The Portage Health Fitness Center is starting a program called “Exercise Made Simple,” to help people who may not feel comfortable taking the first step towards a healthier lifestyle.
“We want people to feel comfortable, we want them to succeed,” Community Health Coordinator Angela Luskin said. “This class is specifically designed for those interested in starting an exercise program, expanding into newer areas or those unsure of how to get started.”
The program includes working with a professional that will ease people into an active lifestyle. The class is offered Mondays and Wednesdays from noon to 12:45 p.m. Each month the class will dive into a different topic with one of Portage Health’s personal trainers.
Exercise Made Simple is $25 / month, or $60 for an entire three-month program. The program is being limited to the first 12 people to sign up. The winter session includes strength training from Dec. 2 to Dec. 23, gentle yoga from Jan. 6 to Jan. 29 and indoor cycling from Feb. 3 to Feb. 26.
To sign up, call the fitness center at (906) 483-1149. Visit portagehealth.org/fitnesscenter to learn more about the Portage Health Fitness Center, and portagehealth.org/exercisemadesimple for more information on the new program.
