A Sedona fitness trainer and nutrition coach will be starting a new fitness class that will complement active Sedona residents’ routines.
James Fisher, who has almost 20 years of experience in training and exercise, will begin a recreation fitness class through the Sedona Parks and Recreation Department this fall that focuses on the foundation of fitness for people who do outdoor activities and who are already active. It is heavily based on TRX, which stands for Total Body Resistance Exercise.
“The class will focus on the basics of flexibility, cardio and joint stability,” Fisher said. “It is geared toward people who are active or who want to be active. It’s a good class for people who already hike or play tennis or golf or anything normal Sedona athletes are involved in.”
Fisher said he doesn’t recommend the class for anyone with major shoulder or knee injuries.
A normal class will start with 10 minutes of warm-up exercises to get the blood flowing. Fisher will go through major movement patterns and get joints in the range of motion.
“These warm-ups will be something people can use before any sports or physical activity they do,” Fisher said.
