Today is the first class. So far it is just me, Cathy, and Irati. We are planning to do this every
Thursday, so if you live in and around Soap Lake or Ephrata and want to join up, let me know via the comments section. Right now, we are doing it at my house, and space is limited. If there is a lot of interest, we can move outdoors in a few weeks.
Why Exercise Groups Work
Even if you enjoy working out and getting exercise, joining a class or group workout can help add structure and commitment to your routine. When life gets busy, often the first thing we cut back on is going to the club, or making time for exercise in general. When you have joined a group or class, you know people are counting on you to be there and and be a part of the support system.
Fitness Group Focus
The focus of our particular group is centered on individual capabilities and fitness goals.For example, one person might want to focus on balance and core strength, while another focuses on aerobic improvement, or flexibility.
By selecting fitness workouts that are easily modified to suit each person, we think we will experience the greatest benefit.
General Health and Wellness
Increasing strength, flexibility, and aerobic stamina even just a little can reap great health rewards, such as the reduction in daily stress levels. Being able to move freely to do daily activities such as bringing in the groceries and chasing after the kids, and even just getting in and out of the car brightens your outlook on everything. Being able to move around with a feeling of muscle control, strength, balance, and increased energy levels helps you to get things accomplished in a timely manner, which also reduces stress.
Why not live well and in wellness today. Breathe deeply, get some fresh air and sunshine, eat some healthy food, and enjoy life more than ever before.
