Bodyweight exercises do not require weights other than one’s own self. Because of this, they are the ideal choice for individuals who are interested in fitness but do not have access to strength training equipment.  Most bodyweight exercises require only the use of a floor.  They can be done everywhere.  Exercises can be adjusted, substituted, or modified to meet an individual’s needs.   Self-awareness, self-confidence and self-control are easier to obtain when the main resistance is oneself.

Swim Clinic 

Located at Zuegner (Skyland) Recreation Center.  Gym Me Swim Clinic is for anyone who would like to perform better in the water.  We breakdown each stroke into it's component parts, concentrating on drills to enhance efficiency.  Effiicient strokes will allow the swimmer to last longer and swim faster with less effort and not as prone to injury that swimming sloppy can produce.  The class has the competitive swimmer in mind, however the tri-athlete, seal candidate, and cross training athlete, and even beginner swimmer have been able to benefit greatly from this class.

What makes Gym Me classes different?

Creating accountability through community atmosphere:
This class uniquely makes newcomers feel welcome and instantly a part of the group.  Feeling like part of this diverse group, who recognizes when participants are not present, creates accountability.  It also, makes it fun.

A diverse group:
We work with men and women of all ages, shapes, colors and sizes.  People start fitness wherever they are.  If you are already in great condition, you will be surprised at the results after the 9 weeks.  If you have seldom exercised,-then you will be surprised of what you are capable and will benefit the most.  For the first time student the average increase in push-ups is 92% and on sit-ups74% .  Don’t feel discouraged if you are not able to do everything. Participants rarely are able to do all of the exercises, but are still able to participate.  Remember, “10% of something is better than 100% of nothing”.

No intimidating equipment:
These exercises are tough.  They will leave you sore, sometimes for days after your workout.  This class uses nothing but your own body weight and gravity as resistance. Using your body weight when exercising allows you to recover faster and maintain the benefits longer.  You will become more self-aware and have greater self-confidence.

You should consult your physician before beginning a new exercise program.
