Healthy Living Action Group offers free workouts at Brian’s Gym
Sedalia, Missouri, Oct. 10, 2017 — The Sedalia Healthy Living Action Group will host Zumba or Insanity workouts on Thursday, Oct. 19, as part of its Moving 101 community health and wellness initiative. The free event will be from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Brian’s Gym, 1400 S. Limit Ave., No. 78 in Sedalia.
“Participants can choose their workout for this event, which is a great way for people to get a taste for two really popular workout programs,” said Melissa Boeschen, community outreach coordinator at Bothwell Regional Health Center (BRHC) and chair of the Healthy Living Action Group.
Zumba combines Latin and international music with dance moves for an excellent aerobic workout. Zumba routines incorporate interval training – alternating fast and slow rhythms – and resistance training. Insanity is a total body workout that requires no gym or equipment, because it uses your own body weight for resistance. The program is based on a fitness method called “max interval training,” which has you work as hard as possible for 3-minute intervals, with 30-second periods of rest in between, allowing you to burn up to 1,000 calories in an hour.
All the Moving 101 activities are free and open to the public. Information about Moving 101 and other Healthy U activities can be found at facebook.com/HUPettisCounty. Healthy U is a project of the Healthy Living Action Group, which includes BRHC, Katy Trail Community Health, Pettis County Health Center, Boys and Girls Clubs of West Central Missouri and University of Missouri Extension.
