Nordic Pole Walking Session #3

We took the month of August off to avoid the hot days, and we are looking forward to enjoying the fall weather and beautiful scenery! We would love to have you join us! So far we have walked: the Queensbury Bike Trail, Betar Byway, Feeder Canal Historic Locks, Cole’s Woods and more!

 

We will be starting a new session September 9th and will continue for another 6 weeks.  This session will meet on Mondays at 1:00 and Thursdays at 10:00.  You can come to whichever day works best for you that week — or join us for both! Please Note: Sept. 19th time is 9 am & Oct. 14th rescheduled to Oct. 15th at 1.

Contact Alisha for more information and to register (518) 761-8223

WHAT IS NORDIC POLE WALKING????

The fitness and health benefits of Nordic Walking are significantly greater than regular walking, trekking or even jogging, with scientific research from Europe and the USA proving that Nordic Walking:

  • Activates 90% of the body’s muscles
  • Burns up to 46% more calories than regular walking
  • Increases aerobic effect by up to 25% compared to regular walking
  • Decreases load and strain on the lower body
  • Tones upper arms, shoulders and back muscles
  • Improves lateral mobility of the spine
  • Develops core stability and strength
  • Promotes an upright posture

These benefits are achieved through the use of specially designed poles and a properly learned and performed Nordic Walking technique, whereby the poles are used as a resistance tool to engage the upper body. The result is a low impact, high results, total body exercise.

Westward Ho! Presented by Dodi Robinson

Tuesday, October 8th, 15th, 22nd & TBD 9:30 a.m.

A lot of people say that they don’t like history. However, if you take the “hi” off the word, you’re left with “story.” And who doesn’t like a good story?

In this overview of westward expansion in America, we’re going to look at the stories of individuals who played a role in this movement.

Names like Daniel Boone and Lewis and Clark are familiar to us. But, others such as the Seger family and John McLaughlin may not be as recognizable.

What are the stories they have to tell?

Come Find Out!

Investing in the Late Innings of the Bull Market

 

Baseball fans can get more nervous as the game goes on.               Similarly, some investors become more concerned the longer a bull market runs. But even an aging cycle offers opportunities for solid performance.

We’ll examine:

  • The economic outlook in late innings of the bull market
  • Late-cycle risks: market curveballs
  • Late-cycle opportunities
  • Staying in position: keeping a balanced portfolio

Understanding the defining moments of each generation that we interact with every day is key to understanding the differences and challenges that interaction may bring.  This session is designed to assist participants in understanding and appreciating the diversity of generations and developing the skills to better understand the strengths and challenges of each. Learn to define the five generations; identify the characteristics of each generation; understand the pluses and minuses—strengths and weaknesses— of each generation; understand the reasons that impact the behavior of each generation; assess how to manage relationships with members of each generation; and identify the behaviors that make each generation successful.  MUST RSVP, limited seating. Light refreshments served.
