Jamestown, NY – How many times have you made a resolution to get in shape, only to be overwhelmed by the challenges of realizing your goal?

If you’d like some help making exercise a priority, you’ll want to take part in Total Fitness at the Audubon Nature Center on Thursday morning, August 4.

Indoor Cycling Instructor and multi-sport outdoor enthusiast Susan Stancombe will lead this 9:15-11:15 a.m. workshop that begins in a coffee shop-like setting. She will review the benefits of open air exercise to both physical and mental wellbeing and introduce basic static and dynamic stretches that are valuable to any fitness program. Then she will go over how to dress for success in the outdoors, lest the four seasons scare you into the gym.

Next the class will take to the trails. Using the natural environment, the group will identify exercise opportunities and creatively produce an achievable full body workout that you can tailor to your own fitness levels and to outdoor venues available to you.

Plan to dress for the weather in comfortable clothes that allow free movement. Bringing a water bottle is strongly encouraged. 

The fee for the class is $12 or $9 for Friends of the Nature Center and children ages 9-15.

Paid reservations are required by Monday, August 1: Call (716) 569-2345 during business hours to register and pay with a credit card or click on “Coffee Shop Series: Outdoor Fitness” at www.jamestownaudubon.org.
