MEGA- Questions Answered
HIP Fitness combines the elements of classical Pilates, cardio and weight training. You will strengthen, tighten, tone, and lengthen your muscles through several slow exercises focusing on slow twitch muscles. The workout is low impact, but high intensity. You will start shaking in no time!
The workout is intense, but the routines are kept simple to ensure everyone uses appropriate form. We do offer beginner classes but most of our new students do fine in our all level classes. There are several modifications and classes are small, so let the instructor know if you need help.
