Fitness 4 Mind and Body's Month of Wellness provides a carefully curated trio of body, mind, and nutrition sessions as part of the class calendar. Eight boot-camp classes hone in on proper technique as exercisers test their cardiovascular endurance and pique core muscles. For a cool-down, two hatha-yoga classes put stretchers in tune with their inner selves in an outdoor oasis ideal for releasing captive frog poses back into the wild. A former University of Texas cross-country star will also dole out tips for race-running hopefuls during his training on how to run or walk a 5K. Along with a solid base for future exercise endeavors, participants take home gift certificates toward boot camp, yoga, and nutrition classes, promoting continued health and providing bartering materials for high-stakes games of Monopoly.
Paired with a mountain of physical tests, the Month of Wellness also ameliorates anatomies with five courses centered on bettering the inner body and mind. Two nutrition sessions aim to simplify the food selection process and highlight healthy options. A duo of life-balance workshops teaches participants to stay afloat amid life's stressors by perfecting impressions of buoys. For safer fitness, a pedorthist who works with University of Texas athletes will advise participants on the proper footwear for running, cross-training, or competitive pogo-sticking.
