August 2019 Classes
This is the month when many of us are busy with family and community events, and hiking/biking/road trips, but I don’t want you to lose your edge! We’ve been working hard the last few months on increasing our cardio fitness, power and strength, so in August we’ll get together on Mondays at 5:30 p.m. for a “Fitness Fusion” format that includes high intensity interval training and weight work. Join us!
Regular workouts will return after Labor Day.
Questions? Please call or text me: (360) 466-8754.
Group workouts are at the Concrete Theatre: 45920 Main Street, Concrete Washington. Each class is $5 each. You’re welcome to pay by the week, month, or one at a time. Your first workout is free. Workouts are 45 minutes long and can be modified to suit any fitness level. All equipment is provided. Please bring water.
Group Workouts with Drama
We like to take advantage of our unique workout space to add some drama to your life! You won’t find the typical gym environment here (because after all, we’re inside the historic Concrete Theatre!). No white sterile walls like in a medical office; no mirrors to distract or disturb us; no bright lights that make you feel like you’re on display.
The lighting is subdued, our leaders are on the stage so you can easily follow the workout, and you have the option of sitting down in a theatre seat if you need to rest (sorry, no popcorn!).
Despite the drama, though, you’ll get a great workout that focuses on strength, power and cardiovascular endurance. And you’ll get the best results: with consistency, you’ll become healthier, leaner and more confident.
Fun, Fast, Friendly Group Workouts
Workouts can be adapted to any fitness level – don’t let fear stop you in your tracks! Each of us has our own limitations and our own strengths. Let’s work together to be as powerful and healthy as we can. Your first class is free. Contact me if you have any questions or need more details at any time.
