beachfit2 This week and next, you can get fit with fitness expert Tom Holland in the fresh morning air of Jetties Beach. Each morning from 8 to 9 am Monday through Friday, August 3-14, this acclaimed exercise physiologist will lead participants through 60 minutes of cardiovascular drills, strength training, abdominal work, flexibility training, team drills, and games to hone agility and coordination.

A Certified Sports Nutritionist as well as an Exercise Physiologist, he is Bowflex’s Fitness Advisor, and his workouts have appeared in SELF, Shape, Fitness, Oxygen, Men’s Health, and other national magazines.
