Get Fit NH To Offer Six Week High Performance Hip Clinic
Concord fitness expert’s workshop to focus on benefits of hip
Weekend warriors’ running injuries, a nagging sore back and
chronically achy knees are all very common complaints that,
surprisingly, can be caused by hip dysfunction. Sitting all day at
work can also lead to pain and decreased mobility.
Get Fit NH Concord is offering a six week series designed to restore
proper function and train the hips to work properly. Students will
learn a progressive method of restoring hip function, including
bioenergetics (proper breathing), core stability and control,
mobility, flexibility, and active self-myofascial release.
Erin Constantin, certified Functional Movement
Systems specialist and creator of the program says, “The importance
of hip flexibility to our overall health cannot be overstated. It
doesn’t just affect athletic performance. Joint health is critical
to aging well, and keeping a high level of function for our entire
life.” The six-week series is open to the public and begins with an
optional introductory workshop on Wednesday January 21 with the
series itself kicking off Wednesday February 4 at Get Fit NH in
Concord. For more information, call 344-2651 or go to
www.getfitnh.com for enrollment and
Get Fit NH offers professional group fitness and nutrition coaching

Letter To The Editor
I would like to introduce myself as a candidate running for the
position of Road Agent. My name is Scott Elliott, my family roots
go back 6 generations in the town of Epsom and have always cared
deeply for their home town. My feelings are the same and that is why
I would like to work for the residents of this town, maintaining and
keeping our roads safe.
I am a very frugal person, and with our taxes on the rise, I feel I
have the experience to maintain our roads in an efficient manner
without compromising quality and safety of work.
My work experience includes 30 plus years in the area of building
and maintaining roads, I previously worked 5 years for the highway
department in Epsom. In that time I gained extensive knowledge of
our road system and highway department.
I welcome any questions or comments you may have for
me, I can be reached by phone at 509-0595, or email at
Epsom Food Pantry
Another busy week for Ken and his workers at the Food Pantry. To
keep a well stocked pantry, it is an ongoing endeavor to keep
abreast of the needs and the ability to find the item. If it’s not
in our usual deliveries, that is where Liz takes over and is
constantly looking for deals or freebies, you name it. So, if you
have any coupons such as we get in the papers, feel free to drop
them off either at the Pantry or at my office on Route 28 North.
We received a nice donation from Planet Aid Inc. from whom we have
Also, a nice remembrance from the South Pittsfield Community Club.
It just amazes me the generosity of people not only in our town but
It goes without saying, you folks who prefer to remain anonymous,
that we are forever grateful for your support, both in money and in
food. Also the folks at our library are just wonderful with their
caring help to us.
Until next time,
