Stone Harbor Rec Offers Video Classes

Posted May 19th 2020

Fitness instructor Nancy Crafts has been teaching a Stone Harbor Recreation class for more than five years. A loyal group of women participate in her Sit and Be Fit class, which is a safe and useful fitness routine for those who might need a chair or balance to exercise. Unfortunately, when the coronavirus pandemic hit Cape May County, the classes were forced to shut down, and attendees were missing their fitness and social gatherings each week.
Stone Harbor Mayor Judith Davies-Dunhour and Recreation Director Tina Prickett worked together to arrange for a filming of the class to make available to participants. The class was filmed by Jordan Hickman and, in addition to this class, Hickman also filmed a Dynamic Class taught by Carol Matthews. Users maintaining their daily fitness routine can follow the classes at home. If classes require equipment, the recreation department will deliver weights, exercise balls, figure eights and more.
“This video project is indicative of our town’s understanding that good health, both mental and physical, relies on our citizens moving their muscles,” Crafts said. “These stressful times make it even more crucial that exercise become part of our coping mechanism in our quest for strength and good health.”
The videos were such a hit that two additional videos, Cardio Strength and a combination Yoga class, were created. Videos are easily accessible by going to Plans for more videos are in the works with the help of Tourism Director Jenny Olson, who is working on building a full library of at-home fitness resources.
“Nancy is such an asset to our recreation programming,” Prickett said. “She has such a passion for wellness, and it is amazing to offer these videos so she can maintain her relationships with our community during these difficult times.”
