Children must be promptly picked up at 3pm. This is open to all children 5-11 years old on a Program & Fitness membership. Space is limited and registration is required by emailing jfate@lauriannwestcc.org.

Workout of the Week

Try this “every minute on the minute” style workout as a core finisher to really get your abs fired up after a class or workout! Here’s how it works – at the start of each minute you complete the number of reps, and whatever time you have left in that minute is your rest time before doing the next exercise. Repeat 2-3 times total for a quick core circuit! 

  • 1st minute: 30 seated twists (with or without weight)
  • 2nd minute: 15 reverse crunches
  • 3rd minute: 30 shoulder taps (in a high plank position or can lower to knees)
  • 4th minute: 20 bicycle crunches

*To make this workout more scaled towards a beginner level decrease the reps in each minute by 5-10. To make it more advanced try adding 10-15 reps.

 

Summer Camp Volunteer Opportunity
