Hickory – STX Fit classes will be offered at Patrick Beaver Memorial Library on Monday evenings at 6:30 – 7:15pm on January 28, February 4, 11, 18, and 25. 

STX Fit is a martial arts based cardio high intensity work out to music. Classes will be led by Hickory resident Diane Christensen, a certified Easy Tai Chi Instructor and accomplished martial artist. She will provide escrima sticks for participants to use for mixing some powerful martial arts basics to the beat of the music.

Participants will get a work out while learning to wield the sticks for self-defense and cardio for self-preservation. Attendees should wear comfortable clothing for movement. Participating in the STX Fit classes is free and open to the public.
