Every summer, Hot August Nights is an event held in Nevada cities Reno and Virginia City. Pre-1970 cars and Rock n Roll are the main attractions. But if you can’t get to Nevada, you can still enjoy old cars, trucks and RVs and music here at Oakmont.
The car show is only once a year, however three times every week you can give your pre-1970 body its fill of Rock n Roll (and much more) when you come to the OHI Free Fitness class. Music fills the soul, and also the sole and heel, the feet and legs, the core and arms, the face and mind. Music invites movement and movement is the basis of fitness. Class regular Linda Suhr says, “I began exercising in my late 40s because I was starting to gain a little weight. It so happened that a work colleague offered a free early morning aerobics class. Energetic movement to music…I was hooked!” To know Linda is to know OHI isn’t the only source of her exercise. She also leads Free Yoga classes, walks her pooch, and adds, “I also love hiking in our amazing local parks.”
Come to a class or two and see if like Linda, you too get “hooked.”
Disclaimer for all:
Equipment for JoRene’s class: Non-skid mats, 3# hand weights, athletic shoes (supportive but not too grippy,) and a 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. Check with your doctor before beginning 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!
