New Orleans, Rosh Ha’Ayin women to get Fit2Gether

As part of the Partnership2Gether relationship between the New Orleans Jewish community and Israeli partner city Rosh Ha’Ayin, 16 women will be working to get Fit2Gether.

This fall, eight New Orleans women and eight Rosh Ha’Ayin women will work through December to reach fitness goals.

Each group will meet regularly to exercise and to attend classes on stress reduction, healthy cooking, meditation and more. In December, the New Orleans Fit2Gether group will welcome their Israeli counterparts for five days of Health and Fitness related activities, New Orleans Style.

Fit2Gether will begin in mid-October. The exact start date will be determined by the group, with the program set to end in mid-December. The cost is $150 per person, which includes a certified personal trainer once a week for group sessions, plus e-support, personalized goal setting and tracking.

Guest speakers will share healthy living practices, tips for lighter cooking, the best ways to shop green and relaxation techniques. All group activity program equipment will be provided.

Participants will receive a Fit2gether T-shirt, motivation and countless support from new friends in both New Orleans and Rosh Ha’ayin. Contact Jody Braunig at (504) 780-5688 or email jody (at) jewishnola (dot) com for more information. An informational meeting is tentatively planned for after Sukkot.

This program is open to the first eight women who sign up.
