Class Descriptions

Cycle

Come take a ride on our new bikes!  Indoor cycling is an excellent low impact, aerobic workout that will challenge your cardiovascular system while also building and toning muscle. Motivating instructors and great music will get you through the simulated flats, hill climbs and sprints.  Participants burn an average of 400 to 600 calories per class!  This class is suitable for all fitness and experience levels. 

Step

Step is an energizing workout using a height-adjustable step. You will do simple movements on, over and around the step for a fun and dynamic workout. Get in shape, burn calories, condition your muscles and connect with friends. This class is a blast!
 

HIIT

HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training.  Each workout combines short bursts of intense exercise followed by brief rest intervals. This is an extremely effective workout that burns almost 30% more calories compared to steady state exercises like jogging.  Research also shows that after a HIIT workout, your body continues to burn calories for up to 24 hours, an effect called Excess Post Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC).  We recommend 2-3 sessions of HIIT per week for maximum benefit. 

Pump

If you are looking to sculpt a tone and lean physique, this is the class for you! A variety of equipment including barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, exercise balls and resistance bands are used to work all the major muscles in the body, leaving you fit and strong.  Each workout is completely unique which helps you avoid plateaus by keeping your body guessing what will come next. 

Lift

Similar to our pump classes, this class is designed to build and tone muscle using classic weight lifting exercises and techniques.  Each class focuses on total body toning, targeting all the major muscle groups. Explore what your body is capable of under the supervision of a certified instructor that will ensure you have proper form for maximum benefit.

Pop Pilates

Pop pilates is a workout using very specific targeted exercises to improve strength, flexibility and posture with particular focus on the core. This class can be done in bare feet on a yoga mat,  no other equipment is needed.  Chisel your entire body while rhythmically flowing from one exercise to the next and rocking out to your favorite top 40 hits. 

High Fitness

High fitness is the hottest new workout trend. Combining aerobics, HIIT training and great music into a class that feels like a dance party! Participants in high fitness know how to get down and have fun. This hardcore high energy class burns between 300-400 calories in an hour.

High Low

High low is a low impact version of high fitness.  While still high energy and tons of fun, this workout is easier on the body. 

Power Vinyasa Yoga

Power vinyasa is an active, engaging style of yoga that connects breath and fluid movement to improve strength and flexibility, while calming the mind. A regular yoga practice can help reduce stress, alleviate back pain, improve posture and manage chronic stress.    

Slow Flow Yoga

Come relax and unwind to smooth music with this slower-moving yoga practice.  This class is characterized by slow flow and longer holds designed to relieve muscle tension and restore balance to the body and mind. Research shows regular practice can improve sleep and decrease stress hormones. This will be your favorite hour of the week!

Bootcamp

An interval training class that mixes calisthenics and body weight exercises with cardio and strength training. This class will push you!  Expect to sweat and feel the burn as you scorch calories. With high variety from week to week, this class forces your body to adapt and change for the better.  You are strong and capable, you will enjoy crushing this class!

Water Aerobics
Form of aerobics that takes place in a pool so that it has less strain on the joints. Provides cardio and strength training benefits.
Tsunami Fitness
Tsunami Fitness grows core and joint stabilization, improves over-all fitness, prevents injury through increased proprioception and burns calories. All of this while balancing on a floating board in a pool! 
CIRCUIT
CIRCUIT is a dynamic class that combines HIIT-type cardio moves with weight lifting in a rotating circuit.  Each week the circuit changes.  The goal of this type of functional training is to torch calories while also building muscle.  Come ready to push yourself, and have fun while doing it.  
Seniors - Cardio/Weights
A blend of cardio exercises to get the heart pumping and burn calories, mixed with weight lifting to tone muscles and build strength.  This class is designed to be low impact and is suitable for seniors, pregnant women or anyone looking for a good workout that is less stressful on the body.  
Seniors - Yoga
A slow flow combination of yoga and pilates designed to increase flexibility and maintain range of motion, while also working on balance and strength.  Specifically targeted to the 55+ population, but anyone is welcome!

Fitness Instructors

Jeni Viernes
JeniWebI am a Certified Personal Trainer, through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), and a 500-Registered Yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance.  I enjoy teaching weight lifting, HIIT, bootcamp, cycling and yoga.  Fitness has always been a big part of my life and my identity.  Soccer was my first love.  I started playing when I was four years old and went on to play in college and then professionally for Real Salt Lake Women here in SLC.  My favorite part about teaching at the DCC is the personal atmosphere, I love getting to know each participant and pushing them to achieve their fitness goals.

CathyI am originally from Utah, but I have lived in Washington, Arizona and Illinois. I have a BS in biology and a MS in plant biology. I am the mother of four awesome kids and I love being active! My fitness journey began with running and soccer in high school. Since 2000, I have run 15 marathons, a handful of ultra trail runs including several 50Ks and one 50 miler and completed a full 140.6 Ironman triathlon. I enjoy trail running, hiking, mountain biking, swimming, stand-up paddleboarding, camping, gardening and horticulture, photography, baking, cooking and spending time with my family. I am cycle certified and love fitness because of how it makes me feel inside and out: happy!
TyAnne Middleton

TyAnne photoI have been working in fitness for about 10 years and grew up in an active family watching and playing sports so fitness has always been part of my life. I’ve taught all ages and abilities and believe fitness is for everyone. I've been at Daybreak since the summer of 2020 and currently teach Cycling, HIIT, Pilates, Yoga and Tsunami.  Outside of Daybreak, I also teach Kickboxing, Tsunami, PowerFlex, Functional Fitness, Barre and TRX with certifications from Stages, Madd Dogg, AFAA, Tsunami, TRX and more. During the quarantine lockdown, I got my certification through the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) for golf fitness and performance. I enjoy hiking, skiing, wakeboarding, golf, photography and traveling with my family.



