Every Tuesday and Thursday — Exercise Group CANCELLED
The Exercise group meets in Gregory Gym (the north studio on the first floor) from 8:30 to 9:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. To participate, you need to join Rec Sports; there is a 50% discount for retirees. Experienced exercise instructors Sandy Erickson and Linda Brown lead us in a variety of exercises designed for all ages and fitness levels. These include balance work, stretches, yoga and low-impact pilates, using exercise balls, hand weights, thera-bands and BOSU balls. We have men and women members of a wide range of fitness levels. Our instructors can adapt the exercises for anyone with special needs. This is a small, friendly group that welcomes new members. If you are a person who has resisted caring for your physical needs, come and check us out. Do not be intimidated. If you aren’t a member of Rec Sports, you can join at their office just inside the entrance to Gregory Gym. Or you can buy a one-time pass and try out the class before deciding whether to join..
