FORT RUCKER, Ala. (Jan. 19, 2016) -- Motivation can be in short supply during the coldest months of winter, but the Fort Rucker Directorate of Family, and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Sports, Fitness and Aquatics Branch’s group fitness schedule offers a variety of activities to help the community keep fit and warm indoors.
“It can be difficult to motivate yourself to work out after the holiday session and when the weather gets colder,” Lynn Avila, DFMWR fitness programs coordinator, said. “Our group fitness schedule offers a variety of classes designed to meet any fitness level and help that person accomplish their individual goal.”
According to Avila, Fort Rucker’s physical fitness centers bring a few new surprises for patrons this year.
“Our schedule contains new group fitness classes, including Cardio Strength Intervals, Total Body Tone and TNT, or Tight and Tone,” she said. “These classes are new offerings from recent additions to our staff. Patrons can look forward to meeting a few new highly-motivated and highly-qualified fitness instructors this year.”
The first class is free. Each class afterwards is $3.50 per class, $15 for two weeks of unlimited classes or $30 for one month of unlimited classes.
Classes are open to military ID card holders, DOD personnel and contractors. Youth under the age of 13 are not allowed to attend fitness classes as a participant or spectator.
Avila added that changes can also be seen outside the classroom.
“Several new pieces of equipment will be coming in to Fortenberry-Colton Physical Fitness Center,” she said. “We are excited to receive eight new treadmills, new ellipticals, recumbent and upright bikes, and more. These pieces will steadily come in over the next few weeks.”
New treadmills have already matriculated into the PFC and, according to Avila, the remaining equipment will arrive in the coming months.
