We’re so excited to announce the New Year, New You community open house at the Wayland Community Fitness Center on January 14 from 5-7pm. It’s family-friendly so bring the kids along!
We’ll have some really great meet and greets with elite athletes Gina Otterbein and Griff Griffin, who will be sharing their experiences and training tips and providing personal motivation. Gina is a triathlete and marathon runner who has qualified for the 2016 Boston Marathon. Griff decided to be a triathlete 5 years ago at the age of 52 after having been a remarkably poor athlete in high school. Since then she’s represented Team USA in 4 world championships at the sprint distance.
Attendees will also have the chance to visit with several local wellness vendors who’ll be featuring free samples and products available at discounted prices. Businesses include Northern Physical Therapy, Vitamin World, Gazelle Sports, Inbalance Health Protein Bars.
Matt Casterline, PT and personal trainer, will be on hand providing free Functional Movement Screenings, which are used by many of today’s top professional athletes including those in the NFL. You’ll also have a chance to win an annual fitness center membership, a free 3 month membership, a free 1 hour massage and lots of other great stuff! Tour the facility, learn about upcoming programs like personal training, group fitness classes, swim lessons and receive FREE fitness advice from expert staff!
