Monday's cardio fusion class consists of movements with light
weights and proper form while staying in a target heart rate zone.
This increases metabolism in your resting state and burns fat
calories while you work -- low intensity!
Thursday's pilates class is rhythmic exercise all performed on a
mat. It is excellent for core and spinal strengthening.
Women who take advantage of the free screenings will also receive
a bag of information and a pedometer. Women who take advantage of
the free exercise classes have a chance to win a $50 gift
certificate toward a Rec Center membership!
