"I was trained in the Matter of Balance class in the Fall of 2010, and immediately started a class at IROC. It is a very informative class geared towards the senior population to help address the fear of falling and prevent falls from occuring. We teach them exercises that are proven to improve balance, coordination, strength, and flexibility, as well as help them brainstorm ways to make their environment and lives safer. It is a wonderful class and empowers individuals so they can keep their independence and remain safe."

A medicine for erection problems!

I have been exercising (Spinning and Pilates) with Laure for years. I added water aerobics with Julie a couple of years ago. I just love their classes! When certification classes to teach water aerobics came to Newport lsst spring, I signed up! I know of many people who feel that they cannot exercise as their joints are painful or need replacement, and this is why I decided to teach a class in the deep end of the pool wearing flotation belts. We have fun jogging and skiing in the water without touching bottom. We get a great workout and the water is therapeutic. I am grateful that I can give back to IROC and the wonderful people who work there. I especially want to thank Julie and Lauren for inspiring me to take the initiative to teach!
