Who Are Absolution Classes Best For?

Absolution appeals to people of all fitness levels who crave a six-pack and a strong midsection. The exercises are easy-to-follow and can be executed with or without weights to vary intensity. Custom options for exercises are always provided for you by our exceptional instructors.

Is Absolution a Good Workout?

Absolutely! Absolution improves your flexibility, balance and core strength.

  • Flexibility training helps prevent injury and deepens range of movement. The benefits of flexibility include improved posture, decreased risk of injury, increased physical performance and reduced muscle soreness.
  • Balance is essential in our everyday activities. Often a neglected component of fitness, balance is challenged through standing exercises and exercises that decrease the base of support. Balance training brings improvements in coordination and posture.
  • Core Strength. Increased core strength helps to provide a firm base of support for virtually all movement. Strength and coordination of the core and back muscles is important not only in improving overall fitness, but also improving the functional fitness activities of daily life.

How Difficult is Absolution?

Attention Abs! Exercises targeting core strength are manageable for everybody. Upping the ante with hard, harder and hardest exercise options throughout class allows everyone to feel challenged and successful. “I regret that ab workout,” said no one ever!

How Long Is Each Class?

Train your abs standing, kneeling and on the floor in 30 minutes to develop a powerful core in Absolution!

What Should I Wear?

Come ready to play. Typically, people wear sweat wicking clothing that will offer ample coverage and will stay put and allow you to move with ease throughout the range of motion of exercises.

Cross training Gym Shoes.  Wear comfortable shoes that offer support and stability as you move and balance during class.  

What do I need to Bring?

Hydrate, my friend! Make sure you have plenty of water with you.  Pack a towel to catch your sweat, as you will be dripping in finesse.  Most importantly, bring a great attitude and smile to share.
