After the last slice of pie has been claimed and the champagne glasses are put away, it’s time to focus on starting fresh and taking better care of you, both inside and out.

Montgomery County Recreation has a variety of classes and workshops that will help you get on track and stay on track to a healthier, happier you. There are classes to help you manage what and how you eat, to help you de-stress and to get you motivated to move and get stronger physically and mentally.
The Pantry Makeover is a popular, three-hour workshop that helps you clean out the junk in your kitchen, start fresh and refill it with healthy choices and a new outlook on your daily diet.

The Mindful Meditation workshop teaches you to focus on living in the moment and gain insight through letting go of the things not under your control. By letting go of the negative, you can make room for the positive aspects in your life.

The Mindful Eating program offers opportunities to create a healthy relationship with food, clean out your “inner pantry” and change your eating habits.

There are also programs designed to get you moving and the heart pumping.
The Insanity class combines strength training and plyometrics in a circuit-style class.
If you like to dance, the Mixxed Fit! Dance Fitness class is a combination of explosive dancing and boot camp moves set to a play list that covers an extensive variety of music including Hip Hop, Latin, 80s, and 90s.

If you like yoga, there’s PiYo, a combination of Pilates and yoga to give you a good muscle-building workout with the challenge of a good stretch.
