Fitness and wellness on tap for SIR #92 Oakmont Berger Center

Tuesday March 14th -

SIR Branch #92 will hear from John Phillips about wellness and fitness for mature adults at its monthly meeting on March 14. Phillips is the Oakmont Fitness Center’s trainer. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Health and Wellness from the University of Nevada, Reno. He is a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and active member of Idea Health and Fitness Association. He continues to study any information available regarding the training and health of mature adults, and obtain continuing education certificates. He also holds certificates as a Fitness Nutrition Specialist, BOSU instructor, and Mat Pilates instructor.

Phillips began training at a moderate sized fitness center in Reno, and then moved to San Francisco where he trained with 24 Hour Fitness, which brought him to Santa Rosa and eventually to Oakmont in 2008. Phillips enjoys working with a more mature clientele, “They present some very interesting situations that really, at times, make me think, I really enjoy the challenges.”

SIR #92 is a social club for retired gentlemen and is part of a statewide network of over 150 clubs. The group meets monthly on the second Tuesday at the Berger Center, starting with a happy hour at 11:15 a.m., followed by a catered luncheon, and interesting speaker.
