Hey, is this ballet class?

It seems I get my best shots of Bootcampers when they’re stretching or resting…I’m not great with action shots. But don’t let this relaxed end-of-class stretch full you…these ladies, Maya, Natasha and Sharon, all worked hard for the previous 30 minutes.

This week I have new FitDeck exercise playing cards to entertain the troops.  It should be fun!


More proof: Exercise Keeps you Young

We all know that physical activity is beneficial in countless ways, but even so, Dr. Mark Tarnopolsky, a professor of pediatrics at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, was startled to discover that exercise kept a strain of mice from becoming gray prematurely.

A well-deserved post-workout stretch

This is Maya.  She a website whiz who programmed my website and who helps me with my blog and Facebook postings.  She and I worked together for years for the Marin County Bicycle Coalition’s Safe Routes to Schools program for Manor School, and though my Manor School kid is ready to graduate from Drake H.S.,  she’s still involved with the program at Manor as her fourth son finishes up there.  Mostly a runner and cyclist, she’s found she’s gotten stronger all over since joining Bootcamp.
