The Waukon Wellness Center offers a wide variety of group exercise classes daily to accommodate every age and fitness level, with some classes beginning as early as 5 a.m. for the early birds, and others ending between 6-7 p.m. “Weekend Warriors,” a cycling class, is also offered every Saturday morning at 7 a.m. for those who desire that little “extra.” Classes are instructed by experienced, local “talents” (pictured at right), all of whom are certified in their specialty, with many instructors having multiple certifications in numerous specialties.

At present, Waukon Wellness Center is fortunate to have instructors specializing in, and currently offers, the following classes: Cycling, Zumba, Zumba Gold, Cross Train, Barre, Beyond Barre, Pilates, Stretch & Strengthen, Kickboxing, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), and multiple Yoga varieties.

Classes are offered year-round with a new “schedule” released every three months with any changes. A current class schedule may be found on the Wellness Center website, www.waukonwellness.com, or may be picked up at the front desk of the Center.

It is not necessary to be a member of the Wellness Center to attend classes, and there is no sign-up necessary for group exercise classes. All that is need for anyone who would like to attend a class is a comfortable pair of shoes and the desire to improve their health.

Cost of classes varies for members and non-members. A “Fit Plus” membership is also available which includes free classes and free daycare. Call the Waukon Wellness Center at 563-568-0074 for any additional information.
