Cardio Strength for Fun & Functional Fitness
Cardio Strength for Fun & Functional Fitness

with Laurie Short


This 24 station circuit provides a variety of total body integrated strength, aerobic and core training exercises. It uses a wide variety of small equipment including medicine balls, scooter, tubing, steps, hoops, cones, agility rings and ladders, and stability balls.  This program is accessible to all participants—you perform as many reps as YOU can do in 35 seconds, and then move to the next station. The class starts with a warm-up of 8 to 10 minutes followed by 10 minutes of strength exercises. The circuit lasts 35 minutes and the program concludes with 5 – 6 minutes of stretching.

 

Requirements: one pair of 5 – 7 lb dumbbells, a water bottle, towel and mat. Cross training shoes are preferred since running shoes do not provide stability for lateral movements...dress to sweat! A materials/equipment $20 fee will be collected at the first class. Future participation in this program will require an additional $20 only ONCE each year from your initial enrollment date.

Meets Mondays and Thursdays

Chair Yoga - Seated and Standing Poses
Chair Yoga - Seated and Standing Poses

with Rosemary Martilotta

 

The primary aim of yoga is to restore the mind to simplicity and peace.  Unlike other forms of exercise which strain muscles and bones, yoga gently rejuvenates the body.  By restoring the body, yoga frees the mind from the negative feelings caused by the fast pace of modern life.  The practice of yoga fills up the reservoirs of hope and optimism within you.  It helps you overcome all obstacles on the path to perfect health and spiritual contentment.  It is a rebirth.

FALL PREVENTION - USE IT OR LOSE IT
FALL PREVENTION - USE IT OR LOSE IT

Fall Prevention for Seniors

Use It or Lose It

with Grace Rowan

 

Here is a sobering statistic: The CDC reports that falls are the leading cause of hospitalization for senior citizens, and half of those falls result in injury, many that are serious. The good news is that falls are preventable, and this program will help participants keep their bodies strong and healthy so they can avoid falling, and those potentially serious injuries.

 

This course incorporates exercise with recommendations for lifestyle changes and appropriate changes at home to reduce risk. Participants will learn balance and strength building exercises, how to improve posture and body alignment, and identify strategies to reduce their risk of falling. You will also get added benefits that this additional activity imparts—a boost in concentration, improved memory and mood, and more confidence in your own physical activity.

 

Your body adapts to inactivity—this course will help you be more active. Use It, Don’t Lose It!

GOLF FITNESS
GOLF FITNESS

with Jeff Edward Poplarski, D.C., LLC

 

Dr. Jeffrey Poplarski presents an 8-week Titleist Performance Golf Fitness Screening to enhance your golf game. The TPI certified instructor will screen each participant individually to determine swing faults, addressing posture, lower and upper body mobility and stability, balance and power. This program will target golf swing analysis and golf body mechanics.  The first class will consist of an evaluation of swing and body imbalances.  The remainder of the program will address any faults that are noticed.  Dr. Jeff does not believe there is one way to swing a club; he believes there are an infinite number of ways to swing a club. But he does believe that there is one efficient way for all golfers to swing a club and it is based on what you can do physically.

 

Dr. Jeff is the Wellness Director for the U.S. Open Golf Championships, Titleist Performance Golf Fitness Instructor, Medical Professional, Junior Coach, Golf Coach, and a “First Swing” golf instructor for the Eastern Amputee Golf Association.

Hatha Yoga
Hatha Yoga

with Rosemary Martilotta

 

Yoga is an ancient Eastern Indian system of balancing body, mind, and emotions. The goal of yoga is to have a peaceful, clear mind in a sound, healthy body.  Hatha Yoga is the aspect of Yoga that approaches this goal through the physical side of the individual.  The Yoga postures (asanas) work each part of the body to stretch and tone the muscles, increase fluidity in the joints, and promote flexibility of the entire skeletal system.  By releasing physical and mental tension, energy is increased, health is maintained, and a sense of well-being is created.  Please bring to class a yoga mat, a belt, 2 flat blankets, an empty stomach, and a smile.
