If there’s one thing that sets obé (far) above the rest, it’s our A-to-Z, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink variety. From Dance HIIT to Restorative Yoga and everything in between, our workout class types range from (super) high intensity to very chill vibes.
Our class types fall into four categories: Cardio, Strength Training, Yoga, and Activate/Recover. To help you quickly locate the type of class you’re looking for on the app or on the web, use the “Class Category” filter in our on-demand library filtering system! Whether you’re craving cardio, need an active recovery day, or wondering what counts as strength training, you can find exactly what you want in our on-demand library.
Check out the charts below each category to see where each workout class type falls on an intensity and impact scale (plus some exceptions to the rule), plus get a deeper dive into what you can expect from each class!
Cardio Workout Classes
HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) is the ideal workout if you’re short on time. Get ready for short periods of intense movement alternated with rest—a format that builds serious strength and cardiovascular health. Burpees, anyone?
DANCE HIIT is everything you love about Dance Cardio combined with high-intensity circuits. It’s fast-paced, upbeat, and super sweaty. Plus, tap into the benefits of building muscle strength combined with cardio bursts. Win-win!
DANCE CARDIO is the perfect combination of choreo and cardio. These moves will elevate your heart rate, enhance your coordination, and increase your stamina. Plus, who doesn’t love a dance party? P.S. Read 5 reasons dance classes are the ultimate for your mind and body, here.
BOXING is where you can really blow off some steam. This full-body workout combines boxing combos with bursts of high-intensity cardio training. Expect lots of sweat and mood-boosting endorphins!
BOUNCE is a trampoline-based workout that’s low-impact—but don’t let that fool you. It’s also high-intensity! This mood-boosting class combines nostalgia with a killer workout that will leave you breathless while building strength. Learn more about the benefits of Bounce workouts—and the different types we offer.
RIDE brings high-intensity, low-impact cardio to your bike—any bike. These beat-based rides will get your heart pumping (and sweat dripping) as you cycle through intervals and hills, with some follow-along choreography to boost your endurance—and mood.

JUMP is a high-intensity, low-impact cardio workout class that will boost your endurance and leave you glistening. Perfect as a fiery warm-up, a companion to Strength or Power classes, or a solo cardio push, Jump is also ideal for travel or working out with limited equipment. Learn why we’re obsessed with this class, here.
STEP is a low-impact, high-intensity cardio class that will challenge your body and mind. Moving to the beat, you’ll follow fun cardio-only or cardio-plus-sculpt sequences that leave you sweating and strong. Step bench required!
ENDURANCE raises your heart rate with athletic yet lower-impact moves (think: jabs, skaters, and walkouts) and recovery between rounds. Expect to work for longer periods but at a more moderate pace than in HIIT, so you’ll feel breathless but not completely taxed.
Strength Training Workout Classes
SCULPT focuses on toning and lengthening your muscles with high-repetition sequences that fatigue them all the right ways (with a side of cardio!). Get ready to pulse and feel the burn—that’s how you know it’s working.
PILATES is all about strengthening your powerhouse (aka your core), increasing stability, and improving posture using body weight and light resistance. Warning: this no-to-low-impact class might feel easy at first, but it will get spicy!
BARRE is a low-impact, high-intensity combo derived from Ballet, featuring elements of Yoga, Pilates, plus a touch of cardio. Expect improved flexibility, posture, and full-body strength building—no ballet experience required. Learn more here.
STRENGTH is the ultimate functional training class, using resistance to build strength and improve your overall performance. Grab your gear, set up your station, and get ready to train.
POWER takes a Strength class and throws speed into the mix, combining heavy weights with explosive movement to improve muscular and cardiovascular strength. If you want to level up, this is how you do it. Learn more about the difference between Strength and Power workout classes here.
Yoga + Activate/Recover Classes
VINYASA YOGA is composed of vinyasa flows designed to build heat, loosen your muscles, and build strength.
YOGA SCULPT is your yoga practice turned up a notch. Using light weights, you’ll flow through strength and toning movements that target all the major muscle groups. It’s your mind-body practice with extra sweat.
RESTORATIVE YOGA is all about prioritizing you. Rooted in the yin yoga tradition, it focuses on holding longer, restorative poses so you can recharge and practice self-care. Grab your favorite pillow or cozy blanket, and focus on your breath as you sink in.
STRETCH is your post-workout go-to. Make time to reconnect to your body and improve mobility, flexibility, and overall performance. Did we mention it feels really good on your muscles? If you’re not sure if you “need” to stretch, read why everyone should be stretching more often.
MEDITATION is the ultimate you-time. Follow our guides to clear your head, improve focus, and melt away your stress. Start your day with a session or end the day on a good note—whenever you choose to make the time, it’s worth it.
