Jump start your brain & body strength. Rivafit Boomer Fitness classes Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:00 & 10:30 am. Keep moving!

Most of the healthy habits that keep your brain healthy also keep your heart healthy. New studies show that very fit older adults may have "younger brains."

[05/25/16]   Ticks which can carry Lyme disease are prevalent in So CA so take care when hiking, gardening or out in the park. Symptoms include fatigue, achiness, nausea, and a bulls-eye rash where the bite was. Before you go out into the wild, spray your socks and boots containing 0.5% permethrin or insecticide safe to humans but deadly to ticks. Permethrin treated clothing is available online. Deet is the most effective repellant, unfortunately most plant-based sprays and lotions do not work well on ticks. Wear light-colored clothing and tuck your pants into your socks. After your outing shower asap and toss your clothes into a hot dryer for 10 minutes to kill any lingering ticks.

[02/27/16]   When you are inactive for long periods of time, the muscle fascia start to bind together. This prevents the muscles from moving freely against each other and leads to a stiffness or tightness which limits range of motion and prevents freedom of movement. Regular stretching will help keep your muscles and their fascia in good working order.
Mondays at 9 am STRETCH & TONE class. See you there!

Hi Friends in Fitness,

I am adding two extra classes this month:

Wednesday February 24th 10:00 - 11:00 am FORM REVIEW
I will be breaking down the correct form for lifting weights. It is vital to use proper form in order to get the most benefit from each exercise and to avoid injury.

Friday February 26th 10 am - 11:15 am YIN STRETCH
In this gentle class we will be holding the stretches while focusing on breathing and allowing our bodies to relax and give. Flexibility and relaxation are key components to fitness.

Classes are non-competitive and open to all levels and ages.

For more information email [email protected]
or call 818-724-RIVA

[01/11/16]   Now that the first weeks of your NY resolutions are fading into real life again, it's time to take a good look at your healthy lifestyle regime. As research has shown time and time again, it is essential to keep moving and exercising consistently to be in optimal health, at any age. The good news is that it's never too late to improve, and it actually takes only moderate amounts of CONSISTENT exercise to reap life-altering benefits.

Make your personal fitness a priority!
Your first group workout class is free. Private training with me is also available. See you soon!

Today is the youngest day of the rest of your life - grab it!

[05/16/15]   A woman in her mid-60's was sitting and talking with friends, and after an hour or so of couch-sitting she found she could not get up off the couch. It took a little help from her friends.
This was a sad moment and is not how it has to be. With appropriate exercise our muscles can remain strong enough to carry us through the years. Remember - muscles support joints.
Age is not a barrier to fitness - it is never too late to start moving!

[01/29/15]   Happy Birthday to Studio City Martial Arts and Sensei Minge! Congratulations to Sempei Angel for passing his most challenging and difficult test. And another Happy Birthday to Chelsea!
I am so grateful for being part of the Dojo by keeping the Boomer women strong. Thank you, Sensei Chadwick Minge and Jeri Creson.

[12/24/14]   Wishing you all a healthy and happy 2015!
I am looking forward to helping you stay active and fit through another year and beyond!

[10/11/14]   The "60 Minutes" documentary on the survey of healthy, active people well into their 80's and 90's illustrated that exercise, even in moderate amounts, along with a good attitude, keeping busy, maintaining a healthy body weight (according to this survey a few extra lbs is fine as we age), enjoying a drink or two, and being in a loving relationship are elements which appear to boost longevity.
Sounds encouraging!

[08/13/14]   We had a great cardio-kick-ass class today! Tomorrow back to the regular upbeat Boomers' Fitness - be there!
