Why and How You Eat Can Be More Important Than What
Thursday, September 10th at 3:30pm
Learn the difference between hunger versus a craving. There are many triggers that channel us to want to eat. Knowing what those triggers are and learning how to ride out cravings will help us learn to stick to better eating habits and be more successful in weight loss goals.
Core Without Crunches
Monday, September 21st at 2:00pm
Need to strengthen your core and think crunches are your only option? Think again! Crunches were long considered the "go-to" exercise for your abs. But as it turns out, crunches - lifting the shoulder blades off of the floor while knees are bent and feet are on the floor - can cause neck strain for some. In this clinic you will learn how to perform several core strengthening exercises that do not involve crunches.
Exercises to Improve Posture
Wednesday, September 30th, 2:00pm
Injury, illness, and a lifetime of repetitive movements can wreak havoc on your posture. Not to mention the negative influence of excessive sitting and a sedentary lifestyle. These changes in your posture can lead to joint and muscular pain, poor balance, and various mobility issues. Attend this clinic if you would like to learn some simple stretches and exercises to enhance your posture.
The DCFL Group Exercise Studio will be closed for all classes and programs Thursday, September 3rd through Monday, September 7th in order to accommodate the much needed refinishing of the wood floor.
All pool classes and cycle classes will be held as scheduled.
We regret the inconvenience, however this decision is necessary to keep the flooring safe for our members, residents and guests.
