i found fitness
By Amy Lee, Guest Writer
Four years ago Donna Scott needed a change–a major change. She found it in her new business–i found fitness– and has been helping other women (and the occasional) man make positive lifestyle changes pretty much every day since. Those who frequent Scott’s gym find a vigorous, total body workout tailored to women who want to increase flexibility, mobility and we’ll call it mental versatility. Her brand of “inspirational fitness” is found in all of her classes ranging from Zumba! to spin to Tabata–short bursts of high intensity exercises–that fill her weekly schedule.
Classes: Something for everyone. Range from spin to yoga to a spin/yoga combo to the super popular Zumba
Schedule: Minimum of 2 every day, up to 7 on Wednesdays. Early classes begin at 5:15 and there’s a 7pm class a couple of times a week for those who like to save the best part of their day for last.
Atmosphere: Donna shares the space with a martial arts studio which is tucked next to Dunkin Donuts (no worries, you won’t be tempted), there’s plenty of well-lit room to get downward dog to business.
Price: Variety of very affordable options. 10 yoga classes are a reasonable $11/class. New members can try each class twice (a total of 10) for only $60. And 10 Zumba! classes put you back a nifty $50.
Extras: The River Valley Slimdown. Held several times a year, the 10-12 week weight loss program riffs off the popular Biggest Loser model.
