Eliza, co-owner, has always loved all things fitness. She began teaching fitness classes in high school and, after a detour in the corporate world, is thrilled to be back in the saddle helping others find a fun path to an active lifestyle. The strong sense of community drew Eliza and her husband back to Lawrence, where she has started a family and developed strong ties in the community. Eliza and Susie are focused on creating a fun, inviting fitness atmosphere that emulates the strong sense of community that exists in Lawrence. Eliza is a certified USAT Level 1 Triathlon Coach, Precision Nutrition Level I Coach, Certified Personal Trainer, certified RealRyder indoor cycling instructor, certified RIP 60 instructor and a certified BootyBarre instructor.
Eliza H instructs the following:
Cycle + Sculpt
This class fuses cycling + sculpting work with 30 minutes on the RealRyder bikes for a total body workout as you tilt, turn and balance, engaging your core and building upper and lower body strength. Then we will move to the back room to continue your calorie burn while strengthening the core muscles and toning the upper and lower body. This is an all-level class.
Finally, you can train in a way that’s both functional and fun! Join our certified RealRyder cycling instructors as you turn, lean and balance during a 50-minute Ryde. As you move through an expanded range of dynamic, functional movements, you get a comprehensive body workout -- with special emphasis on activating essential core muscles. Monitors mounted on our bikes measure RPM and heart rate to track and maximize your workout. Sound like a great time? It is! This is an all-level class.
Just Barre is a ballet-inspired sculpting class that combines the best of Pilates with elements of dance, yoga and cardio sculpting. This class incorporates mat work and small accessories — including hand weights, playground balls and resistance bands — to challenge clients at all fitness levels. This is an all-level class.
Basic Barre follows the same format as our popular Just Barre class but uses a slightly slower pace, allowing for a greater emphasis on form and alignment as well as additional modifications if needed. Very few advanced moves are used in this class and choreography remains more consistent. But don't be fooled by the basics label...one class will leave you aching for more! You do not need to take a Basic Barre class as your first class but it is recommended.
TRX+Barre combines functional strength segments using our suspension training system with sculpting and cardio segments from Just Barre. All fitness levels are welcome to this class. We suggest taking a Just Barre or TRX Mixx! class prior to joining this fusion class.
