Fitness classes offered this summer

Posted April 17, 2017

Plymouth School District Community Education & Recreation is offering Fit Club again this summer and several fitness classes beginning in May.

Fit Club utilizes the greatest tools in regular exercise: accountability, variety and group support. Fit Club members get a four-month Fitness Center membership, the opportunity to join fitness and aquatic classes as space allows, weekly group meetings, and a personalized fitness plan, all for one great price. Weekly meetings will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays from May 9 to Aug. 22 (except July 4) in the Community Fitness Center at Plymouth High School, 125 Highland Ave. Fee is $98 ($78 for for Generations members and district residents ages 62 and up) until April 28, then $108.
