The Derby City Dragons staying Dragon Strong during the off-season

Louisville, Kentucky’s Derby City Dragons are staying Dragon Strong during the off-season with workouts available via zoom and in-person at several community partner venues including Gilda’s Club, The Thrive Center, Anchorage Presbyterian Church and when the weather permits, the Louisville Community boathouse.

Our team has 3 certified fitness instructors. Ellen and Carol lead classes locally while Georgianna (who lives in Bradenton, Florida), offers workouts via Zoom 3 mornings a week. Our workouts focus on flexibility, upper and lower body strength, core strength, and cardio. We offer weight training, abs, butts and thigh focused workouts, and cardio workouts in various formats including HIIT workouts (High-Intensity Interval Training).

For the first time we’re offering an incentive to encourage off-season participation which has been well received and our participation numbers are up! Our goal is to begin the paddling season stronger than ever!
