Idea Fair

Fitness Then and Now


How has this idea enhanced your club's operation, etc.?

Two of our instructors (one in his 20’s one in her 50’s) decided to teach a class that would span the ages, both in the ages of the participants as well as the different styles of exercise that have been experienced through the years. From high impact dance aerobics, step aerobics, and Tae Bo to the more current offerings of barre fitness, functional training, and modern kettle bell training.

Prizes were given to those who dressed retro in exercise apparel.

This event helped in bringing some of our fit younger members and less active older members together in the fitness center.

These two groups are usually separated by class formats and scheduled times, so this was a great way to bring the two groups together in a fun non-competitive environment.

How was this idea implemented, and what have been the club members' reactions?

This was taught as a one-time special class. It was held on a Saturday morning when the majority of members were available to attend.

We played music that spanned the decades and that members could relate to as “aerobics or exercise music”.

They enjoyed it so much that they want it as annual offering.
