GROUP FITNESS CLASSES
AUGUST 2020 Schedule:
Mondays 6p-7p: Strength in Beats
Where: Indoors/In Person with Covid precautions in place OR attend virtually via Zoom.
What: Ahh the satisfaction and true merits of pumping it to tempo! We’ll use our bodyweight & more weights to sync our resistance and cardiovascular training with the music. It’s not a dance class, but addresses the posture, coordination, muscular power, flexibility/mobility, and balance skills any dancing body would want to keep conditioned. Modifications are always brought to make this class suitable for all. Music selections reflect a variety of genres, tempos, and inspirations.
How to sign up & prepare: Sign up in advance via GMCF.
Please bring water and you’re welcome to bring your own yoga mat though I'll provide mats & weights courtesy of GMCF. If attending virtually, we'll send you the zoom link once you're signed in.
Wednesdays 5p-6p: Total Body Strength & Conditioning
Where: Virtual via Zoom OR In person/indoors at GMCF Downtown (50 Main St in Montpelier)
What: Same Strength and Conditioning format you've come to love. A dynamic set of exercises focus on strength, endurance and flexibility training for all levels.
How to sign up & prepare: Sign up in advance at GMCF. If taking class virtually, we'll send you the zoom link once you're signed up on the roster. You’ll need a yoga mat and any dumbbells/tools you have. In the studio we’ll provide all equipment but you’re welcome to bring your own.

*** the GMCF website is somewhat difficult to navigate, I know. The good news is you only need to use it to make an account or to buy class credits. Then, the Club Ready App is MUCH easier to just view the class schedule and sign up.
*** All classes require pre-registration per state mandate (no drop-ins for now)
***If possible, please sign up for class within 1hr of start time.
*** If harsh weather makes it so we have to move an outdoor class indoors, all participants signed up will get an email approximately 1hr before class start time. This way you can decide if you want to come and take class indoors, or cancel out of the class (zoom isn’t an alternative for now, unfortunately).
*** For virtual classes, you will receive an email from GMCF after you sign up with instructions for finding the Zoom link to my class!
*** having trouble signing up, with your account, with the zoom links, need assistance of any kind? Here are GMCF’s contacts:

I met Emma about 2 years ago when she started teaching crossfit classes at Studio Zenith.
I will start with the disclaimer that I have never studied Fitness Science, but that said, here is what I
First, in Emmas classes, one cannot predict what is coming. She mixes it up, which I believe is
important, especially for older folks like me.
Second, I have taken plenty of classes with instructors who are primarily focused on themselves.
Emma demonstrates the moves and then is wide awake observing the clients and offering smart
Third, although Emma teaches a serious class, she brings mirth and laughter to the mix. It is said
laughter is the best medicine and I believe that.
She is widely respected around here.
