Fitness Challenge: Day 74
You trade the camaraderie of a gym when you embark on a solo fitness quest, even if you take a lot of classes. But at Lori's All Star Fitness (firstname.lastname@example.org) I was welcomed into the fold. Classes are held at Old First Reformed Church in Park Slope, Brooklyn, in a large open room.
Though the classes are mainly populated by older women, they are anything but a cake walk. Lori, a dancer, infuses her classes with easy to follow dance steps. It is not Zumba, but it is equally fun. Yet, the cardio and strength training give you a complete work out.
Stretching is an important part of the class, and for someone as inflexible as I am, that was a true challenge.
Classes are $15, and if you buy a 10 pack, you get one class free. Mats and hand weights are provided; bring your own water and towel.
