It was February 28, 2016 and I and a few friends were at Hermon Meadows playing our first round of the year. Sure, it was a bit chilly and soggy, but we were outside hitting golf balls! At the end of the round, we had some fun hitting low iron shots across the still ice-covered pond. Now, fast forward to the spring of 2017; March has come and gone, and area courses are opening for the season.

Taking the slow path to fitness

Super Slow Zone offers an alternative to getting fit

BANGOR When conjuring up visions of fitness and workouts, often you think of people moving fast. Running, jumping, blasting through workouts quickly and doing hundreds of repetitions as fast as possible are all fairly typical. But it's not the only way to get fit.

Super Slow Zone offers an alternative way to get a workout that doesn't involve going as fast as possible, but at the same time doesn't mean taking up a lot of precious time. Lyn Bragdon is the owner and a certified instructor at Super Slow Zone and notes that each session is by appointment only, which ensures you get one-on-one time with a certified instructor. You only have to attend one or two times a week, and even then it's only for 20 to 25 minutes per session. There are no TVs, no cell phones, no mirrors and no treadmills. Workouts can be done in any attire, including business clothes (just skip the high heels). They guarantee that you will get stronger and have tracking software to monitor progress.
