Tandem Studios Fitness began with the idea of running fitness classes concurrent to each child dance class to help busy parents fit everything into their demanding schedules. While we have stayed true to the initial format, fitness has also expanded to include anyone interested in working out in smaller more personal classes with no contract commitment and flexible drop in card system. Tandem Studios Fitness is a way to truly achieve your healthy lifestyle goals! Take part in our “Tandem Fitness Classes” (running at the same time as your child’s class) OR join our “Strictly Fitness” program for those without children. Our small class sizes and knowledgeable instructors will ensure you get the personal attention you need.
Group classes at Tandem are known for being high energy, motivating, and a challenge for all levels.

Our instructors have undergone top training in their field and have been through a rigorous screening process to be able to bring you fun and innovative classes. The focus of our fitness instructors is to help you achieve your goals whatever they may be. Exercise is their passion and it shines through in every class!
