Thanks to the Aspen core

Dear Editor:I would like to personally thank the Aspen Club & Spa for hosting our official launch of the RIP-COREFX group exercise class last Tuesday, Nov. 9.My name is Pete Holman; I am a local physical therapist and personal trainer here in Aspen. My partner, Bill Fabrocini, and I have developed a new training device and system of exercising called the RIP-COREFX. The RIP-COREFX has been tested extensively out of the Aspen Club & Spa. Local athletes, including Chris Klug, Gretchen Bleiler, Peter Olenick, Casey Puckett and Martina Navratilova, use the device to increase their fitness levels.The group class was taught by local snowboard Winter Games medalist and liver transplant recipient Chris Klug, who will be teaching the class every Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6:30 to 7:15 at the Aspen Club & Spa. Additionally, X Games gold medalist Peter Olenick was on hand to greet the crowd and get his own workout in!It is a special feeling to have the community support a local business that was developed right here in the heart of health and fitness: Aspen, Colorado. Thanks again for all those who participated in the event! Pete HolmanBasalt
