Join in a Melt Down - Fitness Center Offers Variety of Workout Options

“Big losers are the real winners at the second Great G/K Melt Down. The Melt Down will kick off from 1-3 p.m. Saturday at the Genoa/Kingston Fitness Center inside Genoa-Kingston High School, 980 Park Ave. ‘There were over 75 attendees at last year's Melt Down,’ said fitness center director Holly Ber. ‘In five weeks, there was a total of 275 pounds and 550 inches lost.’
‘You do not have to be a fitness center member to join the Melt Down,’ Ber said. ‘You can join as an individual or as a team. We're there to help you, and it's a lot of fun.’ Participants will have their body weight and measurements taken, along with a professional body fat analysis. Fitness experts, including the fitness center's registered dietitian/sports nutritionist, will offer advice on setting up each person's health and fitness program. Melt Down participants will be offered discounts on all fitness programs, classes, personal training, nutritional guidance, and fitness center membership. The fitness center opened two years ago. The Genoa Township Park District and Genoa-Kingston Community Unit District 424 worked together to make the fitness center available to the public. ‘The community was thrilled to have a place to work out,’ Ber said. Because it operates inside a high school, the fitness center is only open when students are not in class. Equipment at the fitness center includes new Cybex Total Access resistance/toning equipment, treadmills, ellipticals, free weights, and advanced weight training and specialty training equipment. Handicapped-accessible equipment also is available.”,3_1_EL17_A3GKFITNESS_HM_S1.article
