Berkeley Township Mayor Carmen F. Amato is proud to introduce four new exercise classes to our residents. In keeping with the future Mayors Wellness Campaign, Mayor Amato wants to engage residents with classes suited for their needs and lifestyle.
“Sometimes we get so busy with our children and our work, that we don’t take enough time to take care of ourselves. That’s why we’re introducing four new exercise classes that can all be modified for the beginner to the advanced level,” Mayor Amato stated.
“As Mayor, I am committed to a healthy lifestyle not only for myself, but for us as a community, as well!” Amato added, “Whether you haven’t been to a gym in years or you are extremely active, these classes will motivate you to get up and move around, at your own pace.”
Zumba- Mondays at 6:00 pm
Zumba is designed to be easy for people to follow. It's a program for everyone - people of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels. Zumba combines aerobic exercise with Latin dance moves.
Interval Training- Tuesdays at 5:30 pm
Interval training, also known as high-intensity interval training (HIIT), is a form of exercise that combines periods of intense work with periods of lower level activity or rest to improve your endurance, speed, and fat burn. Interval training combines cardio and resistance. This class will work with bands, which are provided, or bring your own.
Beginner Yoga- Tuesdays at 6:30 pm
The beginner class introduces alignment and breath work in a flow of postures linked together by the breath. Students will be introduced to yoga postures through step-by-step verbal description and demonstration.
Benefits of yoga include: stress relief, better breathing, flexibility, increased strength, weight management, improved circulation, cardiovascular conditioning and inner peace.
