Class of the Month: Tri Mixx

What is it?

Tri Mixx is the ultimate total body workout.

This class includes:

  • 20 minutes of cardiovascular conditioning in the form of step
  • Kickboxing
  • Plyometric movements or hi/low aerobics
  • 20 minutes of strength training using dumbbells, barbells or resistance bands
  • 20 minutes of core training (abdominals and lower back)

Why do it?

The combination of weight training and increased cardiovascular effort makes Tri Mixx a beneficial type of cross training.

You will gain muscle through the resistance training and increase your cardiovascular endurance during the slightly elevated heart rate that is maintained in between sets and throughout the session. You will also burn high amounts of calories during each class and for 24 to 48 hours after the session.

Exercises are completed in a row, and therefore, the time spent exercising is condensed. Separate cardiovascular training is not necessary. All body parts are trained in one session, making it a full body workout.
