Get Fit for Free: Community Center Launches Free Intro to Fitness Program

The Fort Ritchie Community Center is thrilled to announce the launch of its Spring Training Program, a new initiative aimed at promoting health and wellness. Starting Monday, April 1st, the community center will offer complimentary fitness classes to individuals of all ages and fitness levels.

To make exercise more accessible to everyone, regardless of financial constraints, the community center, in partnership with Healthy Washington County and the Rural Maryland Council, will provide introductory fitness classes free of charge. The classes will include Intro to Cardio, Yoga, and a Pilates-style class called Mix’d Flow.

“Beginning or returning to exercise can be intimidating so we hope to provide an opportunity for local residents to try it out in a safe and fun environment without worrying about cost,” said Buck Browning, executive director of the community center. “By offering these free fitness classes, we hope to encourage people to try something new that could ultimately make a big difference in their quality of life.”

The classes will be led by certified instructors who are passionate about helping individuals reach their fitness goals. Whether participants are beginners looking to kickstart their fitness journey or seasoned athletes seeking to challenge themselves, there will be something for everyone.

Intro to cardio will allow participants to get a sweat going and raise their heart rate through simple movements. Mats will be provided for participants in Yoga and Mix’d Flow. Each class encourages participants to go at their own pace with some modifications offered by instructors as needed.

The free classes will be offered as follows:
Monday 5 pm Intro to Cardio
Monday 6 pm Vinyasa Yoga
Thursday 6 pm Mix’d Flow
Saturday 10 am Vinyasa Yoga

Though the classes are free, participants are encouraged to pre-register to attend by visiting the website or by calling the community center at 301-241-5085.
