors and your classmates are there to support you, and the feeling of community that comes with accomplishing goals together make our classes a one-of-a-kind experience.

Tips for Choosing the Right Fitness Class

For those who want to forget they’re working out, our Zumba classes combine the fun of a Latin dance night with a full-body workout. The upbeat music and group atmosphere will make you forget you’re at the gym.

Zumba®

Zumba ® combines high energy and motivating music with unique moves and exercise combinations. Zumba is based on the principle that a workout should be fun and easy. It’s a feel-happy workout that is great for both the body and the mind. Zumba is a fusion of Latin and International music - dance themes that create a dynamic, exciting, effective fitness system! This class uses the principles of fitness interval training and resistance training to maximize caloric output, fat burning, and total body toning. You’ll learn a mixture of body sculpting movements and easy-to-follow dance steps.

Body sculpting is a total body workout where the primary focus is resistance. With the use of weights, weight bars, exercise bands, dumbbells, or a combination, the instructor guides you through a set of exercises that tone your muscles and build strength.

Cardio Kickboxing

Kickboxing combines martial arts moves with high intensity cardio. In this class, we use weighted globes to increase the intensity of the upper body workout while the kicks and the leg movements create a great cardio workout.

Circuit Training

Circuit training is the combination of strength and cardio exercises, repeated two to three times with little or no rest in between. Exercises are organized in a circuit with multiple stations, and each station has a different exercise that targets a specific group of muscles.

Cycling

A typical cycling class involves a single instructor at the front of the class who leads the participants through routines that are designed to simulate terrain and situations similar to riding a bike outdoors. Participant goals are based on heart rate.

T.R.X

The TRX Suspension Trainer is the original, best-in-class workout system that leverages gravity and your bodyweight to perform hundreds of exercises. You're in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise - because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.

HIIT is a fitness strategy in which you do the most amount of effort in a very short period of time, followed by a short or non-recovery period.
