Group Xcercise is the heart of what we do!!!
Group exercise is typically defined as "exercise performed by a group of individuals led by an instructor" - but at Xcelerate Fitness it is so much more! Our instructors love what they do and they want to see our members meet their fitness goals. All our group exercise classes are part of your monthly dues - NO EXTRA COSTS FOR CLASSES! We also provide one of the most extensive group exercise calendars in the Valley.
Group exercise offers a variety of benefits you might miss out on if you choose to work out on your own. Some of the benefits include exposure to a social and fun environment, a safe and effectively designed workout, a consistent exercise schedule, an accountability factor for participating in exercise, and a workout that requires no prior exercise knowledge or experience.

Tabata is a high-intensity workout style that has fitness and weight-loss benefits. The class is broken into timed intervals, working at a high intensity - then taking a short rest. The theory behind the class is if your body only knows it has to work for a short interval, it will exert more energy.
Tabata training will raise your metabolism and heart rate immediately. Since you are performing exercises at a very high intensity, your body will have to work much harder to keep it up. Your metabolism will stay at that high not only during the workout, but after the workout as well. This means that your body will be burning fat for hours after.
To get better balance, power and agility, Kickboxing is king among workouts. Experts who have studied the sport say nearly everyone—even older people who might shy away from such things—can benefit from throwing a punch.
Kickboxing training tends to involve shorts bouts, two to three minutes long, of intense, repetitive movement—like hitting a punching bag over and over again and kicking and kneeing a pad someone else is holding. “If you look at the research on high-intensity interval training [HIIT], you see these short, intense periods of activity can have big benefits,” he says. Some research shows that even very brief stretches—just 60 seconds—of HIIT can offer the same gains in heart and lung health as 45 minutes of less-intense exercise.
Uncover the transformative power of a quiet mind and ensure renewal of a healthier you through a combination of movement, breath and meditation. A committed YOGA practice will enhance your stability, improve your balance and flexibility and leave you stronger, healthier, more energized and centered for your day.

The Spinning® program is an individually paced, non-competitive, group training program designed for all ages and fitness levels. Each bike is equipped with an adjustable resistance knob, which allows each student to select his/her own level of intensity.

In ballet training, the barre is the horizontal handrail dancers grip while perfecting their technique. Barre-style workouts take those classic ballet warmup exercises and reimagine them for a much wider audience. At Xcelerate we offer our version - X-BARRE.
The workout is primarily a leg-and-butt workout; from your ankles and calves up through your knees, hips and glutes, barre movements are all about improving range of motion, strength and flexibility in your lower half by forcing one of your legs to perform graceful and precise movements while the other supports and stabilizes your body.
