New Year-New You Class

Please join us on New Year’s Day – for a fun and festive way to ring in the new year! This class is from 9:00 – 10:15 a.m. in the Cordata gym on January 1st. It will include Zumba, Dance jam, Strength and Stretching, plenty of laughs and sweat! See you there! Note: This is the only class offered on New Year Day so no excuses!


Our new cycling program “REVOLUTION” is up and running! We have been thrilled with the way things are ?rolling?out! It’s been going so well we’ve decided to add another evening class on Thursday nights from 5:45 – 6:45 p.m. taught by Liza.

Jeremy, the program director, is currently monitoring the class sizes, and working on the most effective way to handle any full cycling classes we might have. Here are a few reminders if you are taking the class:

  • Let the instructor know if it?s your first time, so they can get you set up properly on the bike.
  • You cannot reserve a bike for anyone else. You need to physically be in the building to take a class.
  • If you see a new member coming in to take the class, please welcome them to BAC. We realize how difficult it is coming in for the first time when you don’t know the routine.

Because the Downtown studio is the only place we can offer cycling classes, we are moving the 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. RIPPED/HIIT class to the Cordata gym. Jeri and Heather will continue to teach this class and are excited to have more room for options and hoping to get more new faces in the class over the New Year. If you have any questions about any of our classes, please look up the class descriptions on our BAC website.

We also want to welcome Frederica to our Yoga staff! Freddie is teaching a class at the Downtown club from 6:45 – 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday nights. If you haven’t taken her class yet, please check it out! And if it’s your first Yoga class, just let her know before you begin, so she can go over any options you might need. Enjoy the holiday season? and we look forward to seeing you in the studio!

We are very excited to introduce our new Studio Cycling program at the Downtown Club. We are proud to announce that Jeremy Lemke is heading up this new cycling experience. He has issued the following invitation to all BAC members and guests: “Come Rev it up at Bellingham Athletic Club’s all new Indoor Cycling class called Revolution. Don’t let the cold and rainy season put a damper on your training. Indoor cycling is an excellent way to keep your cardiovascular fitness up in a low impact heart pumping activity. Revolution will take members through specific drills that are designed to build strength and muscle endurance. Take your training to the next level through timed intervals where you will learn to fly on the flats, jog up-and-down mixed terrains and attack on a hill. This class is designed to benefit someone who has not been on a bike in years to the avid cyclist. Revolution will mimic the outdoor riding experience in a high intensity, energetic, and friendly environment that will push you to be your best. Check the schedule for a class time that works best for you and come check it out!”
