Ring in the new year, fitness style

From the staff of the Westlake Recreation Center, we want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! Welcome to 2014; now it’s time to hit the treadmill, weights or stop by and take a Zumba class. If you like your bike, try one of our spinning classes. Check out our fitness class schedule online at www.wlrec.org.

With the New Year come new programs. Starting over the next few weeks are classes ranging from Little Sneakers to Silver Sneakers. Young or slightly older, the Westlake Recreation Department probably has something for you. 

Ring in 2014 with Adult Pickle-Ball Open Gym. Not sure what this? Stop by on Tuesday, Jan. 14, from 1-2:30 p.m. and see what this game is all about. It is played like tennis, but on a smaller court and with rules like Ping-Pong. You can drop in on a daily basis to play or sign up for the entire session.

Swimming lessons have started back up, come and dive into the warm waters of our aquatic area. We offer swimming lessons for the very young all the way up. Water aerobics: yep, we have that as well. 

Our Little Sneakers play time is for children ages up to five. This area allows children to run, jump, crawl, laugh and play in our gym. We set up the equipment and you come and have fun. A chance to have play dates in the comfort of our warm and cozy gym.

Our fitness department also has classes dealing in the martial arts. Junior Hapkido is for kids ages 5-13. For a family activity, try our Karate class on Friday nights. Want to dance? We offer Wildfire Dance for children ages 3-18 as well as Hip Hop for Kids, grades 3-6. For even more youth fitness classes, try our Tumble Bugs program for ages 4-6 or our Junior Fit Camp for grades 5-12. The DEN is always there for children ages 10-14.

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