Fit in Fairview is an eight-week fitness program open to Fairview Park adult residents. Non-residents are also welcome.
Participants learn to develop healthy exercise and eating habits, and get incentives to keep up with the program.
Sponsored by Fairview Hospital, Straight from the Heart, Gemini Recreation Center and the City of Fairview Park, the program begins with a personalized assessment from 8 am to noon on Saturday, January 11, that includes lipids, blood pressure and body mass index screenings. Assessments will be followed by Monday evening Walk and Talk sessions with health experts on an indoor track. A final assessment will be taken on Saturday morning, March 8. All activities will take place at the Gemini Recreation Center in Fairview Park.
Participants will receive a Fit in Fairview T-shirt, pedometer and water bottle, and will be entered into a weekly drawing for a free 10-class punch card at the Gemini Center and other prizes. Prizes also will be awarded for the top three participants ($250 first prize, $150 second prize, $100 third prize) based on participation in walks, screenings and Gemini fitness classes.
