Stretch and strength aerobics

The Recreation Department is working with a new Instructor to start offering the Stretch and Strength Aerobics class again.

The class is set to start on Tuesday, Oct. 8 and run until mid-December with a break in between when the instructor will be out of town. The course will focus on strengthening principles to give the participants a well-balanced full body workout.

This fun, basic level class is for building and maintaining strength and is designed for folks who are working with low level one-to-four-pound hand weights.  Sessions include a 10-minute warm up, 40 minutes of strength conditioning and a 10-minute cool down stretch. The Tuesday classes are from 9-10 a.m. and the Thursday classes are from 9:15-10:15 a.m. at the Miners’ Union Hall.

We need a minimum number of registered participants to commit to the class before we can accommodate drop ins.  Please call our office to register.
