WALK WEDNESDAY
Free Walking Club

Halifax Senior Fitness with 25+ year Personal Trainer Deb Leblanc | debfit®

Walking is the safest form of exercise and yet one of the most beneficial. Join us for fitness walks on the beautiful Chain-of-Lakes Trail!! This is a 45-minute beginner-friendly walk. We follow the 10-and-one beginner protocol. Importantly this means: walk 10-minutes, stretch & rest for one minute. Repeat 4-rounds. You can look forward to a walking pace challenging enough to improve your fitness level and also comfortable for talking.

Particularly, there is no power walking or speed walking. Absolutely, if you’re not familiar with Chain-of-Lakes Trail it’s flat, paved and lovely to walk on!

Without a doubt, this free weekly walking club will strengthen your heart, build muscle tone and increase bone mass density.

You can walk at your own pace and all fitness levels welcome!

Get fit in the great outdoors! This weekly workout in the park incorporates gentle warm up, low-impact cardio and body-weight strengthening exercises. As well as core conditioning and cool down stretch.

In fact this is the perfect exercise class if you are a health-conscious baby boomer and also like the concept of small group training.

So you know what to expect, the class format is based upon low intensity ‘circuit training’. Circuit training is a workout technique involving a series of exercises performed in rotation with rest in between each circuit.

Furthermore, so you get the best and safest workout for your body.

STRETCH SUNDAY
Slow Gentle Yoga in the Park

Halifax Senior Fitness with 25+ year Personal Trainer Deb Leblanc | debfit®

Begin your day in the park with gentle movement, slow-flow stretch and restorative breath work,

I’ve designed this Yoga class specifically for beginners. With this in mind each week you’ll not only notice increased flexibility but also balance confidence. As a result you’ll also have better posture. Additionally, with regular attendance, you may also notice a naturally lowered resting heart rate.

In particular, caring individual attention ensures every student learns how to modify the stretches for their body.

To finish your Yoga practice enjoy a calming Tao neck massage. Lay back, breathe & relax…..
