Area residents are encouraged to lace up their tennis shoes and join the Johnson Fitness Center for a new “Fitness Friday” series.
Free and open to the public, Fitness Fridays will take place on the third Friday of each month. The first event, which will take on a “Barbells and Brunch” theme, is slated for Jan. 18 from 10-11 a.m. at the JFC. In addition to learning how to create a personalized weightlifting plan, healthy brunch options will be available for participants.
“We’re so excited to launch the Fitness Fridays series,” said Fitness Center Coordinator Haley Sorenson. “Throughout the spring semester, we plan to cover a diverse scope of topics to help people make a plan and achieve their goals safely.”
Fitness Fridays will alternate between presentations by area professionals and exercise classes.
Presentation topics will include information about body building, weight loss, proper exercise technique and form, terminology, designing workout programs and more.
“Currently, we plan to start with one Fitness Friday per month, but if there becomes more of an interest, we hope to host additional events,” explained Sorenson.
Stay tuned for more information about upcoming Fitness Friday events, which are scheduled to take place throughout the semester Feb. 15, March 15 and April 19.
