YWCA Bristol Women’s Fitness Spa
The YWCA Bristol Women’s Fitness Spa is gearing up for its
annual women’s Turkey Trot and Gobbler’s Gait 5K run/walk by offering an
eight-week conditioning program from Sept. 23 to Nov. 14.
Designed to motivate and prepare participants, the program will be lead by
YWfitness professionals. Participating will be guided through progressive
intervals of walking and running that will safely and gradually build up
endurance and stamina for the 5K run. Training will take place on the Turkey
Trot race route, a certified and newly modified course that stretches across
“Trotters” also will be instructed on proper techniques for warming up,
stretching and race nutrition.
The program is free for YWFitness Spa members and $80 for non-members.
Non-members will be entitled to use the YW Fitness Spa free of charge,
including the whirlpool, sauna and steam room, during their conditioning phase.
“Our training program offers morning and evening classes that are specifically
designed for participants of all fitness levels,” said Jacqueline Abshire, the
YWCA fitness director. “Our certified trainers will motivate, inspire and guide
runners throughout the eight weeks in preparation for our 33rd annual Turkey
Trot and Gobbler’s Gait on Nov. 16.”
Ladies 13 and older are encouraged to call YWCA Bristol at 423-968-9444 for
