September is here, the children are going back to school, the weather is changing, self-improvement is upon us.  September is designated as Self-Improvement Month. Here are some ways you can celebrate Self-Improvement Month at Oxford Athletic Club

Try a class and/or an exercise modality you haven’t tried before.  We offer over 150 hours of fitness classes a week.  Your body may just thank you for it.

2. Start a Smart Goal:

 think a trend is starting here, goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and timely.

It is recommended that you perform 150 minutes a week of cardiorespiratory training and perform at least 2 total body resistance training sessions.
