Income tax, property tax, sales tax, capital gains tax, kiddie tax, wealth tax, estate tax, corporate tax, city and county tax and the burden of being taxed all take their toil this month, or to whatever new date has been decreed for this year. We fret and stew, worry and wonder what we get for our money.

And then there’s exercise? It taxes the body, does it not? What do you get in return? Fitness, positive frame of mind and energy. With OHI Free Fitness classes, exercisers also get friends and a bit of socializing. Class member Tudy says, “I love JoRene’s class;  it is a great workout and I am dripping wet by the end.  I enjoy the chance to chat before and after class.” Exercise regular Joan Rumrill adds, “I’m so thankful that JoRene is providing us with Zoom exercise classes until we can return to normal classes at the Berger Center.  I’m there everyday that I’m at home.” She admits that being a workaholic took its toll, until she joined the (at that time,) “new” Oakland YMCA. “Then for the next  six years, I started every weekday morning with exercise from 6 to 8 am.  I began work at 9.  During those years, I was very fit and competed in several mini triathlons.”

Like taxes, exercise is for everyone. Monday and Wednesday OHI exercise classes welcomes men and women. We come for the exercise, we leave with the benefits. Tax-deductible donations are being accepted through Oakmont Community Foundation ( with OHI noted as beneficiary.
