Check out upcoming fitness center classes and events, designed with you in mind to help you be active, get fit, and feel your best!

Daily stress, sleepless nights, regretful snacking habits, and limited time leave us all lagging sometimes. Numerous studies have shown that just 30 minutes of physical activity five days a week can help with all that—not to mention provide many other health benefits. While time these days is hard to come by, the James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness is offering some incentives to help make it easier for you to start fitting in some of that much-needed you-time.  

3 on 3 Basketball Tournament 

One of our intern staff members has chosen to put on a 3 on 3 basketball tournament to invoke a little competition in members of the fitness center. The tournament will take place on Friday, July 25, at 6:00 p.m. in Zink Hall Gym B. Sign up in the fitness center by the day of the event as a team or free agent.

The tournament is open to members and nonmembers. Members are free, and nonmembers are $5 per player and must be on a team with at least one member. Free agents can sub in or form a team with other free agents on the day of the tournament.

See the flyer for more details. Hope to see you there!

cardio crunch Cardio Crunch Group Fitness: More than just crunches

The core muscles are the muscles deep within the abs and back that attach to the spine and pelvis. By mixing intervals of cardiovascular and abdominal exercises, you heart rate will be elevated while your core muscles are being toned and fat is blasted away fast.

Anyone at any level of fitness can join the class and work at their own pace. During the class, participants will take turns between exerting high levels of cardiovascular effort and completing exercises that will strengthen muscles deep within the core. Interval training that focuses on the core muscles can help the abdominal region become more defined and the entire core to become stronger making completing everyday activities easier, allowing clothes to fit better, and increasing confidence.

The class is led by Brittany Redmond and is held on Thursdays at 12:00 p.m. starting June 12 and will continue until August 14. Members are welcome free of charge, and nonmembers are welcome for a fee of $5 per class, which also includes use of the fitness center on that day. 

Body SculptingBody Sculpting Group Fitness: Not your average workout

Classes will be on Tuesdays at 5:45 a.m. from May 13 to August 12 and will be led by Brittany Redmond. The cost is free for members and $5 per class for nonmembers (includes use of gym for that day).

Start your day off right! Body Sculpting uses body weight as well as low to moderate weights for resistance training paired with high repetitions. Training will increase muscle endurance, strength, and power while burning fat.   

Weight training burns calories during and after your work out and continues to boosts your metabolism even after you’ve finished. This is not your average weight training program and is welcome to all fitness levels with modifications for everyone! You will work hard at your own level of high intensity interval training and have fun while doing it!  

Body Boot CampBody Boot Camp

Look for classes to resume in August or September.

Through various high- and low-impact exercises using body-weight resistance, you’ll work your entire body, improving your strength, cardio, and endurance with a variety of kicks, push-ups, jumps, squats, and other get-fit-fast moves. Take the maneuvers you learn in training and add them to your own workouts. The class will be led by Doug Forlano, who is also one of our personal trainers. Come see for yourself how contagious his energy is!

If you’re already a member of the fitness center, come for free. If you’re not a member, pay $5 per class, then take advantage of using the fitness center afterwards.

We’ve extended Bring a Friend Wednesdays! On Wednesdays each week, members are invited to learn the benefits of exercising with a friend by bringing one guest with them to work out. Please be sure to check in at the front desk and have your guest sign in also. We hope this allows our members and potential members to realize the power found in numbers to make sticking with an exercise plan more enjoyable. 


Samaritan's Purse LogoFourth Annual 5K Run/Walk

Thank you to everyone who helped make our event a major success this year. The James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness Fourth Annual 5K had over 75 participants running or walking and others who came out to participate in the raffle drawing and support Samaritan’s Purse in other ways. Through donations from businesses and individuals like you towards the operations or raffle drawing for our event, we were able to donate $1,200 to the Sports Gear Project of Samaritan’s Purse.

For every $8 we donated, one piece of soccer equipment was purchased in a town near Cambodia and given to children who may not have gotten the chance to enjoy sports any other way. This means we were able to donate 150 pieces of equipment for these children to enjoy!

Visit the 5K event page for race results , and check out our Facebook page for photos. Thanks again for helping to make this a huge success and joining in the fun!
