Join us in the Oak Room for a pop-up class with Dr. Jason Biondo, chiropractor and Director of Fitness at PALM Health. This class will target movements that are foundational to building a healthy back and balanced core. Dr. Biondo will focus on spine stability, mobility, and endurance, as well as functional movements of the hips and lower body that demonstrate the kinetic linkage of the human body.
You know it. You’ve felt it. You’ve dealt with it. Low back pain can be a real downer, whether you’re feeling it when you’re sitting, standing, or moving around. You aren’t alone — low back pain is the second most common cause of disability in the US. Almost a third of American adults are afflicted with back pain, and among them, 85% suffer from low back pain that is non-specific, mechanical, and without a detectable cause.
As your body ages, it can become harder to do high-level activities such as running. Come join Ashley Kumar, physical therapist and personal trainer, in this runners-specific pop-up class, during which you will learn how to cross-train to prevent injuries that are common among runners. You’ll learn how to become injury-resilient with optimal trunk, pelvis, and hip control. Be sure to come in your workout clothes, because you and Ashley will be working together to put these exercises into action right away!
Why should you stretch? Your first thought may be, “to become more flexible.” Understandably, many people discount stretching for this reason, since it is not everyone’s goal to become more flexible. But stretching is one of the most important things you can do for your body's health and fitness.
It’s easy to go through daily life without even thinking about what your body is doing. Going up and down the stairs, doing laundry, picking up your child or grandchild, or even exercising are routine activities that your body becomes used to performing. But it’s often activities like these that can lead to imbalances or even injury if your muscles — particularly your core — aren’t properly engaged and stabilized.
Have you been thinking about starting a workout routine, but just don’t know where to start? 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. 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.
Exercise and fitness are essential for healthy living, but sometimes we can get lost in how to prioritize our fitness endeavors. From corrective exercises to cardio, or strength training to yoga, the options are vast. During this webinar, Dr. Jason Biondo will focus on how to develop a personalized exercise program relative to your goals. He will look at some of the latest trends and literature and how this can support you on your fitness journey.

If you feel stiff and unstable in your daily activities, if you work out frequently but would like to expand your range of motion, or if you are completely brand-new to exercise, this sequence of stretching poses is for you. In this webinar, personal trainer Cindy Vickers takes you through a series of yoga-like exercises you can do with a hard back chair to help you stretch your body, strengthen your muscles, and develop increased flexibility and stability.
Ladies: you’ve probably heard all about the hot flashes, mood swings, and physical changes that are all part of the inevitable process of menopause. Maybe you’ve even started experiencing some of these things. If you have, you’re certainly not alone. One of the most common changes women notice during this time is weight gain or redistribution, particularly around the middle. Though it can be a frustrating time for your mind and body, it doesn’t have to dictate your quality of life beyond menopause.
