Strength Train To Slim Down with Jazzercise
When you think Jazzercise you may think only of dance but each class also combats sarcopenia, or the loss of muscle. This is important because losing muscle means sacrificing your strength and postural support. Also, if you lose muscle with age, then your metabolism slows down, and you inevitably gain weight. Fortunately muscle loss can be slowed and reversed with strength training. Every Jazzercise class incorporates muscle building exercises to fight sarcopenia. Women do not need to be afraid of “bulking up like a body builder”, this fear is unfounded. More to be feared is the loss of strength and slowed metabolism. So let’s do some reps.

News from The Village Vets
The Village Vets continues to be the leader in the Atlanta veterinary community in supporting local rescue groups by offering low-cost veterinary services. Witnessing the negative impact that the downward trend of our economy has had on local rescue groups, we have decided to take action with our “Rescue Recovery Plan”.

In addition to the low-cost services that we currently offer, we will now offer free spays and neuters for our Atlanta area registered/non-profit rescue groups. We are proud to partner with them, and to be able to provide this service. Visit our website for more info on ways you can help support local rescue groups.
