2012-05-23 · By Editor
Are you and your family looking to get in shape this summer? Join Long Beach Parks, Recreation and Marine for brand new classes in preschool, youth, and adult fitness.
Fit for a Kid
This is a fun fitness and nutrition education class for children. From hula-hoops to hopping sacks, we incorporate a variety of activities to develop a good attitude towards fitness. Combining elements of aerobics, yoga, dance, and sports, we create a unique, non-competitive environment for girls and boys. This class will be taught by Naima Woodson at Bixby Knolls Park, and has a cost of $50 per child. Fit for a Kid will take place every Thursday in three sessions: June 7 to 28, July 5 to 26, and August 2 to 23. Preschool class, for children ages 3 to 5, will be held from 10 to 10:45 am. Youth class, for children ages 6 to 10, will be held from 11 to 11:45 am.
Resistance training can be intimidating. However, developing lean muscle is crucial to building an efficient metabolism to drop weight and keep it off. All equipment for the class will be provided, and walk-ins are welcome with an additional cost of $10. This course is for adults 18 and older, $85 per person. Class will be held Monday through Thursday from 9 to 10 am, June 4 to 28, at Marrillyn McDowell Studio of Dance, 324 Redondo Ave.
