Wellness Center Orientations

 

We understand that exercise equipment can be overwhelming.  Maybe this sounds familiar to you? "Where does this pin go?  How do I start this thing?"  In the Wellness Center we believe that with some caring and careful attention to your needs, we can provide you with a positive exercise experience.  The Wellness Center currently offers 3 different orientations to help you get started on a safe and efficient exercise program.  We strongly recommend that all new members take advantage of this free service we provide.  If you have already taken one of the orietations but you need a little refresher, please stop and ask a friendly Wellness Center attendant to sign you up.  

 

Please stop and ask a Wellness Center attendant next time you are in or call us! La Crosse (608-782-9622 ext 244) or North (608-782-9622 ext 141)
