It's American Heart Month! Pledge to make your heart healthier by taking advantage of free "Fitness for You" classes. New this month is BANG Power Dance with Linda. This is an urban-inspired, mixed-fitness group exercise class. It's a unique fusion of boxing, aerobics, intervals, hip hop, world dance and bodyweight training. Jumpstart your workout with a "BANG" and take your fitness to a whole new level!
The "Fitness for You" program is sponsored by the Office of Research Services (ORS), Division of Amenities and Transportation Services (DATS), and operated through the Recreation and Welfare Association (R&W) Fitness Program. All classes are free and open to all NIH staff. However, please obtain your supervisor's approval if interested in attending classes that occur during your work hours.
The R&W will also soon start its annual Fitness and Wellness Challenge. For additional information and to register, go to
