Below are all the fitness offerings for Heritage residents.
 
 
Fitness with Laurie 
Monday, Wednesday and Friday
9:00am
$5 per lesson
 
Join resident and fitness instructor Laurie Byington for our three weekly workouts! Laurie custom tailors her program to fit your needs. Here is more information about Laurie and how she can help transform your body! 
I have been involved in fitness my entire life from running, cycling, swimming and group training to teaching (past 10 years) boot camps, group fitness and personal training to all ages and all activity levels.
 
My philosophy is to never say “I can’t, instead start saying I can’t, yet!”
 
We use light dumbbells and body weight!
 
We target specific body parts at every session so you get a stronger, more toned body with each workout.
Workouts are designed for EVERY activity level. Modifications are made for each individual when needed.
 
If you are recovering from an injury, new to the workout scene, or an already active individual, my workouts will help you reach your activity goals.
 
Every workout is different from the one before. Yoga stretching is always included as our cool down, so you’ll leave feeling stronger, refreshed and calm!
 
Most importantly we form a workout community that encourages each other and holds each other accountable AND (of course) has FUN!

Tap Dance with Brenna
Wednesday at 10:30am
$10 per lesson 
 
Tap dance is a lively and entertaining activity that transforms the dancer from a mere performer into a fully-fledged percussive instrument. Not only is it fun, it is a great way to get your cardio workout in.
 
Some of the many benefits of Tap Dance:
 
Boost cardiovascular performance - If performed at a high intensity for 15 to 30 minutes, tap dancing offers great exercise for the cardiovascular system, working out the heart and lungs so they function more efficiently. Strong CV performance is vital to ensure that muscles are supplied with a steady flow of oxygen.
 
Tone leg muscles - Tap dancing offers a great way of toning your lower-body muscles by optimizing the thighs and quads.
 
Reduce the risk of high blood pressure - If you suffer from high blood pressure, tap dancing could offer an effective way of bringing it down. Tap dancing gets blood flowing around all the body’s major muscle groups, causing arteries to dilate and contract more effectively.
 
Burn fat - If you’ve been trundling on a treadmill for what feels like an eternity, maybe it’s time to try something new. Tap dancing is a surprisingly effective activity if you want to burn calories quickly. Depending on the intensity of your tap workout, anywhere between three and four hundred calories can be burnt off.
