Other options

We have many options for those looking for exercise or recreation outside of a traditional class!

Fitness Center Kickstart Consultations

Feeling stuck in your workout, or not sure where to begin your fitness journey? Schedule a Fitness Center Consultation with our wellness coordinator, Carly Lenz! While this is not one-on-one personal training, it is more than a basic orientation. Your personal fitness goals will guide the effort, with the chance to add more as you are ready.

During the initial 45-minute meeting, you will set a goal and establish a routine to help you meet that goal. You will explore Fitness Center machines that interest you and learn some exercises you can do in our wonderful facility.

Throughout the next month, work toward your goal, with brief check-ins with Carly in person or via email to help you stay on track.

At the end of a month, schedule a follow-up meeting of 15 to 30 minutes to assess your progress and get set up so you can achieve continued success on your own.

To participate: This opportunity is open to Fitness Center members with a 6-month or year membership. Fee is $25 ($20 for those ages 62 and above), payable by cash or check in our office.
