Sedona AZ (January 13, 2014) – The City of Sedona Parks and Recreation Department is offering a Recreational Fitness Class for adults under the expertise of a local fitness trainer and nutrition coach, James Fisher.

Fisher has nearly twenty years experience in the field of training and exercise. His four-week course begins February 2, 2015, and will be held twice a week, Monday and Thursday evenings, beginning at 4:30 p.m. Cost is $100.00 per person. Participants will meet at the Recreation Room at Posse Grounds Park, 525 Posse Ground Road, west Sedona, and classes will be held outside as weather allows.

This sports performance program for recreational athletes is designed to prevent injuries, decrease body fat, increase lean muscle mass and increase athletic performance. It is developed to be challenging and fun. Equipment used will include TRX Suspension Trainers, TRX Rip Trainers, agility ladders, medicine balls, and Slastix Pro resistance bands.

Class space is limited, so early registration is suggested. Register by contacting the city Parks and Recreation office at 928-282-7098. Technical questions concerning this class will be answered by the instructor.

aysoYouth fitness is also a priority of the Sedona Parks and Recreation Department and for those interested in the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO), please attend the AYSO meeting on Friday, February 20, 2015, at 5:30 p.m. in the City Hall Vultee Conference Room, 102 Roadrunner Drive, west Sedona.

Volunteers must register during this meeting or AYSO will not return to Sedona.

“For many years Dan Surber, with the help from other board members outside of your township, kept the program alive in both Sedona and V.O.C. by themselves. This was a huge undertaking,” AYSO Regional Commissioner Nathan Hardy stated, adding, “When Dan retired as town commissioner, and no one would step in to replace him, we had no choice but to centralize play to Clarkdale, Cottonwood and Camp Verde.”

AYSO in Sedona obligates a time commitment by those involved. All volunteers will receive free training. If you want your child to participate in AYSO soccer, bring your calendar and be prepared to sign up as a volunteer. For detailed AYSO questions, contact 928-853-7601.

A true Renaissance woman, Mary Fisher is best known for her stunning keynote address at the 1992 Republican National Convention, a speech since ranked by Oxford University as one of “the best 100 American speeches of the 20th Century.” As an artist famous for work in sculpture, handmade papers, jewelry and fiber arts, Fisher trains women worldwide to earn a dignified living using her original techniques and materials. In Sedona, her name graces the Sedona International Film Festival Theatre and she is well-recognized for generous and tireless work with many local non-profit organizations.

Ms. Fisher’s latest expression of her creative philosophy is The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet.

“Messages from my Sketchbook” is a dramatic collection of works, each approximately three by four feet, composed entirely of hand-dyed, hand-printed silk and cotton pieces embellished by the artist. The collection is based on Mary’s journals and accompanying sketchbook. As Mary journals her experiences, curious questions, deep fears or sources of laughter, she occasionally moves from words to design. The sketchbook becomes the place ideas give visual expression, and the pieces in this collection continue the visual exploration begun in Mary’s sketchbook – with evocative results.

The public is welcome to view the Mary D. Fisher exhibit during regular City Hall hours from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when the Council Chamber is not in use. For more information or to schedule an exclusive viewing, contact Nancy Lattanzi, Sedona Arts and Culture Coordinator, at 928-203-5078 or email NLattanzi@SedonaAZ.gov.
