As temperatures soar outside, it’s a struggle to get out and exercise without melting into a puddle of sweat. It can be dangerous to exercise outside during the peak hours of summer heat. Exercising in extreme heat can increase your core temperature and cause you to become dehydrated quickly. Beat the heat and come exercise indoors at Competitive Edge. Here are a few things we’ve got going on this summer to help you stay fit without overheating.

Group Fitness

If you’re motivated by a high-energy, group environment with lots of great music, our group fitness classes are for you!

  • SweatVibes – This class is part party, part exercise and all fun! This is a class for people of all fitness levels. You control the intensity and level of exertion. This class is designed to be so much fun, you’ll forget you’re exercising.
  • Zumba – This dance-based fitness class pumps you up to a fun mix of samba, funk, salsa, reggaetón and more. Another exercise-in-disguise class, this workout combines all elements of fitness without feeling like exercise. You’ll get a total body workout that includes cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, but it will just feel like a dance party.

Camps and Clinics

IMG_5524_1Kids and teens can work on their chosen sport or a little of everything in our summer camps and clinics.

  • All Sports Summer Camp – For kids ages 6 to 13, campers will participate in baseball, softball, soccer, football, basketball, tennis and volleyball. They will work on good sportsmanship. Leadership skills and making new friends, all while staying fit and having lots of fun. For parents needing before and after care for their kids, we provide that as well, for an additional fee.
