If you are looking to find a community of like-minded people or make new friends, group fitness is a great place to start.

Spin, Strength, HIIT, BLT and more. We offer an array of group fitness classes to meet the dynamic needs of our communities. Group fitness classes are included with the Vike Fit Plus and Vikes All In memberships.

Starting a fitness routine can be intimidating, but it helps to know what to expect before joining any class. If you are starting out with the idea of a group fitness class, keep in mind there is never a one-size-fits-all. If you tried one type of class and didn’t love it, there’s probably still another fitness class that might be a game-changer for you.

Reserve your spot

Online reservations are available 72 hours prior to the start of the class and closes 5 minutes prior.
