Some Middle Georgians are getting back in shape for 2015
Exercise is one of the most popular. Rachel Gerrity, owner of Hometown Yoga in Macon, already has a full class of students.
“It’s great for stress relief it helps people sleep better so it’s both like the physical, but than also really a great emotional mental way to start the new year as well,” explains Gerrity.
Stephanie Kross has done yoga off-and-on for years. At age 62, it has turned into a passion. And, she tries to do it as much as she can.
“Felt that I started to like myself, and wanted to take care of myself,” recalls Stephanie Kross.
At Kinetix Health Club in downtown Macon, General Manager Emily Crawford suggested other ways to get in shape.
“Cardio, anything for at least 20 to 30 minutes you can use a treadmill, the eliptical, the stepper, you can also go for a walk or run outside,” adds Crawford.
Regardless of the exercise, fitness experts advise everyone to pick a workout, stick to it, and make it more than just a New Year’s resolution.
