STRENGTH TRAINING BASICS

This class is easier than our Stronger Today class. Would you like to learn how to lift weights? Are you just starting a fitness program? Class participants will learn the basics of strength training. This is a beginner level class and everyone is welcome! You will sign a waiver the first day you come to class. Tuesday/Thursday at 11:30 a.m. (30 minutes) at BWC Studio.

STRONGER TODAY

(Strength Training 101 Continues) Learn how to lift weights correctly using weights, bands, compound exercises, and your own body weight as resistance. This class is perfect for most fitness levels; however, beginners may want to try the Strength Training Basics class first. You will increase your strength, balance, and mobility while preparing yourself to do strength training at home on your own too. Tuesday/Thursday at 12:00 p.m. (40 minutes) at BWC Studio.

Living the Good Life Challenge!

Starts on February 12th!
Description: This lifestyle challenge incorporates exercise, wellness, and nutrition points. It is geared to get you moving or keep you moving while also introducing good habits. You may choose from two different conferences: Mission Possible or The Incredibles. Mission Possible is encouraged to get 30-45 minutes of exercise 4 to 5 days per week. The Incredibles are encouraged to get 60 minutes or more of exercise 6 to 7 days per week.
Rules: Get as many exercise, wellness, and nutrition points as you can each day. Please note: you are limited to 16 wellness and 16 nutrition points each day, but exercise points are unlimited. If you are in the Mission Possible conference and continually match the exercise goals set for The Incredibles, you will be moved to that group to keep the challenge more equitable.
Prizes: Ranking is based on exercise and wellness points together. The top 2 people in each conference will win a Fitbit Charge 2 or any lesser model (excluding special editions)! Everyone else who participates can choose from a variety of other WellU swag (cooler duffel bags and backpacks included). Join through the link below...
