No, really, I do .
In thinking about our classes at Knitsburgh, I wanted to focus on more than just techniques used in knit and crochet. I wanted to focus on -- well, how to say this? The whole person. We want to talk about health issues, to keep our minds sharp, and to not go gently into that good night, ever.
Knitting and crochet are often meditative (and also frustrating, we know, but also meditative). Sometimes so meditative that you have forgotten all about the fact that you've been sitting in the same position for hours and then you stand up and oof, you're so stiff....
Karen Hite, Master Personal Fitness Trainer, will be teaching a class on Saturday, March 11th, dealing with posture and mobility. She will offer tips and tricks to get you through that binge session with minimal stiffness, and also offer some simple exercises to help you improve your posture and mobility.
I have been working with Karen since October of 2015. She operates a full-time gym, Hitek Training, out of her home in Gibsonia. Her group personal training sessions are surprisingly affordable at $14 per class, and her one-on-one sessions are only $55. She can tailor a program for anyone at any fitness level, and her goal is to make you a healthier, happier person. I can honestly say that I have never left the gym feeling like a failure -- in fact, quite the opposite. I always leave feeling like I've accomplished something -- and maybe that something was just actually getting through a set of exercises without having to take a break. The other thing about that hour that I am at the gym is that I am focused on nothing but getting through that series of exercises -- no phone, no email, no Facebook messages. It really is all about me (if only for that hour).
So with all of that being said, I'd like to introduce you to Karen (as I mentioned, she'll be here teaching a class). The class is for adults at any fitness level. You need to wear comfortable clothing suitable for moving in, and gym shoes.
Class information: Saturday, March 11, 11 a.m.
Class will last approximately 1 hour.
Class limited to 12 students - last day to register is March 9th. Please call or stop by to register.
