Great Workout For Women
Outdoor Restorative Exercise Classes for Women
No Running, Dancing or Jumping
JOIN US for an invigorating outdoor workout! Imagine the serenity of being outside and the euphoric feeling while we are working our muscles, stretching and breathing in the fresh air! (We meet in a sheltered area during inclement weather.)
Oh! We still get a great workout! We lift small weights with high reps. We play with bands and balls and occasionally bring out the battling rope! Every class finishes with a relaxing stretching session. This camp is geared towards women that are out of shape and may have 10- 50 lbs or more of excess body fat to release. This is for women that don't want to, or can't run and jump anymore.
As we age, it is important to keep our muscles and bones strong, we do that through strength and resistance training. Stretching is beneficial for those with arthritis by lubricating joints and enhancing and maintaining range-of-motion. So, we do a lot of stretching too! The average age of the women in class ranges from 40's - 70's. But, women of all ages, shapes and sizes are welcome!
There's definitely a social aspect to Code Pink Boot Camp. There's a lot of group camaraderie and encouragement. Every day there is some laughter going on! Even if you don't arrive with a smile, you will leave with one!
Christina began her career in fitness as an aerobic instructor in 1983. Still in her teens, she soon advanced to Aerobic Director. Teaching group exercise has always been a passion of hers. She also became certified as a personal trainer and certified running coach. She has offered healthy cooking classes and helps people with their nutrition plan. In early 2000's she co-developed the Adventure Boot Camp Certification program and launched Code Pink Boot Camp in 2008.
Due to a variety of circumstances she had to put Code Pink Boot Camp on hold in 2015. During that time Christina ignored everything she knew about fitness and proper nutrition. Christina gained 65 pounds of unwanted body fat. Along with that came arthritis in her knees and high blood pressure.
Now in her 50's, Christina is re-launching Code Pink Boot Camp and catering to women that she can empathize with; those uncomfortable in their own body, those who have aches and pains due to age or unhealthy living. She is encouraged to work alongside the women in her camp to make a healthy change and help each other find the fit body that has been lost.
