“Athletic Health and Fitness Day” at Valencia Gym Hosts Hundreds!

health and fitness 

Senator Jack Martins “Athletic Health and Fitness Day” was a huge success this past Saturday where hundreds of members of the Elmont, Franklin Square, South Floral Park and Floral Park communities came out to learn about health and wellness issues at Elmont’s Valencia Gym.  The program was developed by Martins and Elmont’s Valencia Gym, located on Hempstead Turnpike, to promote healthy lifestyles and fitness for people of all ages.

“The turnout was sensational and a lot of fun was had by all,” said Senator Martins adding, “the specialized classes were filled and many people took the time to talk the outstanding staff of fitness experts at Valencia Gym about health issues. I‘m really glad I was able to partner with Valencia on this annual event.”

Specialized classes targeted towards health needs were provided. Sessions were held for seniors, college students, men’s and women’s fitness as well as clinics. Local fitness experts led by Lancelot Theobald, Pierre Devaris, Tony Danvers, Gael Salvant, Noam Tamir, Herve Duroseau, Mariana Alcubilla and Joyce Lopez offered their talents to attendees. Rave reviews by local residents kept the fitness team on their toes throughout the day.

The gym had free informational tables on women’s health, special protein shakes, water bottles, gym towels, massage therapy sessions, complimentary water from Senator Martins and healthy foods provided for by Valencia Gym.

“The clinics for stretching, abdominal exercises, athletic boot camps and general fitness were a complete hit,” said Senator Martins noting, “the athletic staff at Valencia and their team were real helpful and gave fitness goers one-on-one attention.”
