“Heidi has been an avid lover and “POUND Pro” for over a year. She resides in Sheridan, mom of two little boys (who keep her on her toes) and works in the Medical field. After living in Los Angeles for eight years, she returned home and found a love for group fitness classes. One year ago Heidi decided to take a big step and become a POUND and Zumba Instructor. The motivating factor was the bond and encouragement she found with other participants by attending group classes.
Instead of listening to music, you become the music in this exhilarating full-body workout that combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training with yoga and pilates-inspired movements. Using Ripstix®, lightly weighted drumsticks engineered specifically for exercising, POUND transformsdrumming into an incredibly effective way of working out.
Designed for all fitness levels, POUND® provides the perfect atmosphere for letting loose, getting energized, toning up and rockin’ out! The workout is easily modifiable and the alternative vibe and welcoming philosophy appeals to men and women of all ages and abilities.”
Hi. My name is Mary Pratt and I am proud to be part of Team Apex. This team is made up of fitness professionals that can assist you to achieve/maintain your fitness goals. As we all know, fitness has many moving parts. My specialty is the stretching, flexibility and mindfulness that yoga has to offer. My belief is that we all need all to include the three major parts of fitness to reap the benefits health and wellness have to offer. These include weight-lifting, cardio, and stretching. Many of us discount the benefits of stretching, “It is boring, “There is no benefits”. I felt the same way until I tried it out for one month. I was in my late 30’s and had two young children and thought, “When I exercise, it as to be the most bang for the buck.” Yoga didn’t fit that idea. Was I wrong. My back hurt, my shoulders ached, and I didn’t have that lean, toned look I desired. I tried it out. WOW!! It was tough during class, I felt sore after, and a few days later, I felt energized. It is like the icing on the cake, it brings fitness full circle. Yoga, while stretching and increasing the body’s flexibility, it also works on the little muscle fibers that encircle all the big muscles. Human muscles are made up of different kinds of fibers, known as fast twitch and slow twitch. Slow-twitch fibers are experts at slow, sustained efforts, such as holding a yoga pose, while fast-twitch fibers are called into play for quick, forceful actions, like kicking.Aug 22, 2011

Now, about me. I have lived in Angola my whole married life. I have two kids, one at home, one on their own. Because of that, at the age of 53, I am going back to school to earn my Master Degree in Teaching Students with Disabilities from Medaille. We are never too old to try something new. I love the saying “If you want something you have never had, you need to do something you have never done.” In regard to yoga: I have been practicing for about 20 years and teaching for about 15. I earned my 200 hours certification through YogaFit based out of California. I also have my group instructor, and personal training certification through NETA. My practice has included Hatha, Yin, Bikram, Power, Ashtanga, and a melding of all them. When I teach, I try to get a feel for the participants and teach to them what I feel they need. When I am teaching, my focus is on proper alignment and fun. Mariah and I are looking forward to making yoga approachable and worthwhile for the residents of Evans.
I walked into my first yoga practice five years ago not knowing what to expect. I had heard that yoga has the ability to help clear your mind as well as get you into shape, so I figured I’d give it a go. It challenged both my mind and my body, and I was instantly hooked. Less than a year later, I began my journey to becoming a yoga instructor and never looked back. What made me fall in love with yoga was that no matter what shape, size, or athletic ability you are, you can do yoga. It is an always changing practice. Yoga taught me patience, strength, and presence. I can’t wait to share it with all of you! Namaste.
