Young North Public Schools senior aerobics group will be heading to the national aerobics championships this week on the Gold Coast in what has been another hugely successful year for the girls.

Young North Public Schools senior aerobics group will be heading to the national aerobics championships this week on the Gold Coast in what has been another hugely successful year for the girls.

The team, led by Young North Public School teacher Jessica Hardy, most recently performed at the 2017 Cherry Jam but the girls had massive success at the state finals coming in fifth overall in their division and making it to the National Championships to be held this week.

The girls werent alone in their success with the Junior girls also doing well coming home with the bronze from the state championships.

It was the Juniors first year sending a competition team, and the school said they were very proud of the performance as well as the behaviour of the students who took part.

The competition in both the senior and junior divisions was very close with the juniors only missing out on moving forward by one place.

In May the teams competed in their first competition for the year with the Junior team coming in a respectable fourth place and the seniors winning second making both teams eligible to compete in the state finals which were held in June.

Ms Hardy and the Junior squad have already set their sights on making it to Nationals next year.

The Senior aerobics team will be making the trek to the Gold Coast where they will compete against teams from all across the country. It is set to be a very tough competition but with the success of previous year's behind them, and a hard working and dedicated coach and parents, the community should be proud of the girls no matter the result at the end of the competition.

Bay aerobics gymnast goes to Arizona – SunLive

Posted: July 30, 2017 at 2:28 pm


without comments

An aerobics competitor will be the only Bay of Plenty dancer to represent New Zealand in the 28th International Aerobics Championship in Arizona.

Catrin Pearce, 17, will be competing in her first international competition alongside 10 other New Zealanders from July 29 to August 2.

She will be competing in an individual women's performance in age group two, which is between the ages of 15 to 17 years old.

She says she is surprised and grateful that she was selected out of all the other dancers who trialed, and wants to make New Zealand proud.

She's worked really hard and has been a real role model for the sport in the area, says coach Rachel Harvey.

She is probably quite nervous, but she is a pretty good competitor, so I know she'll be fine.

Rachel, who is the coach for Bay Aerobics, says ever since she has been couching, she has never known of a Bay of Plenty gymnast to get into the New Zealand team.

I'm extremely proud and it's an amazing achievement for her.

Catrin applied for the role last year and had to meet a certain score to get selected to go to international competitions.

She found out earlier this year that she had met the qualifying score.

Rachel says it was a bit of a rush when they found out because she was originally going to compete in an Australia competition to get more experience in international championships.

Since it was her first trialing in an international competition, we thought we'd go for Australia, but then she ended up getting the qualifying score for the competition in America.

Catrin says her parents are very proud of her and she has been working extra hard during training sessions in Tauranga and Auckland to perfect her routine.

Catrin has been doing aerobics for five years, and since 2013 has won several national aerobics competitions in individual and trio performances.

Before doing aerobics, she originally competed in gymnastics, but stopped because of an injury on the bars.

I broke my arm and had to stop for a bit, and I got into aerobics to strengthen my muscles, says Catrin.

If Catrin wins her division in the first round she will be asked to perform her routine again to determine the international winner.

The International Aerobics Championship has been running since 1983 and has individual, mixed pairs, trio and teams in junior, varsity and senior divisions.

The championship will see 21 countries compete against each other for the top spot in their divisions.

15 Health Benefits of Water Aerobics (+10 Tips for Beginners) – South Florida Reporter

Posted: July 8, 2017 at 12:40 am


without comments

Water aerobics is fast becoming a popular exercise trend among all age groups. Exercising in water is considered a therapeutic exercise, which has accelerated the uptake of water aerobics as mainstream exercise in different parts of the world.

Experts have investigated the advantages of water aerobics, and have found that this form of exercise accrues several benefits to all of those who participate in it. Benefits include strength and cardio building as well as promoting joint strength.

The following are some health benefits of water aerobics according to science, as well as helpful tips for beginners.

I. Water aerobics helps improve flexibility

Scientific studies show that water aerobics can help improve flexibility as the joints increase their range of motion when they adjust to the resistance of the water. Experts opine that water aerobics helps increase the range of motion of the joints especially in older individuals.

In addition, experiments done on the elderly, (individuals aged 60-82), show that aquatic exercise significantly increases their shoulder flexibility.

Studies also show that water based exercises are crucial in improving flexibility, and mobility in individuals suffering from either osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.

A study conducted on obese children in elementary school showed that aquatic exercises helped improve their flexibility when compared to the control group.

Bottom Line: Aquatic aerobic exercises help improve the flexibility and mobility of all individuals including those who suffer from obesity, RA, osteoarthritis, and the elderly.

