Jan. 23: The Campbellsport Public Library along with Tracie Schanen of Harmony Fitness & Nutrition is presenting an eight-week course about making positive lifestyle changes. Each week, starting Jan. 16 at 7:15 p.m. we will briefly discuss some positive and easy changes that you can make towards eating a healthier diet. After a question and answer period about the nutrition topic of the evening we will be doing an audience participation introduction to various forms of exercise.
During the second session on Wednesday, Jan. 23, participants will get an introduction to strength-training by using a stability ball and resistance bands. Instead of using weights we will use flat bands and resistance bands with handles to work large muscle groups for strengths and endurance. If you have stability ball please bring it along with you to class. The healthy eating discussion will focus on keeping a food journal. A three-day food journal will show you what your pattern is for eating, which will make you aware of what you need to change or add. You will learn about the different varieties of fat in your diet and which ones to avoid and which ones you need to burn fat.
All exercises will be lead in a format that will ensure that everyone will succeed! Participants will be shown how to modify all exercises to ensure that they are getting a safe, fun and beneficial introduction to all forms of the exercises that are being presented. We urge participants to attend all the programs to get the full benefits of the series but if there are only certain exercise formats that interest you, please feel free to come to only those classes. Registration is appreciated. See info. below.
