November 2016:  The weather is changing and you may not be getting in all the outdoor exercise you were over the summer.  There are a number of options available indoors at the Northview Fitness Center.  In addition to our state-of-the-art fitness center, our indoor walking track is a great way to log a few miles.  Bring a friend and get in a good workout.  If you haven’t taken advantage of all the pool has to offer, you should.  There are programs for people of all fitness levels, as well as non-members.

  • Water Aerobics (ideal for beginners, seasoned athletes, pregnant or new moms, and people with limited mobility): Want a low impact workout that can burn up to 500 calories in an hour?  Water aerobics builds cardio, strength and resistance all while easing stress on your joints, plus you don’t have to be a member to take a class.  Beginners can feel comfortable in the water; you don’t have to know how to swim.  Seasoned athletes will love the endurance and flexibility it provides on “off” days.  Pregnant women and people with limited mobility will love the ease on joints and the assistance water gives with balance.  Classes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
    ● New Lap Swim Hours:  Available to all members, now with extended hours.  Stop by Saturday 8-11 a.m., and Monday through Thursday from 8-9:15 p.m.
    ● Open Swim for Community Members:  Stop by for family fun time on Saturday and Sunday from 12-3 p.m.  It’s just $3 per person and membership is not required.
    ● Personal Training:  There are now extended daytime hours for our personal training program.  Plus, our new swim personal training program, designed to help you improve your stroke technique and race strategy, is ideal for triathletes and competitive swimmers.

In addition to the pool and walking track, there are yoga, HIIT and TRX® classes. You can get schedules and sign up at www.northernpts.com/classes. Call 616.365.6140 to get more details.

March 2016:  5 Reasons to Run Your First 5kYou have goals to get in shape, but you hit the snooze button instead of hitting the gym.  If that sounds familiar, you’re not alone.  A great way to stay on track is to sign up for a race.  Once it’s on paper it’s much more likely to happen.  Here are 5 reasons to make a spring 5k your goal:

  1. Running is an awesome workout. Even if you’re just starting out, you’ll burn some serious calories, raise your heart rate, get the blood flowing and relieve stress.  2. It’s a short race.  It might not seem like it on day 1, but in just 8 short weeks you can train for a 5k and cross the finish line.  3. Running makes you happy.  A runner’s high is real and its caused by the endocrine system in your body. 4. Support a great cause.  Most organized runs are attached to a specific charity or cause. 5. Crossing the finish line is exhilarating!

How Do I Get Started?  A couch to 5k program, like our new RunFit 5k training program, is great way to start.  You’ll be training with a fun group of people who are all beginners, too.  Each week we’ll progress in speed and distance, all under the guidance of sports rehab
