Hot August Workouts

August, 2019 can be a red letter month for you. It can also make you red hot. According to Mayo Clinic and Pritikin Longevity Center, the heat of summer demands attention from exercisers. Precaution is the word of the month: 1) Do not exercise in the heat of the day; 2) Drink adequate amount of water all day long, not just during work-out sessions; 3) Exercise with moderation; 4) Pay attention to signs of heat fatigue, such as light-headedness, dizziness, headache, muscle cramps, nausea or rapid heartbeat. Exercising in moderation is particularly important in August. 

Instructor JoRene understands the rigors of Hot August Workouts and tailor designs class routines with respect to weather and exercise enthusiasts. You are invited to come, exercise and discover what a difference summer work-outs make in your over-all well being. 

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.

Word to the wise: For your safety, good balance and lateral movement are needed for quick aerobic moves. 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!
