The third and final warm-up event for the Ghostly Gallop 5K, “Strength and Stretching for Runners,” will be held Thursday 6:30 p.m. at the Hudson Area Library.

Runners and walkers can learn at the free clinic how strength training and stretching can improve their fitness and performance.

Kylah Campeta and Rachel Kelly of LYF Fitness in Hudson will lead the session, which will include demonstrations of strength training and stretching techniques.

Entrepreneur and LYF Studio owner Campeta has been in fitness for more than 10 years. With a BA in dance and a sports medicine degree from Marist College, she prides herself on realistic lifetime goals specialized to individual needs and always put safety and comfort first. Kelly is a Pilates instructor and has been practicing since 2011. She completed her certification at the Pilates Sports Center, a comprehensive course in all apparatus and mat.

“We will focus on moves that strengthen the core and mix in others that help with speed and endurance,” Campeta said. “LYF Fitness is very excited this year to grow its team for the Ghostly Gallop. Everyone who enters under Team LYF will receive a free t-shirt and a 5K running plan.”
