Fitness Classes

Recommended Posts

I never really pay attention to the fitness class schedule, I know that most of them are an additional cost. 

 

I'm wondering if anyone knows any details as to what time spin and/or yoga classes are usually offered on port and sea days.  I recall they are usually in the morning, but I'm curious as to if they're usually at like 6am, or more like 9am?

On the Eclipse last month the spin classes were held at 9:30 on sea days but not every sea day as we had 4. Cost is just under $15.  Can't help with the other classes

Not this time but last cruise, yes.   They were all booked by the time I thought about it this last cruise.  I took 2 classes the cruise before and you get a workout, that's for sure.  I'd do it again.

Thanks for the info for the Infinity as I love Zumba and will try to take a class. Did you notice if there were any activities down by the pool that was similar to Zumba?

Mit429, I honestly think it depends how advanced you are and your expectations. For me last year on Reflection -Dec 11 night cruise, the spin sucked, so did Zumba. 2 years prior to that-Alaska cruise- spin instructor was an actual road cyclist ---- AMAZING!!!! Based on that we even took our SPDs to have this great workout last year and were sorely disappointed. My goodness what a mess it was, no rhythm, no appropriate cadence, we ended up doing our own thing.  So now, we just run the stairs top to bottom for warm up, then go lift weights, then do Persian Gardens. Works like a charm and so much fun!!!!

Hmmm ya, I was thinking it might be hit or miss. Do you recall - Did they have shoes for rent or did you need to bring your cycling shoes - I wouldn’t want to pack a pair unnecessarily.

 

thanks for the info!
