PLPOA to hold demo class at recreation center

Group exercise programming upholds its reign of relevance at the Pagosa Lakes Recreation Center by continually providing members with unrivaled motivation, challenge and support.

Most people achieve their exercise goals faster — and stick with exercise longer — when they’re in?a social environment.

How so??

For one, group exercise offers fresh and intriguing options to people who become easily bored with the same routine. Secondly, there’s nothing like the encouragement and pleasure derived from working with your exercise buddies that keep members coming back for more.

?Group exercise programs at the recreation center are accessible to a variety of demographics, and it promotes wellness. You know, don’t you, that fitness is becoming a very important part of healthcare? There are still an incredibly large number of people in our community who can benefit from the healthy lifestyles facilitated by our recreation center and its cadre of experienced, certified fitness instructors. Maybe one of them is you.

The recreation center is putting on a free demonstration class that will incorporate a wide variety of disciplines — a sampling of classes currently offered. Each of the different instructors will lead the demonstration class for 10-15 minutes in a routine that highlights what they teach. You will walk away knowing which class (Zumba, Qi-Gong, Pilates, spinning, Yoga, etc.) you are excited to get involved with.

This demonstration class is scheduled for Thursday, April 12, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Come prepared to participate.

Who should attend? Anyone who enjoys exercise en masse, likes social interaction and values trained instructors. In other words, almost everyone. And it is free.

Certification of our instructors helps ensure safety and quality instruction. These instructors also undergo continuing education that exposes them to ongoing innovations — allowing them to bring vigor and vitality to group exercise.

Call the recreation center at 731-2051 with your questions regarding this demonstration class.

Get energized — en masse.
