Fall festivities at the Westlake Rec

The Westlake Recreation Center is in the full swing of fall programming. We have fitness classes, classes for the kids and teens, family programs and more. As the weather forces you inside, don’t fall into the rut. Stay busy and venture on up to the Rec Center to see what we have to offer.

We have several family programs coming up. To start off we have the Funutation Family workshop, Family BINGO, the Haunted Chalk Walk and the Fall Festival. Take a look at our website or the current issue of the Rec Gazette for dates and times.

Don’t worry kids, we have programming that is just for you. Junior Hapkido is a fun way to learn martial arts. The DEN Instruction class will teach you the importance of exercising and nutrition. Under the Sea Tea is a great for the little ones to make a craft, have a snack and read a fun story. Learn Karate and its hidden values or watch a Magician work his tricks and then learn some magic of your own.

Parents, if you’re looking for school-oriented programs we can help you out. Starting October 14 tutoring will begin for reading and math for kids in grades K-8.  As we’re on the school subject, we can also help you out when the kids don’t have school. We offer a No School Day Camp that will be taking place Friday, Oct. 15. Sign up soon as spots are filling up fast.

There are plenty of programs for adults, too. Getting used to the fitness room equipment can be confusing; luckily we have a class to help you out. Fitness equipment instruction will go over the Cybex equipment and will have you working out in no time. Rookie rotations will cover basics of Spinning, then you will be on your way to spin more often. If you have already taken this class or have been Spinning for a while, the Cycle and Core will be a challenging work out that will get your legs pumping and your abs crunching.

Calling all moms: We know that it’s hard to get a workout in with having to find someone to watch your little one or to find the time to fit exercise into your busy schedule. The Mom and Munchkin class can help you out. While you are in class, our staff will look after your child. 

Looking for a challenge? Try one of these classes instead: Tai Chi uses gentle movements, steady breathing and promotes health and well being. The fluidity of these movements will help you reduce your stress. Or for some high energy moves, try Zumba and dance your way with the music and have fun burning calories.

More information regarding all of these programs can be found at our website at http://www.cityofwestlake.org/recreation, by stopping by the Recreation Center at 28955 Hilliard Blvd, calling us at 440-808-5700 or by picking up our new Rec Gazette.
