About this Class

Crunched for time? No problem! Join us for a 16 minute class that focuses on building a stable, stronger and more powerful core. This class is broken up into two sections with the first half incorporating a fresh twist on traditional crunches and sit-up- s.Then, we’ll fire up the rest of our core, including shoulders, lower back, and glutes with everyone’s favorite isometric exercise, plank! But don’t be fooled—we’ve incorporated some dance-inspired movements to spice up our plank series for that little extra burn!

Ashley’s love of dance has kept her active and passionate about fitness for over 27 years. Starting with gymnastics and ballet, as every little girl does, Ashley’s love of dance grew into a fitness love affair that extended beyond the studio into the gym—from yoga, boxing and weightlifting to cycling, High-Intensity Training (HIT), and Total Resistance eXercise (TRX). Thanks to years of dance and loving to try new ways to stay fit, she strongly encourages others to strive for active, healthy lifestyles.
