Featured class: R.I.P.P.E.D.®

 
girl with weights
Meet senior Rhoda Karagiannis. She teaches R.I.P.P.E.D., an exercise format that combines Resistance, Interval, Power, Plyometrics, Endurance, core and Diet. 

Challenge yourself to try R.I.P.P.E.D. with Rhoda or any of our talented instructors this month! Fitness members get access to unlimited group fitness classes at the Rec Center. We offer over 100 classes every week!

My name is Rhoda Karagiannis and I am senior studying Finance and Management Information Systems (MIS). 

I am from the Astoria, Queens. 

Why should I try R.I.P.P.E.D.?
It’s a full body workout that you can do in one hour! You can adjust it to fit your fitness level, so whether you're new to fitness or a pro gym rat, you’ll get a great workout.

Why do you like being a group fitness instructor?
Health and fitness are my biggest passions, so I love being able to share that on a larger scale. I also enjoy teaching people how to exercise effectively and safely.

Any tips for group fitness newbies?
Don’t be shy or embarrassed to go all out! Everyone in the class is there for the same reason and focused on their own workout. If you have any questions, ask your instructor after class. We are more than happy to speak with you.
