Shape up with fall fitness programs
A variety of classes are available at the Worcester County Recreation Center in Snow Hill to meet a diverse range of fitness needs.
BOSU Explode will take place Monday and Wednesday, 5:30-6:30 p.m. The BOSU ball is an effective tool used by fitness professionals. One side is completely flat, while the opposite side is a half Swiss ball. This combination provides an unstable surface, though the device itself remains stable.
The BOSU ball is an excellent tool for strength and balance training because it forces the body to utilize numerous stabilizer muscles all at one time.
BOSU Explode class will incorporate cardio, strength, agility and balance training seamlessly into one, non-stop workout.
Early Bird Fitness Class takes place Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9-9:40 a.m. and includes walking, strength training, and exercise focusing on flexibility and coordination.
Lunch Time Fitness is held each Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from noon to 12:30 p.m. The moderate level class is part of a partnership between WCRP and the Health Department and includes step, strength and flexibility exercises.
Classes cost $35 per person, per class for each 12-week session.
Those who enjoy working out on their own are invited to walk/jog or personalize a fitness routine at the recreation center. The facility includes a climate controlled, 40,000- square-foot gymnasium with a four-lane walking track and multi-purpose courts. The shock-absorbing cushioned floor provides a surface that is ideal for walkers and joggers and particularly those who suffer from arthritis or have past injuries. This service is free to all, and shower facilities are available.