Businesses open, re-open: Fitness World recovers from fire – Price Sun Advocate

Posted: at 12:46 pm


without comments

Joy. Just a three letter word that essentially means a feeling of pleasure, happiness or glee. For Jerri Timothy, owner of Fitness World in Price, thats how she would describe her 35-year career in fitness: joyful. But that sentiment was missing for quite some time. Eight months to be exact. Now, after the grand re-opening of the gym, shes finally starting to feel it again.

Joy is my favorite word. Joy. Love it, said Timothy, just days after the re-opening. Im starting to feel human again. Im starting to feel like myself again. Theres that joy again.

An early morning phone call left Timothy devastated on a Saturday in November. A treadmill had sparked up in the middle of the night, catching fire and melting everything around it: fans, light fixtures, an elliptical and treadmill and even clocks.

It blackened everything front to back, top to bottom, said Timothy, explaining that even the bathrooms had soot in the sinks. It was pretty devastating.

Despite the gym building being blackened, Timothy had the aerobics room up and running with classes being held again by Tuesday morning. She has continued to hold dozens of classes per week, but has yet to be able to open the weights and gym building next door, due to waiting on insurance money.

Some money was available through insurance to begin renovations right away. However, after the fire, the building had to meet new regulations in order to keep the hotel running upstairs. With no more insurance money available yet, Timothy had to put a hold on the restoration.

We couldnt let it continue until we know how much insurance is going to take care of, said Timothy. The insurance is the reason why were not open yet we need our insurance to kick in and do right by us to get it going again.

While still holding aerobics and spin classes, Timothy felt like she wasnt doing all she could, not only for herself, but for her fitness family. The gym had memories, but she needed to move forward.

I just felt like I was losing my battle and I wasnt offering as much as I could to the people that were loyal and stayed with me.

She began to look at possible buildings for a new aerobics room and small gym area. I kept looking at the place across the street and it kept looking like it had potential, said Timothy, saying she visited the location three different times.

Although she wanted to move forward, the issue of how to afford a new building, while continuing to pay for the old was still at the forefront.

I just prayed and I said God if this is your will, show me a sign, said Timothy. And a kind gentleman came to my house with a check for $1,000. And I said Theres my sign.

After first looking at the building in February, and not being able to move forward in March, Timothy and her husband Randy finally began work in April and worked all through April and all through May, moving into the new building on June 5. All hours were spent working on the building, with Timothy claiming, We even missed church, sorry God.

The new building features an aerobics room and spin area, as well as a small workout space with almost 100 possible exercises. It also features a personal training studio, which Timothy did not have in the other building.

I love what I do and Im going to do this and Im going to get something going, I dont care what it takes, said Timothy, adamantly. This is my life and Im going to take control. And I prayed about it and it all came together, so now I get to spread that joy again in a new place.

According to Timothy, there will probably not be enough money once the insurance does come through to get the big room going again. However, the plan is to move the workout equipment into the old aerobics studio, and have the gym on one side of the street and the aerobics on the other, in the new building.

The fire was devastating, closing down what was Jerri and Randy Timothys livelihood. However, there was positive that came out of it, according to Jerri.

I think Okay God, you made me slow down. Okay, I get it. But you didnt stop me, because you gave me my aerobics and my spin. So I still have that Im thinking the message from heaven was for me and Randy to slow down and live life.

Jerri Timothy is joyful again, after claiming that she wasnt her normal, happy self during her fitness classes throughout the past eight months.

Theres joy in my heart again and Ive loved doing what Im doing for 35 years Ive just done it, not to get rich or famous, but to help people, said Timothy.

Fitness World is now located at 58 W. Main St. in Price. For more information, call 613-SLIM.

Water aerobics program creating huge splash at city pool this summer – Jacksonville Daily Progress

Posted: July 5, 2017 at 10:49 pm


without comments

A new water aerobics program at Jacksonvilles Buckner Park pool has proven so popular this summer, city officials have given the green light to expand it from one to two days a week.

And assistant city manager Patty Crenshaw couldnt be more thrilled.

I knew it would be something the community would welcome, but I am really surprised at how it has embraced the program, she said, adding she was pleased by the response. When you offer something like this, you hope thats what theyre really wanting.

Already working with the American Red Cross to offer swim lessons and water safety classes, city leaders felt water aerobics might be a good way to round out its offerings this year.

Part of it was motivated by hiring Tonya (city recreation director Tonya Foluke), who had the talent and the training to be able to teach the class, Crenshaw said, noting the program began in June. The folks taking the class loved it so much, they asked if we could hold it two days a week.

