WILLIAMS, Ariz. - Williams residents can start off the new year with a new exercise routine. Group fitness instructor Georgeanna Koenig started offering exercise classes at the Sultana Theater in November, and resumed Jan. 7 after the holidays.

"I really like to stress with the students that they get into some kind of regular exercise program for their health," Koenig said. "But it also helps mental health."

Koenig offers two classes per day Monday through Wednesday.

The "light challenge" class is from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m. This class is designed for those who may have restrictions when they exercise, such as people going through rehabilitation for an injury or pregnant women. In this class, Koening and the students modify the exercises to suit their abilities.

The "energizer," or intermediate class, is from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. This class is constantly changing.

The classes may include cardio, core and calisthenics and the use of free weights, ballast balls, steps and mini trampolines.

Koenig has taught exercise classes since 1984. She has taught in Williams since 1996. She said she teaches because she enjoys the students.

"I really really enjoy the participants," she said. "I enjoy helping them, and of course it helps me to."

Koening encouraged people to use the buddy system when they exercise, so they can encourage each other to attend classes.

"It's a way to connect to your community while taking care of yourself and helping your own physical fitness," Koening said of the classes.

Koenig offers her classes on a donation basis, so if someone is financially unable to pay they can still attend.

More information about the classes is available from Koening at (928) 310-6153.
