Our philosophy is in YOUR best interest. The MORNING program has a 'push yourself to the limit' style. Each class offers a boot camp style that moves to intense abdominal work then concludes with a 30 second yoga pose. The yoga class focuses on alignment, safe transitions, and correction with positive feedback from the instructor. Age group: 30-70. The EVENING program concentrates on all forms of exercise each evening. Muscle strength, agility, balance, cardiac output and mental relaxation are key. We know how to work out and have fun. Age group: 45-70+.
Jenk Center: None of us like to think of ourselves as 'old' so while the age number belies our youth it does NOT define our need and want to be healthy. Jenks is NOT about old people. Judy and Gail believe that Jenks is an inviting, wisdom-filled place where you can supplement your workout if our days/nights may not work for you some weeks. A number of people in our Winchester Aerobics program go to Jenks, as well.

Anyone attending Lena's Friday yoga class on a regular basis may want to bring a large towel (bath size towel, beach towel, or small, lightweight blanket) to class. It can be a useful prop for seated and kneeling postures and to coverup during Savasana.
• Personal Training
For one-on-one attention or small group training, Director and Certified Trainer Judy Whitney, specializes in personal training in your home or in the studio setting. During the initial one hour home visit, the trainer assesses your fitness needs and goals. A fitness plan is devised and the frequency and times of workouts are selected. Judy utilizes equipment a client has on site, such as a treadmill, weights, etc., or she brings a selection of portable equipment.
An example of a session for someone seeking to lose weight and enhance muscle tone would be as follows:
Personal training is a great option for someone with a medical condition who needs specific modifications to a traditional exercise program or for the client who prefers individualized instruction.
