The YMCA of Beaufort County, located at 1801 Richmond Ave. in Port Royal, will host a free workshop entitled ‘Spintensity,’ on Saturday, August 31, from 10:30 -11:30 a.m. Led by Howard Bayne, a Johnny G. Spinning and Redcross CPR certified YMCA member, the goal of the workshop is to build awareness on the importance of understanding your heart rate and how to monitor it during exercise. Members and non-members are welcome.  No RSVP required.

“Most people have either heard or understand that they should monitor their heart rate…but many don’t know why. While safety and success are two factors, Howard will be offering a full education on this integral part of any fitness program. We believe it is so important that we’re opening it up to YMCA members and non-members alike,” YMCA Fitness Director Denice Davis said.
