Pilates

Pilates focuses on strengthening your body’s “anatomical center” - your abdomen, lower body and buttocks.  Each movement stretches and strengthens the involved group, while opening the joints and releasing tension.

WALKTOBER

A 42-day walking program (Oct 1-Nov 11) in which participants keep track of their daily steps or minutes either individually or as part of a 4-10 person team. The goal is to create a consistent, lasting exercise habit (at least 30 minutes or 6000 steps a day). Daily health tips and recipes are included in the program, as well as links to fabulous health, fitness and fall foliage websites. A raffle will be held at the end of the program to celebrate individual/group goals. More information will follow soon and be posted to Fac/Staff Announcements.
