  • What can you expect when you first walk into a Body & Soul class? Besides a bunch of smiling and friendly faces, you’ll find: A rigorous workout – all of our programs are guaranteed to challenge and strengthen you. Instructors will show modifications so that every student can work at their own level. At the same time, instructors will inspire you and push you to do more than you ever thought you could! Soul enrichment – the “soul” component varies from class to class. Sometimes it is a brief prayer, at other times it is a question or a thought-provoking quote that stimulates discussion. At every class, however, the upbeat contemporary Christian music motivates and uplifts the spirit. Friendships – In contrast to classes at some facilities where you enter the room, work out, and leave, without talking to a single person, in Body & Soul you will form lasting friendships with other students and with the instructor. This personal connection is one of the distinctives of our classes. Women of all stages and ages are welcome in Body & Soul classes.
