CRYSTAL LAKE – Invigorate mind and body with three fitness or recreation classes offered by McHenry County College’s Continuing Education Department.

The following classes are accepting registration:

• Xtend Barre: Xtend Barre sculpts the body proportionally so all body parts are equally challenged. Developed from a dance/Pilates background, the Xtend workout combines the results of dance with the principles of Pilates, while providing two cardio elements.
