Strengthen & Tone
This program is offered virtually. Members can register through our weekly newsletter.
A mosaic of modalities is brought to you every week as this class incorporates elements of High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), yoga-inspired balance and stretch techniques, aerobics fun, and some much-needed love for your toes. All of this, paired with the facilitator’s comedic and encouraging commentary will leave your body feeling toned and strengthened, and your mind feeling relaxed and energized.
The World Health Organization recommends at least 2 days a week of strengthening exercises and at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity activity to support those living with cancer, as well as for cancer risk reduction. Join us once a week to get 60 minutes in!
