Get fit at the library
Submitted By Jui-lan Liu
While the library is a great source for finding books about fitness and nutrition, few patrons immediately think of it as a place for fitness activities and exercises. Officials from the Fremont Main Library want to spread the word about a ÒFitness, Nutrition and Trigger PointsÓ program that provides a great opportunity to get moving and enjoy various workouts with certified and experienced instructors. Participants will learn about new fitness activities and have fun at the same time.
The next session will meet at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 23 and will be led by Christopher Randle, MS, who will discuss fitness, nutrition and trigger points. Muscle knots are a common cause of stubborn aches and pains. Participants can learn to use manual therapy to relieve these problems and learn about some common trigger points that will help improve general physical function and alleviate headaches, eyestrain, and other symptoms. This session is designed to help participants feel loose and relaxed after they leave and provide them with tools to use for a lifetime of fitness.
Also on hand will be Chris Randle, team acupuncturist for the Golden State Warriors. He will discuss acupuncture and massage. Randle has practiced Chinese Medical Massage (Tui Na) and T'ai Chi for 19 years and earned his Master of Science from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The Fremont Main Library, a branch of the Alameda County Library system, is located at 2400 Stevenson Blvd. The library will provide an ASL interpreter for any event with at least 7 working daysÕ notice; for details, call (510) 745-1401 or TTY (888) 663-0660.
