Fitness Update by Mandy (10-30-12)
This summer was our first season of running a fitness program in our fitness room, and we had a positive experience. In our group training class, we had workouts that emphasized flexibility and balance, strength and conditioning, and overall well-being. The members and I enjoyed our time together early in the mornings, and our mutual motivation kept the group going even through the dog days of July and August. With that fulfilling experience, we will progress and hold a class starting in January and continuing through March as part of a post-holiday recovery plan. The classes will be similar in scope with strength training and creative forms of conditioning to keep us engaged and interested. Level of fitness is not important—we will adjust the workout to your needs. So after you have fully enjoyed the holidays and all they have to offer, come and join us for a good few months of fitness and cleansing! Right now the class will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-7AM with an additional class pending availability. Personal training is always available upon request. With any questions and to sign-up for the class, please contact me, Mandy, at 603-321-6541 or email@example.com.
As we gently transition through fall, the weather gets a bit cooler and our summer activities have taken a sharp halt. However, that does not mean that we cannot take advantage of all that fall has to offer. So layer-up and get outside and moving in the brisker air in one of the following ways:
· New England is truly one of the most beautiful places on Earth during this time of year. Break out that bike that has been in the shed and go for a ride with a family member. Take a walk around the neighborhood. Play outside with the kids.
· Mines Falls is a gem in this town. Walk or run through the trails that we are so lucky to have preserved for us.
· Take a Saturday and clean out the basement. Not only will you get a great workout carrying boxes up and down the stairs, but you will also appreciate the newly cleared space.
· Every morning, dedicate whatever time you have, whether it be 30 minutes or 5 minutes, to a yoga routine, some body-weight exercises, or meditation—all of which are beneficial for the body and mind.
· Borrow some snowshoes! Once it starts snowing, it does not mean we should hibernate. If you can get your hands on some snowshoes you can really work the leg muscles and learn to appreciate the loveliness of the snowfall.
· Explore a new yoga studio or other forms of exercise. Tai chai, qi gong, martial arts, and boxing are all great ways to change up a repetitive routine.
