Wythe County to Offer Open Gym & Fitness Classes at Sheffey This January

This week, Wythe County Parks & Recreation announced that the department would be offering open gym for basketball and walking at Sheffey Community Gym beginning on Saturday, January 21st and then throughout February and into the spring.  The gymnasium will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to noon.

In addition to open gym hours, the county’s Parks & Recreation Department will also be offering two separate fitness classes for the community:

Fusion Fit Classes will be held at 6 p.m. every Monday and Thursday starting on Thursday, January 19th and are slated to end in early-March.  The one-hour session will utilize light weights, which will be provided, and cardio.

Functionally Fit Class will be held at 5 p.m. every Thursday starting on Thursday, January 19th and is also slated to end in early-March.  This class is aimed at specifically helping adults 50-years-old and older stay in shape and maintain a health, active lifestyle.

Because space is limited for both classes, individuals wishing to participate are encouraged to register by contacting Kevin Williams (276-223-4519 or rkwilliams@wytheco.org).  Cost to participate in this program is only $10 per session.

“During the winter months, people often get discouraged and become less active.  Our goal for this program is to help the people of the local community stay active and assist them in making healthy lifestyle choices through the early months of the year,” said Kevin Williams, director of the county’s Parks & Recreation Department.

Additional information concerning activities at the Sheffey Community Gym, including a calendar of events, will be available to the public on the official Facebook page of the Sheffey Community Gym: Facebook.com/SheffeyGym
