Summer at the Studio
By Darnelle Monday, 2 July 2012
We know you can’t tell from the weather but summer is here. (We are only aware of it because our kids are out of school.) Even though we know you will be camping, visiting family, beach combing, exploring, cycling, hiking and all sorts of other fun outdoor activities over the next few weeks, we wanted to maintain our full schedule of classes. Not only because we’ll miss seeing your beautiful, smiling faces but because it is really important to maintain your fitness over the holidays! No excuses!
In addition to the regular drop in classes which include various yoga, strength and conditioning classes, early morning FitCamps and all the other usual menu items, we are also offering a few special classes and programs.
Wow! Weightloss A 10 week weight loss support group led by a registered holistic nutritionist. The program focuses on eating whole foods, education, exercise and support. The group will meet at the studio on Thursday evenings at 6pm. First meeting on July 19th. Check out Zest Family Nutrition http://www.zestfamilynutrition.com/ for details.
