At Community Fitness, a lineup of experienced instructors emphasizes positive group-exercise through a huge variety of classes suitable for all experience levels. With more than 75 classes held each week between the two locations, visitors can drop in on Bodypump classes, where pumped-up participants can burn up to 600 calories per session. Chi-focusing Qi Gong & tai chi hone core muscles, increase tendon strength, and enhance mind-control abilities. Twist hips during Zumba classes, which combine aerobics, dance moves, and bass-driven Latin music in a spacious studio. Vinyasa-flow yoga syncs breath and body movements for a centering full-body workout that leaves participants more relaxed than an emperor in bean-bag chair.
For nearly ten years, Community Fitness—voted Best Fitness Club in Seattle magazine's 2014 Readers' Choice Poll—has been motivated by the vision of people striving toward goals together while having fun enjoying music and movement. Lifelong dancers teach barre classes, pharmacists-cum-personal-trainers guide yoga sessions, and CrossFit–trained mothers of three lead BodyPump workouts.
Community Fitness' approach is balanced across three different studios, each with its own focus and to-the-point name, that combine to offer more than 100 classes per week. The Play studio offers movement and dance classes, the Power studio revolves around strength training, and the Flow studio takes a mind-body approach with gentler exercises such as yoga. Each studio creates a bright space equipped with sprung floors and high-tech light and sound.
