Reminder: check the schedule as times and classes sometimes vary by season

Since September 1, 1958, nutritionists have repeated the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition information regarding the number of calories needed to burn in order to lose one pound. That number, calculated by Dr. Max Wishnofsky more than 60 years ago, was 3,500. For decades we’ve been told it takes burning or reducing our intake by 500 calories per day for 7 days to lose a single pound.

Needless to say loosing weight can be tricky. Your body has a way of responding dynamically to changes that halt linear weight loss over time. This is known as the weight loss plateau. Even so, experts agree calorie burning exercises bring numerous life-improving benefits, aside from weight loss or maintenance. A new scientific report on physical activity guidelines highlights several major findings. It provides some compelling evidence that moderate-to-vigorous physical activity improves quality of sleep, brain functionality, emotional control, and cognition (including memory and academic performance).

So, let’s get moving – take a look at our group exercise class offerings and try something new! Stay active in ways that help build muscle mass and, if weight loss is your goal, our classes will help you burn calories to avoid or push through the weight loss plateau.
