Every Monday at 5:15 pm in the upper level of the gym Mrs. Stacy instructs the Ultimate Abs class. The class is focused on strength training exercises and burning the fat in your abs. The class is an hour or an hour and fifteen minutes long, and the exercises target your back as well as your core. You need a lot of endurance to complete the workouts, but you will feel excellent every time you do the specialized exercises. If you are not targeting a specific area of your body, then the Yoga class is for you. The yoga class is every Wednesday at 5:15 pm.
Just like the Ultimate Abs class, the Yoga class is an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes long. Yoga is all about flexibility and releasing tension in your body. It is extremely peaceful and focuses on breathing and relaxation. The people who have attended the class with me were extremely satisfied at how relaxed and at peace they were.
“Yoga stretches muscles and parts of your body that do not get used often such as your lower back, I like that the exercises are designed to relieve stress as well as mental and physical tension. The exercise is not as intense”- Emily Haney.
I can personally attest that these exercise classes will help improve your mental and physical health and relieve the pressures of school.
