Spring Fitness by Kim Evans, Personal Trainer/Group Exercise Instructor

If your kids are playing a spring sport and your evenings are spent at the soccer field or baseball diamonds while they practice, take advantage of that time to get a workout in.  Bring a jump rope or hand weights to use for a quick circuit workout alternating cardio and strength moves.  Gather up the other parents and walk around the fields or parking lots while your kids get their practice in.

Golfers are dusting off their clubs and thinking about getting out on the links.  One of the most effective workouts for improving your game is TRX Suspension Training.  This unique workout focuses on stability, rotation, balance and strength all done with your own body weight.  SLCFAC offers several TRX classes each week, all taught by certified instructors; so check out the group exercise schedule and try out this amazing workout.

Outdoor water sport season is just around the corner and this is an excellent time to get your kids in swim lessons and get yourself in the pool.  If you spend time at the beach, pool or on a boat, it is a good idea to brush up on your swimming skills so that you are confident that everyone will have a fun and safe time this summer.  Be sure to check out the swim lesson options available at SLCFAC.  In addition to lessons, there are group exercise classes in both shallow and deep water to keep you active and moving.

Spring is a time of optimism and renewal, which makes it a great time to step up your fitness routine.  Be sure to check out all of the land and water group exercise classes that are offered at SLCFAC.  There are also certified personal trainers available to help you meet your fitness goals.  

Get outside in the fresh air!  This time of the year is a wonderful time to be living in Western Michigan.
