Achieving Fitness Goals at Green Ridge Rec. Center

Happy 2023, RoCo! 

It's day three of the new year, the first day back to work for some from the long weekend, which means it's go-time on achieving those New Drone footage of Green RidgeYear's resolutions. Some of the most popular resolutions every year are to lose weight, be healthier, or exercise more. My goal is to get in 40 minutes of exercise three times a week, so I headed over to Green Ridge to see what they had in store. To my surprise and excitement, they have a little bit of everything!

The indoor facility offers so many things from free weights, a fitness studio for classes, cardio and weight machines, basketball courts, an indoor track, and an indoor pool- complete with water slides. They really do have it all, and I didn't know where to start. 

Luckily, they offer one freMachine weights at Green Ridgee session with a trainer upon starting a membership. This allows you to ask any questions, discuss fitness goals, and make sure you are properly executing the exercises.

I met with Leah to go over my form for a number of different machine weights, and she also showed me some free weight exercises. Having her alongside me gave a boost of confidence because I knew I was doing things correctly.

Scott showed me around the facility where we checked out the basketball court, that sometimes get used as a pickleball court, and the indoor pool. I got to challenge someone to a 1-on-1 basketball matchup and let's just say it's been awhile since I've played! The indoor pool was super nice with the water slides, sauna, and lazy river. 

The membership packages are super inclusive towards everyone- families, single parents, individuals, 55 or better. I could really tell how much they made this a community and are even on a first name basis with members. 

I'm excited to see how Green Ridge helps me with my fitness goals this year. Check out more about Green Ridge here

See you in the weight room!
