Have you been thinking about starting a workout routine, but just don’t know where to start? Maybe you already have a fitness routine but aren’t seeing results or getting satisfaction from it. Regardless of the reason, if you are looking to start or change your routine, it’s important to consider the different aspects of a well-rounded fitness plan. There are many types of training out there, and it can be confusing and difficult to navigate where to begin, how to structure a routine, and how to choose the right kind of exercise for you.
In this pop-up class event, personal trainer Brent Haddock will take you through 30 minutes of strength training exercises and 30 minutes of stretching. These foundational strengthening and stretching movements form the building blocks of a balanced exercise routine. This class will give you a taste of our Balanced Living Program for healthy and sustainable weight management (receive $200 off when you sign up in January). The class will be the same on both Saturdays.
In honor of National Women’s Health and Fitness Day, Heather Walther will teach a fitness class in the Oak Room that emphasizes the importance of variety in exercise. The first 30 minutes of the class will focus on strength training and sculpting; the next 20 minutes will incorporate yoga and stretching, and the last 10 minutes will include myofascial release. Heather will talk about her intention as a fitness instructor to help women support their body and its tissues, not beat it up or burn it out. Her goal is to help women stay as active as possible for as long as possible, avoiding injury and loving the exercise they do along the way.
