Dr. Carol DeFranca of Norwell Chiropractic Spinal and Sports Rehab is now offering practical and educational classes on muscles, their anatomy and how they work in a monthly class for women at PembrokeÂ’s Body to Soul Fitness, an all-female gym.

In her “Muscle of the Month” classes, Dr. DeFranca explores a new muscle region each month and discusses the best ways to exercise that particular muscle while preventing injury. “Muscle of the Month” classes are usually held on the fourth Saturday of the month, from 11:30 a. m. to 12:30 p. m. at Body to Soul Fitness, 33 Riverside Drive in Pembroke.

Upcoming “Muscle of the Month” classes will be held on May 22, June 26, July 17 and August 28, 2004.

“Exercise is very important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but when we do exercise, there is a risk of straining or tearing muscle if it’s not done right. ‘Muscle of the Month’ is a class dedicated to muscle health that teaches women all about muscles and the right way to work each muscle to prevent injury,” noted Dr. DeFranca.
