Pietra Fitness® is coming to St. Katharine Drexel!

Pietra, meaning “rock” in Italian, is a word that reminds us of the importance of a solid foundation when building anything that is to have strength, stability, and longevity.

At Pietra Fitness, our “whole person” workouts are built upon this concept. We utilize physical exercise to promote core strength as a solid physical foundation for the rest of the body. For the soul, our workouts include prayer and meditations built upon the strongest of foundations: the rock of Christ and His Church. This powerful combination truly benefits the entire human person—restoring harmony and wholeness to both body and soul.

St. Katharine Drexel Classes for Women will be held from 6:15-7:15 pm in the Lower Level Hall on the 2nd & 4th Monday of each month, starting August 13. Join us for a complimentary introductory session on August 6 at 6:15pm in the Lower Level Hall. Visit pietrafitness.com to learn more about this program.

Contact Patty Turbak, Certified Pietra Fitness Instructor, at patty.turbak@gmail.com or 630.248.4842 with questions and for more information.
