Happy 2010! We’re welcoming the New Year at the Center with exciting new elements and proven favorites. Pioneer your way through a healthier, happier year with the Center as your compass …

Start Fresh

It’s time to begin again. Whether you are a new member or a founding veteran, be inspired. Release preconceived ideas about fitness. Put aside any habitual exercise routines. Aspire to something different to spark your fitness fire.

At the Center, we’re taking an opportunistic approach to this new passage in time. We’re growing our community’s fitness and wellness foundation to remain forward-thinking in an industry that rapidly evolves.

Group Fitness: Your Exercise Support Group

The Group Fitness team will be introducing exciting new classes and programs. Throughout January, we are offering Introductory classes. It’s an excellent time to learn something new or refresh the basics. Favorites such as Pilates, Cycle, and Step classes will be held in 30-minute samplers. Make a New Year’s resolution to try something new and accomplish something healthy—and fulfill it with the Group Fitness team. Get familiar with techniques and meet wonderful instructors and members through this occasion to grow your exercise routine.

Group Fitness Instructor Jennifer shares encouraging words, “Whether it’s an extended hand, a thumbs up, or a class pledge recited in unison, each instructor has a unique approach that flavors his/her class and makes it comfortable for newbies and veterans alike.” Expand your fitness repertoire with the support of a skilled instructor and the motivation of fellow classmates.

In January, Group Fitness instructors will implement the latest Body Training Systems programs. These programs are a great opportunity to increase cardio fitness, build strength, and improve balance and flexibility through innovative workouts in a fun, supportive group environment.  We hold these launches quarterly. If you miss the ones in January, there’ll be three more opportunities throughout the year. No excuses!

Also this month, we are extending the Pilates Specials. Popular demand warranted offering these great deals into the New Year. It’s Pilates. Need we say more?

“The New Year is the perfect segue to an innovative fitness plan. Take advantage of all the programs and classes being offered. Fitness success depends on fresh routines. Your mind and body will excel, even from small changes,” advises Regional Group Fitness Director Cheryl Ziegler. Cheryl suggests you start slowly and ease your way into new methods of exercise. This will prevent discouragement (and sore muscles from doing too much too soon).

Coming Soon: Boogie Box Class

Revitalize yourself with this hot new class. Set your workout soaring with an eclectic mix of hip-hop and Latin dance infused with kickboxing, plyometric exercises, and military drills. Burn off those holiday treats in accelerated style.

We will be hosting the creators of Boogie Box as they visit from California. Join us! Experience this fitness craze firsthand from those who designed the program.  Open to all and free of charge. For details, contact Cheryl Ziegler at cheryln@fitnessandwellness.org.

Personal Training Team: Powerize Your Routine

The Personal Results Program is strong at its one-year anniversary.  Regional Fitness Director Doug Hatten spent the early half of 2009 perfecting the Program based on member feedback. Members are thriving on its interactive dynamic. With its customized nutrition, calorie, and fitness tracking, participants comment it’s like having a personal trainer 24/7.

Member Patty Byers elaborates, “The Personal Results Program took the guess work out of exercising. I checked the system throughout the day to see if I had reached my target for calories burned, level of physical activity, and step count. This instant feedback was a real motivator. I am well on my way to a healthier 2010.” Many members took advantage of the “Lose 5 Pounds in 1 Month” incentive. Discover a similar experience. Add the Personal Results Program to your list of New Year endeavors.

With an untraveled road ahead, now is a fitting time to schedule a personal trainer. Consider a package of sessions. Often the package prices are discounted and the commitment is easier after making an investment. Personal training kicks off any new exercise regimen to a powerful, effective start. Have an expert teach you the best techniques from the start. Save time and effort by not having to unlearn incorrect form, potentially unhealthy habits, or inefficient movements.

Everybody into the Pool

Reconstruct a Beginner’s Mindset

Go forth with a beginner’s outlook. Whether you’re an exercise novice or have been in the fitness circuit since childhood, make 2010 a fresh start. Be open to learning and exploring the fitness world beyond your well-traveled path. Approach wellness from a new direction. With the Center as your base, you will travel far.
