Half-way through the first month of resolutions!

Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind, and body.

If Resolution #1 was to begin an exercise program…and you came to one or two of JoRene’s classes, good for you! If those classes left you sore and tired, join the group. It’s normal. You’ll gain stamina as you gain strength. And remember this advice: always exercise at your own pace.

As recommended last Oakmont News, you will benefit from greeting two other persons and tell them, “this was tough and I’ll see you next class.” You’ll be glad you did!

However…here’s the fine print: For your safety, good balance and lateral movement are needed in these quick aerobic classes. A fall may cause serious injury. Please check with your doctor prior to beginning this or any exercise regimen.

All Free Fitness Classes are too large to accommodate those who need special supervision. If you have shoulder, back, knee problems, anything that is painful, it is advisable to join a smaller, well-supervised class first, and consult a personal trainer or medical professional to learn modifications that are suitable to your condition. Participants need to use their judgment and body awareness…altering each exercise to prevent injury.  Be careful, dear ones. Welcome!

Equipment:  Non-skid yoga mats, knee pad, 3# hand weights, athletic shoes that are supportive but not too grippy. Water bottle – hydration revitalizes.

Fragrance-Free, please. Share the floor with kindness.
