Kathy Freedlund

For me, it's all about HOPE. Helping Other People Exercise. We all want to be healthy. There are so many advantages to keeping the body moving.

Here at Batavia, our classes are judgment-free and noncompetitive. It's all about helping the individual improve both their mental & physical health, whether it's through fitness classes or yoga classes. All are beneficial to our minds & bodies. That's why I LOVE being part of the team!

I am nationally certified in fitness & water fitness have my 500-hour yoga certification through NACYT. I completed the Therapeutic Yoga for Seniors Professional Training at the Duke Center for Integrative medicine. My specialty is yoga for baby boomers & up. We are proud of the years of experience & continued furthering of our education, shown by all of our seasoned fitness instructors.

Pat Heun

I've been doing fitness classes for almost 18 years & teach weights/resistance training including TRX & cardio/boot camp/interval training. I initially started coming to BPD with a friend when the Park District was introducing step aerobics. My friend dropped out & I kept coming because I enjoyed exercising. I saw a huge improvement in my stamina, sleep & stress levels, & it also gave me ``gobs'' of energy. I wanted everyone could feel the same way, so I became an instructor at the age of 50. It's such a pleasure to teach at BPD - both the instructors & patrons are wonderful to work with!

Maureen McGee

There's no place like home, that's the Batavia Park District for me! I was once a participant in a variety of classes and now I am teaching a variety of classes. I am certified in group fitness by NETA and I hold a certification in TRX Group Training, Piloxing, Kettle Bell, and Barre Group Fitness.
I'm glad to be an instrument in helping others achive their fitness goals.
