The class beings with an athletic, outdoor warm-up then you’ll head back inside for seven rounds of conditioning, working for 40 seconds on with 20 seconds of a break. Try something new! Come experience T7!

*MAX* (Full Body)
MAX (Maximum Interval Training) is a 30-minute class that promises to push you to your maximum levels of exertion.
For those who are unfamiliar with interval training, it is essentially a form of training where you vary your exertion in several intervals. For instance instead of running for 30 minutes you might divide this into two minutes of jogging, one minute of sprinting and five minutes of walking and repeat this several times.
Although the MAX class is inside, the same logic will apply with the use of plyometric moves, weighted and body weight strength exercises. It's only 30 minutes, but in this case, 30 minutes is plenty of time!
Afterburn is an innovative, circuit-style class that utilizes rowing machines. The class is based around your MyZone belt, pushing you to stay in the "Afterburn" zone. Moving through 7 different circuits, you will get a full-body workout that is guaranteed to give your day a boost!
Get a great cardio and core workout in less than an hour! This class includes a 45 minute cycle class followed by 10 minutes of core work on the BOSU. Props used: indoor cycles, Pilates rings, medicine balls, and BOSU trainers.
PUSH alternates strength and cardio sets with short periods of rest. Classic interval training, PUSH will yield continuous dips and spikes in your heart rate; it's great metabolic conditioning! PUSH will absolutely PUSH you to your limits.
If you love cycle and you love high-intensity interval training -- this is the perfect class for you!
This fast-paced class will keep you focused and leave you breathless. Clocking in at just 30 minutes, Interval Cycle 30 is one of the most efficient ways to burn calories and get in a great cardio workout. Then you will head into the main studio for 15 minutes of core work! This class is a great addition to your workout regime!
