Fitness can be contagious, especially in families.

For the Rileys, it all began when 70-year-old Dixie Riley of St. Charles started working out with the help of Jackie Kold Fitness and Yoga in St. Charles.

Soon after, her daughter-in-law Kristy Riley began personal training sessions with Kold. And Riley’s daughter, Maggie, along with Riley’s niece Sarah Black took part in a special yoga workshop offered by the studio.

“I’m seeing more and more families contact me,” says Kold, a certified trainer and yoga instructor. “I’ve got a grandfather, two granddaughters and their parents doing a yoga session together ... .

“You can bring all levels together and all get what you need,” she continues. “It’s not like you’re just going to a yoga class. You’re bringing togetherness to your families. There’s a lot of laughter.”
