For people who have spent the last month slumped on the couch with a bag of potato chips, it's time to jump to your feet and yell, "Ten-hut!"

Holistic Health and Fitness, 420 Breeze St., is hosting BOOTCAMP, a workout program designed to whip people back into shape after the holiday break. The 12-week training session carries into the spring and is open for people of all fitness levels

Holistic co-owner Karrie Booth, who runs the program, said the purpose is not only for students to lose winter weight but to also get healthier altogether.

"We'll have some fun stuff, but we want people to step outside their comfort zone, too," she said. "We want people to get the year started right and set goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle."

The cost for BOOTCAMP is $99 for regular members and $199 for non-members.

Booth said the fee is worth the payback people will see after the exercise starts to have an impact.

Space is limited for people wanting to sign up.

Booth will host an orientation at 6 p.m. tonight before the program kicks off Wednesday. Classes run from 6 to 7 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Holistic will continue to offer classes in Qi Gong, yoga, Zumba and Pilates, as well. Booth said she plans to feature new deals as the year progresses.

Hearing aid supplier branch to host open house for new location

If you're having difficulties of an audio nature, finding the right kind of assistance can be hard. But, a change in a familiar business will make it easier to get your ears just the way they need to be.

The Hearing Aid Office will be relocating its Craig office to 1280 Industrial Ave., the former site of Colorado Northwestern Community College's cosmetology program. Owner Cindy Hoest said she will host an open house Jan. 10 to let people get a feel for the surroundings before she officially opens for business Jan. 11.

Hoest said the new location will be a boon to people looking for easy access to her services.

"At our old building, it could be hard just to get to the door because we were in the basement," she said. "It was kind of a hand-me-down place, so this place will just be a lot newer and cleaner. It's the same faces people know, just a new place."

The office was previously located in the lower part of Craig Medical Center at 580 Pershing St.

Hoest, a hearing instrument specialist with 33 years of experience, travels to Craig regularly from her Glenwood Springs office.

She said she will have equipment such as a sound booth for hearing tests and a video otoscope complete with computer attachments.

"It lets me see right inside a person's ear and we can both see what's happening on the screen," she said.

Hoest sells hearing aids and batteries and offers services such as programming, counseling and ear-cleaning.

Prices for hearing aids range from $900 to $3,400.

"We try to match the needs to the product," she said. "Not everyone needs a $3,000 one."

Hoest said she will offer coupons for hearing tests at the open house for interested parties.

Business hours for The Hearing Aid Office are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesdays or by appointment. For more information, call 824-2440 or 800-243-6440 or visit
