New classes offered at Parks & Rec


Welcome Lori Martin

Lori Martin moved to Tehachapi from Simi Valley in September and is looking forward to teaching two new classes for parks and rec.

As a certified personal trainer and certified group exercise instructor, Lori was diagnosed with scoliosis at age 12 and placed in a “special needs” PE class. In retrospect, Lori attributes her experience to her lifelong passion for fitness, core strength, and tenacity. “I watched the other kids play basketball,” Lori said, “while I was instructed on the use of hand weights, stretching and good ’ol fashioned callisthenic exercises.”

More than 25 years later, Lori says her experiences as a personal trainer and group exercise instructor have taught her more than all of the certification courses, workshops and conferences combined she attended added together.

Silver & Strong

Lori Martin has spent several years developing a specialized exercise class specific to the needs of seniors.
