MANY OF US KNOW that feeling of defeat when the hill is a little too long, the stairs a little too steep, the trash a little too heavy. When, in brief, we're faced with a task we're not in shape for.

Anne Arundel Medical Center may have the answer to the problem: physical fitness classes that combine aerobics, resistance training and flexibility stretches designed for many levels of conditioning.

Classes are $5 each, or $35 for eight, to be taken within a six-week period. Baby-sitting is available, with registration, for some daytime classes. Classes include low-impact aerobics and abdominal toning, fitness interval training, and muscle endurance and strengthening.

Daytime and evening classes are available. They are held at AAMC's Community Health Education Pavilion on Jennifer Road. Information: 573-5490 or (800) 636-8773.

Concerts begin March 16

The South County Cultural Arts Society has announced that its spring concert season will begin with a free big band bash featuring the Navy's Commodores at 7:30 p.m. March 16 at Our Lady of Sorrows Hall in Owensville.

The Commodores, a specialty unit of the Navy Band, is composed of 18 jazz and big band musicians. The band plays a mixture of swing and contemporary music, and features selections from the bands of Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington and Stan Kenton.

Our Lady of Sorrows is on Owensville Road, just east of Solomons Island Road.

South County Cultural Arts' newest tradition is the second event of the concert season: the second annual Senior Prom on May 11, with Lynn Roberts and the big band Reunion. It's a not-to-be-missed opportunity to dance, as well as listen, to the real music of romance. Information: Tom Coleman, 867-0888; or George Stringer, (301) 261-5613.
