Journey to the Rec

As fall begins, the weather is changing, the kids are back in the swing of school and the Westlake Recreation Center has started its fall programming. We have classes, events and programs for people of all ages. If you're looking for something for the kids or something for yourself we have what you want.  Listed below are just some of the great programs we have starting within the next week or so and if you do not see what you are looking for give us a call or check out our website.

Yoga can make you feel relaxed, relieve stress and improve your flexibility. The Westlake Recreation Center offers several of these yoga classes. Parents and children can take a yoga class together to learn the moves in Parent/Child Yoga or if the child would like to take a class by his/her self we have Yoga Kids. Both classes will start September 27.

The DEN is for kids to get the chance to work out and learn about a healthy lifestyle. DEN Intro will teach the kids these valuable skills and allow them to earn a DEN membership. FITastic Open DEN is for those who have special needs that would like to take advantage of the DEN and use its equipment.

You might be wondering what fitness classes we have to offer to the adults. Well there is more than enough. We have classes for everyone. If you are a new mother and are looking to get back into shape or are pregnant and are looking to stay fit, try out our Prenatal/Postnatal Fitness class. For those adults looking for an all-body workout we have Body Sculpting. This class will improve your flexibility, strength and have you burning calories. Some of you might be looking to flatten and tone up your midsection. Phenomenal Abdominals can offer you what you’re looking for and help you reach your goals.

Do you your kids love to dance and jump around? If they do and would like to learn the dance move, wait no longer and sign them up. Depending on their age, skill level and interest we can help you out. We have Ballet, Ballet Advanced Beginner and Jazz all starting up next week.

More information regarding all of these programs can be found at our website at or by stopping by the Recreation Center at 28955 Hilliard Blvd, call us at 440-808-5700 or by picking up our new Rec Gazette.
