Gloucester, VA (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
The Tidewater Performance Centers in Gloucester and Newport News will open their Total Body Conditioning classes to women for free starting Mother’s Day and running through May 18 in honor of National Women’s Health Week.
Women – 18 or older – are invited to both Tidewater Performance Centers for unlimited, free access to the Total Body Conditioning classes led by degreed and certified personal and sports performance trainers.
“Sometimes, when you’re working on becoming the best woman you can be, you just need a little encouragement to get started,” said Natalie Conway, a physical therapist, wife, mother and Tidewater Physical Therapy’s Regional Director in Gloucester. Tidewater Performance is a division of Tidewater Physical Therapy.
“We want to encourage women to get fit as the main decision makers of the family, and put themselves first this week.”
Coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health, the weeklong observance is meant to bring communities, businesses, government, health organizations and other support groups together to promote the importance of women’s health.
“It also empowers women to make their health a priority and encourages them to take…steps to improve their physical and mental health and lower their risks of certain diseases,” according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
While most women recognize that regular activity can help prevent unhealthy weight gain and prevent diseases, according to the department, many women “haven’t quite gotten around to setting up a regular routine.”
The Total Body Conditioning classes can be the beginning of that routine, Conway said. The class starts with a dynamic warm up, including hopping and skipping, and is then tailored to participants’ personal level of fitness for strength training and conditioning. All levels of fitness are welcome.
Women can call the Tidewater Performance Center in Newport News at 757.223.5612 or in Gloucester at 804.210.1343 to reserve a space in any Total Body Conditioning class May 12 through May 18.
Classes are offered at various times throughout the day. A full schedule of classes at both locations is available online at http://www.tidewaterperform.com/about/tidewaters-schedule.
Forget to call or don’t want to come alone? Drop-ins are welcome and every woman is invited – and encouraged – to bring the other women in their life.