The new class is definitely a popular one, Foluke agreed.

We held it from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, and weve had 17 inquiries for more classes from that first session, she said, describing classes as real laid back.

According to http://www.phase-iv.net - a website operated by the Phase IV Health & Performance Center, which is dedicated to improving the health and lifestyle of people of all ages - benefits of water exercise include: high calorie burning during and after workouts; renewal of energy levels; stress/tension relief; lowered risk of stress-related injuries due to buoyancy of water; and higher workout intensity due to water resistance.

You dont need any special equipment, the site notes, adding that water exercise is not restricted by outside temperatures.

And, Foluke said, its good for people who have joint problems, who may be recovering from any type of surgery - the water softens the impact (of the workout).

Cost of the program is $40 per month or $10 per class, with two classes offered from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, beginning July 4. They will be offered throughout the month of July, with plans to extend through the month of August.

Meanwhile, water safety/swimming classes for all ages also resume on July 4, and will be held as a two-week session, with a second session slated to begin July 18. Classes will be held Tuesday through Friday, beginning at 8 a.m., 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Cost is $40 per child per session; families enrolling more than one child receive a slight discount, at $30 assessed per child.

Courses, which are part of the American Red Cross swimming and water safety program, include Parent and Aquatics (for parents and children ages six months to three years); Preschool Aquatics (children ages 4-5); Learn-to-Swim (ages 6-12); and Adult Swim, for those ages 13 and older.

While swim lessons have been offered in the past in partnership with the YMCA, last year the department was scrambling to get the program into place, and ended up training its team of lifeguards through Red Cross.

I was very impressed with their water safety course - (lifeguards) have to pass a swimming test, a written test, have the ability to teach and must receive 50 hours of instruction, Crenshaw said, adding instructors began receiving training on June 19.

We had to wait for (several lifeguards) to finish school, so next year, we hope to stagger certifications so that every year, well be training someone for two-year certification, she said.

In doing so, the city will have top-trained instructors to oversee what Crenshaw calls a top-quality facility.

Were wanting to grow our aquatic program, because we have a quality pool, she said. We want to offer citizens inexpensive programs that have value (as well as provide opportunities for enjoyment).

We definitely want to implement programs that will help folks get into the pool, into Lake Jacksonville, and be safe while doing so, Foluke added.

Crenshaw agreed. If we can teach even the little guys about safety around water - if this helps to save one life - whatever the city spends on these programs is worth it, she said.

Those interested in lessons or water aerobics are invited to sign up during classes at Buckner Park pool, located at 119 Newbern St.

They also can visit the City of Jacksonville website, http://www.jacksonville-texas.com, or contact Tonya Foluke at 281-330-7568 to learn more.

Acrobatic and aerobic gymnastics to return to European Games … – Insidethegames.biz

Posted: at 10:49 pm


without comments

Five different gymnastics disciplines of artistic, rhythmic, trampoline, acrobatic and aerobics will all be showcased for the second successive European Games in Minsk in 2019, it has been confirmed.

Members of the European Union of Gymnastics (UEG) ruling Executive Committee voted in favour of participation in the Belarus capital with exactly the same programme as in Baku in 2015.

As well as the three Olympic disciplines of men and women's artistic, rhythmic and trampoline, this was considered particularly innovative at the inaugural 2015 event because it also included the non-Olympic aerobic and acrobatic ones on the same programme for the first time.

In acrobatics, gymnasts work together and perform routines consisting of acrobatic moves and dance and tumbling, while in aerobics, they perform continuously complex and high-intensity movement patterns to music.

There was no mention after the meeting, however, of any discussions towards incorporating another event such as parkour.

Parkour or obstacle course sprint, has been pioneered as the newest gymnastics discipline with an eye to eventual Olympic inclusion.

There has been fierce opposition from the grassroots parkour community, who claim the International Gymnastics Federation are trying to "hijack" the event, while there are also fears elsewhere that the ambitions of aerobics and acrobatics may be sidelined.

All five events are expected to be held within the 15,000 capacity Minsk Arena.

Competition is expected to take place from June 21 to 30 in 2019.

Holon in Israel was also awarded the 2019 European Championships in acrobatic gymnastics between October 21 and 27 during the Executive Committee meeting at their Lausanne headquarters.

The 2020 Rhythmic Gymnastics European Championships were also awarded to Kiev in Ukraine from May 22 to 24.

The next meeting of the UEGs Executive Committee is scheduled to take place on September 8 and 9 in the Swiss city.
