Free Summer Fitness Program for Youth

The Corner Health Center is sponsoring a summer fitness program for community youth to begin Monday, June 17th. The program will run on Monday and Wednesday afternoons throughout the summer, starting at 3:30pm until approximately 5pm. Classes will take place at the Corner Health Center and will include yoga, ZUMBA, Pilates, functional training, and team sport instruction. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in a Couch to 5K program that will culminate in a group run in August. Registration is now open (visit the Corner Health Center to sign up) and participation is free! Snacks, equipment, babysitting, clothing, and water will be provided. Participants will also be able to take part in a weekly raffle for gift cards, tickets, and other incentives based on their weekly attendance.

About Turn the Corner

Begun in 2012, Turn the Corner, or TTC, seeks to provide participants with everything necessary to begin and sustain a regular practice of exercise.  Need shoes? We can set you up! Require a babysitter for a sibling or child? Certified babysitters are available. Motivation? That’s covered too—in a fun, unique, and collaborative program that takes into account the needs and goals of attendees and incentivizes their participation. The Turn the Corner program recognizes that exercise is difficult—particularly when there are so many barriers to young adult participation. We provide an innovative and welcoming solution to the often challenging entity that is getting fit.

What Can You Do?

Turn the Corner is seeking registrants, donors, and teachers who would like to make a difference in the lives of community youth this summer!  If you’re certified to teach a sport or exercise activity, can donate healthy snacks or a few dollars, or want to come and work out with us, please contact Molly Fessler (bWZlc3NsZXJAYnJ5bm1hd3IuZWR1), the program organizer.

Come get fit, get flexible, and have fun with TTC this summer!
