While some people may have already forgotten their New Year’s resolutions, we still have fitness on our minds. Since our Wayland Fitness Center Open House is this Thursday, we invited Catherine Behrendt and the crew from WZZM’s My West Michigan to stop by the Wayland Fitness Center for a tour and to get some tips on using a stability ball for exercising – at home, at work, and in the gym.
Janis is demonstrating how to use the ball to stabilize your core, and work your arm muscles.
John showed how the exercise ball can be used in place of an office chair. This method enhances balance while keeping your core engaged. In the background you’ll see Keith preparing to use the stability ball to increase the intensity of his push ups.
You can see the segment in its entirety below, or click here. And if you have any questions on how to use stability balls, or fitness in general, feel free to get in touch!

Relay for Life is an organization that we support each year. We have teams that participate in both the Sparta and Wayland events. Our goal for each relay is to donate $1000 and so far we have raised over $6,000! We’re so proud of our team members who gave their time to this wonderful cause.
Here are some members of our Wayland team making their way around the track.
Our two superstar therapists, Susan and Jen, decided to walk for ALL 24 HOURS if the team could raise $1,000. Their feet were so tired at the end of the relay, and the rain didn’t help, but these girls were troopers!
A big thanks to our Wayland team members for their commitment…you ladies did a wonderful job!
