FITNESS CORNER AT THE

Thank you to Candace Lambert, Staton Shed, Angel Carter, Ann Karnes , Byron Stephens. Carlos Ojeda, and all the other volunteers who helped putting together our Tour of Lights. It was a great event again!

What - Your fun and fit kick off to the New Year! 2 different types of introductory group fitness classes that are way different than what you've done before. (1) Playtime - come connect with nature and your inner kid as we work up a sweat and breathe hard (with minimal to no impact) with some childhood games and movements. (2) Intro to kettlebells - Renee is passionate about these versatile and highly effective tools that improve cardio and strength at the same time in a super short work out. She will go over what they are and why everyone on the planet should use them to have fun and get fit Where - Park at the entrance to the RBC. Meet at the sand volleyball court dressed in layers, with plenty of water Who should join the fun - anyone of any level of fitness who wants to have a blast while improving your health. Especially those willing to try something new and ramp up your energy! Who's the trainer - Renee Geist has lived in the RBC for three years with her husband, 2 small children and 2 dogs. She received her first personal trainer and group fitness certification in 1996 and has recently left the corporate world to return to one on one personal training and group classes full time. She is certified by the International Kettlebell and Fitness Association and is completing her American Council on Exercise certification. She has her own LLC, Renegade Inside Out Solutions, and is a strong advocate of health and overall success coming from your center - physically and philosophically. Cost - for the introductory sessions, the entrance "fee" is a donation to Save the Children (savethechildren.org). Subsequent class rates will be shared by Renee post class. When - See below

GOOD NEIGHBORS CAN BE GREAT FOR STRESS LEVELS

Do you live in a neighborhood where you feel safe and connected to others, or do you feel overcrowded, threatened, and otherwise unsafe in your surroundings? This, and other aspects of neighborhood life, can impact both your level of happiness and stress. Socializing: With our busy schedules, we don’t always see friends as often as we’d like. For a bit of socializing that takes only minutes out of your day, it’s nice to stop and chat with people for a few minutes on your way out to your car. And the more people you have available for shared social support, the better, generally speaking. Pooled Resources: I know people in some more-friendly neighborhoods who share dinners, minimizing the effort it takes to cook. Others trade fruit from their trees. A neighbor who borrows a few eggs may come back with a plate of cookies that the eggs helped create. Knowing your neighbors increases everyone’s ability to share. Security: Knowing the people around you can bring a sense of security. If you need something--whether it’s a cup of sugar when you’re baking cookies, or someone to call the police if they see someone lurking ourside your home--it’s nice to know you can depend on those around you and they can depend on you. Home Pride: Knowing the people who live around you provides a strengthened sense of pride in your home and neighborhood.

Coming home just feels nicer. While you may not be able to change the neighborhood in which you live, you can change the experience you have in your own neighborhood by getting more involved with those around you and taking pride in the area in which you live. The following are some ideas and resources that can help you to feel more at home in your neighborhood: Get Out More: If you live in a generally safe area, I highly recommend taking a morning or evening walk. It’s a great stress reliever that also allows you to get to know many of your neighbors, get an understanding of who lives where, and feel more at home in your surroundings. Smile: It’s simple enough, but if you’re not in the habit of smiling and giving a friendly hello to the people you encounter in your neighborhood, it’s a good habit to start. While not everyone will return the friendliness immediately, it’s a quick way to get to know people and build relationships, even if you’ve lived close for years and haven’t really said much to one another. Talk To Your Elders: The more veteran members of the neighborhood often have the inside scoop on the neighborhood. You may be surprised at how much you can learn if you stop to take the time to talk to the sweet old lady at the end of the block.
