HIIT+ is our signature class and one we definitely recommend you try. It’s an all-over workout that will get your heart pumping, make you sweat, and tone your muscles. Plus, since classes are capped at 10 participants, you’ll get individual attention from your certified personal trainer. It’s a great way to enjoy the fun of a group atmosphere while also ensuring that you’re working out correctly, which is so important as a beginner. 

When you join a HIIT+ class, you can expect to go through a 5-station circuit and guided practice, along with a warm-up and cool-down period. You’ll spend either 30 or 50 minutes increasing your heart rate, improving your cardiovascular health, and boosting your metabolism. This is a class you’ll feel the next day! And the best part? You can sign up for a free pass to try a HIIT+ class here.


Looking for something less intense to start out? BODYFLOW is perfect. It’s all about helping you find your calm and get centered while also stretching and strengthening your muscles. BODYFLOW is a yoga-based class that will take you through a series of simple yoga moves, with some added elements of Tai Chi and Pilates. An inspired soundtrack will help you find your serenity as you bend and stretch.

BODYFLOW is the perfect class to help you improve your mind, your body, and your life. After all, that’s what fitness is about, isn’t it? Grab your mat (or borrow one from us) and a towel, put on your comfiest fitted gym attire, and join us at our next BODYFLOW class!


Are you a senior over 65? SilverSneakers classes could be perfect for you! That’s because SilverSneakers is a program created specifically for seniors, and it’s included in many Medicare plans. That means you can participate at no extra cost to you. Awesome, right? 

At YouFit, we offer a variety of SilverSneakers classes. For example, you could take a SilverSneakers yoga class to help increase your flexibility, balance, and range of movement. You’ll participate in seated and standing yoga poses, breathing exercises, and relaxation to help relieve stress and improve mental clarity. 

Or try SilverSneakers Classic to increase your range of motion, build muscle strength, and improve activities for daily living. You’ll be able to use a chair for seated exercises and standing support. Plus, your instructor can modify exercises according to your fitness level. Check with your local YouFit gym for current SilverSneakers options. 


If you love music and dancing, Zumba is the class for you! You’ll feel like you’re partying instead of working out! Zumba classes let you rock out to exhilarating music, including high-energy Latin and international beats. And because it’s so easy to do, it’s perfect for beginners! 

Zumba is not your average, boring workout class. If you’ve put off getting fit because it feels like a chore, give Zumba a try. It’s so much fun that you might forget you’re exercising altogether! Come to class and get lost in the music. You just might find yourself getting fit without feeling like you put any effort in at all!

Total Sculpt

Total Sculpt is another of our signature classes, and it’s perfect for beginners! You can expect Total Sculpt classes to give you a full-body workout while providing you with the motivational guidance you need. Your workout will consist of sculpting and compound-toning exercises that will have you burning calories in no time!

In fact, Total Sculpt is designed to fire up your metabolism so you can lose weight and achieve your Total Sculpt! Plus, because Total Sculpt is a weight-bearing class, it also helps prevent the development of osteoporosis. You can feel great knowing that you’re helping to strengthen your bones and muscles while also taking weight off your joints and looking fabulous!


It’s no secret that cycling is a great workout, and with our Cycle classes, you can get all the benefits of cycling within the safety of our YouFit gym. Plus, you’ll never be bored with our Cycle classes that take you through stunning terrains, including flats, hills, and mountain peaks. Get lost in the music as you cycle, and challenge yourself with time trials and interval training.
