Fitness Programs

In considering Governor DeWine’s decision to suspend in-person classes for Ohio schools, and to play a proactive role in slowing the spread of COVID-19, the Recreation Annex building will be closed through Friday, April 30. All programs within the Recreation Annex during this time will be cancelled. The health and wellbeing of all of our participants is our priority. In addition to the sanitizing practices already implemented at the Annex, we will be implementing a deep cleaning and sanitizing during the closure.
We will be continuously reevaluating the situation and posting updates regarding the status of the Recreation Annex closure.
We appreciate your patience during this time. Please contact Sarah Fink, Recreation Specialist at sfink@montgomeryohio.org and Julie Machon, Recreation Coordinator at jmachon@montgomeryohio.org with any questions you may have.

Come and experience the newly renovated Recreation Annex Building (located at 10115 Montgomery Road) and new group exercise equipment.

Tai Chi classOften called a moving meditation, Tai Chi has its roots in martial arts. The movements are practiced slowly and smoothly with attention to proper posture and breathing. Tai Chi is easy to learn, effective and safe; it increases flexibility, muscle strength, heart/lung activity, aligns posture, improves balance, and integrates the mind and body.

Classes are taught by Master Tai Chi Trainer, Ralph Dehner.

 

This class offers light to moderate cardiovascular exercises, light strength training and light stretching for 20 minutes each. The instructor has experience with teaching adults of all ages and will teach to individual’s fitness levels, taking into account common physical concerns of adults and the value of gaining and maintaining muscle strength.

This class is intended to make yoga accessible to advancing seniors and to students with arthritis, injuries or other movement limitations and challenges. Each student will have a chair to assist with balance for some simple standing poses. We will also do many postures seated in the chair and will spend plenty of time on breath work and guided relaxation.
