Move into a more vibrant life of natural wellness! Come join us for positive support, safe low-impact aerobics, music and fun! You’ll boost your mood, burn fat, build stronger bones, improve your stamina and your heart and brain health.

Fitness levels 1, 2 and 3 are demonstrated so you can choose which one is right for you. Second half of class includes stretching, strengthening and guided relaxation for stress release. Get past whatever is holding you back and be the awesome person you are!  Equipment is provided. (This class includes some floor work at the Margaret Todd SeniorCenter location, and no floor work at the Goldenaires.)

If you have limited mobility and require a gentler option then check out my new Chair Aerobics class that started in January, 2011.

What are Aerobics?
Aerobic activities such as dancing, cycling, swimming and race-walking develop increased oxygen transportation and utilization. The word “aerobics” means “with oxygen” and indicates that the energy produced to do the work utilizes an oxygen system.

An ideal duration goal for aerobic exercise is 20-45 minutes, frequency of 3-5 times a week, based on your fitness level. Use the “talk-test” to check for ideal intensity level. You should be able to carry on a short conversation without becoming winded. If you can sing an opera,  you’re not working hard enough!  It is important to start your program slowly and gradually increase your exercise load.

“A man ninety years old was asked to what he attributed his longevity. I reckon, he said, with a twinkle in his eye, it’s because most nights I went to bed and slept when I should have sat up and worried.” ~ Dorthea Kent
