Free fitness sessions offered Oct. 15.

Spaces remain for city-sponsored camps

MILTON, GA., Oct. 7, 2010 - The City of Milton Parks and Recreation Department and Milton-based CorePhysique today announced there will be free sessions on Friday, Oct. 15 for residents interested in joining the city's inaugural fitness camps.

Those curious about the camps, which are hosted at Bell Memorial Park (15245 Bell Park Road), can experience them first-hand at no charge Oct. 15 in each of the offered sessions: 5:45, 7:30, 8:30 and 9:15 a.m. They will be hosted by Milton resident and mother of three Kolleen Riddick, a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist.

"I've heard a lot of good feedback since we announced the city-sponsored program," said Riddick, "so I figured giving a free session would help give everyone an idea of what we're offering."

Riddick said participants in the free sessions need only bring water, a mat and hand weights. No prior registration is needed, and all Milton residents are invited.

The camps, offered in four separate sessions three times a week, will start Monday, Oct. 18. Riddick said there are still spots available in each of the times offered. However, residents looking to enroll in the 7:30 and 9:15 a.m. sessions should act quickly, as they are nearly full.

For Milton residents, the four week camps (12 full sessions) will be offered at a special rate of $90. For non-residents the cost rises to $120. The price includes an informational booklet and personal fitness journal, nutrition coaching and enrollment in one of four camps:

Early Riser: 5:45 a.m.
Just Right: 7:30 a.m.
New session: 8:30 a.m.
Late Riser: 9:15 a.m.

Please note that camps are limited to just 30 participants per session.

A great value - just $7.50 per 45-minute session - each camp includes a warm-up and workout that combines strength, cardiovascular endurance and flexibility exercises.
