New work out posted 

It is supposed to be a great day.  Enjoy a brisk walk outside, and, take 2 light dumbbells with you and pump your arms while walking. Think of long strides and good posture, head up and shoulders back.  After your walk, sit in a quiet spot.  Sit straight and tall, and take deep breaths-inhale 4 seconds, hold it for 4 seconds, then exhale for 4 seconds.  Focus on that breath for 50 breaths.  Count them. Then sit for another minute with a vision in your head of yourself walking down the beach healthy and strong.  

Tomorrow -Virtual workout at 9am and 10:15am.  Yoga at 11:30am.

You will need 2 pot holders for this workout.

Think Strong, Move Strong, Be Strong, Stay Strong!

Yesterday was a great turnout for our 1st ever Beat PD Virtual Workouts!  We had 17 people for the Silver level and 14 for the Bronze/Beginner level.  It was great fun and I hope everyone got a great workout. Thank you for joining me.  

 

I will be doing another one tomorrow,Thursday March 26th, same times.  9am-Silver level and 10:15 Bronze/Beginner level.

As days pass, so much is changing.  It is crazy.  The one thing that can't change is us working out.  Don't let this virus take you down.  Try looking at the videos and Snapple Facts we have posted for you.  If anyone wants to share an idea, a video, a fun fact, a healthy hint, please email it to me at administrator@beatpdtoday.com.  On Sunday, 3/22, we will give an update on class status, but it looks like we may be closed for a while longer.

 Tuesday, March 17th, 2020:

All classes remain cancelled.  Please do not stop your work-outs.  I have posted one video and have more to come.  Every 2-3 days will be a new video  and we will provide a variety of levels for all to use.  The videos show you the exercises.  The best way to do your work-out is to watch the video and pause it after each exercise I demonstrate.  You do 1 minute, then watch the next exercise, pause video, do it and continue in this manner to the end.  Have fun!
