Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri, ongoing weekly 9:15 - 10:00 a.m., Room 207
Class description: Start your heart in this "no pressure" class! Leslie Sansome, video instructor, guides through a different routine each day with a variety of "easy to learn" steps. Improve your stamina, balance and sense of well-being by beginning your day with 45 minutes of exercise with Christian friends (of all ages)!
Monday is 3 miles of walking and dumbbells. Tuesday is 2 miles of faster paced walking for the heart.
Thursday is fast-paced cardio for upper body with dumbbells. Friday is 4 miles of fast walking.
Diane states, "Why do I do this? for body and mind. I am retired and I need routine in my life. I was new to Amarillo and to First Pres. I moved here to be near my family. I needed to make friends (other than family). I knew no one. The exercise class was just getting started here at First Pres. About 9 of us came together. The routine is motivated by Leslie Sansome tapes. We used a different one each day of the week. That was 12 years ago. Betty Hallerberg, Dorothy Timmons, Donna Clopton, Carolyn Hudnell, Dani Hermesmeyer, Carol Talley, Jeanne Jackson and I - the group slowly got smaller but is still meeting. About 6 years ago, I had a TIA and attributed the lack of medical complications to my daily exercise routine. I still have some heart issues, but it has not changed my lifestyle. I still need routine - a place to be each morning and to stimulate my heart. It's easy to do the walk at your own pace. No pressure! I hope to see this group grow. A recent addition is Judy Taylor. Come join us in Room 207 at 9:15 a.m. We would love to have you there!"

A word from Lisa: "Health and fitness have been a passion of mine for quite a few years. I enjoy a variety of workouts, especially those that are low impact. I have seven years experience teaching fitness classes and I am licensed to teach Zumba (including toning, sentao, and kids), pound, PiYo, group ride and group core. I believe in creating an atmosphere of fun regardless of age, size, or ability. That is why I am excited about a class where we can praise, have fun and burn some calories."
