As the rain makes it difficult to enjoy physical fitness outdoors, we’re bringing you several indoor options that you can try at no cost to you! In fact, when you participate in fitness activities you GAIN! “The practice of physical activity strengthens the immune system, suggesting a benefit in the response to a viral communicable disease.” Please read more at The National Center for Biotechnology Information, the full literature review can be found here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7387807/#:~:text=The%20practice%20of%20physical%20activities,immune%20system%20for%20COVID%2D19.
Exercise must be built into our days and is a powerful tool as we use it with other healthy lifestyle choices to boost immunity, strengthen our bodies, and combat illness.

NEW offerings: OFF THE BARRE w/ Brandi Ross-
A hybrid toning class working with combing moves from ballet, pilates, and yoga. This class uses high reps and low impact small range movements to challenge your muscles in ways typical classes don’t. No shoes are required!
YOGA w/ Allison Boyd
Allison’s class is vinyasa style, which is a flowing, dynamic sequence of poses that is one of the most popular styles of yoga in the United States. This type of practice involves synchronizing the breath with a continuous flow of postures. She gives detailed cues for each pose, and offers modifications for students with injuries or limited flexibility and/or mobility, making her class suitable for students of all ages, fitness levels, and familiarity with yoga. Her classes are light-hearted and she strives to create a safe and uplifting environment free from judgment or competition. Allison Boyd is an RYT200 certified yoga instructor. She completed her training in Baltimore at Yoga Works. She was trained in Hatha Yoga, which is based on asanas (postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques).

Rain and the snow that will be coming in a few months make it more challenging to enjoy physical fitness outdoors. A plan for indoor exercise is important.
This is so good.
Thanks for all the indoor activities being offered. I have enjoyed doing body sculpt classes with Jen and look forward to trying some of the other classes made available!
Anyone with questions on any of the classes at Fit With Jen Studio please let me know. And I hope to see some new faces walk in the doors there!!! 🙂
Great activities wish I lived in Oakland
Great idea to feature indoor exercise. It has been so rainy, it is hard to get exercise outdoors.
Thanks for the info.
Thanks for continuing opportunities to keep us moving. Feels great to try new activities. Meet new people.
So wonderful to have so many options in our communities!
Looking forward to getting involved in more light fitness activities to keep moving with arthritis pain.
I will miss the outdoor exercise, but there are some really good options for indoor as the season begins to change.
These are great opportunities!
