Your New Year’s Exercise Resolution Solution!

It’s January 1.  You’ve eaten and drunk way too much.  Time to pay the piper and make a resolution regarding your fitness and health.  But you might not be in peak condition or may have injuries or just plain haven’t exercised in a while.  What’s a person to do?

If you are looking for an gateway exercise program, perhaps Nia is for you.

Most folks aren’t familiar with Nia.  It is a no-impact, adjustable, safe way to get fit.  Safe moves to great music.  Based in therapeutic movement, Nia draws from the likes of tai chi, yoga, taekwando, Alexander Technique, Modern and Jazz.  All movements can be adapted to your physical level.  You can even do it in a chair or you can really ramp it up and get a great, safe. fun workout.  Here is a link showing founder, Debbie Rosas with her latest routine, Wild!

Come try Nia as a possible resolution solution.  First class is on me, just mention that you saw my post on Good Morning Gloucester.

Classes are held at Rose Baker Senior Center on Mondays at 1pm

At MAGMA on Thursdays at 10:15 am

At Manchester Athletic Club on Mondays and Wednesdays at 8 am

Hope to see you soon!
