9-10 am @ Berger Center
Holiday Special events.

Ugly Holiday Sweater Day: Wednesday, Dec 19th. When the ridiculous becomes cool (and even in style) everyone gets to participate. At an ugly Holiday sweater party, we get to remove ourselves from the protocols and societal norms for a day. We get to let loose, take down all of the guards and just be…well… ridiculous. We all are ridiculous on some level, and to get to strut it around with pride makes everyone feel happy and accepted.”

Friday, Dec. 28th Holiday Potluck:
Sign up to bring a brunch dish. All kinds of quiches, casseroles, scones, bagels, and mimosas. Cheers!

New Year’s Resolutions: Yes! Classes on December 31 and Jan 2nd are ON!

Instructor appreciation gifts: As the holidays approach, it is time for us to think about a show of appreciation to all the Oakmont fitness instructors. They are working keep you healthy.
For JoRene Woodworth, our Free Fitness Instructor, a recommended monetary gift could be $20. If you have it in your heart to give extra… Cheers! We request that you enclose your gift in a Holiday card with kind words of appreciation. Tell her what you love about her…her great music, enthusiasm, laughter and especially share your personal stories with her.
Please put your contribution in the big gift bag on the welcome table. Micki and Dennis Sabourin will be collecting until Dec.19th and present your envelopes to JoRene on Dec. 21h.

Welcome to Free Fitness. Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind, and body. This Y class is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself and fostering connections with friends. In this class, it’s not about your fitness level as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.

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.

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!
