South Suburban offers fitness program
South Suburban Parks and Recreation kicks off the New Year with Passport to Health, a free fitness and wellness rewards program designed to help patrons improve their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. The brand new program will debut Jan. 1 to coincide with New Year’s resolutions, which often include weight loss and self-improvement.
Participants of Passport to Health need to register for the program, which will run from Jan. 1 through Feb. 28. Participation is strictly voluntary and open to residents and non-residents alike. Registration is available at any South Suburban recreation center.
Passport to Health features an accompanying Fit Pass booklet, which is similar to a passport, and offers 30 activities and ideas for participants to try, including giving up a bad habit for a day, trying a game of Pickleball, or an aqua class, or attending a free Coffee and Chat class. Activities are assigned points and participants keep track of their progress. Some activities require the signature of an instructor while others depend on the honor system.
Participants can begin recording activities on Jan. 1, and all points need to be earned by Feb. 28. Completed booklets must be turned in by March 7 to any South Suburban recreation center.
TRX suspension training at Goodson
TRX suspension training is now available in Goodson Recreation Center’s weight room. The TRX S-Frame, previously dedicated to TRX small group training classes, is now available for all.
TRX incorporates bodyweight suspension training, a technique that uses a person’s body weight and gravity to perform hundreds of functional exercises. The equipment is available, first-come, first-served with admission to the center.
The next TRX suspension small group training sessions begin in January. To register online, visit www.sspr.org. For those who want a customized TRX workout, individual and semi-private training sessions are available at two South Suburban facilities: Goodson Recreation Center, 6315 S. University Blvd., Centennial and Buck Recreation Center, 2004 W. Powers Ave., Littleton. To schedule an appointment, call 303-483-7089.
