Weight Train Like a Rock Star

By Paul Boisvert

A new class will be added to Electra’s schedule Wednesday, July 23.
It’s not an aerobics class. It’s not pilates or yoga.
It’s Power Play!!

Power Play is one hour of fun, high-energy weight training. Dumbbells and body weight are the primary tools. Power Play promotes strong, lean bodies with emphasis on postural and core strength. All exercises are designed for safety and effectiveness to support everyday functional movements.

The legs, butt, upper back, chest, biceps, triceps, shoulders, and abdominal muscles are Power Play’s target areas. The exercise movements are classic weight room gems that have been modified for safety and effectiveness.

Each muscle group is represented with a powerful rock or dance track to keep the motivation level high. Throughout each track, participants are challenged with speed and range changes. Recovery and stretching are offered between each track in preparation for the next big calorie burning song. Power Play ends with cool down stretches. This is your reward for a great workout.

Power Play will be here before you know it. Don’t miss this great experience.

What you will need:
-Heart and Soul
-A step with 2 to 3 risers/side (Electra has them in the room for you)
-Towel (You will sweat)

Paul Boisvert is a certified personal trainer at Electra. He will be teaching Power Play starting July 23.
