The Ketcham Community Center on the campus of North Central Missouri College has announced the availability of free fitness classes during the month of December. These classes will meet from 5:15 p.m. till 6:15 p.m. in the Sugg Room of the KCC.
According to Holly Ropp, KCC fitness instructor and former Kansas City Chiefs cheerleader, the free classes are offered as an incentive to encourage persons to enroll in regular fitness classes when they begin again in January. “Patrons can try out different types of classes to see which best fits their needs prior to actually paying for a class,” she explained.
Pilates and Introduction to Yoga will be offered December 2 through 5. Pilates is a floor-based class, and Introduction to Yoga is a fundamental Yoga class focused on breathing, balance, strength building and flexibility.

There is a limit of 20 persons per class; therefore, those interested should pre-register by calling the KCC at 660 359-3948 ext. 1450.
