We host three opportunities for fellowship and exercise: a twice-weekly Fitness Class, a three-times-a-week Mommy and Me Class, and a Friday night Men’s Basketball Fellowship.
Fitness Class is open to all and located in the fellowship hall of the church from 6:15pm – 7pm every Tuesday and Thursday. Instructor Chris Taylor, is trained in Personal Training and CrossFit Level 1 and certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Our program consists of the following:
- Dynamic (moving) warmup – 5 minutes
- Workout of the Day – 25 minutes of core strengthening work, which includes but is not limited to: short jogs/fast walks, jumping rope, squats, functional movements with dumbbells and kettlebells, and mat work, such as stretches, pushups, abdominal work, etc.
- Isometrics (Planks as an example) and Abdominal Routine – 10 minutes
- Cool Down Stretch – 5 minutes
Occasionally, our class offers visiting yoga instruction as well.
Anyone is welcome, regardless of age, weight, or gender, although our class membership is predominantly ages 40-80. All exercises have substitutions based on your level of need. All work is geared toward creating full range of motion and combatting osteoarthritis.
There is a minimal charge for the cost of $5/class for the equipment and the planning and time of the instructor. A percentage of the funds are directed to the offering. There are often challenges where those funds are waived.
