Grinnell Regional Wellness and Fitness Center offers a new group exercise class targeted to individuals wanting an intensive workout that’s integrates team approach to exercise and fitness. This offering complements the list of courses and fitness options designed to meet all levels of fitness and ages.
“We’ll use a large team component as well as circuit format to energize participants in a boot camp culture,” explains Holly Pettlon, GRMC wellness specialist and instructor. “The one-hour class will change depending on the weather so, for example, we may be outside running and relays or a tug of war with ropes. Our goal is create an supportive environment where participants can work together and encourage each other, with a full understanding that individuals will be at different fitness levels. We’ll push the limits in this high energy class with encouragement and team support.”
Like all exercise classes offered at GRMC, this will include the option to have pre and post class fitness testing. Membership in the GRMC fitness center also entitles members to a free monthly personal coaching session.
“We want participants to focus on progress in health not focus on numbers or measurements. We teach life-long wellness that encourages families to build healthy habits and exercise options,” Pettlon adds.
The Boot Camp class will be offered in six-week increments. The first class will begin Thursday, Nov. 1, at 5:15 p.m. It will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays, until Dec. 6. Individuals interested may reserve a space by calling the GRMC Wellness and Fitness Center at 641-236-2999. Registration is requested but not required.
