Library Board looks to fill vacancy

The Redmond Library Board of Trustees, which advises the Mayor and City Council on library policy and promotes local interest in the library, is recruiting interested residents to fill a vacancy.

Members are appointed to five-year terms with a two-term limit. Meetings take place in the evening on the first Wednesday of odd numbered months.

Interested residents living within Redmond city limits should contact the Mayor’s office at (425) 556-2101 or download a community service application form at Mail the completed application to the Office of the Mayor, City of Redmond, P.O. Box 97010, Redmond WA 98073-9710 or fax to (425) 556-2110. If possible, include a summary of related experience.

Train with Mom

Co-founders of Element 5 Fitness, Rommel Acda and Belton Lubas, announce the May 9 launch of Train With Mom Fit-Camp as an alternative to traditional Mother’s Day gifts.

Fit-Camps will be held at the Redmond Athletic Club.

“Most mothers want to improve their fitness lifestyle so they can spend fun quality time with their children and family,” Rommel said. “Staying in shape is literally the gift that keeps giving, and what better way to accomplish that than to spend the weekend exercising with mom in a safe and fun environment?”

The free Fit-Camp is designed as a team training program and moms can bring family members of up to four people. The activities include fun strength and cardio routines designed to burn calories and stimulate the body.

The program consists of two components that are vital for success:

1. Continuous exercise to facilitate fat burn – the right way.

2. Motivation and support. The team environment provides the ideal atmosphere for motivation and emotional support to have a great workout.

“Every participant will walk away from our Fit-Camp with a better understanding of fitness and weight loss concepts. There is so much fluff marketing and misinformation targeted toward women, and we’re here to set the record straight.”

The Train With Mom Fit-Camp starts Friday, May 9 at 9 a.m. The workouts will continue on Saturday, May 10 and will be 1 1/2 hours long. All participants will receive a downloadable “Train at Home” fitness e-book, which includes our “Top Tips for Re-Inventing Your Body” and a “Fitness Test Drive” certificate.

Rommel and Belton can be contacted at (425) 296-9305 or (425) 214-4589, or e-mail for more information.
