owner and Sayville resident Kiersten Bartolotta doesn't want the chilly weather to prevent people from reaching their fitness goals.
Since starting her business in Sayville a year-and-a-half ago, Bartolotta has received such great feedback from the residents and businesses, and she wanted give back to the community.
"I definitely want to motivate people to make a new fitness plan for the New Year and start on their way to a healthier lifestyle," she said.
The answer? Bartolotta approached the new owner of ISA, now known as Island Sports Academy in Sayville, to see if she could hold a free fitness walking/beginner running program at the indoor track.
Owner John Forster, also of Sayville, was happy to offer the space.
“We have this beautiful indoor track and would like the opportunity to show people our growing facility and our many programs we offer to the Sayville community," he said.
Participate in the one-hour . The program will include instruction on how to start a fitness walking, or beginner running program. Information will include injury prevention, goal setting, proper sneaker and apparel, hydration, strength training, and a 40-minute workout with instruction on proper warm up, cool down and stretching on the ISA track.
"My overall goal when I meet with people is to reinforce the idea that to stay healthy, we must all figure out how to add exercise to our daily lives," Bartolotta said. "That is definitely the message I want the participants to go home with."
Space is limited. Registration is required. Appropriate workout apparel is also required- discounts at Walk To Run Fitness will be available for all participants.
