Our new Aqua Aerobics class is held right in our very own state of the art junior Olympic size pool and provides cardio AND strength training. How? - you ask. Various aerobic exercises are performed in the water, which adds a natural resistance, 4 to 42 times more resistance than air does. And if that's not enough, weights and flotation devices are incorporated for that added challenge. Join us tomorrow on Monday at 9 am.
Functional Crossfitness with Kate will have you sweating in no time! Join the class on the gym floor on Monday at 8:30 AM.

Richard Upjohn was the architect for the Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion, which was built between 1844-45 in the Gothic revival style. Due to a declining parish, the church was leased in 1976 to Lindisfarne, a Non profit educational organization. Fortunately, the buildings were designated as a landmark in 1966, otherwise the architecture could have been destroyed. The church was deconsecrated in the 1970s, and its buildings were then sold to the Odyssey House, a drug rehabilitation program. Odyssey House also had financial burdens that caused them to sell to nightclub owner Peter Gatien in 1982...
Here are some photos of the Stained glass windows which are in amazingly good shape. Also a photo of some disco balls locked up in the safe.
Upjohn was also the architect of Trinity Church on Wall Street, (which is where my graduation from high school took place). But the design for this church on the corner of 20th and 6th was made to look unrestrained and rustic by comparison to Trinity. Which is just one of the many reasons why I love this amazing building.

One of the first athletes I ever coached for breath training was a young olympic weight lifter. I remember watching him train. He was as strong as they come, but every time he missed a lift, he freaked out, got frustrated and it messed up his training. I asked him about his goals. He said he wanted to compete but was way to nervous to even try. So we started simple.
I told him before attempting a lift, he should close his eyes, take a long deep breath, and see himself making it perfect. Then, when his hands touched the bar, he would take another breath, empty his mind, and go. The moment his hands touched the bar, that would become his trigger, the moment he would go into flow. In between lifting sets, he reinforced that practice with longer breath sessions, connecting the breath to his training, connecting it to flow.
6 months later, he entered his first competition. A few months after that, he was competing at the national level. He had incredible potential, what was missing was the ability to combine movement and breath to connect to his most powerful self, to flow.
