First Steps to Fitness
Program Type: Local Effort - Programs and/or activities that have not been evaluated but are identified by local programs as producing positive results.
A grant administered through Bayfield County Recreation Center is targeting outreach to Red Cliff Community Health Center patients in need of a fitness regimen to address health issues. This will be done through referrals to the First Steps to Fitness Program from Red Cliff Health Center Providers. The program provides at least three training sessions with a Personal Trainer and the first month membership fee free of charge. These sessions will include a simple physical assessment, help participant create an exercise regimen that can be done at the Recreation Center or in their community/home, and follow up to see if their exercise program needs any adjustments or if further education is required. There will also be follow up through Red Cliff Health Center for improvement in general health measured by before and after weight, patient report, and maintenance of membership at Bayfield Recreation Center.
