The Fitness Center in the new addition on the south end of PHS is open to community members! Three times larger than its predecessor, it features new circuit training, free weights and cardio machines.
Please note that students ages 11 and up living in the district can use the Fitness Center for free, though students in grades 5 and 6 must be accompanied by an adult and students in grades 7 and 8 need permission from a parent or guardian.
Heather Bassett has joined the Community Fitness Center staff as a Certified Personal Trainer. She is providing intake assessments and orientation sessions for any interested Fitness Center members.
Assessments take about 45 minutes and include a lifestyle questionnaire and a short movement assessment. “I will use these to provide a general recommendation of focus areas and suggest a few exercises or equipment that may help the clients reach their goals,” she said.
Mrs. Bassett is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. Her personal experience as an athlete ranges from cross country skiing to mixed martial arts. “I am looking forward to meeting more Plymouth community members and helping them on their journey to fitness,” she said.
Intake assessments are available by appointment between 5 and 7 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays; evening and Saturday appointments also may be possible. Fee is $25, plus participants must have a Fitness Center membership. If interested, please contact Community Ed & Rec at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-892-5068 to make an appointment.
Community members are able to walk Plymouth High School hallways (afternoons only) and the indoor track in the new multi-purpose facility during designated times.
Park in the student lot or in the visitor lot in front of the new addition and enter Door 18 (Community Ed & Rec/District entrance). No pre-registration is necessary and walking is free, but please sign the roster located outside the Fitness Center each time you visit.
Please note that wheels – strollers, walkers, wheelchairs, etc. – are not allowed on the track as they may damage the surface, and participants must wear athletic shoes. Food and gum are not allowed, and the only permitted beverage is plain water in covered containers – no flavored water, as it may stain the track surface.
