Zoom is an online, live video streaming service that you can access for free. Just click the link for your class. It’s pretty user-friendly, but if you need help please click here for an online tutorial.
Currently, the following classes are being offered via Zoom. We will add more classes to the schedule in the days to come.
We require registration before class begins.
This process will take about 1 minute and allows us to collect information about who is attending our classes, which will be critical for the J to advocate for funding that will sustain us through this closure. Please allow a few extra moments to fill out this information before class begins!

Bodypump can be done at home with minimal or no equipment. While having a bar, weights, or dumbbells is ideal in increasing the intensity of the workout, using no equipment (body weight) can be an effective workout. A bench is not necessary!! Be creative with household items to increase the intensity. The body movements alone provide for a great workout. Here are some equipment alternatives for the 10 tracks in a BODYPUMP class:
Grab a broom or mop! Lots of deadlifts, dead rows, overhead presses in the warmup. You can also use dumbbells if you have them. You should never do heavy weight for this track.
Your body weight is plenty with this heavy repetition tracks designed to work your glutes, quads, hamstrings. But if you want to increase the intensity, grab a gallon water jug and squat with it!
Stack some heavier books for this track and aim right at the rib cage. We will also do some chest pushups which require no weights. Use dumbbells if you have them. You can also use cans for chest presses. A broom works too.
You can use a broom/mop for the deadlift and dead row, and have 2 one-gallon jugs for the clean and press or push press. Use dumbbells if you have them.
No dumbbell? No problem. Grab those books again for extensions and presses, have smaller water bottles for triceps kickback and get ready to use your body weight for triceps pushup
Fill 2 plastic grocery bags with boxed items and use those for bicep curls!
Your bodyweight is plenty. See Squat recommendations
grab some water bottles for deltoid and side raises. Grab that gallon jug for the upright row and overhead press.
Crunches, cross crawls, hip bridges OH MY. No weight required
Chillax and stretch this one out
