Community Fitness Program
Offered at UW-Eau Claire
MAILED: Sept. 14, 1999|
A program geared toward adults looking for a regular, supervised exercise program will begin its second year Monday, Sept. 27, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
The Community Fitness Program targets individuals not currently exercising, as well as those who have finished cardiac rehabilitation programs at the local hospitals but are not exercising independently.
The program will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday through the fall semester on the indoor track in the Olson Addition of McPhee Physical Education Center. During the sessions, participants typically will walk for the endurance workout, but they may also jog, swim, ride a stationary bicycle or use a stair climber. The program includes components of strength and flexibility, as well as education on beginning exercise sensibly and the benefits to expect from regular exercise workouts.
Dr. Don Bredle, assistant professor of kinesiology and athletics, and local physician Dr. Lou Frase will supervise the program. Kinesiology students lead the exercise sessions, log the workouts and help monitor the participants' blood pressures and heart rates.
The program is open to the community as well as faculty and staff of UW-Eau Claire. The $75 fee for the program includes an entry assessment with a medical history questionnaire, appraisal of current fitness level, goal setting, a T-shirt and use of the McPhee weight room.
Those interested in the program should contact Bredle at (715) 836-3953 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