Stephanie Reading
Stephanie PhotoI have been teaching group fitness classes since 2014, but my love of all things health and wellness began long before I began teaching. I grew up playing sports and love trying any and all outdoor activities. I received my bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Utah State University. My husband enjoys my cooking hobby and supports any and all new adventures I decide to take on. My fitness resume includes teaching TRX, boot camp, HIIT, cardio, sculpt/muscle, HIGH Fitness, mat Pilates, and indoor cycling classes along with some small group/personal training. My three “assistant coaches” (kids) loved helping me coach girls high school volleyball. Caramel M&Ms and chips and salsa are my favorite.


Kelsey Janson
Kelsey photoI teach High Fitness and became certified during quarantine this year! High Fitness brought me so much happiness during uncertain times that I knew I wanted to teach it. I am also an American Sign Language Interpreter and have been working for 11 years now.
I have two daughters (ages 5 and 3) and a wonderful husband who supports all my High Fitness endeavors. I love Daybreak and have lived here for 7 years. I look forward to meeting you in my classes!






Jamie Barnes
Jamie photoI have been teaching fitness classes for 5 years and teach High Fitness, Barre, Pump and Senior Fitness. I currently teach a lovely group of senior women in the Garden Park sub-association community. Fitness classes are my "me time". I love the music, the moves and the connection to the participants. Even though it is my job, I never feel like I'm working!







Jessy Blankenstein
As a playful free spirit, I can often be found outside playing in some form; anything from gardening to playing in the mountains. My soul longs to be outside exploring and adventuring with my husband and 3 boys. I have been teaching yoga for more than 8 years, and my practice has helped me grow stronger, more flexible and inspired, both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires me to live each moment more mindfully. I completed my 200 hour YTT in 2013 and was trained in paddle board yoga in 2015. I am also trained in trauma sensitive yoga. I will always be a student of the practice and am deeply grateful for the loving wisdom I have gained through many great teachers.I love to combine creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness and a dose of inspiration to help you deepen your practice. I seek to help others thrive in life by nurturing body, mind and soul, and my hope is that you step away feeling physically refreshed, spiritually nourished and mentally balanced. 
Tyson Brooks
I have lived in Daybreak since 2005 with my wife and kids, with whom I love spending time. I graduated with my bachelor's degree from the University of Utah in Behavioral Science and Health. I am an avid cyclist during all seasons and I love skiing in the winter. I have taught more than 1,000 indoor cycling classes in a span of 10 years.  My favorite sporting event is De Ronde van Vlaanderen followed by Paris-Roubaix. I love David Goggins and Jocko Wilink so there is a good chance you will hear me quote one of them during one of our indoor cycle classes. 
Brooke Stapleton
I have lived in Daybreak for more than five years and have been in Utah for almost ten years (although my Northern Idaho pride remains strong!). I grew up playing sports and felt a giant void in my life when those ended. I missed the feeling of being part of a team and exercising with them. This led me to group fitness and I have not looked back since. I love fitness and love the bonds made in the group fitness room. Outside of fitness, I love being a mom, being outside (hiking, water skiing, swimming) and being inside (reality TV is one of my great loves).
Sherrie Pacheco
I have been certified in and have taught group fitness for 33 years. I have taught step, spin, pump, pound, TRX, dance, water and hot Pilates, to name a few. I love teaching at Daybreak and love my students here! It's been more than 10 years since I started teaching in Daybreak and my favorite event is our annual Halloween thriller dance party. I have also been a NASM personal trainer for 10 years. Aside from teaching, I love to roller skate with my step students from Daybreak and play with my 5 grandkids. My husbands' homemade Mexican food is the best and makes for a lovely meal on our patio. My personal preferred group fitness class is hot yoga.
Karisa Sepp
As a certified group fitness instructor, I have been teaching fitness classes since 2003.  My love for movement began early through dance and eventually evolved into instructing group fitness classes.  Some of my favorite formats I have taught include strength, barre, High Fitness, kickboxing, HIIT, TRX, sports conditioning, step and dance fitness.  In addition to fitness, overall health and wellness has always been an interest of mine.  I have a degree in Health Promotion and Education, and years of experience working as a community health educator and health promotion program manager.  When not at the gym, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children.  As a family, we enjoy traveling and skiing/snowboarding together.  I also enjoy running, cake decorating and crafting.
Aly Brooks
I think nothing feels better than feeling strong.  Ever since I was a kid, I was always an athlete.  I was the girl racing the boys at recess and climbing the goalposts,  As a teen and into college, I lived and breathed volleyball and thrived on athletic competition. I have maintained my passion for fitness.  In 2005, I started competing in triathlons and later founded a race management company. Since then, I have organized triathlons (including the Daybreak Triathlon) for the past 11 years.  I am certified in group fitness, indoor
cycling and yoga.  My favorite thing about teaching at the DCC is that I get to do it with my husband, Tyson, and make amazing friends.  I absolutely love seeing class participants get strong, fall in love with fitness and gain a better appreciation for what their bodies can do!
Rebecca Pratt
KarisaI grew up here in Utah and have lived in Daybreak for 12 years now. When I'm not out having fun with my favorite person (my hubby Brian) you can find me in a spin class. Music is a big driving force for me when I work out, that is one of the main reasons I got certified in spin - so I could control the music in the spin room. I love moving to the beat of the music on my bike and working hard. Along with spin class, you will see me sub the HIIT and pump classes here at the Community Center. Outside of fitness, I love reading, music, scary movies, broadway, going out to eat and traveling to places that have a beach. I love to meet new people and introduce them to the awesome workout that a spin class will give so come give it a try!!
