If your New Year’s resolutions include getting fitter in 2023, Loveland’s Chilson Recreation Center can help you keep them on track.
Starting Monday, the center will offer monthly incentives to keep you motivated and working toward your goals.
“We are really excited heading into 2023 and building even further in 2022. I was trying to get my stuff back.So I think 2023 is going to be a lot of fun.”
A new slate of promotions will begin on Monday, with 5-visit punch cards for sale through Groupon. The program, which was introduced last year and aims to bring beginners to the centre, has shown promising signs, according to Herke.
Chilson also set up a “commitment” board where guests can post healthy New Year’s resolutions and participate in a raffle for merchandise from the center’s pro shop.
For those willing to post these goals publicly, the center also offers group exercise classes, “state-of-the-art” cardio and strength training equipment, indoor tracks, lap pools, personal training, and even nutrition. There are many options for responsibilities, such as classes. .
“Soul Fusion” group classes, which combine elements of yoga, Pilates and meditation, are particularly popular right now, as are Stages indoor cycling classes, Helke says.
“People want to get in shape for cycling, but they can’t or don’t want to be outside in the winter,” she explained. The thing is, you can set up the app on your smartphone and play against yourself.”
The center also recently installed a “hot new trend,” an LED red light therapy bed, Helke said.
“The nice thing about us compared to what you see at other spas and wellness clinics around town is that we are FDA cleared,” she said. “… the light helps us in many ways.”
According to WebMD.com, exposure to low levels of red or near-infrared light can treat muscle and joint pain and skin conditions.
If your fitness commitments continue beyond January, the promotion will continue. February will feature weekly “Love Yourself” activities aimed at self-care. On Valentine’s Day, members can bring an adult guest for free.
In addition to promoting personal training packages in March, the center will offer low-cost unlimited passes for Spring Break, March 11-19.
During the first week of April, Chilson guests can search for Easter Eggs, including coupons for passes, pro shops, snack bars, and more. Then, in May, the center will host Cinco de Mayo’s Zumba he event.
Details for the rest of Chilsson’s promotions for this year have yet to be finalized, but Herke has promised they will be “innovative.”
In the meantime, Helke and her team are gearing up for a busy year of parks and recreational events, starting with one of her all-time favorites, the Mountainfilm on Tour series, which kicks off at the Rialto Theater on January 28. I’m here.
“It’s a fun movie with lots of different things like biking, hiking, swimming, skateboarding, kayaking, and lots of outdoor sports,” she said. “But they’re also very focused on human stories and connections with people. … I always leave with a laugh or a cry.”
Herke is also excited about the city’s new coming-of-age sports day event at Mehaffey Park in May. He competes in teams of eight in life-size beer pong, cornhole, ax throwing and other activities. It also hosts speed gambling competitions featuring casino games.
“It’s going to be fun,” said Herke. “We enjoy building and testing all the pieces.”
The Chilson Center will be closed on New Year’s Day, but will return to normal schedule on January 2nd. Learn more about the center at bit.ly/3IaeBpo.
