Stuck at home? Many of NFBID’s fitness studios have moved online! Here’s how you can access a great workout from the safety of your home:

Pongo Power:

Classes:

To access Pongo Power’s online class schedule, go HERE. Pongo just added a weekly body strength and mobility class with Zack on Thursdays at 7pm. Leave class feeling recharged, rejuvenated, and ready for whatever comes your way next. This class is a 45 minute bodyweight strength and mobility focus, no equipment required (a mat is recommended). Click HERE to sign up.

Personal Training:

Many of Pongo Power’s clients must continue their exercise training to reverse the impact of being seated for so much of the day. Now that most business people are working from home online, our personal trainer’s unique program prescription, customized to each person’s health history and postural alignment, is restoring their health, mightily!

Pongo Power clients are loving their virtual sessions on Zoom. It is quite unique to have a certified personal trainer supervising, and also creating an optimized workout plan for those 60 minutes. The workouts are efficient and effective in boosting the immune system; exercise increases blood flow to the vital internal organs, helps to regulate insulin, builds bone mineral density, and helps with production/uptake of the happy hormones in the brain. Personal training at home is a necessity during these times. 

Pongo Power is offering a FREE fitness consultation to go over your health history, complete with a online/Zoom movement analysis. They will observe which muscles are tight, and weak, and then make the necessary recommendations for proper exercises for our clients to achieve their health and fitness goals. For more information, go to www.pongopower.com!

For Families!

Moderate intensity exercise has been found to alleviate many aches and pains associated with pregnancy, and can help to prevent or manage conditions like preeclampsia, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, swelling, and gestational diabetes.  Plus, exercise benefits the baby! Cardiovascular development, brain activity, and healthy weight ranges are all affected in a positive way by the mother exercising. Click HERE to learn about Pongo’s pre and post natal training program.

Pongo Power is also offering Small Group Kids Fitness classes on Saturdays and Sundays! Help your kids get the wiggles out and get a half hour break for yourself. More info HERE.
