Wellness Center offers kids programs to community

The Blount Memorial Wellness Center at Springbrook’s “Especially for Kids” program is open to both members’ and non-members’ children.

The center’s program is filled with fitness-based classes for 8- to 12-year-olds. Members pay the WellKid rate per class, and for non-members, the cost of each class is $5.

“WellKid Swim” starts at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, April 8, 15, 22 and 29. Kids swim for one hour and accumulate mileage in the pool, which has one lane marked off in an effort to teach kids how to swim with others.

“FitKid Classes” meet at 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, April 7, 14, 21 and 28 and on Wednesdays, April 9, 16, 23 and 30.

“Junior Fittrek” – a 30-minute outdoor interval class - meets at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, April 8, 15, 22 and 29 and on Thursdays, April 3, 10, 17 and 24.

For more information, call the center at 865-980-7100.
