Anamoose citizens have fitness in mind. Since 2010 seniors have been holding chair exercise classes at the Anamoose Senior Center. These classes were started through RSVP Bone Builders-a program on osteoporosis heart health. Mardell Helm, Janice Buchholz, Kathy Selzler, and Phyllis Zimmerman have been the instructors. These classes are held every Monday and Thursday at 9:30AM. They conclude with a 1 or 2 mile walk to a video. (Sorry, but my camera that I have used since 2008 quit working, so picture was fuzzy)
Since 2009 a group called Happy Feet have been meeting in Barb Martin’s garage every Thursday morning at 8:30AM. They weigh in each time and a lesson is given by one of the members. Members get advice and support on weight loss and nutritional health. At present they have about 12 members.
Pictured above are some of the member’s colorful socks that Barb Martin gave to them.
This January Kim Meckle organized a group called the Anamoose/Drake Fitness Club. They meet at 5:30PM every Tuesday and Thursday at the Anamoose Fire Hall. They exercise to videos such as “The Biggest Loser Workout-Cardio Max Weight Loss”.
Zumba classes have been started at the school at 7PM on Monday and Wednesday. The classes are taught by Annette Leier. The cost for Zumba is: Special 1st time drop in fee-$5, Regular drop in fee-$7, Punch card 5 classes for $25.
Not knowing what Zumba is, I looked it up on the Internet. Zumba is a dance fitness program that involves dance and aerobic elements. ” The choreography incorporated hip-hop, soca, samba, merengue and mambo.” Sounds like fun and hard work!
