The Spruce Avenue Community League board couldn’t believe its luck when local resident Trisha Mitchell offered to teach a six week PiYo LIVE fitness class at the hall—for free.

Starting May 25, Mitchell will teach classes Thursdays from 7-8 pm until June 29. The series of classes are available for anyone who signs up for the six-week course, although Mitchell said she’d like for league members and community residents to try the class.

“PiYo LIVE is a low-impact workout providing cardio and strength work to get you high intensity results,” said Mitchell. “[PiYo] is an athletic program driven by music and inspired by pilates and yoga. It helps with flexibility and strength while conditioning the body with dynamic movements. We will be working on the fundamentals of the routine and with each week we will progress forward.”

Not to worry, you don’t need to have previous experience. Mitchell will provide modifications for beginners and for advanced participants. Mitchell, who said she’s always enjoyed exercising, tried PiYo soon after giving birth to her second child.

“It is challenging in all the right ways and I saw results,” said Mitchell.  “I couldn’t wait to learn this program to allow me to teach and share with others. This is such an amazing program for all fitness levels and ages.”

Mitchell explained the league is offering PiYo as a pilot program, but she is confident people will like it.

“I believe once people start, they will be hooked!” said Mitchell. “After this initial series, we will see how it went and make a decision together about offering future classes.”

Twenty spots are available on a first come, first serve basis. Register online at
