The Rangeley Health and Wellness fitness and physical therapy staff will be presenting an active lifestyle presentation at the Rangeley Guides Association facility on March 19th at 6:30pm. The focus of the presentation will be exercise recommendations for folks that like to hunt, fly fish, snowmobile, snowshoe, ski, hike, play tennis, play pickleball or enjoy running.
Even though all of the above activities help keep us fit, adding a few strength, flexibility, mobility and balance exercises will assist with injury prevention and improve overall the enjoyment of a favorite activity. Our bodies will quickly adapt to the physical stresses that we place upon them and will no longer improve fitness in any significant way after a few weeks. Adding exercise that challenges us will be very beneficial.
Heather Reed – Practice Manager and therapist for Ascent Rangeley Lakes Rehab will discuss recommended does and don’ts, as well as specific exercises for active people that have had knee or hip replacements.
Jeff Hawksley – Rangeley Fitness Center Director, National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer, Performance Enhancement Specialist and Corrective Exercise Specialist will discuss strength, mobility and balance exercise for the outdoor activity enthusiast.
Lindsay Richards – Rangeley Fitness Center Fitness Assistant, National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer, Fitness Nutrition Specialist and Sports Nutrition Specialist will present nutrition concepts to help fuel a healthy active lifestyle.
We will also present the many membership, classes and personal training options at the Rangeley Fitness Center.
