Marshall Recreation Center to host to Rec Fitness Night tomorrow


RecCenter_SquareThe Rec Center is offering several fall fitness classes, and Rec officials are inviting the MU community to try some for free from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 3.

The event will feature eight classes, and free personal training consultations will be available for the Marshall community to try.

“Rec Fitness Night is a way to show people what we have to offer,” said Heather Smith, Senior Assistant Director of Fitness. “We don’t just offer group fitness classes but we also have personal trainers who will be there to provide consultations to Marshall community members who visit.”

Rec Fitness Night will also celebrate the official launch of Les Mills BODYPUMP®. This is a new class that is included with a membership to the Recreation Center.

“Every three months BODYPUMP® releases new chorography to new music,” said Anna Blanchard, a certified Les Mills BODYPUMP® instructor. “It’s a really big deal and we want to show Marshall community members what’s new with this fast-paced weight training class.”

Among the eight different classes to be showcased on Rec Fitness Night are BODYPUMP®, Cycle-45, Hard Core, Piloxing, PiYo, and Belly Dancing. Non-members are welcome to attend the event free of charge.

The classes being demonstrated are among 35 per week that are now free with membership.
