Join us for Kickboxing with Aida Mondays at 11 AM

My name is Aida Osborne and I live in the City of Chino Hills.
I have been a fitness instructor for almost 20 years; being an instructor has been one of the most fulfilling yet humbling accomplishments I have had.  
The class features moves from karate, taekwondo, boxing and a little bit of muay thai. Kickboxing is my favorite class to teach at all time. I love and what I do and passionate about it. 
There have been so many fun moments but there’s one unforgettable moments that stand out; during class at 24 Hour Fitness, I saw Catherine Lugo who has Down Syndrome at the back of my class. I then pulled her in front of the class and her face glowed with excitement; she became the star of the class and I gained a great friend.

Come join us on Tuesdays 5:30pm for Yoga with Angela. This class will be taught by Angela Delgado, a 200RYT certified yoga instructor. Not only does she teach at a reputable studio in Redlands, but she also leads classes for the County of San Bernardino and a few school districts in California. Angela says, “I enjoy connecting with my students and helping create comfort in their bodies. Outside of yoga I enjoy spending time with my 2 dogs, going on walks and bike rides, and eating tasty food.” 

In this class we will focus not only on physical movement, but also mindfulness, stress release, and cultivating calmness; benefits that will follow you well beyond the yoga mat.

It's important to have a safe and uncluttered space to practice in. A mat is nice but not required. In most classes we will use a chair as our prop to assist us in our postures. This will be a gentle slower paced class, combining motion and stretching.
